Sooo… My wedding is just under 4 weeks away and about 2 weeks ago I started in on what I dub DIY madness! This was shortly after I lost my job (a story for another day). My living room is currently absolutely filled with wedding stuff and I am absolutely sick of looking at it! My Maid/Matron of Honor and another bridesmaid came over today and I think they were in a bit of shock when they bore witness to the multitudes of projects I had in the works. They were good sports about it although my Maid/Matron of Honor did look at me like I had lost my mind. And I can say that at this point thanks to their help the projects are about 80% done.
But I am just done! It makes me sick to think of how much money was spent, of all the hours spent on the computer formatting programs, menus, signs, activity books ect(my eye actually developed a twitch for a few days), and all the hours spent obsessing over all these details. I have reached a place where I don’t even want to think about the wedding! I want to give myself time to recharge, so I can be excited again. So I think tomorrow I am going to finnish off the last of the projects and pack it all up and store it in the spare room until the wedding.

I’m sorry to hear you’re going through a rough time now! Take time for yourself and relax. Everything will be okay. Wuuuuu saaaaaaaa. Lol. But seriously, take a breather and return to it when you can get excited about your big day again! 🙂

I know how you feel! I am a huge DIY bride and also unemployed at the moment (which is continuously eating away at me) and I feel like I’ve spent SO much money!! AND I always get my projects about 80% done when I get bored and switch to a new one, so they are all almost done but just eating away at me and taking up the whole apartment. grrrrr.
