    A combination of talking about it and working out!  It’s not really the wedding plans that stress me out but all the other crap going on, too COMBINED with wedding planning….

    I guess I do a mixture of all (excercise, talk, munch or pamper).  I’m treating myself to a pedicure tomorrow, even though it’s supposed to be in the 40s, but I would say on average I turn to munchies when I’m feeling stressed…

    Wedding stuff is tough because fiance isn’t here for ‘date night’ to get my mind off of wedding stuff/stress.  I think I’ll be getting more massages and facials before the wedding in June! 🙂

    Talk it out, I’m all about talking. Not just with my fiance or WB … I talk to anyone who will listen!!  Usually my mom or sister or my bff get the brunt of it.  I can already tell my sister is over it so I’m trying hard not to bug her with anything. But I really just need to bounce my thoughts off of someone and then I feel 100 times better.

    I talk to FI a lot when I’m stressed because he can talk me down. We also like to take trips to the beach which is only about an hour and a half away. His parents have a beach house there and we can just relax and not have to worry about anything (and there is no cell phone service).

    When I was planning I would usually vent to one of my bridesmaids or my mom.

    A talker for for…or I vent on here…it helps me to get it out either verbally or in writing.

    When wedding stress overtakes my emotions I like to make lists. Hahahha. It gives me a clearer picture. 🙂

    i make a lot of lists so that i can concentrate on one task at a time instead of constantly thinking (and worrying!) about the bigger picture.

    i also make time for non-wedding related things. i think its easy to get so carried away with reading blogs, making lists, and talking about ideas with FI and my friends that i have to make time for all the things that have always interested me and will continue to interest me after the wedding – like reading, seeing movies and plays, walking around the city, hanging out with friends, dining out, etc.

    i try to take as much naps as i can ( unfortunately, not so often because i work 9-5 and study 6-10, and also have this wedding to plan!), and drink hot tea to relax at night… and on weekends, we only do wedding stuff on saturday… sunday is to enjoy ourselves!
