Hi Bees! I am about 7 weeks away from my wedding day 😀 Lately I have been stressing myself out and worrying over little things.. Like really dumb things, for example if my guests will think the bridesmaids dresses go/match well with my dress or if people will hate my wedding because of the smell from the citronella candles we will be using to hopefully keep bugs away. Then I remind myself that ALL that matters is that I am marrying my favorite person in the whole world, and that’s what it’s really all about. And then 5 minutes later I think about the candles again..
I am SO excited for my wedding, but the wedding that is happening in 7 weeks is a totally different wedding than I was envisioning the day I got engaged. It turned into something that I didn’t completely want, but I’m at a point where turning back isn’t an option. We have done what we are able to afford and while it IS NOT my dream wedding, it still is MY wedding. I’m doing by best to learn to embrace it. I also feel like I have become an anxious ball of nerves and have been trying my hardest to keep my bridezilla mask tucked away in the closet ;).
Anyone else have silimar feelings? Did you ever feel so excited to be getting married to your love but overwhelmed with all the stress and pressure and details, details, DETAILS!!!

I’m currently 7 months out and my mom has turned me into one big ball of overwhelmed stress. My solution: lots of trips to the blow dry bar and nail salon. Hahaha.

I overanalyze things ALL the time! So, I can definitely share some of your anxieties. I have realized tha over the years I spent so much time overanalyzing details that I missed out on enjoying events like birthday parties, holiday dinners, enjoying my engagement etc. When it comes down to it you have to remnd yourself that like you said you are marrying your favorite person in the world. Enjoy that and embrace it, because you can’t get that day back again. When you look back your overall happiness is what is really going to be important. Dont sweat the small stuff. Easier said than done I know, but try to enjoy these next few weeks and you big day!

engagedRN: Sorry you’re feeling this way. I’m at the same stage, getting married Sept 13. I’ve been fluctuating, there are days where I feel frustrated, I think just worn out from the planning, excited about getting married, but sick of the wedding planning. Maybe you’re going through wedding planning fatigue? The best advice I got from a recently married friend was to take a week off from planning and relax. It really helped me come back with more enthusiasm. Hope that helps.

I feel the exact same way, my wedding is in 7 weeks too! September 13th!!! I’m worried because our wedding doesn’t have a “theme” it’s all over the place… I’m sure it’s perfect normal to second guess yourself, but everyone keeps saying it will all come together 🙂
