Wedding Brain Should Be A Mental Disorder....

  • May 8, 2011
  • by
With one more week to go until my May 15th nuptials, I find myself thinking that they should enter Wedding Brain into the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders). Side effects include: inability to think of anything other than your wedding, lack of sleep, stress, multi-tasking overload, lack of ability to delegate or ask for help from anyone, OCD, tendency to rage uncontrollably, increased panic attacks, and the ability to become a Bridezilla as well as numerous others.

Wedding planning is one of the most stressful time in anyone's relationship with their significant other. It's all said to be worth it in the end and I truly believe that. But, when you have a week to go it's not easy to see the forest through the trees. You usually sit there analyzing every leaf and bark of that tree instead of enjoying its beauty.

When you add you regular life on top of wedding planning, it can all be just a bit too much. It's really important to take much needed "me time" and "couple time", no wedding talk allowed. This will save your sanity, trust me! It doesn't matter if you're a mom, a student, a housefiancee, or like me- have two jobs, work 60 hours a week, are the primary caregiver for your ailing parent, and have your finals so that you can get your degree one day before you leave town- it's all stressful and you're going to constantly wonder if you've forgotten anything. Yes, wedding planning is fun and trust me, I think that wedding planners are saints (or lunatics, however you look at it) to do this for a living.

The most important thing to keep in mind, even when you want to kill him because he isn't doing anything, is that at the end of it all, you'll be marrying the love of your life surrounded by the people that love you both. Don't dwell on pre-wedding drama, which is easier said than done. Be grateful for those that are helping you- whether it's their job to do so or a loved one that has stepped up to the plate. Remember what's important- having a blast with all your loved ones as you celebrate your new life as a wife. Deep breaths, lots of wine and hot baths, and vent sessions...this is my recipe to help save sanity. Most of all, enjoy it!

I've said it before and will say it again: I love your sense of humor!! Great writeup; my first marriage (the planning) was awful to say the least, so I remember LOL Hope your wedding was a complete load of fun and full of love--congrats to you and blessings to you and your lucky hubby!!

Thanks Brenda- if we're not laughing at life, then what are we doing, right? The day ended up to be a blast. Of course, you obsess over what should've been but, I'm trying to do a special lobotomy to take the wedding portion from my brain, so hopefully that part will leave to lol....

There's always that "should have been" in the back of our minds...but we eventually get over it and I'm sure the lobotomy will be uncessary LOL - you looked stunning in your gown i saw on Facebook; the gown itself was awesome, but you made it all look even more so!! I am so glad your wedding was a blast and have a happy full life with your man!!

Fellow Luncher @djevoke has asked a question about wedding planning that I recently answered and now I'm turning it into a full review!      Our wedding day was August 12, 2006. The only thing that's changed since then, perhaps, is that even more brides are on a budget today. Honestly, if we were to do our wedding over again, I think we would have just had a fancy pic nic instead of this formal, traditional, banquet type thing. I love weddings! I wanted everything to …
