I find that when I am in a lull to do like you said, focus on something else.

It is good to come back to wedding planning with a rested brain.  Sometimes this works to my advantage because I have a fresh outlook and might be able to come up with new ideas or modify one I have been struggling with.

@Houseplant: I’m feeling that way too.

 

We’re in the process of finalizing a bunch of stuff with vendors, and I know I have  TON of e-mailing to do this weekend (as well as starting to fill out the worksheet my florist gave me). I really don’t want to do it. I just want to have a relaxing weekend and not do all this “work”.

Planning a destination wedding is HARD. I had Monday off from work, but spent the whole day doing wedding stuff, and now I have another full weekend of wedding stuff ahead of me.

Right now it feels like 2 full time jobs, even though everything is starting to come together nicely.

There are totally ups and downs in terms of wedding excitement. I’m glad that we’ve had well over a year to plan because even if wedding planning is totally possible in 6 – 8 months… I enjoy taking a week off every now and again.

That said – I’m in major wedding excitement mode as there is a wedding show at the convention centre this weekend!

@KatNYC2011: Is is just you doing all the planning and paperworK? I know that my Fiance is very little help when it comes to actually getting stuff done for the wedding.

The excitement for me has dropped a bit, but I think that’s because it’s still awhile away and I have other things stressing me out right now.

I was enjoying the excitement because it kept me occupied.  I want it back! 😛

@CantWaittillMAY: I’m writing the e-mails but Fiance is helping me and reading over my shoulder as I write  them to help out.

He was reviewing the photographer’s contract last night and gave me his list of questions.

He’s on all the e-mails with the graphic designer and gives me his feedback so I can synthesize it into the communication.

He’s actually VERY helpful and has done all the communication with the DJ and hotel himself.

I’m just not an organized/proactive person by nature, so getting all this stuff finalized 8 months out is just hard to wrap my head around, even though I know it has to be done!

I have moments like that as well. For me the issue is that my wedding is so far away and I have basically done so much. My wedding dress doesnt come in until june, everything else is sorted so now what? Thats when my excitement fades when I cant do much. I have ups and downs today might be one of those days for me as well.

@KatNYC2011: Well that is awesome that you have all that help!  It is hard, there is so much to be done, and you – you can’t even see the fruit of your labor since it is destination!

@Houseplant: You know, since there is a lull in wedding excitement, I would take some time this weekend to do whatever you want. I know a lot of my spare time is dedicated to wedding related activities.  Is there anything that you have been wanting to do lately but couldn’t because you were too busy with “wedding”?  Paint your toes, clean that closet, go for a walk, go see a movie…
