You’re not alone! I did the same thing when it came to our wedding. I stressed out over everything, and just couldn’t wait until it was all over. Just take a deep breath and tackle one thing at a time. Start today with your table linens. Look at only that online so that you can make sure you get that checked off of your list. If it takes you the rest of the week, then so be it! Then tackle your centerpieces…one thing at a time!

I think you’re getting overwhelmed by comparing yourself to everyone else.

You don’t have to have special table linens.  I just went with what the club offered for my wedding and you know what, as long as they were clean, it didn’t matter to anyone.  I didn’t worry about how they were folded.

You’ve still got time to address your invitations (my sister’s wedding is 2 weeks before yours and she doesn’t even have her invitations yet, much less her envelopes).

Make a list of what absolutely has to be done (usually, if you’re having a seated dinner, it will only be table assignments & invitations).  You probably need a cake and flowers.  As far as the music goes, you won’t get to hear it anyway.

Hope that helps.

I agree with 2Peas!  Breathe, girl, breathe!  Then step away from the computer (wedding blogs are so addicting, believe me, I understand!) and start on your to-do list.  Can you set a goal to get one thing checked off your list each week?  Or address ten invitations each night?  Try not to look at the whole list and tackle little bits and pieces.  Work on the important stuff first and don’t be afraid to scrap projects that aren’t worth your time!

Have you made an inspiration board? It is easier to pick out a theme when you have one.   Do you have a particular feeling that you want your weddinng to have?  Do you have photos of your venue?  I saw that you did some lovely tissue paper balls to hang that look great!  Maybe we could help, if you’re having trouble putting all your ideas together to come up with a cohesive type feeling or look.  🙂

I started to get the same way and I stopped looking things up online. I couldn’t read Weddingbee for about 2 weeks (Frown) but it helped me to stop comparing my wedding to everyone else’s and looking at all the amazing DIY projects they have on here. I started thinking about my wedding only and what I had to get done. Then you need to just stop thinking about it and start doing whatever is on the list! It can be a difficult switch to make sometimes (from looking/planning to doing), but you will feel much better once you can start to cross things off of your list!

You are COMPLETELY normal. I did this too until I realized that mostly everything left is LITTLE stuff. Make priorities. Address your invites first, then start doing the littler fun things, like buying a hair flower. You can do this! And then when you’re done, you don’t have to do it ever again! lol 🙂 Good luck!
