I am currently in the final stages of writing my Master’s thesis and so have not been excited about planning the wedding at all. It is time when decisions need to be made, but I can’t get motivated because I feel like i’m drowning in school.
Everytime I get an email or a phone call about “ideas” to help with the wedding, or people needing info on details for the wedding my heart starts racing and I feel totally overwhelmed. They aren’t doing anything wrong, and I have the majority of planning done. We are now at the “setting dates for the showers and parties” phase, and I just don’t care when they are. But I feel horrible not having the info available for people right when they ask for it. I hate saying “I don’t know” and seeing the look of dissappointment on their faces.
For some reason I was so into diying eveything and being super invovled with planning, then my Master’s took a wrong turn and is taking longer to complete and is eating up my time I wanted to put towards wedding planning and being excited about it.
Ugh, I’m just feeling sorry for myself and hate dissapointing everyone.

@KingsDaughter: Thanks. I have been trying to turn over the rains to my Maid/Matron of Honor and DOC but I find it hard to give direction and loosen my grip on control. I think I will try and make a plan for them this week and hopefully I will feel better.
Anyway, I’m having the wedding at the Boulevard club. What about you?

@SillyStacey: Well I understand you wanting to have a say in all…but you don’t have to loose control. Just have them bring you ideas and you say “yay” or “nay”. Maybe they can help do the ground work (time consuming work).
I would suggest doing things that are easy (not too many fancy details that you need to do yourself) and keep it elegant and clean…
I am having my wedding in St.Catharine (www.stonemillinn.ca) since my family lives there.
May I ask what kinda datails ppl are asking you about?
Also how involed is your FI? You should talk to him that you need his support and involvemnt because you feel overwhelmed?
Any help you need I am willing to help (advice) just ask me :).
Also about the shower just hand that 100% over to your Maid/Matron of Honor she should do that
