I just need to know I’ll be okay. I feel like I could snap at any point now. We about 11 weeks and 4 days out from out wedding and my anxiety is at about 1,000. My heart has been racing, I can’t breathe. I bought out invitations Firnday night and printed a test yesterday and ran out of ink and I LOST it. I mean I started crying so hard I almost threw up and ended up on the bathroom floor almost convulsing. My FI was ready to call 911. I’m not a dramatic person I just feel so much pressure! WTF was I thinking, working, wedding and school starts again in 2 weeks! This is my facebook status today…
“..slowly I feel like Bridezilla creeping up! She may explode on the next people who wants to give me unwanted advice, wants to tell me how it “should be” or just has a stupid ass question. And PS- if you ask Terry something and he doesn’t know or gives you the wrong information it’s your fault for going to him, should have come to me. #overit.”
I’ve had friends asking me to find a hotel with a shuttle. I live in the COUNTRY, there is no shuttle! Much less I don’t have TIME to call around. I sent out a list of hotels, FIGURE IT OUT! Or don’t come, thats how done I am with this. My FI comes home all the time from a buddys house and the wife is asking him questions about the wedding. Details like who is my dress designer, how much was my dress. Really?!
Sorry just needed to rant a bit. This stupid thing can’t come soon enough.

Do you do yoga? If not, sign up NOW. Seriously- it was my saving grace throughout the wedding planning period.
It will get better, and afterwards, you’ll have that awesome “Ahhh. I don’t have to do any more stupid planning- whoo-hoo!” You can get through this!!! 🙂

Take a day and just do NOTHING with wedding stuff. I know it might seem like you are wasting time but I’ve found that it sometimes helps to do nothing with what is causing you stress if you can afford the time. Best of luck. It does get better. 🙂

@Mrs.Lotus: I agree.
I took a week off from wedding planning & it was awesome and so needed. You should give that a shot.

@Kristyn02: I’m sorry you’re feeling that way. Go get yourself some Mario’s Pizza (mmmmmm) and relax for a day. No wedding talk at all!

No more Facebook posts, it will cause unnecessary drama and hurt feelings (the last thing you need it sounds like).
Go on a wedding strike. 2 full days of nothing wedding related.

OP, I get it. This morning I was so OVER my wedding. Last night my FFIL told us he wanted an additional 70 guests to represent their side of the family. I nearly tore my FI’s head off for not wrangling in his parent’s constant commands. Then I went onto theknot to check to-do list and there was nearly 75+ things left. I went into panic mode and totally shut down. I ended up calling in sick to work, spent the day lounging in bed, drank some tea, and played with my niece and nephews. Tomorrow I decided to make a list of the major items and tackle it one by one. Then I plan to sit my FI and MoH (my sister) down and start assigning tasks. OP, this is all doable. The stress can be alarming at times, but keep your head up and keep the your eye on the big picture. Good luck!

I agree about having some wedding blackout time. Schedule it if you have to. Get a massage and a facial, work out, eat some pizza, nap, have some wine, or do whatever else you have to in order to turn off your wedding brain and find some calm. And just know that if something doesn’t get done in the end or someone complains about something stupid, you’ll still end the day happy, married, and in love!
Where are your bridesmaids/family members who will give you a hand?

tiny weddings for the win 😛
I’m sorry you’re feeling like this. Like PPs have said, take a day or a whole week off .. NO wedding related bullcrap. You need it *hugs*

and this is why I would hide from my phone for hours at a time during the week of my wedding. You are not alone.

@Fall_In_Love22: Mario’s is the best! Love their pizza!!
Thanks everyone for the advice! I think a break is much needed. All my family/bridesmaids are in Chicago and we are having a pow-wow in 2 weeks when I go home to visit.

@Kristyn02: Yeah it is! Go get yourself a big pizza!

agree with PPs-the wedding-free weekend will do wonders for you. Also agree about keeping the wedding talk off FB-people could take it the wrong way, and you don’t need more drama.

Thanks for the advice but no. I’m not taking it down. This wedding has been a JOKE. His family has literally had NOTHING to do with it. I post about the wedding all the time, link our website once a week. All the info is on Facebook or the website. And yet people want to ask if the wedding is still on?? Really??? My family & friends are super involved so they are not offended and understand my frustration with his family. And I hope it offends them! They don’t even keep in contact with him. Terrible.
