I’m not sure if this is a good spot to post this, if not sorry!
I’m bummed. There are 260 days left until our wedding. I should be excited, right? Nope- I’m not excited today. I want to get married tomorrow. I’ve never been the most patient person, and I don’t want to have a whiney post, but I just reallllllly want to be married already! My Fiance booked our honeymoon last night, and that just made me so excited, and I just don’t want to wait another 260 days!! Most days I’m all super pumped & thinking that it’s really soon (only 8 months!)…Just having an off day I guess?
I know that this post is pretty pointless, and I’m sorry. There’s just no one else who gets it really. I also don’t want to annoy my friends & family, haha…So…how do yall deal with the long wait until your wedding? Some days does it seem like it’s coming up super fast, but then the next day it feels like it’s a bazillion years away?

I just kept planning!! I worked on things and thought of things to add to the wedding.. looked up a bunch of ideas. Basically distracted myself! There is plenty to keep you busy if you focus your energy in a positive way! We had a year and a half engagement and it really did go by quick. Plus it made it nice to not have anything rushed or on a deadline!
Check out this thread.. i listed a lot of details and thoughtful things that i came up with during all that time 😉
share your *special touches* for wedding receptions

You are in the wedding planning lull and OF COURSE come to WB to release – – we have all been through it as well. I am 64 days away from my wedding day – let me tell you I feel as though this day has been taking forever – I kept feeling like, “there has got to be something for me to do, there is no way its normal to have this lull period…” I learned it is normal! Once you hit T-100 time is gonna fly, fly right by.
During the lull I worked on things that would take me a long time = music. I listened to all sorts of songs I wanted for while the guests arrived, while the wedding party walk down the aisle, while FH walks with his parents, while I walk with mine, when its done, cocktail hours, – – I listen to hours and hours of music and right now I am still listening to music, HAHAHAHAH – – Find something that you think will take a ton of time…
Chin up though because let me tell you – I despised the lull but now that I am passed it, I am so thankful it was there, HAHAHAHHAHAHAH

Trust me, it will go by SO FAST, and your wedding will be there before you know it. I’m 44 days away from my wedding, and FREAKING OUT, because it’s right around the corner and I have so much to do. Back in March or so, I was lamenting about having to wait until October, and a couple of times FH and I strongly thought about going off to Vegas because we didn’t want to wait, and didn’t want to deal with the headache that is wedding planning (and it still crosses my mind sometimes). Keep busy. Find some DIY projects to work on. Planning on making your own invitations? Start them now. Decorations? Even though I’m really excited, I kinda wish I had a couple more months so I could get everything done without being stressed out, but then I’m the type of person who works best with a deadline breathing down my neck.
However, the best advice I can give you is to take time to enjoy your engagement and try to take your mind off the wedding every once and awhile. The happiest I’ve been the past couple of months is spending time with my FH just laying around on a lazy Saturday afternoon enjoying each other’s company when I’ve completly ignored anything wedding-related. Since I’ve been doing ALL the wedding planning (I’ve had no help from any family members and very little help from FH and only when I’ve twisted his arm and nagged him) it’s made me bit of a bitch sometimes since I’ve been super stressed out. It’s been nice to have moments where I forget we’re even having a wedding, and I can enjoy spending time with him, and remember why I fell in love with him in the first place and why I’m marrying him.
