Ok, I am super stressed, tired, have 2908569486 things running through my mind. I’m crying at every sappy wedding show and breaking down at every disappointment. The FOG can’t make it to the wedding and a few other normal mishaps and annoyances are happening. I’m excited but right now I’m mostly just tired of feeling like this and want it to be over. Is it normal to feel this way a week before the wedding? Any married bees who can help me feel better? 🙁
I just wish some people, instead of putting more pressure on me, would say “how can I help you?” Or at least “how are you doing??”

I think it is normal – somehow, when you really need to, when the wedding events really start happening – things will clear and you will totally rally! I wish, too, that someone would offer to help you out and/or ask if you need anything, but I do think it is normal to feel this way, and I do think you’ll feel excited and ready when it really rolls around. Try to take one thing at a time, enjoy as much as you can, and remember that you’re marrying your love SO soon!

My wedding is 3 days away and I’m pretty much in constant tears. I feel the exact same way. I keep repeating that I will survive and get to my honeymoon somehow!

Don’t feel bad! I am two months from my wedding and feel exactly the same way! I am so tired of people bailing out on things, making us feel guilty about who we chose for the wedding party, people who can’t come etc. Just try to focus on the whole reason for the wedding- YOUR MARRIAGE! and don’t worry about everyone else, you can’t control other people’s actions, only your own! So have a great wedding day and don’t worry. But I too have been very emotional and stressed, I think it’s very normal!

I feel exactly the same – I have two weeks to go and everyone is driving me nuts, no one has offered to help me out not even my bridesmaids! Aaarrrggh.
But on the plus side people keep telling me its well worth it 😀

Hi date twin! Dont worry I think everything will be okay – you will get everything done and all the small mishaps will either work out in the end or not matter as much. Yesterday we made a list of all the things we need to get done before we drive 10 hours down to Georgia on Tuesday (where we are getting married). Then once the list was made we delegated into tasks for FI to do, tasks for me to do and tasks that both of us will need to do. I don’t have any plans this weekend except to finish up stuff that is necessary before we go. After that if it hasnt gotten done then oh well, it wasnt meant to be!!!
We are getting married SO SO SO soon and you just have to remember that! 🙂 🙂

Me too! I know just how you feel! I am two weeks away from my wedding and some of the annoying things that have happened are (1) no one wants to be an usher, (2) in-laws have sent out double invitations for the rehearsal dinner, (3) my mom just asked me to send 100 invitations out to a post-dinner Sunday brunch that she has decided to plan at the last minute, (4) my mom keeps doing things like giving me tooth whitening systems “just because I thought you might like this,” among all of the other MILLION things I have to still do!!!!! Luckily, I have two great bridesmaids and another close friend that will join me next week to help do some of the other last-minute things (seating cards, etc.).
We’ll get through it! But I SURE need a vacation/honeymoon!!!!

I just think there is so much anxiety for this day to be perfect. There are no do overs. It’s not like planning a regular party that if something goes wrong there is always another. Society puts so much pressure for our wedding to be the most magical day we will ever experience and things need to be perfect.
I was throwing up for hours last night. I think the stress has officially eaten away at my stomach. My FI has really been the one to step up to the plate and do basically everything he can to make things easier on me.
After I finished getting sick last night I made a comment to FI, could you imagine how bad I would feel if I was marrying the wrong person LOL.
But we are almost there and then we will be relaxing somewhere on our honeymoon!

@roxy821: I am so sorry you are sick 🙁 Eeat some saltines and drink some seltzer water and get some good “me time” somewhere in there. I am going for a massage the day before, you should go too if you haven’t planned one!! Or at least make your fiance give you a foot massage 🙂
