Ladies, I am burnt out. I am now 114 days from the big day, and I JUST DON’T CARE ABOUT ANYTHING ANYMORE! I don’t care about the flower girl dresses. I don’t care what my bridesmaids’ bouquets look like. I don’t care which of the TWO NEARLY IDENTICAL types of silver bowls my reception centerpieces go in. I don’t care what’s on the menu. I don’t care what my mom’s dress looks like. I don’t care if we all of sudden have 500 people show up with their random also-uninvited dates. I. Just. Don’t. Care.
Have any of you been going through this recently?? PLEASE share how you dealt with it, because deadlines are approaching and I really do have to get this stuff done… I just don’t WANNA!! Bleh.

Uh-oh. It sounds like you have a severe case of…….wedding burnout! When you’ve stopped giving a rat’s a$$ about whether something is “ivory” or “eggshell” or “white”. We’ve all been there!
Make a big giant horrible list of things you still need to do. Divide all the things up into the weeks you have left. Then do them. Smaller, more managable lists help me, personally.
Also, take a day off! Remember that it will all be over soon and you’ll be married. Then you can start stressing about houses and babies. 🙂

I agree with Juliepants. I’m sick of all this too, but we don’t have much longer. If you can divide up the stuff you have left and kinda do some stuff here and there, maybe it will help a little. It helps if you can leave it alone for a few days and focus on something else and then come back to it.
Even when you do all this, you may feel the same way. I do. I have lost interest in most things, I just want me and my fiance to be married, look good and have a good time. Not concerned about anything or anybody else at this point. 🙂

That happened to me. I took some time off from the whole thing. As the day got closer, I found myself caring again. Take a week or two off. You might have to do more in less time, but you’ll have more energy and excitement for it!

OMG! I am so glad other people feel this way too. I was starting to feel like an ungrateful brat!

Definitely can relate. I was all about the wedding before and now with 71 days left, I’m feeling “meh” about the details – I just want to be married to my mister!! I’m hoping taking a few days break from things will help!

I’m right there with you! I agree with other posters that you should give yourself a couple days off with no wedding distractions. I’ve tried to do this for myself, too, but it’s been tough because we’ve had a relatively short engagement. There’s definitely been times that I wanted to say “screw it, let’s just elope.” It’s amazing how overwhelming this whole process can be, and like others have said, I just don’t really care about all the little details anymore: I just want the day to be here so we can finally be married!

can relate but since i have a whole week with “nothing” really important to take care of- i am gonna do my favor boxes –have 107 to finish up. return a dress one day, do my shoes one day, have a bee day–meeting few bees in oregon. and tastings.. one wedding “chore ” a day should be just enough to make sure things are going smoothly… write down all the stuff u have left to do and if there is 114 things left u can do one a day.. just make sure u relax. if u are felling overwhelmed ask ur friends family to help. or ask for a girls day where all wedding stuff is off limits..

Yeah it’s hit me too. Hey! @HootieHoo we are city buddies! I just kind of gave up on the wedding stuff in the past week…I have too many other things going on in my life…haha and mine is a whole 28 days earlier than yours is…

Yep in January I went off the edge. I took a whole month off everything wedding. No talking, planning, looking or thinking. It was fantastic!!!!! I bounced back into the planning after my break with a whole new attitude.

Completely understand! I’ve got the ceremony nailed down and… confession… just really don’t care about the reception. At all. I’m so sick of trying to pretend I care about what sprinkles will go on the cookies, and what color of napkins we’ll have, etc. Can’t I just bring Guitar Hero and the dirt bikes? It would be infinitely better…

Can definitely relate – Mum is not well and getting worse (chronic cancer sufferer, metastatic to liver) and to a certain extent I’ve stopped stressing the small stuff. When I get worked up, I ask myself “Is it important?” and that’s cut out a lot of the stress. I’ve hired awesome vendors so I just need to be confident about the decisions I’ve made and roll with them. I guess I’ve been given that wake-up call, as long as Mum is still around and we say I do then I got the day I wanted.

i was/am burnout also!! I stopped planning and caring lol for about 2weeks but now that im under 2months left i feel like i better start caring and trying to get done my goal is to have pretty much everything don atleast 2 weeks before, because those will be stressful enough with hair makeup nails rehearsal ect…
