Oh I totally feel you on this. I have a sort of ebb and flow when it comes to excitement about wedding-related stuff. I went through a bit of a rough patch emotionally (see, like, any of my posts from the past few weeks) and during that time I found it hard to be excited about, well, anything really. Wedding stuff was just one aspect of it, but one that was much more noticeable given that I had been so excited and into it before that. Is there other stuff going on? Other stressors in your life may be contributing. I know what it feels like to be really excited to marry your fiance but not so enthused about the planning. It will pass. HUGS!

I was kinda like that too.  But I think part of it is I just am not a person to squeal, so when people would be like OH my gosh, and get all squeally during dress fittings I’m like I don’t even know you, I don’t know, it just seemed like fake emotions sometimes, and so then I felt like well maybe I’m not too into wedding planning.  And things were turning out differently then I had imagined for some of the plans.  But then once some decisions were made I got back into the swing of things and readjusted.

As long as you are excited about marrying your fiance, I don’t think you have to be excited about much else.  It’s just not everyone’s “thing.”  I am generally more excited about the house we bought than the wedding.  I view it as being more excited about the marriage than the wedding.  Better than the other way around!

You’re also kind of far out from your wedding like me – far out in real world time, not wedding time lol. I feel like sometimes if I’m not feeling doing something or researching something I think it may come from being months and months away from the actual wedding. In my mind I know things need to get done or at least researched really far ahead of time, but sometimes I find it hard to motivate if I’m feeling all “meh” about life. And I don’t know about still being in school and planning, but I know that many days my job mentally exhausts me and I get home and the last thing I want to do is be on the computer anymore doing wedding stuff. I just want a glass of wine and some reality TV.

Also, I don’t know if you are dealing with this but I am so I’ll throw it out there – my mom can be a real pain in the a** in terms of asking me a million rapid fire questions about things and seriously – I could be in the most high-gear wedding planning proactive mood, and when she plays 20 questions with me even if I know the answer to everything I just shut down completely.

*hugs* are you just feeling burned out on everything? Between real life and wedding planning, it can get pretty stressful (especialy real life… it has a way of kicking you when you’re down). Could you take a few days away from everything and take a mini-vacation? Maybe just to the next city over or something? Get a new perspective on things?

Eh, you’ll get past it.  I’m feeling the same way lately as well.  Just kinda “meh” about everything.  Wedding planning is kind of in a lull, school is boring, work is blah, etc.  I think I’m just kind of in a funk.  I’m trying to get excited about some upcoming things (Halloween, visiting my friend in Boston, the holidays, etc.) but it has definitely been kinda hard lately.
