I’m feeling the exact same way with 11 days to go–yikes! So much to do, so little time, and people calling to say they can’t make it after all.  The stress of wedding planning is finally catching up! A couple things that are helping me out: exercising daily and taking at least ten minutes out of the day to do NOTHING (well my ten minutes are used accomplishing something, laying in the tanning bed to get a little bit of a glow for the wedding–so relaxing)!

I do yoga, but if it’s not in your regular rotation already– it won’t help you relax! It’s hard to get for the first little bit…

I think its time to schedule a massage. Turn off your phone after 7pm. Take a bubble bath. Snuggle with your FH & watch a movie. Just reconnect & don’t let the wedding stress get the best of you!! It will all be over soon… enjoy the time!

I don’t know about the eye twitch but I did wake up Sat with a huge bag under my left eye – like majorly swollen.  Luckily I had some antibiotic drops and it’s gone away mostly.  But then a mole on my face that’s been there for awhile decided to fall off on sunday and it looks horrible – sorry for TMI but I don’t know what’s going on with my body.  And my lymph nodes are swollen but I don’t have a fever, they’re a bit less so today then yesterday.  I’m a bit stressed with also 11 days but didn’t realize I was becoming a mutant.  Sorry not a help, just is good to know I’m not the only one who’s body is being captured by this wedding business.

i down to 4 days and ust go the stress.  My to do list is nearly done, but now its people calling me, emailing me, texting me LITERALLY 50 times a day (no I am not exaggerating) for minute little things…Its annoying the living sh*t out of me and giving me a huge headache

Knock off the to-do list one iteam at a time, but realize things might take a lot of time.  Yesterday I started at 8am and didnt stop until 1:30am…I did my seating cards, wine bottle labels, some signs, the programs, and the moss letters for teh church doors.  Took FOR.  EVER.

Set aside a full day where you dont discuss wedding.  Have a date ngiht and cuddle with FI and unwind.  You need it

I get the eye twitch from time to time frmo stress.

Exercising definitely helps me relieve stress and releases endorphins…which make you happy!  Also, I just need time away from people, to help with the stress.

You are almost there!

Oh gosh, I can only sympathize as I’m still in the calm mode… for now.  I’d make sure to do something you enjoy as often as you can throughout the day.  Even if its just sitting down and watching a show you like, if you like yoga, relax with a tea, whatever it is.  Because you’re right, everything will work out so the stress is just messin’ with ya!  The eye twitch is something I get when I’m nervous or stressed too.  But, people say they don’t notice it, even though I feel like my eye is falling out of its place!  Lol.  Good luck and have a wonderful wedding!

Working out leading up to our wedding was really key for me being able to relax — as was enjoying a glass of wine or beer with the mister during dinner (one of the only times I felt like I was able to take a break from the craziness!).

Wroking out helped.  Sitting on our deck watching the sunset with the Mr helped.  A nice bath/long shower helped.  Good luck!  I’m sure everything will be great!
