Anyone else feel like they are on an emotional roller coaster? Though I very much looking forward to getting married…there is a lot of stress that goes with it. Not only that I am moving to a new state, leaving family behind, and looking for a job. I feel like in the same day I can be smiling from ear to ear, grumpy as all get out, and crying like a baby. Please tell me I’m not alone 🙂

You’re not alone. I’m looking forward to wedding bliss of being married because the road getting there is anything but blissful. I can’t even keep track of all the fights between FI and me stemming from wedding stress. Not only that, my entire world is consumed by this wedding. The other day I obsessed over the span of about 4 hours regrading which chair cover I wanted. There’s something about weddings that turns everyone insane. I can’t wait until it ends. 117 more days to go.

You’re in good company! Just before I got married I moved to the US from Canada, away from all my friends, family etc. Very overwhelming and emotional, but I love my new life here. I’ve been there, grinning like a chesire cat one minute and bawling the next. It happens. Things will settle down soon.

It’s strange, isn’t it? Ever since I got engaged, I’ve been a cry baby. Crying over anything and everything. I usually am not a crier, but I can say, in the last 2 months that I have been engaged, I’ve cried more than I have over the last two years!!!!
Being engaged is so emotional…. happy tears, and moreso, sad and frustrated tears.

Engagement really is a rollercoaster. I’m graduating from college this weekend and getting married in October. Two huge life changes. I’m really torn up inside about it. I’m very excited about the next phase in my life, but I think I’m just sad about a chapter ending and excited about a new one opening. Lots of emotions.

I have found this all to be VERY stressful…i’ve tried to appear ZEN on the outside but It is an up and down experience for me…with HUGE HIGHS AND LOWS.
Just the other day, (the day before my shower) I drove myself to the mall in an attempt to have some me time…but I had a full blown panic attack on the way…so I spent about an hour in the parking lot of soem hotel near the mall…and then next hour and a half after that sitting at the bar at the olive garden downing glasses of wine to try and calm my nerves, slow my breathing….
It’s alot of pressure…for me. Also, family problems, friends not being there for us like we though they would, etc. It’s all very hard!

You are not alone. Lately I’ve been wishing (I mean really wishing) that we had just eloped. As we get closer to the day I’m regretting all of the money we’ve spent, all the people we’ve involved and all of the expectations we’ve let build up. I feel like it’s no longer about me and FI but about everyone else. I honestly cannot wait for the day AFTER the wedding when it’s just me and FI trying to get back to normal.

you’re not alone. I guess we all just put so much pressure on ourselves to have tis perfect day. Try and look past the stresses and get excited about the marriage and the rest of your lives together. I know it’s tough, hang in there x

@fresitachulita: I too have been having panic attacks. It got so bad last week that my fiance pulled me out of work and we went on a staycation. I feel a lot better now…maybe you should take some time off?

Definitaly not alone girl. I’ve had serious stomach pains, anxiety, mood swings… It all seems so perfect and wonderful once that ring goes on your finger, but the reality is setting in and yes, I am very emotional right now.

I keep saying this ring has turned me bipolar. It’s wild. You are certainly not alone!

Oh yes. Experienced my first panic attack, have had 3 now. I thought I was alone! I’m nervous, I’m scared, but excited too.

I was just about to post that I love my fiance, and can’t wait to be his wife… but damn, sometimes he just makes me want to punch him in the throat.
Maybe its that I start my period today. Maybe its that the wedding is in less than 2 weeks. Maybe its that I’ve been worrying over every GD wedding detail, and he casually asks over gchat, Oh, were not doing X?I thought we were…
