what is wrong with me! we just bought a house moved in last week & are getting last minute details finished before we drive to our somewhat destination wedding – where my family live 500 miles away.
ive had to be sick from work the last 2 days from stress – stomach pains & panic attacks. woke up at 4am worried & crying about the fact that although i live in my home town none of my family live here & i feel very alone as his family are not really close as mine are & i have just lost 2 best friends in the last few months and lost contact with my other friends.
also I just saw a young couple on tv get engaged & i thought she is at the beginning of her exciting planning journey into the unkown whereas i am at the end of mine. that made me cry again.
anyone else feel like this just before their big day? it feels like post wedding depression even though it hasnt happened yet! & im so scared things wont go right & we will forget to do things & u cant get that day back. also ive been trying to think of goals that i can look foward to after the wedding (besides being with my beautiful husband) so i dont fall into a slump (history of depresssion & having things to work towards certainly helps)
any advice would be much appreciated thanks girls especially some fun or relaxing goals i could focus on:) I think ive had far too many things collide all at once & it has just hit me now. im sure there’d be some people who’ve been in the same position
ps i am marrying the sweetest most considerate man ive ever met so i have no doubts about him or the marriage

@bride202: whew!! Take a breath girl! I will be married in 4mos but I’ve already started stressing about the same things:) I think it’s normal for us to be frazzled with all the changes about to take place..EVERYTHING will go fine! Don’t worry you’ve prepared and planned for your big day nothing will change the outcome of it…you’ll be married to your sweet man very soon ! How exciting!!!! Try to focus on the wedding right now and once you’ve tied the knot focus on your home, etc. you’ll be fine! big hug to you!!!

Don’t stress! I know how you feel and my wedding isn’t for another 3 months! I literally cried like a baby the other weekend because…well, no reason. LOL Life gets the best of us sometimes. I got really overwhelmed with working 50+ hour weeks, going to school full-time, and planning a wedding! I take a bubble bath EVERY NIGHT!
Relax! Everything will go great! <3

Hey! I just wanted to send you some virtual hugs and good wishes. You are going through SO many changes right now! It’s understandable that you’d be feeling stress. You are at such a weird time with planning…you’re SO excited for the big day, but you are also going to miss the planning. I would keep focused on the positives that you have coming up.
I also can understand the worrying about your wedding day. I had to actually tell myself to stop worrying or thinking about what could go wrong. Even the most well planned day will have a few snafus in it! Think about the most important things you want to happen and ask for help from people in your wedding party to make sure things happen. You can’t handle all of it, especially when the big day rolls around.
Hang in there!! It will all be okay :-). I also recommend exercise when you feel stressed…talk about a great stress reliever! Hello endorphins!

thanks girls that makes me feel so much better u guys r so nice! i love this place! we r just unpacking a bit now & im burning some incence & candles & i think i will go up to the mall for a massage & look at a few things for the house etc. i just cant think about wedding at the moment, all the little details & people having a hissy fit about this & that is all too much. great ideas about focusing on the house when we get back & about asking my bridal party to take care of certain important things on the day.
