My wedding is very soon, and I am starting to full-out panic. In the beginning, I wanted a small, simple wedding. However, I have learned that there is nothing simple about planning a wedding. Over the past few months, it got more fun to plan. My fiance is really excited about it, which helps a lot.
Unfortunately, though, I get anxious over every last decision. I find it next to impossible to make decisions. I even have a wedding planner, which has helped tremendously, but I still get sick when I have to think about all of the decisions left to make. I don’t want to plan anything more. I just want to marry the love of my life. What is wrong with me? Is it weird that I don’t know what I want? Why is this process so anxiety arousing? Does anybody else ever feel this overwhelmed?

Can you just let your wedding planner make some decisions for you? Like, “well i don’t care that much about XYZ, and they are overwhelming, pick something within budget. Whatever you think will look best”
Offloading the decision making will take a lot off your plate. But you have to be ok giving up the control.

I completely understand! I was like that about a month out, but I don’t have a wedding planner. You know what I did? Let my FI and mom make the decisions for me. They were the little details that no one would notice and I could have cared less either way.
It helps a bunch to recruit help and ask others to make decisions! It’s also helpful because it’s FI’s wedding too, so he was very happy to get a say! 🙂
I also made a list of things that I DID care about what the decision was, made the decision for that, and moved on. It made me know what’s important and what’s not really important. And it helped me to not dwell on what I decided since it was already checked off the list and I didn’t need to look at it anymore!
