I’m exactly 7 weeks away from the big day and I’m roughly on schedule with everything that needs to be done (a little behind in some areas, a little ahead in others). I’m obviously EXCITED for the big day, but I’m starting to just feel exhausted.
Every time I check something off my TO-DO list, three more things pop up that need to be dealt with. I’m starting to sleep more, having a harder time waking up in the morning, not having the energy to work out as much as I’d like, overdrinking coffee and still feeling tired, eating too much, etc. In other words, I’m starting to show the signs of stress big time.
I’m sure I’m not alone here. Anyone else go through a serious slump literally only weeks before the wedding? How did you deal?

I have just over 4 weeks to go and I know exactly how you feel. FH and I met with our planner for 2 1/2 hours last night, and while it helped with some things, it just made me realize exactly how much we have left to do. I have made a *super long* list of things left to do. Will just take them one at a time and try not to go batty. I hope someone can post some stress relievers.

@MiJuneBee: I know this could just be stress but I would check your thyroid levels…they could be creeping up.

easier said than done by try not to stress too much about it, cos that can make you break out plus you dont want to be so tired and fatigued on the day of. I would def see a doctor just in case.

Yup – we’re in the final push of things, and it’s totally normal for many people.
Just keep yourself in check with what needs to be done with lists if that works for you and break things into smaller tasks. Spend a night a week on rest – no wedding stuff – to keep your energy where it should be. Spend some time with your FI and remember why you’re doing all of this in the first place 🙂

I have less than 23 days to go and I feel exactly the same way. All I want to do is sleep, and I feel like I have so much to do but no energy or motivation! I think it’s normal when the big day is so close. Just make sure to take care of yourself. Try your best to eat healthier and you may start to feel better as a result.

Thanks so much for the support, ladies! I’m glad I’m not the only one who feels this way. I should be happy, and I am. But I’m just primarily tired…
@Dsquared: Thanks for the tip, if I don’t notice a change soon, I will make sure I get to the doctor to make sure my thyroid levels aren’t messed up.

Goodness, I’m a few months out and I’m already rundown! I admire your stamina! Water, fresh air, and some quiet time to yourself in the morning might help. At the moment I’m on a mini one-night getaway and it is already helping tremendously (though I really ought to get off the net hehe Oh, Wedding Bee, how I must check on you!) Amazing what a 24 hrs. refresher will do. Chin-up and yes, I agree with previous posters to have a quick doctor’s check just in case.

I’m in a mid-planning lull and wondering if I’ll ever get re-energized to finish this thing, LOL!
I talked with my MOH tonight and she’s keeping a running list. We delegated the stuff that I can’t motivate to do. So that’s my tip – delegate and book a massage at your favorite spa 🙂
