So, my wedding is on Saturday (6/6/09) and I had my pre-wedding break down last night. I think that the combination of stress at work and over-all exhaustion broke me down.
I think that people wait until the week of your wedding to be mean about you not inviting them or not giving them an "and guest" to your wedding. Why would someone do that? I think that it is situations like these that are KILLING me right now.
I guess I should be happy I broke down crying in the privacy of my own home and didn’t fly off the handle at someone in public!

Oh dear!!! Relax, deep breath!!! 🙂 You’re in love, you are planning a wonderful wedding – and no detail, or person, is worth getting upset over!! When I get upset over stuff, I like to do something to help get the stress away (long walk, bath, etc.) and then think about why I’m upset and what I can do to remedy the situation….. Is it even something worth trying to fix, or shoud I just get over it?!
Best of luck and hang in there!! Your wedding is SO SOON!!! You are going to be a beautiful bride and have the time of your life!!! 🙂

Oh goodness! Try not to worry! (What am I saying, I’ve had multiple wedding breakdowns already and I’m still 2 months out!)
Really though, remember that probably half the reason everything seems so overwhelming right now is from the stress of the past many months of planning, the probable lack of sleep, and the emotionally draining-ness of a wedding overall! Everything will turn out great.
Grab a glass of wine (or two), take a deep breath, and try to let it roll off you when people are being a pain in the arse. Some members of the hive have some great comebacks that I know I could never think of but that make me laugh–maybe they’ll weigh in here and give you something to say to those annoying peeps. Maybe also appoint someone not so stressed as you (MOH, mom, etc) to deal with last minute annoyances like people complaining–just refuse to talk to them! That’s what I plan to do. 🙂
Congratulations on your wedding being sooo close and try to take it all in stride!! Have FUN!
