@asscherlover:  Agree! And after your day off, communicate with your Fiance and work out a timeline that both of you agree on for accomplishing the rest of the wedding tasks TOGETHER.

So go sit out in the sun and read!  

No seriously.


As someone who is 2 weeks away from getting married (and been engaged for 16 months), trust me when I say that the details really are NOT that important.  You need to take some time for yourself.  Look at it from his perspective:  he’s playing and taking time off and whatever and STILL GETTING MARRIED in the end.  You can too.  Don’t put this on yourself.

And also, listen to yourself – you seriously just said you should call off the wedding to the person you love and want to be your husband over what?  The details.  Don’t let this planning process take over and ruin what should be a happy time.

I scrap the day off and say take a week. Sometimes a good break is what you need. I learned this the hard way when I was super sick and basically incapable of doing anything. when I got back to it, I was so refreshed and had new perspective, so it was much nicer.

Good luck! And good luck to Fiance if and when he comes back 😉

Go outside and read!!! Unfortunately a lot of men just don’t care about the wedding as we do. And like Blanche said, at the end of the day the details just don’t matter. After you take the day off, have a long talk with your Fiance and rally his help & support.

Go sit in the sun. The martyr role doesn’t work for anybody. You can address envelopes this evening in front of the tv- you won’t be able to sit in the sun this evening.
