Is there any way you can move it to December or earlier?

I think its never a good thing when a bride is burned out or just wants to be done with things, something must have gotten out of proportion or rushed.

Just relax and don’t think about the wedding! Enjoy your job and being engaged 🙂

Im super close but have finally “Burned Out”. I spend the last 12 months Oooing and Ahhing over everything Wedding; now I find myself bribing myself. 

And to think all this time I had been waiting for “this time frame we are in now” and look at me move like a snail, second guessing ALL my decisions (Dress, Bmaid Dress, Venue, Cost, DJ, color choices!) thus far for our wedding; its driving me NUTS! 

Unfortunately I did lose a couple people I really loved/cared about (and found that the feelings weren’t reciprocated in the same heart felt/sincere way I had always thought) and that really hurt and put a mini-damper on my plans; since these couple girls I lost were a MAJOR part of those plans. But the show must go on and it doesnt change ME or the MAN I am about to marry. =)

I’m so tired of making decisions. I just want to enjoy it & be happy already. 

Try to find your joy again! If its taking a break for a couple months, ENJOY IT! xo

I am 75 days away and ready to just throw in the towel. I am burned out and I wish I would have planned the wedding for July or something. Litereally almost everything is done exept favors, and things that cant be done for a while. I just am ready to get this planning shit over with and be married already. Im sorry your feeling like this. Could you move up your wedding??

You know what’s helped me?  I’m not asking my girls (+Man of Honor) for awhile offically to be BM’s.  I told one because she lives across the country with a hubby +2 kids, so I wanted her to be really aware of what date we were planning.  But the others?  Nothing from me, not a peep.  I think they know I’m overwhelmed with everything else like finding a venue (we finally did), budget (we are paying for it ourselves) and all of that other jazz.  So it’s really helped because I can have my thoughts to myself right now, figure out styles I want and the overall vibe.  It’s been a blessing! : ) The less questions right now, the better. I’m enjoying my long calm before the storm.

But hang in there girls and have some wine : )

I avoided myself being burned out by not doing anything wedding related for awhile.  FI proposed Christmas Eve and I booked the venue in June for October 2012.  That takes care of food, cake, ceremony, reception, etc.  Now all we have left to do is book a photographer (which would’ve been done in July, but I still have yet to re-schedule).  After that?  Dress shopping, DIYS, and stuff that can be done within the year.  

I’m anxious to start planning so I can feel like I’m actually going to have a  wedding, but it was nice not to rush right into it at the same time.

I hope you feel better about the planning soon! (hugs)

I’m too busy dealing with other small crisis(es?) to deal with wedding planning right now. Eloping looks so good right now.

I panicked when we first got engaged over a year ago, and rushed to plan everything. Now with two months before the wedding I’m wondering why in the HELL we chose to have this ceremony/reception and not elope or something? 

I still have DIY, centerpieces, and invites to do. I’m stressed the fuck out.

I’m right there with you! I’m tired of hearing everyone else’s (especially FMIL’s) ideas for how I can do things. I am normally the type of person who knows exactly what I want, but when it comes to wedding things, i can’t make up my mind to save my life! And like @CupCakeMeg:, I’m second guessing every decision I’ve already made! I am so ready for the big day to be here all ready!!!!
