If you can take some time off I would. Maybe go on a couple of dates with the FI where y’all don’t talk wedding at all. Go get a massage, see a movie, anything where you can’t talk! 🙂

I feel exactly the same way you do.  My job situation isn’t helping either.  I really feel like i want to explode and it’s crazy because i’m normally a calm and quiet person.

I’d like to hear tips as well.  right now, i’m just trying to get everything done as early as possible and cross things off my list so I won’t have to stress about things last minute.

We’re getting married the same day, congrats! 🙂

My advice is just to take a break for about 2 or 3 days and calm down. Do something fun with your fiance and don’t worry about the wedding or anything else. I know it’s hard, but I also know things have a way of falling into place. Your wedding will be perfect!

I am suggesting was KateMW has said. Take time off from it all. Believe me when I say that it worked for me.

I would suggest that you have a good cry. Seriously, let it all out. Talk yourself through everything that is stressing you out and cry it all out. THEN, pick yourself back up, and maybe spend the rest of your day NOT doing anything wedding related. Like Kate suggested, maybe go out with the hubs-to-be and agree NOT to mention the wedding. Spend a day like that, and tomorrow you will wake up much more refreshed and ready to finish up your planning.

You are SO CLOSE to your date, and it is understandable that you are so emotional right now. I am sure there is TONS left to do, and it is so stressful to feel like you have your deadline looming. You WILL get all of the important stuff done, and if you don’t get the smaller stuff done, your day won’t be any less special or any less amazing because of it. 

Hang in there! All of these emotions are normal, and you will get through it all! Hive hugs!!!

take an afternoon or day of. call up your best friend(s) and bitch and moan. do something that’s NOT wedding related and where it won’t even come up.

then when you’re ready, reassess the todo list. what can you not live with? what will no one else notice / care about? narrow down the list, prioritize and delegate.

it gets better.. trust me. and it will all come together

Do something to pamper yourself.  Take some time to relax.  Spend an evening with your FH and a bottle of wine and focus on all that will be after all of this.  I was a HUGE ball of stress before the wedding.  My last day of work I broke down crying several times because I was so stressed out.  Luckily we had to travel for our wedding so once we were at the location, everything was able to melt away, but I really needed that break.

Good luck!
