I haven’t been getting ANY sleep b/c all I do is worry about things that I need to do. Little things, but they’re all adding up! Are any of you going through this if your big day is close? All I do is worry worry worry! I still have to buy candles, buy votives & holders, finalize our programs, PRINT the programs, get a small hammer for our wine box, wrap gifts for those who are getting them, order our parents’ gifts… the list goes on and on.

Aw…I know that stressed feeling well. I’m definitely a worrier and a list maker. I would say delegate some of your to do list to others so you aren’t feeling quite as pressured. If you’re like me, that might be hard to do, but you need to lighten your load so you can enjoy your big day!

Start writing everything down in a list before you go to bed – it will get thing off your mind momentarily so you can sleep!

I’m going through the same thing–I just feel wound up all the time and am having a lot of trouble sleeping and concentrating. For me, it’s not so much about what I feel needs to be done (even though there is still a lot to be done), but the pressure I’m feeling to fulfill others’ expectations of what “the bride” should be (i.e. beautiful with a capital “B”!). Normally I am a very laid-back, low-stress gal, but I’ve found that the pressure of trying to please my family, my Fiance, and his family, all while taking care of my friends’ various needs, is a lot!
At this point I’m trying to just chill out as much as possible… but I realize that this may not happen till after the wedding, realistically.

I went through that too! It’s totally normal. It will all get done. What I did was write a list of all the things that needed to be done and I mapped it all out on the calendar. And as tired as I was, I made sure it all got done. I also relied on my Mom and Fiance for help. The entire engagement I had done everything on my own but when it came down to crunch time I realized I was gonna actually need the help that was being offered. Thank goodness for that! I was gonna go looney. You’re almost done, I swear all the important things will get done!

Make a list and order it by priority. If things dont get done – thats OK! Choose things that are most important to you and try to get them done, but dont overdo yourself. STill take some time in the next 10 days to just remind yourself of what is going on and do something for yourself.

I feel the same exact and I have more time than you! I have just been focusing on one project a day and then getting as much of it done as I can, and then working on something else the next, so I don’t make myself start hating the things I have to finish! I’m sure i’m going to be in the same boat as you though when the big day gets even closer! Hang in there and just take it one step at a time!

Thanks guys. I am just nauseated. I feel like sitting here at work is the biggest waste of time (wouldn’t my boss be thrilled?) b/c I can’t get anything wedding-related done here – it all involves errands and payments and phone calls. Ugh.
