I can also relate. I’m just so DONE with this wedding. I’m ready to be on the honeymoon already. That doesn’t mean I’m not looking forward to the day and seeing my friends and family, I’m just ready to be married already!

Not going to lie, I’m not even engaged yet and yet everyone seems to be more excited than I am about ME getting married. I’m more of the “buckle down, get it done now and enjoy the fruits of my labor later” type of person. Not to say that I don’t LOVE researching things, but it’s a bit scary and really, I just want to be married more than I want to have a wedding.

I could have written this post myself 🙂 2 weeks out, not at all excited. Like you, I’m super excited to marry my guy but I actually kind of dread the wedding itself, even though we purposely kept it small and nontraditional. And of course I can’t really admit that to anyone out loud, because who really dreads their wedding?

I feel the same way. I’m not very excited, just too much left to do. If one more person says it will all come together and than doesnt offer to help in a concrete way, I’m going to scream at some one.  I’m also trying to sell my condo and move at same time. Yuck

We have the same wedding date. I was going to post, “I’m not excited about my wedding!” and then I saw yours! We are in the thick of it. I realized that this board thrives on the “dreaming” faze. It’s super fun when you are cooking up your dream vision wedding, but for us, that’s all done. Now we are in execution of said desires. I have the same bridal parties as you. I think if I asked Fiance for a list of portraits, he’d laugh. He goffed at me when I asked for help on the seating chart. But I think I have a particularly uninvolved Fiance because he is out of town. I said, “Why are you complaining about this when you are doing nothing for the wedding?” He said, “I do lots of things for the wedding.” I said, “Like what?” He said, “You’re putting me on the spot and I can’t think of anything right now.” –This, does not make me excited. I could think of fifty things I had done for the wedding in the last five minutes. That is not a good sign. The fact that you are not jumping up and down when you have many things to execute in the next two weeks is normal.

Good luck. I understand a little too well.

Here lately I’ve calmed down on the excitement. I’ve only got little stuff to get together now, but it like, I’m just ready for it to be over with. Some people get aggrivated at me and say “It’s suppose to be your once in a life time thing. Get happy!”   And I am happy. I’m just tired of planning.

And Last month, on his 22nd birthday, Fiance severly sprained his ankle. (on the 7th of the month) At first we thought it was broke. But the MRI’s say that it isn’t. He’s doing a lot better, but he’s off work. Thank God for short term disability! When we get married, we’re going to be living in his mobile home until we can get our finished. I was really wanting ours to be ready when we came home from the wedding. But things happen. We’re shooting for having it ready by time Christmas gets here. I love the mobile home. It’s just SO pretty!

So really, I’ve been stressed out since last month. I’ve not been getting much sleep, (between trips from my home, to pick him up and take him to the doctor or physical therapist, and to my work. I’m glad he only lives 10 miles from me. LOL. We don’t live together, or stay the night with one another.) We’ve been getting snappy with one another, but I think it’s stress, if you ask me.

So running around all the time, taking care of him, working 8-9 hour days ( 5 – 7 days a week), AND trying to put the finishing touches on our wedding. I’m stressed to the max. I got exactly one month from yesterday before I walk down the aisle.

I rambled. LOL! But if it helps, my excitement has kinda fissled out a bit. LOL! But I still can’t wait. 😀

I am two months out and am SLOWLY getting excited.  I have been extremely nervous about the wedding itself (family getting along, everything going well, etc) and stressed, overwhelmed, etc which has led me to not being very excited.  Just like you, I am perfectly excited and happy to be married and after the day is over I think I will breathe a huge sigh of relief!  So don’t worry, you are definitely not alone!  I could never be a wedding planner professionally… ugh!
