Oh my gosh, yes! I felt guilty for feeling that way, but I’m glad to know I’m not the only one. No one prepares you for the stress! It doesn’t help that I’m (a) indecisive, and (b) I care about all the small details, AND (c) my mom has been clashing with me on a lot of the planning. I’ve gotten a little better at managing the stress and calming down. I am in no way a bridezilla, but there have been times where I’ve just cried because I got so overwhelmed. Hope it gets better for you!!

I’ve definitely felt that way too! You’re not alone at all.

@KendraLeigh:  I felt that way somewhere in the middle of our engagement. Then I really thought about it and said “if it causes too much stress, if it brings more drama then joy, i don’t need it.” I cut out a LOT of wedding details. Things are super simple now. It’s made the planning easier and more enjoyable, and allowed me to focus on marrying the love of my life (and our immigration issues… which aren’t happy, but necessary).

I know how you feel! I am a details obsessed person who may slightly be a control freak.  It is hard to relax even though you know the why you are working so hard in the first place.  Sometimes it can make you feel like going back in time.  Just take a deep breathe and give yourself a 2 or 3 day break (if you can) from the wedding planning and head out for a nice dinner with the Fiance. Don’t even bring up the wedding…sometimes they do first 🙂
