- Wedding: October 2012
So, have any other brides considered just calling it quits with wedding planning? The closer I get to the wedding (Oct 6), the more it just seems like we’re wasting money and time on a day that will be beautiful, but easily forgotten. While I’m a crafty person and love all the DIY projects and being the center of attention, this nagging part of me just wants to get married now and get on with life.
I’m forging through because I know that I’ll see my friends get married in the future and will probably be jealous of their “big day” and regret not having one of my own. I just can’t get rid of this feeling that I would be happier just jumping a plane and having a quick ceremony/honeymoon with just my fiance and me.
Has anyone else felt this way? I just feel so conflicted. I think part of it is that I grew up very poor, so this all seems like a waste of money. But it’s also that I just don’t really care about all the wedding details. I just want it to work itself out and get over with it.
TLDNR; I just want to be married without all the hoopla.
