Anyone else have this feeling? My wedding is in August and even though most of the planning is nearly done and I'm excited, I just don't feel like a bride or that I'm really getting married in a few months. Apologies for my mini tirade. I just need to get it off my chest and it feels like a safe space here.
We are going to Utah in 2 weeks to finally meet all of our vendors and go to a wedding expo, as well as finalize some details - it'll be a fun 2nd spring break! Lol.
But my mom is still being awkward regarding all things wedding and making comments - like today, I was telling her how exciting it is to finally go dress shopping and have tastings, plus a little ballroom dance surprise for my fiance, and she rolled her eyes (we video chat) saying just remember you're doing all this work for just one day. And she dropped the bomb that instead of being there with us for the week - they live in Cali and we live in Penn so we only get to see them maybe once a year - they'll only be coming down in the middle of the week and just staying a couple of days since they decided they want to take a few weeks to vacation in Hawaii in Oct.
I also know a lot of brides or friends of brides getting married this year or next and I see all their pictures friends and family celebrating with them and having a good time. No one has said anything to me about our wedding since we got engaged, my bridesmaid and MOH are practically MIA ( I know they live in different states, but a text would be nice?) My fiance has a very negative attitude toward the wedding industry and gets annoyed when I bring it up. We won't be doing engagement photos, no pre-wedding parties (which I know aren't required) but would be nice. I just don't feel like a bride and as excited as I am to get married, I'm not excited for the wedding.
I'm trying to focus on my DIY projects to get me in better spirits and the workout routine I've been doing to get in better shape for myself with the bonus of potentially wearing a fitted dress. Plus being in a new city, new job and no friends definitely doesn't help.
