So, as you can imagine, I come in contact with a lot of wedding related information during my day. I know you’re shocked but it’s true.
Between all of our suppliers and the real weddings from our brides I am surrounded by weddings all day, every day! Don’t get me wrong – I love it, there is always some thing new and different and the creativity of our brides never ceases to amaze me – we have some beautiful Real Weddings on our site make sure you have a look.
But planning my own wedding in the midst of all of this? At first it was all systems go, I knew what I wanted and where to find it. Then you decide on something else and all of a sudden my intimate little vineyard wedding is a three-ring circus. Not as much fun.
As a general rule most weddings take any where between 12-18 months to plan – although I do know of some exceptions I’ve seen weddings planned in a month! But I think I may have started a bit too early, given that we knew what we wanted and where to find it (mostly).
Plus I really want to avoid turning into a Bridezilla – so far the whole process has been stress free and fun! So I have taken a break – I’m going to leave things for a month or two – at least until we are done with the engagement party – and then slowly get back into it. I think the adrenalin of planning such a big event has run out, so every bouquet, limo and dress looks exactly the same!
Having to deal with family dramas, work and life in general has taken some of the shine from my wedding planning – although as soon as I find the perfect bridesmaids earrings i’m sure this will be a different story!
Have any of you had wedding burn out? Was it because of the stress or did you just start planning too early?
