I’ve been doing so much planning lately that I am just sick of it. I just want to get it all over over with and be married. Honestly, being engaged has sucked so much, its just been constant stress and pressure. Am I the only one who wants to just drop it all and go to the courthouse?

Sorry your having such a rough time. Maybe you should just take a break for like a week. If you still want to elope than maybe you and your fiance should talk about it.

@Tigerlilybride: Work out which bits are causing you the worry and stress, and ask for help with them. Speak to your fiancé, close friends, family — anyone you trust to help without taking over! Allow them to advise you and to help you.
Make a list of everything still outstanding and when you need to get it sorted by. Hopefully this way you will feel more in control of everything.

@Tigerlilybride: I am stressed and overwhelmed! But my family and friends have been my saving grace. Talk it out, it really helps.
I found planning by myself was too much to handle. I needed to share ideas, pictures, figures, dates, vendors, ect. and it has helped so much getting opinions that matter.

@Tigerlilybride: my husband and i got engaged christmas of 2010 and didnt get married till feb of this year. i remember we changed the date of our wedding 4 times and then after the last date for our wedding went past with no wedding happening because of financial issues and other stuff just kept on happening and we couldnt; things were crazy. A couple of times we decided not to even get married. 2 months after that arguement we got married at our courthouse. My husbands parents got married in the courthouse in sc too and they’ve been married 42 years! were like okay they are our prime example so here we are 6months and happy:) NO WORRIES. its your day you go with what makes you happy not what everybody else wants. put your foot down, if your tired of planning and your bubble of excitement over planning your day has left the building tell your husband like i did “i want you and only you im not marrying my wedding day im marrying you and everything else doesnt matter”. GOOD LUCK:)

I think that’s a very typical reaction! Wedding planning is what you make it. Take a deep breath. Gather some family and friends to help you. Remember to take time for yourself, too. Take care of yourself first. Chin up!
