    @HourThyme:  Not married yet so can’t give advice on this but, damn, your parents are going on a vacation a week before the wedding?? That’s kinda messed up, I’m sorry you have to deal with that. Where are they going and why does it have to be now? 

     

    Hope you have others around to help with crazy last minute things that so many friends have already warned me about. The last month seems to be the most hectic. I can only imagine the last week to ten days!

    @HourThyme:  eff. I somehow deleted my previous post!

    i don’t think the dress she chose looks like the previous dress at all! I stewed about it for a day and then just said eff it. Whatever. I have no idea why she chose to do that! Even worse, she wasn’t planning on telling me at all! I would have been pissed to find out like that on the wedding day!!

    keep truckin girl!! I’ll make sure to check in with you next Sunday to see how great you feel! FREEDOMMMMM!!! 🙂

    @HourThyme:  DH and I were great, family was great, I was just really anxious. Irritable but not with anyone, just generally stressed and worrying about everything I could find to worry about. Wishing I’d eloped, yes!!! I kept saying “why did we do this again, we could have just been alone on a beach somehwere…” and he kept telling me it would all be worth it after, and it was.

    10 days prior I was also battling jet lag though so that helped to mute everything I was feeling in a haze of general sleepiness and confusion… but definitely kind of dreading it and regretting that we were doing it at all.

    But if it makes you feel any better I didn’t feel in control at all. The moments when I did feel good, it wasn’t “in control” it was “giving up trying to be in control and just letting whatever happens, happen”

    Edited to add also: The nice thing about being a panic-stricken dreading person is that you will never be that woman who gets post wedding depression because she desperately wishes she could go back and do it again. At least if you’re anything like me. I felt hazy and weird after, but the biggest feeling afterward was OMG THANK GOD THAT IS OVER. IT WAS GREAT BUT THANK GOD IT’S OVER AND I NEVER HAVE TO DO IT AGAIN. (Months later I still feel that way… I still get this little gleeful jolt like “hehehehe I survived that and I never have to do it again.”)

    I am getting married this Sunday! I’m ecstatic! But maybe it is because we are choosing to elope. If we had gone the traditional route I’d probably be stressed out! Bless your heart for putting up with the crazies. It is something I did not have the capacity to do.

    @HourThyme:  I am into planning so I had everything done for the most part. When it was close to the wedding I had a lot of help. My mom, dad, FI, and 6 bridesmaids all offered help (nobody had to do much if anything at all). I just got a little nervous as the day got closer.

    I was only stressed about issues that the inlaws were causing…but honestly, I decided that I’d make the best of it, gave my plans to my coordinator, and cut them out of the planning at that point.   It made things easier.  DH was awesome during the whole process, and my girls (for the most part) were a dream!
