Why am I not more excited about my wedding?

I am thinking about getting married this summer. We were planning for July 5th. Everything was pretty okay until I ordered the dress of my dreams and then found out it's not available until after that date. Now I'm feeling overwhelmed and just not motivated to plan or do anything.

We thought about postponing the wedding until later in the summer or next year, but now I'm just not looking forward to it or wanting to plan for anything. I can't even make up my mind as to when to do it. Is the dress just an excuse for something else? Do I just not want to get married? You'd think I'd be excited because I've wanted to be married for years now, before I even met my guy. Also we are going on a big trip and eloping in the carribean, you'd think I'd be excited I'm just feeling numb and avoiding everything. What's wrong with me?

You may be feeling the pressure. You have to decide if you are in love with the experience of a grand wedding ceremony, with the mental image of a happily married life or if you just want to spend your life with your guy. The first two are optional but the last is mandatory. If the last is the reason, that can be done in a simple ceremony without all of the pomp and expense and those marriages last just as well without the pressure.

Rob's answer was great.

If you're the one paying for it, that also takes away some of the excitement.

Maybe it's just not your thing. My husband and I got married December 2011 after being together for several years. We just went to the Justice of the Peace and had lunch afterwards. Our families wanted something grand, but the timing was bad. We conceded to an anniversary reception, but we didn't do that either. Our marriage is fine... I'm just not into the planning, stress, expense, expectations, etc.

Preparing for a marriage and preparing for a wedding are NOT the same thing. Just give yourself a little space to figure out which one you don't want.
