    It's now under a year to go so really want to get everything sorted but just feel I have no inspiration and don't really have anyone to help pump me up to get into the mood as my friend who is already married did it on the cheap so just had basics so when I mention about the extras it doesn't really spark a conversation and my moh who isn't married and lives 2 hrs away is really busy at work and that so I feel bad messaging her wedding stuff as feel I'm driving her mad and oh is great most of the time but usually says don't no what your picturing or I don't no how you want it or yer that's great haha. I'm doing a lot myself and feel I don't really have anyone to chat about and get exciting about because it's not their wedding people aren't overly interested x

    You have us to bounce your ideas off and look for inspiration!

    Is your OH not very involved in the planning process? Can you not bounce ideas off him? xx

    I feel like that too. Every time I mention it to anyone it's like they're rolling their eyes at me as they're not interested. Very disheartening. At least you've got us to talk to on here whenever you need us x

    Talk to us about it :)

    I understand how frustrating it is though :( I would get your OH involved and say that you need his help to do it.

    Thanks ladies, sometimes I go to write on here but can't find a subject to put it under or think no one will comment on a random post so decide it's not that important haha, oh has been amazing to give him his due it's just when I say what do you think of this and he doesn't know what i'm aiming for so just says I dunno! But when I say this or this or get in a fluff he always steps in to help out. Nd has great ideas. But when I talk about the dresses I'm making I think he's said that's good so many times he's stopped haha but I like to be reassured what I'm doing is good enough. And feel I have a huge list of things to do and only so many times I can moan to him about it or say what I'm doing next lol. But other ppl seem to be interested a little and when they ask how we r getting on I can see them getting bored when I talk about u what's left to organise x

    The best advice I could give you on this is actually take a break from any major wedding planning. By now all your big things should be booked I'm sure as you always seem so organized so step back and take a few weeks to de-wedding as it were. Then, when you come back to it all in a few weeks, your (and other peoples) motivation and excitement will return hopefully... It did for us as I know we hit a sticking point at about the 9-10 month point because you are at the point where it's getting close but there's nothing major to do until time whittles down a bit more! Try it if you can and in the mean time, there's always us :) xx

    There is always the 2016 thread to put things on too if you're not sure what else to put it under. We're all on there to help x

    If it was anything like us, we started to go stir crazy at your point so we took steps back from it for a while, didn't do too much planning (except the essentials/big things), went on a few date nights to just remember why we were doing this and also to just enjoy each others company then when we got a bit closer, we got really excited and motivated again! Get your hair and transport sorted then try it, you'll feel completely different when you come back :) We are all guilty of getting too 'wedding-y' at times and sometimes it's good to remember there's other things other than weddings happening! x

    I'm feeling like that too. I feel like I've hit a brick wall. I try to talk to my BM's about the planning but they don't seem interested. I also don't feel like I've got any motivation at the moment. It doesn't help that one of my BM has now said that she and her oh are trying for a baby so the BM dresses are on hold until next year and I really wanted to get them in the next couple of months. xx
