I will be a Mrs. in 73 days! Gah! The jitters are starting to set in. I am completely overwhelmed with everything that still needs to be done. I am second guessing decisions I’ve already made and comparing my wedding to others. I am driving. Myself. Crazy. Is anyone else going through this? Please tell me I’m not the only one. I went to the post office and was sold the “Yes I Do” stamps instead of the wedding cake stamp and I literally broke down and started to tear up in the post office when they told me that they couldn’t take them back to exchange them. Stamp sales are final. Bees, I cried over stamps! I swore I would never be a crazy person when it came to the wedding. I obviously lied. Any other crazy brides?

Yes, it gets worse, unfortunately. I think you’re in the “I have a few ‘busy work’ things to do but I have more mental free time to pick over everything I’ve already decided on” phase.
I did this a few weeks ago but eventually pulled myself together and said that I will move forward with marrying my wonderful man and my decisions are all the right decisions.
Now I’m in the “IS EVERYONE AROUND ME CRAZY?!?!” phase and I cry frequently…alone. I try to contain my crazy to WB because I find that no one outside of this place understands me. Just keep it together… 73 more days and it will all be over.

Oh yes, it is normal, unfortunately. My fiance told me “you’re doing this to yourself” and he is right, unfortunately.

I seriously felt like I wanted to strangle anyone who talked to me today because I’m SO sick of planning this wedding and almost had a breakdown at work because I was feeling so overwhelmed. We have 52 days left and it could not get here faster. Sooo over all of it! You’re not alone!!

Soooo in the same boat. The wedding is making me crazy! I just want someone to talk to me about something other than the wedding. What ever happened to intelligent conversation?!

Everything is going well with the wedding planning.
So naturally, I’m not sure I like my dress anymore. It’s so different, and I’m worried about the fit. There is no budget to replace it and I don’t really like shopping anyway.

The only thing that is making me crazy is getting the things done that I have no control over. 🙂

I was just about to post something with the same sentiments. So.Over.It. :-/ After all the time, money, effort, stress, and headaches, this wedding had better be the best damn affair anyone has ever seen!!!

Just now reading this thread. You guys are hilarious!! I feel like I’m feeling the opposite than the majority. I had my overwhelmed/freak out moments earlier in the planning! I stressed out over the big things and am LOVING the small details part of the planning that are left.
I’m one of the firsts in my groups of friends getting married; I NEVER thought there would be so much stress, so much time, so much money, so many decisions and expectations involved! Don’t they aways make it seem so dreamy and exciting in the movies?! It is, of course, but yes there are also stressful times. I’m glad my overwhelming feeling is behind me, hopefully it stays that way!

FI has gone from “I don’t want a foofy wedding and that sounds foofy” to “I don’t want/I don’t like” to “Are we having a traditional wedding?” to now “I think you’re worrying too much about the wedding.” Ack.
At least he’s happy with his suit and decided, in the end after weeks, that he did like the tie I picked out to match our colors.
Still not sure I like my dress. I think it’s mostly because I’m saying “eff it” too much when faced with good food choices I should turn down.

Whew…I am so glad there are others feeling the same way. I’ve been driving myself nuts to the point sleep is a major problem. I was ok with all the “big ticket items” but there are SO MANY little things…yikes!
