Mostly A’s: Wedding Obsession has certainly taken over you. You are over thinking about your wedding planning which may lead to your fiancé feeling neglected, and that certainly is not a good way to begin a new relationship. You need to sit back, let go and realize that too much planning can also spoil things. Speak more to your fiancé, parents and friends about your new life and the beautiful future that you are actually getting married for.
Mostly B’s: You’re on the right track! There’s no need to worry, you’re absolutely balanced and taking your wedding planning in the right spirit.

Make yourself a spa appointment and treat yourself to a good relaxing massage. Call your friends over and arrange a sangeet ceremony, this would definitely change your mood to the more fun side of wedding.
