This is my first time on this site, and I’m still trying to find my way around. I am engaged & getting married 10/10/10! My deal right now is that I’m SO emotional. I guess this is normal, right? This wedding didn’t really hit me until Father’s Day, when I got my dress. Then came the invites, picking of rings, selecting certain songs, wedding projects, etc. & now everything makes me tear up. This is not like me, so I guess it’s strictly wedding. Does this get easier as it gets closer? I’m hoping I’m not like this on our wedding day, but what are some de-stressers or techniques I can use to calm myself down before getting to that point?
Thanks for any input! 🙂

I try not to do too much – small tasks every few days. I also write things down I need to do and give each task a reasonable timeline to have it completed by. If I feel like I a going to snap on someone, I walk out of the room or stop wedding stuff and do something else non-wedding related. I also am lucky in which I have a job w/ a lot of down time so I was able to do a TON of stuff @ work.
Maybe go to the gym? take walks? Bake? Anything to destress….Take up a new hobby?

I am still a ways off, so I am not sure about how emotional you get as you get closer to that day. I am sure it varies by person anyway, but I will give you this tip: allergy eye drops, the ones with antihistamines, they really keep me from tearing up too much. Besides that working out and meditation might calm your nerves a little too. I am sorry you are stressed, but congratulations and welcome to the bee!!

Thanks ladies 🙂 I’m not so much stressed as, when a certain song comes on I cry, when I think of my dad giving me away I cry, etc. I just don’t want to be a blubbering mess the whole day of our wedding.
Sweetpea, that is an excellent suggestion about the eye drops.
Thanks again 🙂

This may not be an option for you BUT…..
FI and I actually got married last year (1 year ago yesterday!) – we did it for a ton of reasons (mainly because we just wanted to be married already!) but I know the day of my wedding I won’t be a super emotional mess thinking about my dad walking me down the aisle, saying vows, 1st dances, etc.
