It’s okay to be sick of wedding planning.
With a little more than two months to go, I am officially DONE with planning. Don’t read that the way your brain is telling you to, I’m really not done with my planning. I’ve just reached the point where I’ve stopped caring about it all.
I see other brides who are in this stage of their planning worrying about their hairstyles, accessories and time lines among other things. I care about none of this. I have a lot of expensive dental work to pay for in the coming months. So if I find some jewelry or shoes, they will be cheap. I may even :gasp!: wear something I already own to the rehearsal dinner and my upcoming bridal shower.
Part of me feels like a bad bride for NOT caring about this. Last night I had another wedding nightmare where among other things another girl was getting married where I was and she had her proverbial shit together far more than I. I know the wedding will happen if I’m wearing shoes I already own or if the only jewelry I’m wearing is my engagement ring.
But I see how other brides are freaking out and I guess I feel I should be too. I’ve always loved weddings and now that my own wedding is approaching, that inner voice that loves weddings is left sputtering, “But…but…it’s your WEDDING! YOUR SPECIAL DAY! You should care about this stuff!” Unfortunately her voice is pretty far in the distance now. I no longer watch any wedding shows and my stack of bridal porn has not been looked at in months. I’m over it. I am excited for my wedding day, I’m just sick of planning for it.
I’ve had a lot of crap to deal with in the last month in my personal life. My job situation has gone from bad to God bloody awful. So perhaps that’s why I really can’t be bothered to care about all these details I should be dealing with right now. Even setting up appointments to meet with my vendors before the wedding is giving me a headache. I will be SO GLAD when the only thing I have to plan is dinner for that night. I am so, so, SO glad we moved up our date from November 14th or I think I’d be going totally cuckoo bananas by now!
Anyone else feeling this way?
