I kinda do. Not sure if it’s the hormones, or the fact that I stop having wine with dinner to help with my “must loose 10Lbs’s”
I feel like the walls are closing in. Only 4.5 months left and so much to do and all i want to do is lay down in bed and not come out.
It mey have something to do with the stress of planning….. too much on my head… or just getting sick… I have no cluse.
Do any of you go through this ?

No, not yet anyway. We’re having a small wedding so I don’t feel quite as overwhelmed as some brides, but I do still have a ton to do. We’ve had a long engagement so I always said, “oh I’ll do that later, plenty of time.” But now there is not plenty of time anymore and I am feeling the pressure! Not to the point of feeling sick to my stomach though. I do tend to feel queasy when I’m really nervous so that kind of worries me a little bit for the wedding day, lol. I still remember my 4th grade violin recital – I was so nervous I puked before leaving for school. Honestly I wouldn’t be surprised if I get sick the morning of the wedding, hah.

@Lulume: I wouldn’t say I feel like hiding, but sometimes ill be sitting at work and ill think about the wedding and my heart will jump into my throat like aaahhhh I’m running out of time!
also whenever I try to do projects that I find overwhelming/daunting (like the day-of assignment list) I definitely get nauseous. But that’s mostly bc I’m like…I’m totally going forget something. Ugh

Thinking about finishing paying for everything makes me a little nauseous, but I’m sure that will pass once everyone’s paid.
Otherwise, I’m not too concerned. I’m excited about having all of my friends and family together in one place!!

Oh god, I get nauseous regularly over this wedding planning stuff! I feel like I’m running out of time, even though I’m certainly not down to the wire yet.

I too used to think, I have plenty of time! However.. We are about to be four months out and it’s “go time” in wedding planning. I still need to smooth over flowers, centerpieces, uplightiBG, tastings, fittings, invites, and paying everyone. Shoot

as long as the big bits are paid for (venue, food ect), you have something to wear and somewhere to say ‘i do’ everything else is a bonus 🙂
i get jittery thinking about it – we have been together sooooo long and planning for what will be 2 years by the time the wedding comes round. its all going to be over in a flash! but hopefully we will be left with the most amazing memories and most beautiful pictures that will make all the stress and panic of planning completely worth it.x

I get a wave of nausea ever so often thinking about it. I know 4 months are going to fly by and i’m starting to get really nervous.

The only thing I get a sick feeling over is having all of my guests stare at me. The rest I can handle.

I’m sick. But I think it is because I ate something bad last night.

Auugggghhh, not sick to my stomach most of the time, but I’m definitely feeling the stress and pressure gradually tighten like a vise. We had a spontaneous expense last month that put our savings off by about $1,000 so I’m having to be super, super diligent about everything we spend for the next 4 months.
All the big things are booked, but I feel like it’s all the nickle and diming that’s really getting to me! Little changes like making name/place cards, finishing the favors within the next 2 months, getting the flowers in order, making sure there is enough of everything…
I have wedding nightmares almost every week. The most recent one was yesterday – I dreamt that it was the day of the wedding but neither of us had written our vows and we didn’t have a box to put the wine in for our wine ceremony. I was trying to write some non-lame vows down on paper and wondering why our officiant hadn’t mentioned to us that we needed to get that done!!!

Yesterday I cried in the bathroom at Chipotle over wedding crap, if that helps.

My FI is uncomfortable with my dad paying, even though my dad is happy to do it. Yesterday we met with a caterer and, after getting a quote, my FI was super guilt-tripping me with “this wedding could pay for someone’s college education” (not true), “we’re going to end up double our original budget” (probably true, but our original budget was a modest $5000).
Anyway, I was giving lots of suggestions to make him feel better, even to the point of us paying for the caterer instead of going on our honeymoon, therefore lessening my dad’s contribution, and he was just being so negative that I had to go to the bathroom and cry about it lol
