We have been together for 13.5 years (no typo there)! Finally decided to officially get married late this past fall.
Here I am at 6 weeks from tomorrow is the BIG day! We are doing it at his sister’s house outside. His family seems to be helping with getting the house ready. My sisters are far away and no help wedding planning wise.
Invited 224 people and hoping only 144 max come (out of town and likely).
Getting stuck working too much lately and feel I can’t devote time to my wedding like I wanted to. Dreamed about this for 13 years and now feeling like I am short changing myself!
Nothing seems to be working out…..My dress was big mess and cost me 150% more. My one friend was helping with food but now has some crazy and ridiculous ideas when I had hings all planned out. I am feeling like de have devoted time to getting things done and now just keep going back and having to redo or refigure things. I don’t have time for that!
So much to do and just want to forget about it.
I am work another 52 hours in the next 5 days and am then off for a week! Am planning to devote massive time then to getting wedding issues done!

I am also a tad OCD and want to prevent all possible mishaps so rethinking things over 10,000 times is natural to me.
I also seem to not want to commit to things for fear I might figure out something better later on. Trying to think if I don’t juwho make some decisions then I am not going to have it but that’s hard for me!

Breathe! You have a crazy few days ahead of you at work. Here is my advice. Take a hour now and make a list of everything that needs to be Done. Sompeople think that listing it out will stress them more, but usually the process of putting it on paper allows your brain to relax a bit because now it is somewhere else. Put the list away for a little while. Now go back and see if there is anything on the list you can delegate . Get on the phone and delegate what you can.
Then prioritize everything else and put the list away until your days off. Don’t even think about the wedding again until your days off. You will get tons done in your week off, and it really is ok if everything doesn’t fit your definition of perfect. It will be a wonderful day. Breathe!

Just take a deep breath. i suggest talking it over with your guy. Im sure he coul help you through it. thats what he’s there for right? a lot of brides get cold feet. nothing to worry about. just remember how much you love him and want to spend your life with him. and you should talk to your friend who was helping you and tell them you dont like her suggestions. its your wedding after all. theres always a lot of stress before the big day. Im sure the actual day will be wonderful. just a bunch of craziness but when its all done you’ll be together and be happy 🙂
