Just need to vent

I feel like I should be excited. I get excited sometimes—but being stuck in between my parents who are helping pay and my fiancé who is a little bit of a control freak. I just am not enjoying this at all. I lost my sister about a year ago—I’m not having bridesmaids. I actually don’t have that many friends—my best friend stopped talking to me in January. Is this process supposed to make you doubt your relationship? Maybe I’m just exhausted from getting my hopes up with venues only to find they’re still closed. Maybe I just miss my sister. Idk. Thanks just needed to vent.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your sister! It must be so hard to plan a wedding while mourning her.
    Being engaged is the time to seriously evaluate your relationship. Pay attention to any red flags that might pop up and address them. Listen to your gut. If you have any doubts or it doesn't feel right you should postpone the wedding until you figure out if this is the right relationship for you or not. Better to take the time now to figure it out and leave if that's what you decide than to go through with a wedding and then have to go through a divorce later.

    Weddings are fun and exciting but the process of planning a wedding is incredibly intricate and can be quite exhausting. As much as I’m excited for my own wedding, I’m ready for it to be over already so I can relax! It is a very taxing process.

    On top of the planning, you are mourning the loss of both your sister and best friend so I can appreciate that your heart is a little fragile at the moment and all this fluff with wedding planning isn’t helping, and I imagine that the two losses you’ve suffered are people who you would have otherwise turned to at this time to vent your frustrations and seek advice in.

    If you ever need a chat, you are most welcome to message me directly. I can’t offer much but I will be happy to hear you out if you need to let out some steam.

    I'm so sorry you're feeling this way! Getting married is incredibly exciting - but that doesn't mean that the day-in day-out grind of planning a wedding is!! It can be stressful and time-consuming and a lot to handle!

    I'd take a planning break and connect with your fiancé about how you're feeling right now, so you can both be on the same page and make sure you're prioritizing your relationship throughout planning.

    Sending you lots of virtual love!
