I know that I am getting really nervous, I walk around most days with a huge knot in my stomach. It’s definitely not second thoughts about marrying FI so I’m just putting it down to major nerves about everything going right on the wedding day. Maybe what you’re feeling is similar? I think it’s pretty normal to feel jittery before getting married.

  • Wedding: October 2013

@Lulume:  We marry Oct 10 in Jamaica. I am beyond anxious. 🙁 Every night I go to sleep and my mind races with all that is to be done and the sheer enormity of this life decision. I tell FI how I’m feeling or just cry to release the feelings from my body. 


We are going away just us 2 so I don’t have to deal with “big wedding” stuff but we still have 2 showers left, engagement photos out of town, 2 more dress fittings, a sash I’m waiting to come in hoping it matches, waiting to hear from hotel on some things that are important, packing and then cleaning our home so it can be painted while we are gone. This is all in addition to working FT, FI’s 7 year old son, dumb family drama from FI’s side making things really hard and dumb things his ex does on purpose to him to be mean…


sheesh. Calgon! Take me away! 




So yes…this time is stressful!! Don’t let anyone tell you different. Your wedding day should and will be happy but the time leading to it? No. Stress. 


I do my best to keep stress away by just doing what I can. I have zero doubt about marrying FI but I’m still scared. I’m 36… never married before. It’s an unknown. A leap of faith. Of course I’m scared. But I’m excited too. 🙂

@Lulume:  Is that cold feet? I’m somewhere between a blind rage & half wanting to jump off a cliff. Hahaha. Or call it off and elope. I’m being told it’s too late to do the eloping thing.

Stay strong! We were just discussing on another thread that it must be something about October 12. Everything will probably work out okay..maybe.
