Would it help to step away from wedding planning for a few days? I know that it is coming up quick, but I know that when I am getting overwhelmed from a big life event or change or what not, I just take a few days to distance myself from it, so when I come back to it, I am excited to get going again. Sorry you are having a tough time with the wedding right now.

I totally sympathize with the way you feel.  I’ve been engaged for over a year and have ony 2 months until the wedding and now that its almost here I just don’t want to deal with everything anymore.  When I first got engaged, it was like a dream come true.  Then I began to realize that planning a wedding is just work piled upon work and stress piled upon stress.And I don’t really want to deal with anything anymore…and I also feel like nothing is going to turn out as I had hoped or that it will all fall apart.

But don’t give up! I’m sure you’ve put a lot of work, time, and creativity into your wedding and you wouldn’t want that to all go to waste.  I’m sure that everything will be worth it in the end. Or thats what I tell myself at least.

I totally understand where you’re coming from. I struggle with the same feelings at times.

I wanted a smaller wedding or to elope, but Fiance wanted a big wedding (weird, right?) and now he is definitely wishing we had chosen the smaller wedding/elopement route haha. We almost cancelled the “big wedding,” in order to elope, about three times before we decided to just stick with the bigger wedding.

I think what makes it even harder for me is that most of FI’s friends are getting married around the same time as us and their parents are all paying for the majority of their weddings, so they are having these elaborate “magazine” weddings (their parents are paying for the fundamental pieces like the venue, food/drinks, etc. and then they are paying for the decorative things themselves). I think our wedding will be a fun and meaningful day, but I definitely wish I could make it “prettier” than I think it is going to turn out. Most of my concerns are budget-related, but then we also have some family drama regarding ex-husbands and step-parents and what not…….. it definitely gets overwhelming.  

Just stick in there! Easier said than done, but try to keep reminding yourself that you are marrying the love of your life and that all this stressing will be worth it in the end because your day will be beautiful and meaningful for you no matter who goes or what it looks like ๐Ÿ™‚

I really understand how you feel cuz I have felt that way at times. I think it’s very normal to feel overwhelmed and stressed by it all cuz you’re dealing with so much at once. You got to remind yourself that every once in awhile you need a vacation from wedding planning so you can stay sane. I try to give myself that when I get too caught up in things and it certainly seems to help. There are plenty of times where I want to go to the court house and just get married, but then I tell myself that I would end up regretting that and I want a romantic special ceremony. In the end, I really do think you’ll find that all the work was worth it and you’ll be happy with your husband. Try to hang in there and take out time to relax!
