Our big day is 9 days away and while we have the big stuff squared away and just a handful of little things left to do, I woke up this morning feeling very very anxious and emotional. Is this normal? How did you deal with it? I’m not nervous or upset but just incredibly on edge with so many feelings!! I don’t even know why or what is triggering it. My fiancé is doing his best to calm me down but I feel like I’m going to explode or have a meltdown or something. I’ve been good up until yesterday. Today we hit the single digits and I’m having heart palpitations. Serenity now!!!!

rittenhousenewbee: Our wedding is in 3 days and I had that same feeling a few days ago. Everyone kept reminding me that we were less than a week away and I literally broke down crying. Instead of feeling excited I was feeling anxious thinking about the million little things that needed to get done before the day. I made a list and divided tasks between myself and FI and we plugged away at it for two days straight. Last night I finished up everything with maybe one or two small tasks left to do. Now that everything is almost off the list I’m feeling much more calm and excited about the day.

Today is the first day in a week where I haven’t woken up in a cold sweat. So, I think it’s normal at least! My friend who is getting married a week after I am is also very anxious and I know she and I are normally not anxious people, so I think it is just part of the territory. I’m trying to tell myself that the important things will go smoothly, and everything else doesn’t matter and/or could make a funny story if it goes sideways. At the end of the day, we’ll be married and won’t ever have to do this again, lord willing! 🙂
That said, when we were out last night and the bartender (who we are friendly with) was like, “so you guys are getting close right?” and my fiance said, “Yup, next week” I was like, next week?!? Oh my god, that’s way too soon. Haha.

umm I pretty much have been crying over spilled milk. I sent out final emails yesterday confirming schedules for everyone. I’m sick of being the “go-to girl” and answering a million questions! I conveniently got a bladder infection yesterday… and Aunt Flo showed up today, but that means everything will be clear and gone by next friday!!! Things have been falling perfectly in place and I’m ready to get in to town and celebrate with my family!

I’m a mess and mine is still 16 days away. There are SO many little things to do. It’s really overwhelming. I also found out I have to work the Thursday before my wedding, which I was planning on taking off. I was really hoping to knock out a bunch of stuff that day so I could spend time with everyone who is flying in on Friday. I ate an entire platter of fried chicken and french fries yesterday. So mad at myself!

I’m with you! 9 days! I’m feeling a bit better than last week because I was able to get all (well, most lol) of my DIY’s done on the weekend. But I feel like I am constantly sending emails and trying to get all my ducks in a row. I have pretty much constant butterflies and whenever I talk about the wedding with someone I feel myself get hot in the face when I realize it’s NEXT weekend.
Not to mention I can’t stop checking the long term forecast and they’re calling for 70% chance of showers right now 🙁

I’m totally freaking out .. Everyone keeps asking me if I am ready, uhhh yes, no?! I don’t know! My FI is getting irritated with everything, his GM’s are calling him left and right asking questions and if so and so can come .. SEND YOUR RSVP’S BACK PEOPLE. AHHHHHH

lannjam: I still have two people who decided they don’t need to RSVP. It’s just rude.
I am so so so ready to be on the honeymoon. I’m just trying not to worry about every little detail for the wedding. I tink we are done with all the prep so OF COURSE, now I am convinced that we forgot something BIG. Arghhhh. And the weather forecast keeps changing every day! I’m slowly losing my mind..thankfully my FI is my rock and has become somewhat of a therapist over the last week. He’s more amused than anything since I know freaking out over weather isn’t going to help anything..but I do it anyway.

While I don’t like to see/read that people are as stressed as I am, it is also such a source of comfort. Our wedding is 9/20 and my fiance has a work retreat this weekend that we are going to so last weekend was our last weekend at home before the wedding. I have been doing so much ahead of time, as I’ve been able to that we could actually spend half a day with friends, which was nice. I’m pretty sure I might regret it later this week when we are trying to get out of town and only have a half day when we get back before we turn around and leave for our wedding destination.
I’ll be thinking of all the September brides and especially 9/20 date twins. 🙂 My best friend keeps reminding me that as long as I’m there, my fiance is there, and we have someone there to make it legal we’ll be ok. So I leave that with everyone on here. You’re not the only one who is feeling the way you do! Take a deep breath and remember how much fun it will be! 🙂
