I can’t really pinpoint what is going on with me but I just want to have a good long cry in my bed. I opened up my beautiful marriage certificate guest book (Quaker style) and found that my FI’s last name was missing. I just emailed the seller on Etsy kind of frantically at 1am and will be calling her first thing in the morning. In the original order I had put his entire name but in the proof she sent me it was missing. I looked at it wiggly as I work all the time and said there was speed to be an accent over a letter in my FI’s very long hyphenated name. She changed or and sent the proof back and it looked lovely. Only we both failed to realize his last name was missing. My full name appears correctly. If it were my last name missing I wouldn’t care. Now we are 1 day out and the seller takes about a week to print it. I asked if she could fix it and send me a file to take to a Kinkos or Staples, just to add to the list of things to do ayer the rehearsal tomorrow. I just want to cry and I NEVER cry. Ever. And I just got a spray tan so I really need to hold it in our I’ll be streaky lol. Maybe in the morning in the shower. Also I have been feeling like FIb had had it quite easy lately with the planning and helping. Ugh. Sorry to vent I’m just so overwhelmed and don’t want to bother my BMs with this. Thanks for reading if you made it this far.
I know it’s the whole process that it’s overwhelming not just the certificate, but damn that really was the breaking point.

You will be fine. You’re getting married tomorrow! This isn’t your legal marriage certificate (from an etsy seller). If it’s not perfect, they will fix it and it will be beautiful after the wedding. Go get married! 🙂 And if FI hasn’t been contributing to planning, hey, you’re a wife now… start your “honey do” list for him… it can be lifelong! 😛 Enjoy your day tomorrow!

@Nurse_Bee: Hey dat twin! Well it is one in the morning and so many things are falling apart! I feel super frantic and disorganized. Can’t sleep, think, talk, or even find the time to cry! I really just want to fall apart because I feel like I already am….Anyway, the point is that we made it this far and worrying won’t chnge the fact that tomorrow will come. So let us try to enjoy it! (easier said than done, ha!)

@Nurse_Bee: I know it will be irreplaceable but would it be possible to send it to her after to have his name somehow added?
im sorry that happened. A few things will go wrong but hopefully you can focus on all the things that go right! Have fun!

@Payless: Yes I can definitely identify with all of those feelings. We had our rehearsal today and my officiant is a psychiatrist. He kept trying to calm me down and just saying let all my worries go. I’m working on it! What I really want is a nap!!

It will be ok, you are just overwhelme, but it will pass and you will have a wonderful wedding. Things go wrong in weddings, but it does not change how wonderful your day will be. Just take a moment, collect yourself, and have a great time tomorrow.
