I don’t know whose brilliant idea it was to get married less than a month after Christmas. Oh right . . . it was mine. I am so done with wedding planning. I have vendors e-mailing me daily asking for my decisions on all these little loose ends. I feel like all I do is come home from work and work on wedding stuff. I miss my FI too even though he is in the same room with me, wedding planning is all we ever seem to do now. I know it is crunch time with 6 weeks to go, but ugh! I just want it to be over already. Nevermind the fact that I have a ton of Christmas shopping to do or its finals or that I have to go to a conference in San Francisco in a week or that my grandfather is sick and having surgery today. I honestly do not think I can handle all this!

BREATHE!! Just relax!! Take everything one day at a time. Soend time with your gpa and take a few days out of the week to take care of wedding planning. Do Xmas shopping on the weekend when you have time.
Just put things in importance order and go from there…can anyone help you? Maybe have FI make call backs for vendors?

You are not alone.
I am right there with you, destination wedding and all, I just have a couple months more. It seems like everyday there’s something else or someone else to worry about.
Take it in small bites. Can you online shop today at lunch?
Sending good vibes about your granddad.

People are helping, I guess I am just a control freak and need to have a lot of say. I am slowly getting better at delegating. Last night, I had my brother pick out beers and my parents pick out wines to serve. I wish I had a weekend but this weekend is my bachelorette (without my dear friend who planned it because she broke her foot and has the flu) and next weekend I am going to San Francisco for the conference. Oh and we have company staying with us all next week. Oh dear . . .

It gets super overwhelming in the end. I wanted to ditch it all about this time too. Take some time for yourself, even if it’s a bubble bath. As far as Christmas goes, try online shopping so you’re not running store to store. Also, figuring out the little stuff that doesn’t matter so much can be dropped. I know we brides stress about the littlest things, but then when the wedding happens, it’s disappointing when no one even notices those things – trust me, some things don’t have to be done. Good luck!

Just try to relax. You are getting near the end. I was near the end of my rope when it got close to the wedding too. I actually let other people decide some important things whichreally helped to take off some of the stress. I’m sorry that your friend can’t be there for your bachelorette party. I’m sure you will have a lot of fun anyway. Just try to use this weekend to relax and not think about the wedding. When you come back, either give other people responsibilities or just choose something quickly if it really doesn’t seem to be that important to you.
