I’m feeling a little anxious.

We’re missing about 10 RSVPs though so not too bad!!

I just feel like there’s a lot to get done when really it isn’t so bad. But it’s so soon! I do worry I’m forgetting something or that I will forget something!

I thought I was in great shape and then had to have last min hand surgery yesterday – so I only have use of one hand for two weeks – but at least its my left hand. 

I have two larger projects to finigh and then smaller details.

Also waiting on 30/104 rsvps. Katherine

Crazyyyy! It’s almost one month! I have a list of things to finish this week since I’m on spring break. Thankfully we started calling people a little before the rsvp deadline so we’re only waiting on a couple people and I don’t think they’ll come. I also had a nightmare recently! It was the day before the wedding and I didn’t get my guestbook done. It’s one of the things on my to-do list =D

Horror story: I ordered my invitations like 2 months ago from etsy. I’d been trying to get a hold of that person for the past 3 weeks & I’d heard NOTHING!  So today I went to a local place and had to order invitations again. I’m so thankful that I will have them by Friday,  which is amazing. They obviously aren’t exactly what I wanted but beggars can’t be choosers.

Also,  my $400 custom veil is so messed up. It’s a cathedral length bubble veil made out of horsehair,  but the bubble that is supposed to be around the head is actually down by my back??!!! I’m going tomorrow to take it back and see wtf is going on.

Other than that I’m getting really excited!  I just need to work out & tan!

I’m May 18th, and I am starting to get extremely stressed out. I have been having issues sleeping. I’ve been up since 3:30 this morning with all the tiny details buzzing around my head like a swarm of bees. 

My nerves started going downhill after one of the later caterer meetings, in which everything seems so planned out down to the 5 minute increment. I really feel like this is just a circus or a performane – just “insert bride and groom here” and our wedding will be in no way what I so wished would be – a fun party with family and friends that I actually get to talk to and celebrate with (aside from the whole marrying my best friend thing!). 

Everything is DIY, and I’m a perfectionist, so I’m trying to overcome that overwhelming feeling of nothing will look right or make sense to anyone. 

AND to make matters so much worse, I am SUCH a stress eater and my plans to be extra beautiful on my wedding day have gone out the window, and I’m gaining weight because I am so incredibly stressed out. 

I am a freelancer also, and I have a million deadlines right before the wedding. And the icing on the cake, my fiances parents are staying in our tiny 700 suare foot house for the week before and after the wedding 🙂

 

I just imagine myself walking down the aisle, black circles under my eyes, disgusting hair, and hulking out of my dress. Is it too late to postpone? (just kidding…)

30 days left ladies! Please tell me i’m not the only one getting anxious. So many little things left to do. I have come to really dislike the question “are you excited?”, and anything related to what i have and haven’t done, it just makes me feel like there is SO much I haven’t done. We’re so close to the finish line though.

Very anxious! Decided today we should have a videographer (after reading another thread here about things brides regret or would change) and also that I need to get back to PA from VA to try on my dress again “just to be safe.” Less than a month! Good luck ladies. 🙂

I’m getting excited and nervous! I’m still waiting to get some people’s RSVPs. We currently have 66 “yes” and 11 “no” which I think is pretty good.

My final exams are coming up really soon so I am focusing on that. I graduate on May 1st. Then I can really focus on the wedding and the honeymoon!
