Don’t get me wrong, I am very very excited to marry my man, but at this point we have been engaged for 14 months and we are 24 days out from the wedding and it seems like its all anyone wants to talk about and I’m beginning to feel a bit apathetic about the wedding itself. (Not being married, just the actual wedding..) maybe this comes from some frustration. Our wedding is essentially a destination wedding for 2/3s of our guests and of the 176 we invited about 100 are coming, which is great for something so far away I suppose, but with almost 50% not coming my feelings are a little bit hurt. Add to it the fact that my venue is making us pay for 125 adults no matter what and I’m a bit frustrated. This is normal, right?

Yep. I’m 4 months out and I just started getting back into the swing of it. I haven’t wanted to deal with any wedding crap the last couple months.
I think it goes in phases really. I guarantee that when I get to the less than a month mark, I will be sick of all of it too.

Totally normal. I promise when the day comes you will be really happy and excited to celebrate with all the people you love who ARE there.

I am having this too! I’m so over the wedding. I don’t want to do anymore planning. I think it’s ’cause all the “fun stuff” is done. Now, it’s calling the people that didn’t RSVP, sending checks, seating charts etc. Plus, everyone making demands, I want to bring a guest now, I want to sit with______. Ugh!

Thanks guys, and Future Mrs Kirsch, exactly! And all the checks to write! not fun at all!!!! And I’m having second thoughts on the venue and my dress and all these little things. (again no second thoughts on the actual marriage part!)

totally! the people want to talk wedding with you but you’re thinking and talking wedding all the time! but THEY aren’t, and they assume that’s what you want to chat about. You can be gracious and tell them how nice it is to spend time with them b/c you’ve been so stressed with wedding planning – that’ll change the topic some 😉
Don’t worry! it’s almost here. Totally normal..

OUr venue had a 155 person minimum and we only had 125 people there. we paid for empty plates essentially

I think this is totally natural. The amount I’m “into” the wedding ebbs and flows. (Like you said, I’m TOTALLY into the marriage bit!) Some days/weeks/months I’m totally into planning and thinking about every little detail. Other days/weeks/months, I’m like “whatever” or “screw the wedding, let’s run off to Tuscany and elope!!”.
The days I most feel like running off to Tuscany to elope are the days I have to write big checks to vendors, or deal with wedding related, family-induced drama.
