This isn’t really “emotional” I just didn’t know where to put it!
Anyways… Fiance and I have been dating for over 5 years, and been talking about the wedding for forever. We’ve been engaged since October last year.
I am now to the phase that I’m “over it”
I’m more excited to just move in with him and be on our own than I am about the wedding in general.
I need to get back into planning mode though. I have alot of stuff that I need to catch up on!
Any suggestions to get that wedding glow back?
ETA: Nothing really happened… just lost that excitement!

I felt like this when the stress of choosing the big wedding items was looming. Picking the venue, caterer, flowers etc. made me think I just wanted the stress of it all to be behind me. But, I found that choosing and thinking about the small details really got me back into the mood of planning. Also, once invitations go out, the excitement definitely picks up! Grab some wedding magazines, look at your dress, envision walking down the aisle. As your wedding creeps closer and closer, I bet you will get more and more excited.

I’ve had a long engagment, and we’ve been together a long time, and I’ve felt some of these lulls during planning too, where I just wanted it to be over and didn’t feel excited. I’ve found that’s it’s usually during times when I’m not working on wedding-related things. When I find a project to do–whether it’s assembling invitations, designing programs, or writing our ceremony (which I’ve just started)– I get a lot more excited. So is there something that you could work on– even if it’s not something you NEED to get done early, just to give yourself something to get excited about?
Also, I guarantee you will get more excited (and also more stressed out!) the closer the wedding gets. I am SO much more excited than I was a few months ago, and I’m still four months out! But I started thinking about all the people who will be there that I haven’t seen, and the fact that they are coming just for me! And writing the ceremony got me really envisioning the day and looking forward to it.
I wouldn’t worry too much about it though, totally normally to have some low moments in planning 🙂

I’ll be watching this post – I have no motivation to do “wedding” things – what I first imagined and what I wanted “perfect wedding” is now not a big concern, I’m starting to care much less about the details and now I just want it to be over..
