Congratulations on finishing your invitations! We just got ours in, and that is a project that I’m not looking forward to…addressing all those envelopes. I’m sending you a virtual hug! I’ve been feeling this same way. We’ve been going through some stressful stuff with the wedding ceremony, and all I want to do is please everybody. I’m beginning to realize this isn’t possible.

People are always going to have an opinion on things. I have had to deal with something similar. I have people at church asking me about the wedding, and it feels awkward to share details with people that aren’t invited. I also think people don’t realize the power of their words at times.

In the mean time, do what you need to do to take care of you. Remember, this is all about you and your FI! I had a mini meltdown last night, and a talk with Cousin Bridesmaid or Best Man really helped, seeing as she just went through all of this with her wedding planning. If you have someone close to you who has just been through all of this, I recommend talking to them. Even if they haven’t had the exact same experience, they’ve had something stressful happen and they can relate.

@babygirl0526:  I think you’re just tired of the wedding planning and the stress that comes along with it and you just want to be married already (Am I right?). I think very many bees have been in your shoes and just felt DONE with the whole thing and completely stressed and numbed out because of it. 

I suggest taking a week to two week break from wedding planning. Since you say the planning is done, simply relax, allow yourself to destress, daydream about your wedding and honeymoon, and allow yourself to get excited over it again because it’s happening and you’ve already planned it, so might as well enjoy yourself!

I’ve felt DONE before and I AM planning an elopement! Ha! I think it happens to all of us brides at one time or the other. 

Just put up your feet and daydream about marrying your dream man… 🙂 Good luck!

@babygirl0526:  Really?! Are you going to let those people come?

Thank you! I get easily overwhelmed so planning a destination weddingmoon has been a huge hurdle for me and I have no idea what I would have done if I had to plan a traditional wedding. So you have my respect for doing it all!

I think Destin sounds like a perfect solution to your current situation. Enjoy relaxing with your soon-to-be hubby! 🙂

@babygirl0526:  You’re welcome, anytime! Wow…I can’t believe people would have the nerve to do that! That is incredibly ballsy! I couldn’t imagine RSVPing for a wedding in which I haven’t received an invite, let alone make travel arrangements. I don’t know how those people know you, but are your parents and/or FI’s parents in a position to help you out with talking to people?
