while wedding planning?? Sometimes I serioulsy stop and think, all this is so dumb…why am I putting myself through all this? We should have just gone no frills but my wedding is now a monsterous beast.
If anyone ever feels this way..please tell your story. Thanks.
At this point it’s too late for me….so the rest of you save yourselves!

Lol!!!! I have moments like that. Especially with time consuming things like DIY projects. But it usually passes 🙂

I had plenty of moments like that…and I consider myself a very laid back bride! But I finally snapped last night and said…’ya know what?! Eff-it!’ I’m getting married on Saturday and was wishing that I just did Justice of the Peace….but then realized everything will be fine.

I just asked Fiance last week if it’s too late to elope . He said yes, considering we just sent out most of our invites haha. I feel like there’s too much stress and drama leading up to the big day.. we were engaged almost two years specifically to avoid all that. Oh well I guess it’s inevitable when having a wedding for 185 guests.

I hit that moment a couple weeks ago.
Know what I did?
I dropped a bunch of things. No programs, no concern of other people’s transportation, no fancy coffee bar…. don’t care.
Such a relief! You should consider dropping some things too 🙂

I’m there now. I tried to talk my Fiance into just canceling the wedding and getting married at the JOP and saying that’s that. He didn’t go for it. Our families are at it, I just fought with his mother today and my sister/MOH is being nothing but a jealous brat.
BUT on the brightside…it will end up being a beautiful, fun day filled with love and family.
…..I’m sure if we keep syaing that to ourselves we’ll believe it and get through this! Good luck!

yes everytime I think about the money I want to punch myself. Other than that it’s going pretty well and I’m staying calm and go with the flow about everything so I’m ok.
I was the one that wanted JOP to begin with though- the wedding is for the families, not for us.

All the freakin time I thought this.
I’m so glad it’s over.
I like looking at other people’s ideas and giving opinions but I was soooo relived once ours was finally done with.

to be honest, no. i never thought that at all. i loved every minute of it and i planned the whole wedding from out of country. came back to ontario 9 days before the wedding. i am incredibly organized…almost to a fault.
i know a lot of brides do feel overwhelmed. don’t worry, don’t stress. let me know if you need me to talk you off the ledge.

For me, it helped me focus on why I decided to have a big wedding (when I’d have those panic moments).
The other thing I kept wondering was if I’d feel it was worth all the pain…. and, it DEFINITELY was!

I’ve never been super into it all…. So many things, truly, do not matter that much to me.
I’m VERY excited to be getting married, but I’m ready for it to happen. My mom is more excited about the whole “show” of it all than I am…. I’m just ready to be beautiful for the day- marry my love- have awesome pictures to look back at and go on our honeymoon…. 51 days and counting!!!

I keep taking breaks from wedding planning specifically for that reason. Trust me, a weekend with my fiance doing things completely not wedding-related is such a relief!

I have had a lot of those thoughts about DIYing invitations. I mean, you can DIY invitations without going to the lengths that I have. It’s SO MUCH WORK

I’ve felt that way now for months, I can’t wait for it to be over. I put so much time and work into this and now noone is even sending back their r s v p’s. 🙁

My wedding is in 2 days. TWO DAYS. And I have felt like this for exactly 6 months now…… I don’t know how it got so out of control and when that happened! We should have just eloped!
