To put it simply, I just want my wedding over with. I’m no longer excited about it. I do love my fiance and am looking forward to becoming husband and wife, but that’s about it. I am so stressed all the time because everyone that is not me or my fiance want to have a say, and if I speak my mind against their ideas they call me a bridezilla. I have had many thoughts of just eloping, but seeing as how close we are it just isn’t an option. Does anyone have theae bride blues and know any tactics to combat them and actually feel excited about my wedding again?

1) Take a break from the wedding planning. Talk with your fiancé about taking a week, two weeks, or more off from even talking about it.
2) when you are ready to get back to wedding planning, try a technique I call brickwalling. If someone besides your Fiance tries to give their unsolicited opinion, smile and say “Thanks. Fiance and I have things under control.” Then lather, rinse, repeat as needed.

This is happening to me. I’m a little over 2 months away from the wedding and it feels like I’m planning a party for my fiance and his parents. My parents are paying, but his parents have been so involved with the guest list I want to rip my head off. My guest list was done and complete before save the dates went out last year. His parents are STILL deciding who they want to invite. My RSVP deadline is this Saturday. I finally had my fiance tell them they can’t invite anymore people because there’s no time to wait for their responses. His parents had a year to figure this out and they aren’t even paying.
Taking a break from wedding planning is hard because there is so much to do. I’m already behind so I can’t really take a break. The only thing that is getting me through it is thinking about our honeymoon. I also imagine that the day of, all the stress will be behind me and I can actually enjoy it.
