The last thing I want to do is write a rant but it seems like I’m alone on this subject and want to spill it out where there would be other ladies who would completely understand.
My wedding is in exactly 64 days…
I have exactly ZERO things done…
Yes, I got the rentals, officiant, our rings, the dress. But everything else is DIY and I can’t seem to get anything done. Our invites which are should be going out this week aren’t even complete yet…we are still waiting for half the stuff in the mail because of the damn Canada Post Strike and there’s the never ending battle of the Brown Cardstock (which I’m going to bite the bullet and now MAKE the paper!) Ugh…
I know everything is gonna work out, and it will all get done but seriously, less almost 2 months away and I have less done than some ladies with almost year a to go!!
Anyways, sorry for the rant 🙁 I just had to say something since I feel sooo uber alone right now.
Thanks for the ears 🙂 <3

First let me say : HUGS
Second, is there anyone that you can get help from?
With 2 months away from the wedding, have you considered sending E-vites? Not only do you have the postal strike working against you, but you also have a short amount of time.
I would really save the stress of making them and just send them electronically to the people you know use the net and make a few simple ones for those who dont.
What other diy projects do you need help with?
And sorry no one replied… sometimes the bee makes me feel down… they are always ready to jump on dramatic posts but miss the posts where other bees need the most support.

Do your BMs live locally? Could you maybe schedule a DIY party and have wine, chick flicks, and good food while you work on stuff?
Don’t feel bad about losing small details too. Some of the things that are so important to us don’t even go noticed by the wedding guests. Do you mind my asking, what is on your DIY list?

Girl, if you need brown card stock, I will UPS you some. There is a hobby lobby right down the road from me. 😉
I’m serious too. If you need something let me know!

@misskarianne: Wow, you are too sweet. To the OP, why don’t you make a list of the things that absolutely need to be done and then start checking them off one by one. Slowly but surely, you will find that things will start getting done. Good luck.

Just breathe and take it one step at a time. Have you thought about simplifying the things you have left to do? Whatever you do, stay sane.
*Sorry, I was asleep 6 hours ago, otherwise I would have given you a hug right then

Awe ladies you make me feel SO much better!!
Now that I’ve calmed down a bit I can go through this a bit more clearly LOL I’ve had a lot of drama the past week due to waiting for my doctor to FINALLY get ahold of me with my MRI results…which thank god is all good eek! 🙂 and FI being just as tempermental as me so now it’s my weekend and I don’t feel like I’m just waisting precious time while at work 🙂
@tranquility: Yes I have 🙂 We are emailing/calling everyone on our list and telling them that the Invites will be on their way shortly (since I still wanna send them out) and our RSVP date, etc. Thankfully we sent out STD’s and stuff travels very well via word of mouth in my family LOL
@misskarianne: Awe you’re too sweet!! 🙂 I’m going to try and make some homemade recycled paper tomorrow to give my invites a personal touch and if that doesn’t work out I’ll PM you!! 🙂
@Keltaena: I just did that at work today..the list is pretty long but I’m sure it’s going to be fine 🙂 I have 3 BM’s, a mom a fire dept. full of guys and a FI that I can use as my personal slaves muahaha 🙂 …they’re going to feel sorry for saying “if you need anything, just let me know” LOL
I think I’ll end this post like this…
..In the words of my FI “You’re a Bride, you have every reason to go crazy” 🙂
