    Hi! i'm on my third engagement and Ive noticed that alot of my ideas that i have with my partner are pretty much the same which is great but since we got engaged (8th July 2020) I have not stoppped obsessing over our wedding and i keep talking about it and I dont want to become a bridezilla. Im so anxious because im at uni while we are planning our wedding that the spare time me and my H2B have together after I go back wedding planning will take a back burner and we dont have enough time. with this worry im finding its all i think and talk about.. HELP!

    Woah! I think you need to take a step back and calm down!
    Obsessing isn't healthy for you or the people around you. No-one wants to sound like a broken record or have to listen to said broken record.
    I think you need to make some checklists and allocate yourself a limited amount of time each day/week (depending upon your schedule and how long until your wedding date) to research options etc and only try to discuss the things that make it on to the shortlists and finalising details with your fiance and mates. Or set aside a specific wedding chat time each week for help, advice, opinions and make if fun - eats, drinks etc.

    I am/was in a similar boat. My job was on pause during lockdown whilst my H2B is a keyworker so carried on as normal while I found my new free time filled with planning - it gave me purpose.

    As his job is very full on he came home to me being very full on and we had to find a middle ground. We picked a thing to book/organise each month and have weekly wedding meetings to get things in place. Its provided structure for us both.

    And give yourself a break, you've only been engaged a little while so the excitement is new and fresh, enjoy it and take you time.
