Is it wrong that I would rather the whole wedding thing be over with so that my fiance and I can get on with our lives already? Dont get me wrong i want to get married and spend the rest of my life with this man. But I’m so sick of all the stress and the budgeting that we have been having to do over this wedding! I want to start our family and just be done with it. I mean i feel like we are already married we have been living together for a little over a year now. Not much is going to change. I’m just ready for us to go back to us. All this stress is getting to us and driving us insane. Our family lives 600+ miles away.
Ugh! someone please bring me back to the joys of getting married?!?!?!

I think everyone goes through periods of wedding excitement and so-over-the wedding feelings. Can you take a break from the planning and just have a few weeks where you and your Fiance don’t do anything wedding related? Go out on dates, try new foods, see new movies, go bowling, work on something around the house, take a mini-getaway, anything that’s not related to the wedding. I did that a few months ago and it was refreshing.
And if that doesn’t work, just think about how fun a party your reception’s going to be. 😉

@FutureMrsNogueras: Having a wedding is optional. You can get married in a low key way if it makes you happy.

Wedding planning is a stressful time in a couples life. There’s decisions to be made, budgets to respect and people to be made happy. Yes, it’s normal.. I went though it too with my fiance, now husband. I can tell you that it does come to an end. I would tell people “For as much as I’m looking forward to October 22nd, I’m looking more forward to October 23rd”. I didn’t feel relief until the night before the wedding, everything was done, I had nothing to do but relax and get married the next day. I gave a speech at the wedding about my husband and I thanked him for continuing to love me through this whole wedding planning process and my mini meltdowns.
I agree with BayStateBride and take a few days to do thing “non-wedding” with your fiance. Take a deeeeeep breath and try to stay calm and know one day soon it will all be done and you can enjoy married life, I have!!!!

Either you’re not wrong, or we both are! I am so more than ready for this show to get on down the road so I can go on with regular, married life. The whole thing is just a bundle of stress that I never expected! I am excited for a lot of elements of it, but it’s so stressful doing all the planning and preparing by myself!

I hope nothing is wrong with you feeling this way because I felt this one from the first day we started planning. I am not really stressing over the wedding party its the family and friends. We are having a Destination Wedding in our new city and state which is almost 1500 miles away and we gave our Out of Town guest 10 months in advance notice and people already trying to stress us out. LOL, you got to love family.
