I was just wondering. . is anyone else feel like they are being strechted 8 different ways at 9 different times? I am seriously at the point where becoming a hermit and living high up on a mountain in a cave sounds SO good to me. With the impending wedding, school,work, and the ever mounting mama-drama. I feel as though i cannot possible take any more. My dress is not here yet (i ordered it 10/08), my guests are dropping like flies, everyone seems to have opinion on everything except what matters, FI is sick and I’m about to put a Sara-sized hole througha brick wall. LOL Sorry for the mini-tantrum girls. I just needed to vent. All my best girls are strewn throughout the world (from Hawaii to England and back again) and i just need a hug.
Thanks for listening

We lost 49 out of 210 guests. They apparently don’t realize that a wedding is THE place to be.
It gets better! I was crazy stressed in April and it has way settled down.

*Hive Hugs* Take a good deep breath. Then look at the 3 or 4 things that are most important to you about your wedding. Hubby, Food, Photos, what means the world to you? Make sure those things are taken care of and then look at the rest of it as icing on the cake (bad joke, I know). I tried picking one task per work week, and 3 or 4 to accomplish on the weekend. I feel MUCH calmer taking it slowly!

one breath in one breath out; yes, I’ve had my moments too and completely understand what you’re going thru, guess we all that’s why this website is so great;
think of it this way; now you’ll have plenty of space, you’ll spend less on guests, more quality time for the people who matter; it’ll be the ones closest to you who will make an effort to make it anyway; I only invited 60 and they are rsvping with yes’s, because they are closest to us, it’s a small number but they are the ones who matter; so you will be spending your day with all the special people in your life; when people invite 150, to be honest you are really only closest to 50–immediate family and best friends; it’s a blessing in disguise; most people want guests to drop out because weddings are not cheap, you’ll be saving a fortune!
take one task at a time
listen to people’s advice or input with one ear open; I pretty much made all the decisions (mom’s far; my FI and his friends and family lives in another country) when people do give input I just say that’s nice, it’s what I cthink that matters (hehehe) think I hurt my mom’s feelings so think I need to lay low on this one
your FI will get better
my sis says dont worry it will all work out; important thing is you will be with you future husband that is all that counts
