I know it must be hard but try not to think about it. Try to focus on yourself and do things that you truly make you happy. Try going to the spa for a massage or go to the gym and let all of your stress out on a punching bag.

I am right with you! I’m May 21…right now I’m sitting at my laptop scared to start listing out my itinerary for the rehearsal dinner and the wedding day. I plan to go for a run to let the nervous energy out…and I just indulged in a delicious smoothie that made me feel better too! I agree though, just take some time to set everything wedding-related aside and you’ll feel more energized to tackle it!

 I wish I had suggestions but I’m a ball of stress over here! My poor FI is just trying to deal with my crazy emotional breakdowns and mood swings!

Not sure if this will help you but I do some event planning for work and never get stressed over planning parties and events professionally so I’m trying to think of our wedding as just another event.  My organizational skills kick in and the stress goes away. 

I think when we planned the wedding for the end of May I forgot how hectic our lives are this time of the year so on top of wedding stress I have end of ths school year craziness for my daughter, he has finals, and we all have obligations that have to be taken care of regardless of how busy we are with wedding stuff. 

But this is our one and only time to experience all this so take a deep breath and enjoy it all!!!

I say try not to think about how many days are left!  I don’t bother to count or look at even our wedding website as it has a counter to our wedding date!

like previous posters said, take time for yourself.  i plan on going for a massage hopefully next week before the big day!

Also, my Fiancee has been really helpful.  he’s taken on alot of the left over stuff for me and my DIY projects.

I have engrossed my self in work related stuff.  My anxiety stems from the amount of showers that I have planned this week.  I have my work shower tomorrow, followed by happy hour bachelorette party with co-workers.  Then, to top it off, on Saturday is my bridal shower thrown by my family. I am so overwhelmed at times that I can’t breathe.  I have been doing deep breathing exercises, but they are not working.  My friend encouraged me to go to the gym, or for a really long walk after work each night to clear my mind of all things wedding so that I can at least enjoy the actual day.  Hopefully, everything will be fine.  I like the massage idea though.

Augh, I’m between jobs (set purposefully so I would ahve time off before/during/after the wedding) and  I’ve been stuck at home alone all day for weeks. I just mope around lonely and unmotivated. I’m super excited (not really nervous), but I just can’t get anything done by myself! I can’t wait until when bridesmaids and other guests start coming into town next week.

@ melodicsighs1 That’s exactly what’s been going on here at my end. Stuck at home, wanting to get things done, but can’t!
