I am getting irritated with it too. The last couple days it’s become clear how little Fiance knows or cares about the planning. He didn’t even know we were getting married in the evening!

I feel the same way sometimes…I love how Fiance asks questions bc he has no idea what is going on…he has picked his suit and he picked the groomsmen outfits, helped with the food (which I had already selected) and helped pick thevenue ( for the price, we weren’t looking anywhere else). I am so excited and I want to have my special day, but sometimes I want to scream!  We have an entire bedroom full of wedding stuff and he doesn’t realize the amount of money that it takes to have our perfect day.  

 

I also only want to talk about the wedding on my own terms, lol, like when I’m excited or have booked something…if people ask me and I’m not in the mood, it makes me nervous that it should consume MORE of Mylife…at this point, I don’t see how this is possible!

 

i have always wanted to have NSF plan a wedding, but didn’t realize all of the components.  Oh my goodness!  I just want to be married and take a nice honeymoon!!!

So annoyed. I’m getting criticism every which way for having a brunch wedding. The other night my mom and my aunt were ganging up on me, making fun of me over certain menu items. I told them in perfect honesty that if anyone made fun of my decisions again, we’d cancel the wedding and elope. Fiance was sitting right there next to me, and he didn’t protest my statement at all. He’s just as fed up with their bullshit as I am. I am more than ready to scrap this whole ridiculous thing and elope.

I understand your frustration. I LOVE wedding planning but it seems like the past 5 months I haven’t had a conversation that does not revolve around our wedding. My Fiance and I only talk about it when we have to because we are constantly talking about it with everyone else. My grandma has been a huge help but we can’t even do lunch anymore without it being a planning session. Now that we are getting close, I understand because its crunch time but it was super annoying in those early phases when the wedding wasn’t constantly on my mind.

You are not alone! You are doing a great job, you have a bunch of stuff completed. I was a lot like you when I got engaged last June 2012. We had all of the same stuff booked within a month and I purchased my dress in July. I promise it will get a little easier if you stay on track like you have been. We are 3 months away from our wedding and I’m feeling a lot less stressed compared to 2 months ago when I was in the middle of it all.

You should call on your friends to take you out for drinks or have a girls night in and have a rule that no one brings up the wedding all night.

Everyone says this is the most exciting time in your life, but they leave out the part where you want to pull out your hair and cry every day. You will get through this and your wedding day will be here in no time!

100%, I am so over it. I am far too busy with all the other stuff in my life and I am finding it increasingly difficult to care. I find myself wondering if people will even notice if the centrepieces are not perfect or things don’t match. I suspect that they won’t.

I can’t wait to be married and to not have to think about it anymore!

@MissCountryGirl727:  Oh, wow! He is really pitching in! I think Fiance will want to take an active role later on for sure, but he is the worst procrastinator I know and since it’s still just over a year out, he sees it as we have plenty of time. He thought it was crazy I wanted to look at venues for a 2014 wedding in late 2012.

You will have to post pics of the invites once they’re done!

@MissCountryGirl727:  First of all good for you for getting so much done already! Secondly, I can relate 100%! I got a lot of the big things out of the way early on, but my coordinator and my mom were so frustrating. It was like everything was a priority to them all at once, even though I had so much time left. The way they were acting was as if it takes 20 years to plan a freaking wedding, and me thinking I could do it in a year and a half was blasphemous. Lol, so I cancelled the entire thing and will not be including the coordinator in my new plans whatsoever. Good luck to you and just know there’s absolutely nothing wrong with taking a week off!

@thefullmonty:  +1

 

I felt that way through 99% of my planning. It’s only now that I’m in the home stretch (81 Days – yikes!) that I am getting excited as I am seeing the details physically coming together.

I’m right there with you! I spent all weekend crying because I’m so overwhelmed. Currently I’m doing taxes as a second job and that in itself is stressful enough on top of my regular job. Fiance has pitched in alot to help out with the wedding planning. He said not to worry about it and he would get it done. I just have a hard time not worrying.

I got annoyed when I was booking vendors because it felt like I had these meetings all the time, every week!  Once I finally got everyone booked (it was by December)…well, I’ve been much more relaxed since then.  I’m not doing a ton of DIY stuff either…which I like because that is less “stuff” for me to do!  I don’t see why you can’t take some time off from it after you’ve booked all your vendors.  There are still 7 months left!!
