I know how you felt.  I was so stressed about the planning that by the end I was completely sick of it and wanted it to be over.  Is there any way that you can delegate some tasks so that you can have a little bit of help with the planning?

I am sick of planning as well.  Unfortunately, I can’t take a break until after the wedding is over!  I know a lot of brides will take a mini-break from the wedding.  Maybe you should do no wedding stuff until after the holidays?  Then you can come back refreshed and ready to go!

Yeah I went through that about a month ago and am just starting to get back into the swing of things. I’m gonna take it pretty easy until the holidays are over and then really get back into the swing of things.

YES! I am a year out and already sick of all the small details. We are planning a holiday wedding for 385.  Ugh.

Plus, I am in Sales at a hotel, and part of my job is coordinating events – – including weddings. Plus, I have 12 booked before mine next year.  Can you say BuRn OuT?!

I’m 24 days out and the thought of planning even one more thing stresses me out. And it’s not like there is a lot left to do, but there ARE things that need doing and if I don’t do it, nobody will. Blech

I know what you mean. We have a little over a year before our big day but with everything that goes on in our daily lives I wanted to start planning a bit early and now it’s giving me a headache.

I got sick of planning more times than I can count during my 8 month engagement!  Definitely don’t worry about it.  Take a break from planning and you’ll find that the desire comes back soon enough.  When you get close to the wedding you’ll have to just push through it like otb but you can cross that bridge when you get to it.  You have PLENTY of time.  Don’t feel rushed.  Take a month off if you like.  You’ll start craving it again soon.

Yes! I go through ups and downs – some days I’m really into it, and other days I just don’t feel like it. Taking breaks and delegating has been most helpful for me, as well as focusing on the parts of the wedding that are turning out well and are the most fun to plan.

I had a friend that was having all these problems with her planning a couple years ago, and then the final thing that happened to her was that the reception site burned down!  So, it could be worse!  After that, she gave up on planning for like a year! (She is now happily married with two kids.)

I too, feel like I have ups and downs, but they’re exhausting.  Like yesterday, I hit on a great idea for my Save-The-Date Cards, and was so jazzed about it, and then my photographer canceled on me and I spent the night crying my eyes out.  I constantly feel like I’m not going to pull it together enough to make this wedding work — I’m not going to lose enough weight, I’ll book a crappy caterer, my photos will suck … ugh, the bad feelings just gang up on me and make me feel like poop.  I’d give anything to have a million dollars and just have someone else handle it.

Yes! I had a snapping point last week, it was something small, the purses I wanted to order for my Bridesmaid or Best Man were discontinued. I just kind of said, that’s it I’m done! I even called Fiance and said screw it let’s elope and use the money that we’d use on the wedding to go to Europe. I hate all the details and all the crap for one single day. He liked that idea of Europe, but talked me out of it, he said even if I wanted to elope he still wants a wedding. I took a step back from planning, FI’s helping a lot and so is my mom. It’s nice, even if I still feel like eloping would be great, I know that it’s going to be worth it in the end.
