Is anyone else feeling this way?
Our invitations went out this past weekend. At first I wanted to try to find a place to hand cancel them since we spent so much money on beautiful letterpress invitation suites, but in the end. We had them addressed by a calligrapher and my mom put all the stamps on them. I didn’t even want to bother trying to find a post office and then go hand cancel them myself.
I’m also so over wedding planning. It’s not that I don’t care, I’m just so sick of it. I’m so busy at work and we are about to leave for our first wedding of 8 this summer (all across the country, except for our own). I’ve hired all of my vendors and am now at the point where I tell our florist when she has questions, you know what I want, I trust your judgement…. because I am just so tired of planning.
Seriously, I’m over it. I will never do any sort of vow renewal that entails this amount of planning and drama. I also if (something were to happen to my FI), would never have a big wedding again. No way.
I know its going to be a beautiful wedding and it will all be worth it, but I’m just sick of it.
Does anyone else feel this way?
Oops I just noticed I posted this in Dress. I meant for it to be in the general area.

I feel the same way!!!! I’m sooo looking forward to being done with it all. This is enough to make me never want to get married again.

I feel this way and my wedding is in less than 5 weeks. I still have a bunch to do but I would rather concentrate on our relationship then the wedding details. I am over this and want to be done.

You will get your second wind in 2-3 weeks! Take a week or two and do nothing wedding. Everything will still be in place when you come back to it. And if you want to leave things in the hands of the pros, do it! I gave specific detail for my bouquet and the Mister’s bout. But sent some inspiration pics to the florist for the girls’ bouquets and the guys’ bouts and said “get close to this on my budget.”
I am over it as well but more so because we are SO CLOSE and I am just ready for it to all come together and be a Mrs. already! And to stop the family drama but that’s for another thread 😉

I agree with Champagne Wishes. Make sure you have a checklist of everything you have left to do and just take a week off from it. You still have plenty of time left and taking a break will help get you your second wind. After my invitations went out, I set my list aside and just enjoyed my free time for a week or so. When I had time, I’d do one or two things off my checklist and not worry about anything else. It helped ease the pressure and I actually got to the point of thinking that I had more to do but I had nothing left on my list so I knew I was done until the couple days before the wedding.

Completely over it! We are less than three weeks away and I CANNOT WAIT to just have the damn wedding and move on with my life 🙂
Hang in there and when it gets rough, just sit back and go to a happy wedding place – picture that moment when you are at the reception, champagne in hand, surrounded by happy smiling faces, tummy full of delicious food and your favorite dance tunes playing…and YOUR HUSBAND by your side!
When I can get my head to that place I find a little more patience and energy for everything that has to get done between here and there!

YES! Four weeks away and I’m so ready to be done. But that was mainly because my dress drama went on a lot longer than it should’ve, I mucked that up royally and I still don’t have a dress ready. If I hadn’t spent my last few weeks running around like a chicken with its head cut off between bridal salons and alterations; I would’ve had a lot more time for other things and probably enjoyed it a lot more. When this is all said and done I don’t ever want to see a wedding dress again. I don’t know if I’ll even be able to look at WB anymore, I feel so sick and defeated by the whole thing.

Ha, I still have 5 months to go and I’m sick of planning! I’m so indecisive and worry that I’ve made the wrong decisions on flowers, colors, dresses, etc. I’m sick of fretting over every little thing. And tired of fielding questions from my parents and arguing over guest lists. I just want the day to come so I can (hopefully) enjoy it! Personally I think whoever said wedding planning was fun was on crack!

Yes.Yes. Yes! Especially the mundane stuff like booking blocks of hotel rooms. I feel like I have so much to do still and I don’t want to do it, I just want it done.

I’m so glad I’m not alone! I was starting to think that maybe this is a bad sign or something.
I do love that we are starting to get gifts a few times a week, but other than that, I’m sooo over it!
Can’t this day just come already!!
I have a new respect for all brides. I had no idea what kind of work went into these weddings.

OMG I am so over all of this as well. I am happy that invites are out, vendors are booked etc. On one hand I feel like we could have the wedding tomorrow and we probably would be fine (enough stuff is completed). However, then I think about the to-do list and its ABSURD how many little things still need to be accomplished.

Date Twin!! I feel your pain! I don’t have a single free weekend until the wedding and it’s stressing me out. I’ve handled all the big things but the little details have me freaking out and I can’t wait to get this wedding over with so I can enjoy life with Fiance. I’m also moving in June so dealing with packing, cleaning, etc isn’t fun either.
