- Wedding: March 2017 - The Tall Ship Elissa, Galveston, TX
Maybe I’m just a weirdo, but I will be super-sad when all the wedding stuff is over! We still have 7 months to go, but it has already been 11 months since we got engaged, and that has absolutely FLOWN by. It’s crazy how fast it has gone by, and once we hit the holiday season soon, it’s just going to be a toboggan ride straight into our wedding in early March.
I love the planning, all the little details, the anticipation, the fun the two of us are having with all of it. I think our situation is a little different in that we’re probably older than the main demographic here and give way less of a shit now than we might have when we were 20-something, we’re paying for all of it ourselves so we are no one’s puppets on a string, and we decided to have no wedding party at all. All of those things have added up to waaaayyyy less stress, and I highly recommend adopting any of those factors that you’re able to. 🙂
I am SO looking forward to our wedding day and finally being able to call him my husband… but at the same time, I kinda don’t want it to get here too soon! Anyone else?

My wedding is in March too! And I’m ready for all the planning to be over. It’s really getting on my nerves and I am so over wedding stuff. I’m just ready to be married!
Edit: Just noticed you said you are dreading it being over. Lol. Some things about wedding planning are fun, but I’ve been engaged for 2 years so that’s why I’m kind of over it lol

I am so ready to be married as well! Have been engaged since Dec 24, 2015, wedding is Sept 2017. At first everyone was like oh my goodness so far away but now i’m like oh my goodness it will be here soon! I’ve been loving the planning and surprised at how organized everything is! but i’m sad for it to be over in a way and it’s not here yet. I told my Fiance all this planning and time for that special day to be over so fast is sad lol

I’m sad mine is done. I feel like I have so much spare time now, since I planned our wedding all on my own. I need to find a hobby now lol!

I excited to finally call my fiance’ my husband but yes I get what you are saying. I was telling my sister that basically it’s all so exciting for you and all your friends/family when you get engaged and then on the day you get married. Then after that…back to real world. No one really cares anymore LOL.
But in all seriousness, I’m anxious for the day to be here but I’m not go to be so sad when it’s time to take off that super beautiful dress and all the guests are gone.

All of this! We’re at the 4 month countdown, and I had shower 1 of 2 this weekend and I am DEVISTATED that it’s already over. I love love love love wedding stuff and wedding planning, and I would love to marry my Fiance and then plan a wedding every year 😉
My shower Saturday was over in a blink and I know my wedding day is going to be the same and that makes me so sad 🙁

My dad actually gave me the advice to make sure that we made plans for things after the wedding so it doesn’t feel like the wedding is the only thing we have to look forward to.
SIDE NOTE: This website is really wearing on me with the ads slowing everything down! As I type this, each letter shows up in slow motion! Argh.

We were engaged for a while, and I was so ready to be married and get my normal life back. I have a pretty busy job, and super type A so the last few months I felt like the wedding controlled my life. On top of that, I don’t love to be the center of attention. But, it was all worth it, the day was amazing and I have never been happier. Being a newlywed is way better than being engaged. Like PP said, plan things for after the wedding and enjoy being newlyweds! We are viewing this summer as our extended honeymoon, ha. Anyway, once you’re 2 weeks until the wedding you’ll just be ready for it to get here!

I’m 17months into a 25month long engagement and I honestly haven’t felt like wedding planning has dominated my spare time so I won’t miss it when it’s over. We only ever do small bits here and there when we feel like it. Besides buying my dress last week, the last time I did anything wedding related was back in November! I will be excited for it to be over so I can put my paycheque towards a mortgage and not ridiculously overpriced wedding stuff.
I do agree that time has flown by even for me so if you have a short engagement, this lovely time in life is over too quickly!

I’m not in my 20s either, and I can’t wait to be married–and to be done with wedding planning! Not sure what age would have to do with it, though.
We are planning a wedding across the country from where we live now, so all of our travel for the most part has been wedding-related. It seems to be all our families want to talk about. I’m excited to be married to my guy, and start living life when we don’t have to make plans around a wedding.
We have some great stuff planned after the wedding, so maybe that’s why I just want to get it over with!

Post-wedding depression is not entirely unheard of. You’ve spent a long time focused on this and it elicits a lot of joy. Not to be flippant, but I would honestly suggest finding some hobbies — something to stay busy that makes you happy.

Love all the varied responses!
It’s not that we have nothing to look forward to… I hope it didn’t sound like I was going to sob in a corner once the wedding is over. 🙂
Us even ending up together is a miracle in itself, and we’re old enough and wise enough and have been through enough to really be able to appreciate and cherish every day we have. We have hobbies we enjoy and plans to try a couple new ones after the wedding, so we’re definitely looking forward to that! And we can’t wait to be married… At the same time, we know this is the only time we’ll be engaged and have this special time, and it’s bittersweet, you know? I just love planning the wedding and talking about the wedding and all of that. Like chigirl217bride
said — I wish we could do this every year. 😀

That makes sense. As an engaged couple, you get a lot of attention–from family members, vendors, and just random people–than you will most other times of your life, other than perhaps pregnancy. That attention and excitement is addictive to many people!
