Start by making a list of the things you have left to accomplish.  If you can, rate them in order of priority.  Then just start working down the list.  

Best of luck!  Remember, the planning experience is all what you make of it.  🙂

Step 1. Breathe! Everything will be ok. As LMD said, make a list of everything (literally – everything) you need to do. Think realistically about what you have time to do. Is there anything on there that you could live without? Are there things on there that can wait til after the wedding? Is everything on the list worth your worry and stress? If not, remove it. Now, stick the list to your fridge and cross things off as you go. Also get your FI to pick a couple and see if he can cross some off too. The simple action of crossing things off should be a great stress-reliever for you.

Step 2. Make room at the top of the list for an hour of “me time”. Book in for a massage, go for a lovely walk, or watch a movie in bed with a bowl of popcorn. Switch off your phone and just relax.

And I totally hear you about speaking in front of people. I was terrified too! Can you speak to your celebrant about it? I had a chat to mine and she made me feel completely at ease. Remember:

  • The people who will be listening are your closest friends and family. They aren’t waiting for you to make a mistake. They are happy for you and happy to be there.
  • You are saying the words to your FI, no-one else. Look him in the eyes and try to block out everyone else.
  • Try to concentrate on the meaning of the words you are saying, rather than how you say them.
  • No-one is expecting perfect delivery – if you make a mistake, have a giggle and move on.

Most of all, take care of yourself and try to have fun 🙂
