- Wedding: July 2012 - Baltimore Museum of Industry
Last week, we went to New Orleans for my birthday-4 nights. And I made a “rule”- NO wedding talk! We slipped a couple of times, but overall did really good-talked about “Wednesday” (the code name, since we weren’t going to talk about the “W” word) for less than 1/2 hour. (Like- “This drink would be really good for one of the Wednesday specialty drinks”)
And it was FANTASTIC. We were relaxed, had a lot of fun with each other, and a lot of the stupid stress we’d been dealing with was gone.
We’re doing at least one W-free day on the weekends, and it’s also really helped keep it under control. So if you’re not doing mini-breaks already, I highly recommend it!

@rebwana: Good to know your break from wedding mania was good for your mental health. Since January 1st, I’ve logged three panic attacks (not solely related to the wedding, related to the lwedding and EVERYTHING else I have going on in the next six months), somewhere around five mornings waking up with my eyes swollen shut from crying so hard the night before, and two migraines. I need to take your advice and shut it down for a day or two!!

Yes! I totally agree. It’s always so refreshing when I take a weekend off from you-know-what and just hang out with my Fiance. It reminds us why we are doing all this.

I just wrote a post about this today! (Still waiting for it to go up) I am LOVING my mini wedding break. They really should put that on the checklists you find everywhere!

@aardvark: You just made me feel so much better. You’re taking a pre-wedding break and your wedding is approaching sooner than mine. I think thinking I don’t have enough time to turn my brain off from wedding things.

I agree! what we ended up doing is making lists of points or things we wanted to talk about and we woudl spend a few hours on Sunday doing it. If something had to be discussed during the week we would, but in general we would keep it minimal so it wasnt ALL about the wedding. we still had our lives.
