Im an 8/31/13 bride and Im starting to feel the pressure of the 6 month count down! Most all of my to do ‘s are crossed off, minus some small things for decor and figuring out the wedding cake, but now we are in “payment” mode. Trying to figure out finances is so stressful! And then this week I started having weird wedding dreams. LOL! Maybe I just need to calm down and take a little break from thinking about the wedding. Anyone else feeling the pressure??

We’re date twins! I am definitely starting to get stressed and antsy about everything lol. I still have not decided almost anything as far as decor, and I change my mind every other week as far as centerpieces 😛 I try to remind myself that six months is still plenty of time and as long as I stay on top of what is left, everything will be fine 🙂

We’re also basically in payment mode, which is stressful. No one who’s helping out will actually talk about money, and I still haven’t found a better job (not for lack of trying). Other than that, I’m waiting for the weather to warm up so I can do some painting and we just have some other small stuff (cake flavors, etc.).
I’m definitely stressing (I clench my jaw at night when I’m stressed) about lots of stuff, though. :

I was feeling like that as well my wedding is 04/20/13 and now I’m laying low now as everything is done. We’re just making the last few payments for all the vendors. I was feeling stressed a few months ago, so I understand. It will get better though.

Another date twin! I was feeling anxious but I had a majorly productive week. Right now I feel like its so far away everyone is going to get so annoyed about hearing about it

I also stress pretty often. Thankfully we will have the whole wedding paid off by next week, but now Im stressing about getting things done in time, trying not to forget things, etc. And Ive been having wedding nightmares for about 8 months now. ha

I had my first bout of wedding stress/irritation. I felt like I didnt know what was going on with my bridesmaids. I am over it and happy again.

@stephko99: Im glad Im not the only one. I tend to be a BIG money stresser and my fiance is not. Everything feels like its coming so fast, which Im a fan of, cant WAIT to marry this man….but the finances are stressing me out. Little details I feel like Im forgetting are stressing me out. Keep feeling like Im forgetting something. Apparently this is normal. I just keep reminding myself if at the end of all this I am married t the man of my dreams, its all worth it. Heads up ladies!! Only a few months til D Day 🙂

I oscillate between feeling like I’m on top of everything, to feeling like I’ve got nothing done. I’m starting to get the wedding dreams in full force, where I wake up on my wedding day and all I’ve done so far is all I have for the wedding. Sometimes I’ll look at my to-do list and feel like it’s going okay, and sometimes I feel tremendously overwhelmed.
A couple of months ago, I even got depressed when I had anything to do with planning. I got headaches every time I even opened my planning page. I took a break for awhile and seemed to snap out of it.

I’m in worry-about-finances mode and work is very stressful right now. For that reason, I wish the wedding day was here so I could be past all the finances stress and the can-I-really-make-my-bouquet stress and look forward to the time off from the office, lol!
I am also unhappy about the guest list, we’re spending a lot just to throw lunch for our families, it feels like right now…

My biggest stress right now is NOT having a dress. UGH!

I was doing so good for so long and stress free but then yesterday it just hit me! On Sunday, I finalized the menu and bar options wuth my parents so felt very accomplished and in a great place with 5 months to go. THEN I come home and my FI says his parents want to change the rehearsal dinner to include all OOT guests which may mean a different location plus redoing the invites and making more packets that were already completed. Then he emails me about adding 2 more friends to the wedding guest list (he is already 6 over the number we gave him and we already said no to these 2 a few months ago). AND then the icing on the cake was our wedding planner at our venue’s last day is May 1st so I have 3-4 months to bring someone else up to speed and hope I like her! Hopefully today is a better day…
