I’m so sorry you are having problems.  Is there anything that can be done to fix the problems?

I’m at the two month mark, but I feel the same way.  Most of it has been Not Wedding Related, but its still one thing after another and I’m just tired of stressing.  And we’re getting serious backlash about our adults only reception decision.

Hah! Totally! I’m at the two month mark but in the last week we’ve been in a (minor) car accident, which delayed getting our rings finished, found out that the bus to take people from the ceremony to the reception can’t actually go to the city where the ceremony is, that the tailor working on my FIs tux is a big fat *liar* and we have to start all over with someone else, and our invitations will take longer to print than we expected (thank god we sent out save the dates!)… Literally all in the last seven days!

Maybe if we all vent about the redic stuff going on, it will eventually become funny!  So c’mon morgan_e_johnson let’s hear about your shit 🙂

I can’t necessarily say that the sh*t is hitting the fan… but I can say there are a lot more stressors happening all of a sudden!  Everyday someone trys my nerves.  Friends and family asking dumb questions (like when is the ceremony.  Uh, the invitation clearly states the info), people losing the rsvp card, people not understanding why rsvp’ing or showing up at all is important, vendors not returning calls, my grandmother giving me crap because she thinks I should drop everything to see her shoe show… I don’t care what shoes she wants to wear to the wedding!  Everything is starting to drive me mad!

Just dealing with each one at a time…starting to feel some satisfaction that we’re able to tackle each situation with teamwork & compromise & still want to get married to each other.  Who knew that wedding planning would be such good practice for the actual marriage?

I’m almost to the point of where I want to elope just to have everyone be quiet. But in the end I won’t because there has been so much money put into it.

Where to begin, well VERY LONG story short, my Fiance just started talking to his best friends after a year of silence (on his part). I literally thought he wasn’t going to have any groomsmen and I wouldn’t have one of my best friends at my own wedding. So I’ve been stressing about that until recently.

Well now that Fiance is talking to his friends, my best friend has been kicking intogear and wanting me to get all wedding stuff done 2 weeks before the wedding. I was fine with getting it done the week of. That’s why I took that whole week off. So she’s stressing me about details.

His mom keeps asking to help, and although I appreciate the offer, most of the things left are a one person job. So what does she do, she asks my best friend to give her some of the things, that I’m very particular about (almost to point of bridezilla, but not quite there) that I would like to do myself. I have this mentality (only about certain aspects of the wedding) that if I do it myself and it fails then all I have to blame is myself, if someone is thrown into the mix I don’t know what will happen, especially since it’s so close to the date.

And on top of it all, I ask my Fiance to take care of some of the deatils and I don’t see it getting done until 2 mos after I ask him, or I have to do it myself.

Sorry, I needed to get it out there. It’s been stressing me out so much I actually haven’t been on here since Friday. LOL! It’s amazing what stress can do to a person.

In the last two-three weeks, so many things have gone wrong! Ugh! First, I find out the hotel where we booked rooms never actually reserved the block.  Then something major went wrong with one of my BM’s dresses. Last week I found out our reception venue had us booked for the wrong date, and today our ceremony musician canceled!! Most of the stuff has been worked out, except for the musician but it is so stressful! My planning has been mostly stress free up until a few weeks ago, but now I am really starting to worry about how everything will work out. I am also starting to doubt all of my decoration ideas and I am just a nervous wreck, bordering on panic attack, all the time! 🙁

Yeah, how about being 13 days out and not having a dress ready! I have two dresses in alterations;  one’s a disaster, one I’m hopeful about but doesn’t match any of my accessories, and a third dress (which I ordered last minute as a backup in case the first two don’t work out) has still not arrived. I’ll probably be getting married in my PJ’s at this rate.

Also people who have already RSVP’d yes keep cancelling on us. We’re almost at our required minimum and may have to pay for empty seats. If this had been communicated to us in time we could’ve invited other people. We tried filling some of the spots and let a couple friends know they could bring dates. So the friend brilliantly decided to bring one of FI’s ex flings…I have never met the girl and have no intention of doing so that day, so I had to call the guy, lie through my teeth and tell him we had a mixup and actually have no room.

I also caught a cold this weekend.

So yeah, I would say s..t does hit the fan in the last few weeks.

I have offically lost my mind.  That is all.
