No panic attacks but things are definitely getting stressful. My dressmaker fell behind and is now 10 days past her deadline for my dress, which should be here Monday, if she sends it via expedited shipping from Greece tomorrow as she said she would. My FMIL is questioning all my flower choices, which is driving me crazy. Half my guests are for some reason calling FMIL and RSVPing to HER rather than just sending their cards back to me, so I’m going to have to make a bunch of phone calls and get numbers to start on my seating chart too. Oh, and we’re moving out of state next weekend and will have to come back down for the wedding 3 weeks later. Yippee! LOL

lol – our wedding is August 26th and I’m freaking out a little too!! I’m sure everything will be fine, but I’m basically going to have to work on wedding stuff every day until the wedding!

The seating chart will be a daunting task… but we really have to figure out the ceremony! A friend is marrying us so we’re designing the ceremony ourselves. We have ideas down, but I just want to get everything planned out. It’s definitely the element that is stressing me out the most!

@janie-janie: lol – I thought it would be the most fun part to plan! But it’s been a really daunting task. I just feel so funny picking poems or vows… it seems so strange to try to express your love in a nice way in front of everyone!

I was just having a minor freak out when I saw this thread.  Yes!  I am freaking out!  Mine mostly has to do with the fact that I am moving across the country in two days.  I am surprisingly calm about the wedding but that could be that I have plenty of other things to freak out about.  Ask me again on Monday when I am in Wisconsin… then it might be wedding freak out time.  Ahhh

Panic????? Ohhhhhh Yeahhh! I’m the 16th. I feel out of my mind. I’m getting married in a different state and then having the reception one month later. I have to make our vows which is daunting. No one is really responding, met with caterer today and finalized. Dress fitting (first and only) on Saturday. I feel like I have no money for everything that pops up. I never thought there was SOOOO MUCH to plan!! I need a drink!

I am actually in a good place right now  : ) I planned all along to deal with all the stresses of wedding planning far in advance and as the wedding became closer I was gonna calm down and enjoy my final weeks as a fiancee. Believe me I have had all the stresses a bride could have….. from family issues to money problems to unresponsive bridal party and groom to my “dream” dress I purchased 3 years ago now being a size too small and discontinued. I have had some of the best moments of my life and have had bridal meltdowns but I am more excited than ever and know in my mind and heart that I am ready to be a wife!

 

Good luck to all my twin dates and remember to breath and enjoy these last days as single ladies

I am absolutely freaking out – but trying to breathe at the same time! I am completely consumed with all of the little details, and am just afraid that I’m going to forget something major!! I also keep having these dreams that it’s the wedding day and we don’t have X, X, and X done. My most recent one was last night! Ahhh!!!

However, I am really trying to relax as much as possible and enjoy this time as well. I have really enjoyed it, up to this point! I think it’s natural to feel a little stress/panic as crunch time arrives.

Good luck, everyone!!
