Story of my life!! My fiance is so over it. I am so stressed and getting married the same day as you! Date twins! 

I have so much drama at the moment & I worry I am concentrating on all the minor stuff.

Yup. Mine is April 8th, and I feel like every conversation I have with someone right now is either about work, or the wedding. It’s all encompassing in a bad way. I am very ready for the day to be here!

My Church wedding isn’t till May 2019. Yep.. when we first got engaged last October my brain couldn’t shut up. SO voiced out his boredom and I finally remember the reason of the wedding is to have a committed shared life in future, aka marriage. So we started doing more reflections and discussion to prepare for our marriage. So far so good.. once in a while I still think of the wedding planning bit but I’ve got many things sorted out for the past few months.. and I realise there’s more marriage preparation that we need to do beyond what I thought there were!!!

No. Not at all.

If you’re obsessing over little details that much (and you want to stop doing that), give yourself a break from the tools that enable that behavior. Step away from the computer. Leave the cell phone in another room.

Go to the movies, play a video game, read a book, bake cookies, whatever! Talk to your Fiance about things the two of you care about that aren’t related to the wedding. Go for a walk together if the weather is nice.

Yep I’m very obsessed. Yet I feel it needs my attention so it’s hard for me to switch gears!

I am 32 days out and I have definitely toned down my level of obsession a lot over the last month or so.  I have everything booked, set ups for final payments.  I think once my rsvp date passes, doing the seating chart and finalizing everything will probably kick me back into obsession mode.  But my wedding is March 24th, and except for the absolute final meeting with my venue and my last fitting appointment, all of my decisions will be finalized and final bills paid March 3rd.

I was obsessed at first,  now I can’t be bothered about most of it.  We’re supposed to send out invites in a couple of weeks and the guest list is ready and I have the addresses,  but I haven’t finalizd the actual invites.  Mostly because we go back and forth about the time and building. 

We’re lucky to be doing our reception at our church,  which is free and pretty open for availability.   We booked my parents building and another building nearby,  but we need to commit to one for the reception. And finalize doing it at 11am or 4pm.

We’re getting married the day before so we can do the reception whenever we want on Saturday. I’m leaning toward 4 the more I think about it. 

Oh well,  I love visiting weddingbee,  but need to do the invites and ordering flower girl dresses this week.  Time to focus darn it.

  • Wedding: Church

tiffjewel27 :  I’m getting married on May 19, and I feel like I’m a little behind on things. I’m more excited than nervous at this point. I’m sure the closer we get to the big day, I’ll be shaking in my high heels shoes cause I’m a very shy person. I think of my wedding day almost 24/7. My Honey’s favorite  saying these days is, Keep it simple. He believes we have all the time in the world and things will magically appear lol Don’t I wish 🙂 Awe, he has a heart of gold. but wedding planning  isnt his thing.  He is doing all the invitations addressing, and making some diy projects too like our cake stand and cupcakes stands. He does special things like that in his own special way.

  • Wedding: October 2018

We initially started looking at venues before we got engaged (we were at a premarital bible study group). I felt like it was getting like that. My dad was in price tag shock and started stuff with me at the beginning. My mom is sick and I think he realized we need to do this right for my mom for while she remembers.  My Future Mother-In-Law started a bunch of drama and turned the wedding to about her. I kept on saying anymore drama from either family we would be going to the court house and eloping. That shut up people real fast. My bridal party has been okay. They could be a little more involved but they have their own lives and have been active in the big things (bach party, bridal shower, etc). My fiance and I work opposite schedules so it felt like I was planning the wedding a lot of my own catching up my fiance when we could. All vendors are booked. A lot of things filled up fast due to fall wedding. Just have to look at the smaller details. Things have been smoother. I do not talk about the wedding to my Future Mother-In-Law to avoid conflict. She will do the cake and we will only talk about the cake.
