I have 1 month left and just having that realization I’m kind of freaking out a little bit. I have a bunch of little things to do still and a few not so little things too. Luckily money isn’t going to be a big issue or I’d be pulling my hair out. (Low budget wedding, called in a bunch of favors, looked around alot before making decisions, been gifted, and got lucky- everything is under $2000)
But its the stuff like writing vows, making a day of schedule, the rehearsal dinner that are all piled up for me to do still. My fiance can’t really help a ton (he tries as best he can) bc he drives a truck all day and works long/ unusual hours. But I’m kinda freaking out about finishing everything on time or having everyone know when they need to be where. I know it’ll all come together in the end so I guess I just need to get it out of my system.
I’m also a little terrified about having to be up in front of everyone. I dont like being the center of attention and I really really hate public speaking- I get incredibly nervous and I stutter a little bit and I really dont want that to happen while I’m up there…
No cold feet about marrying my fiance, I know he’s the one without a doubt in my mind it’s just getting everything done in time that im freaking out about

Are you getting married on the 27th too? I’m right there with you, from the stress of all the final details to the anxiety about being the center of attention. Something I read elsewhere helped a lot – we will be at the center, the reason that everyone is there, but most of them will be seeing so many friends and family they haven’t talked to in ages that we will not be the center of their attention. We will simply be the happy reason for their wonderful evening. 🙂
in fact, I think it’s really useful to keep in mind that everyone who is coming is attending in order to wish you well. You have no enemies at your own wedding – nobody who is going to be looking with a critical eye (and if you do – well, their behavior reflects poorly only on them). So make a long list of everything you need to do, and cross each item off as you do it – but don’t forget, this is a happy occasion, and you are allowed to enjoy it even if it doesn’t go perfectly – certainly everyone else will!

I just got married June 21st and was super nervous for the ceremony and talking in front of everyone, just like you. I had 200 guests at my wedding, and when I was up at the alter during the 25 minute ceremony, I literally felt like there was no one behind me. It was awesome, I didn’t feel nervous at all. Trust me, you’ll be fine! 🙂
