I feel so over wedding planning. I wish I was more excited about it but 7 weeks out and I wish the event would just happen without anymore planning done by me.
I feel stressed every time a new bill is paid and every time we go over the planned budget for something. And I wish I had made better wedding planning decisions – maybe a cheaper venue that held more ppl or just had been really firm about who was or was not invited so I was not in my current situation of having to figure out contingent accommodations and increasing the catering budget.
Also, my dad is sick (had a minor stroke a few months ago) and he won’t be able to attend my wedding as it is on the other side of the country. So we are planning a “small” celebration in my hometown but small to me is 15 ppl and small to my parents is 50. And that is just an additional cost and more planning (my FH and I are paying for the wedding(s) ourselves).
I have a lot of regrets about how I planned everything. And now I feel like I should have spent less money, had less people…even though I would have offended ppl and that is what I did not want. I feel like we are paying money to not offend ppl instead of paying money to have the really important ppl in our lives witness us getting married.
For the first time in my life, I actually feel stressed and anxious nearly every day. I can’t wait until the wedding. Because I can’t wait to be married but also because wedding planning is no longer fun and interesting to me. I guess this is just a vent and maybe other engaged bees are tired or anxious too. 😢
