Only 18 more days for me!! My stress is FINALLY starting to subside.

 

We have been engaged since Sep 2012 and thought that over a year engagement would allow up to spread out the planning and enjoy it… well that didn’t happen!

 

We booked our venue last December and found out last month that it was undergoing renovations and we had to move the entire wedding.

 

So between searching for a new venue, new food tastings, arranging transportation (it was previously at a hotel so transportation wasn’t needed), and re-printing our invites (the invites with the old venue were done on the same day they told us we would likely have to change venues), I have had my fair share of wedding stress over the past 10 weeks.

 

Now, its just little things that my wonderful mother is taking care of so I can enjoy the next 2.5 weeks.

 

I am getting SO EXCITED!

39 days for us! I’m super nervous about everything running smoothly and stressed about all of the what-ifs(ummm…snow?!).  We checked off our rehearsal dinner this past weekend, which was the last big item we had on our to do list.  I’m trying my best to enjoy this part, but I really want to just be married to my best friend and start this next step in our lives. 

I hear ya on the excited butterflies.

18 days left for me!!

It’s just a lot of little things that need to get finished up that are driving me nuts.  I just want to be DONE and relax and enjoy it.  My new goal is to have everything totally finished by the 25th. We’ll see if I can pull it off…..

I want to commit blue murder. I have never been so stressed out in my whole entire life and just want to scream my head off until my lungs bleed. 

GAH. 

I’ve had some health crap going on recently which meant wedding organising took a total back seat for a couple of weeks whilst I worried and cried my eyes out about the prospect of not being able to have kids yada yada. 

And now I’ve finally managed to put it to the back of my mind and concentrate on wedding stuff and I want to kill.

I leave for Mexico in 9 days and I’ve still SO much to do. And the hotel won’t even respond to my emails and are going back on some words of theirs. 

My hen do this weekend I cancelled because my so-called “friends” are all lame and no one could be bothered to come. So I’ve been crying over that too. 

I’ve just stuff my face with crisps and chocolate in the hope it would calm me down!!!

@Sugar_and_Spice:  Ahh! We’re date twins! (never changed my date on here!)

I feel the exact same way! I’m really nervous, too! There’s just so much to buy and figure out! (Just ordered our cocktail napkins! stressing over transportation/flowers!) 

The immensity of being married and becoming a wife in three weeks is also hitting me! We’ve been engaged since August of 2012 so it’s always felt like it’s way out there and now, it’s only 3 weeks away, which is huge! Ahhh so nervous! and we’ve been saving ourselves so there’s that! huge changes all around!

I can’t believe it’s coming up so soon… eek!! I still have a few things to do, but nothing unmanageable. I honestly just want it to be over… we’re having a small wedding but I am so not a wedding person!!

I’m now starting to freak out!!  Thinking that having a wedding on NYE was a bit ridiculous…more so a destination wedding to boot!!!  

I am actually getting super OCD about things and am going to put together the way I want the tables to look etc case I know things will get lost in translation otherwise and make my eye twitch. 

I’m batteling with the important people cause I’ve nixed flowers from the wedding aside from the bridal bouqets so now its trying to find something else for the candelabra center pieces (blowers/hats maybe). 

Plus on top of all of it – surprise we had a baby – so much for the doctors being right about never having kids (grumble) so I had to buy a new dress cause my original doesn’t fit.  I’m borderline over it all to frantic it will be bloody perfect if I have to do this….sigh…

29 days for us, so excited!! FI surprised me with a weekend in Barcelona for the two of us this weekend to relax a bit before the madness. 

I’m a huge Christmas person anyway so I get really excited this time of year, and adding in such a big happy celebration has put me a little bit in happy overdrive!

30 days for me! Almost pooping myself! Feel stressed up to the eyeballs with stuff I’ve got to do – but I don’t actually know what these things are! 

Most of the stuff that needs organising and setting up etc can’t be done till the day before and that feels so last minute to me! I’m just trying to work through my to-do list and do whatever I can now so I can chill a little bit more!

We have 9 days left now! I still haven’t gotten all my DIY stuff done.. But I’ll get it done lol. I’m a procrastinator sometimes. But I also have a lot going on with finals at school the week before and after my wedding. Anyone else have that “fun experience”? lol.
