Vegas Anyone?

April 18th, 2011 by     

Elope.  The wonderfully simple and delightfully complex word. How I love thee.

The Cymbies are under the 75 day mark. One would think that I would be super excited. Sadly, I’m simply tired. I’m sick and tired of weddings and all things associated! Is that wrong? For this very reason is why I have been taking an extended siesta from the Garden. I’m sick of making decisions about things that never interested me and tired of writing checks and swiping my credit card.

According to my married friends, every bride to be hits this point at some time during her engagement. Mine hit and while I am still trucking along with wedding plans, I have been avoiding wedding things, such as wedding blogs, tv shows, and magazines. I simply want June 26th to get here. Yes I meant to put one day after my wedding day. I just want to be married already.

Now for the encouraging part of this message. According to my married friends, once your wedding day arrives, its all worth it. Or so I’m assured. I keep thinking that the glitter and lights of Vegas are calling my name.

Any suggestions for overcoming the wedding planning blues (besides hang in there)?

    I think that taking a break is the best start. The other thing that put a bit of joy back in to wedding planning was going on a date with my fiance where we didn’t talk about the wedding at all, we just went out. I also think giving your self a task that’s unrelated to the wedding helps. being in school has helped me because I haven’t’ been able to fully focus on the wedding (two weeks from now this story will change). Maybe reading a book by a certain goal. Going to a class or an event that’s completely unrelated to the wedding. I’ve definitely thought of eloping or going down to the courthouse and being done with it. For me somehow getting one decision out of the way and moving on seems to help, because it’s one less thing i have to worry about.

    I couldn’t agree with Daisy more… I think that getting away from it all is exactly what you need. Avoid the blogs, avoid the vendors, don’t make any decisions or payments until you absolutely have to (or ask someone to take care of all of that needs to be taken care of). Get away with your sweetie, maybe go for a spa weekend or something that you’d both enjoy .

    You’ll see, the wedding will be here before you know it and it will have all been worth it. Just need to get through the “lull”. *hugs*

    Oh gosh, every bride planning for a wedding reaches to that point, it’s completely natural. :) Have a break, and surely you’ll miss all of the plannings 😀

    I can’t tell you how many times through my wedding planning that I came >this< close to running off to Vegas to elope. Hubby and I even won an overnight trip to Tahoe while we were engaged and seriously considered just getting married while we were there and then telling the family to plan a big backyard BBQ to celebrate. But we resisted the temptation to elope and our wedding turned out wonderful and full of fun. Everyone kept telling me for years afterwards that it was the most fun wedding they've ever been to. It was definitely worth it, even though hubby and I had to make some concessions to the family during our planning and didn't get to do everything we wanted for the wedding.

    Take a break, definitely. And while you are taking your break, try to remind yourself why you are doing all this. Try to remember all the good parts of the wedding planning and visualize how much fun the wedding will be. And of course, just hang in there! :-)
