i’m feeling really stressed out, although I think we’ve got a good handle on everything. The wedding is now 5 months away and I just feel like I have so much to do! All I want to do is cross things off my to-do list, but I’m not sure what else I can do at this point. We have all our vendors, the honeymoon is booked, my sister is in the process of designing the invites (she already finished the save the dates, which we mailed), I ordered my gown, we bought FI’s suit and accessories, the BMs have picked out their dresses, we blocked the hotel rooms, we chose our officiant (a friend), and I’m addressing envelopes now. Anyone have ideas for little things I can just get done now and corss off my list? Also, how do you keep yourself from stressing out over wedding stuff? I am beginning to lose sleep thinking about everything I have to do! It doesn’t help that Fiance and I will be moving about 6 weeks before the wedding. Ultimately, this is a good thing because he got a great new job, and we’re only going to move about 20 miles from where we live now, but it’s just another thing I have to plan/worry about!

Not doing it.
Seriously, I take like 2 days off from wedding planning per week. I try not to talk about it, look at stuff related to it, or take calls/emails regarding it.

@bells219: Maybe taking a break would be good. I’ll try that! Thanks!

I think not talking about it is the hardest part for me. My wedding isn’t until next year and it’s all I think about. haha. But I’ve been working out – running or doing some work out videos and it takes my mind off things. It sounds like you’ve gotten a lot off your list though. That’s wonderful! 🙂

Try to relax…you still have plenty of time plus you have SO much done. Take a break for yourself and do non-wedding related things. Remember, your wedding is just one day. It’s not worth it to get so stressed out! Hang in there!!

I agree with @bells219, take some time off from wedding planning and come back in a few weeks. 🙂

I turn off WeddingBee (sorry guys hehehe I love it here I do) and put away everything wedding and have a cuddle with Fiance… Makes me remember why all this stress is worth it… Even WHEN he is being a pain in the ass and not helping with the wording for the invitations (oooops breathe 🙂 <~~~ that was today’s annoyance but they are all done now :))

Yep, it’s just like everyone’s saying, you have to take breaks from planning. Even if it means everything may not be totally on schedule, you just need to put everything aside and do something you love to do.
