A bottle of wine and large piece of chocolate cake.

That’s my advice.

It will make you feel better…

Seriously, it will.  When things get overwhelming, doing something that you know is completely self-indulgent helps.

I don’t blame you for being overwhelmed! Can FH clean or help with the wedding stuff?

You need to do something for you, to relax! And you need to tell FI he needs to help more, and not to invite people without discussing it with you first. Sure, you probably would have offerEd, but you could have negotiated with him re cleaning the house. 

Most of all, it’s all going to be okay. You’re doing the right thing to vent here instead of letting it pile up. I’d take a bubble bath, read a good book, and listen to soothing music. Hugs!

First, you’re not a bridezilla.  You’re human and have a lot of stressful things going on beyond a wedding.  It’s okay to feel overwhelmed and want the focus on you.  It’s one of the most special times in your life.

I say cry and let it out.  Even if you need a few minutes by yourself to get it out.  It will make you feel better.  I’ve done the same thing a few times during the past few months.  Wouldn’t it be nice if ‘real’ life stopped when started planning a wedding.


Next, take a deep breath and take things one day at a time.  Get through the weekend and vent to someone, your FI, a close friend, someone. 

It will be okay, I promise.  Hang in there!


p.s.  My parents are moving right now, too.  It’s hard to plan wedding things when all my mom cares about is decorating her new kitchen.  Gah!!!

My parents moved to Florida 3 months before our wedding date, even though they knew I wanted to use their back yard and out building for our wedding.. They moved anyway, now I am not even sure if they will make it back for the wedding, they are having trouble finding jobs and such… (they moved from Iowa to Florida) I don’t know why the hurry and why they couldn’t wait 3 more months…. Plus ever since I got engaged all my mom was worried about ws their move, I practically had to beg her to come see my dress the day I bought it, she was always too busy to help with anything wedding wise.

So I can understand where you are coming from.

The stress will get better and before you know it, you will be married, and everything will work out!

I know a lot of people are moving, but maybe could your MOH offer to take in the house guests? I am MOH at a wedding in August and I am hosting one of the BM’s and her boyfriend for a week before the wedding.

You know her though, so you would know if that is something you can ask.

My advice is to take a big breath and carry on. You probably think your place is a lot messier than anyone else would ever notice. Plus, they would COMPLETELY understand DIY projects being around. Maybe they might offer to help?

When everything is said and done you will be incredible proud of how much you were able to handle all at the same time. It will come together.
