- Wedding: May 2014
So I am 13 months and 2 days out from my wedding day. And I have made all kinds of “preliminary plans”. Everything will start tomorrow. I am feeling a little overwhelmed!!
Step one: Quit smoking so I can have all the money saved up to pay for some of the cost of a destination wedding. I think this part stresses me out the most. I am fairly certain that I can quit. Which brings me to……
Step two: Start working out. Loose some wwight. I will start this on Swptember 1st. I am really stressed over this because of all the weight gain issues that can come from step one……any suggesteions here would be terrific and much appreciated.
Step three: Pay desposits on ceremony, and hair and make-up. Hope to have this done by October first. Start really looking for a dress….but I am so overwhelmed. What if I cannot maintain the same size?? What if I cannot find a dress that will cover that ugly tattoo that I got when I was 18 and very intoxicated?? Oh and by the way I am 41 so my body doesn’t look as good as it did 10 years ago. Really dreading dress shopping….what kind of undergarments to I buy to wear to try on dresses?? Only good thing here is I am hour glass shaped…….
Step four: Don’t scare of the groom with all of my constant obsessing. Oh and did I mention I am making a career change this week? Yeah poor guy, I pity him. Thank god he loves me………
That is as far as I have gotten with my planning. I am thnking that will be more than enough to keep me busy for the next couple of months. I sometimes feel like I am setting myself up for a huge FAIL. I am not a first time bride, but this is the first time I am having a wedding day. I feel after all these years of waiting for mister right I deserve the best. But I am feeling like I am getting nothing done. Is this normal?? For the first time in my life I feel determined to see something through. I want that beautiful wedding day!!
Am I normal?? Do all brides go though all these mood swings??
