Really overwhelmed

@sunflwr02:  I was feeling that way earlier in the year. Work, personal, family, health issues–I had it all from February until the end of July.


For me, I really had no choice but to focus on the important stuff first, and let the wedding planning take a back seat. I planned 90% of my wedding in 8 weeks, but I had no family pressures or expectations to deal with either (other than it happen). We paid for it ourself (with some help from my mom), and we did what we wanted.


On one hand, I wanted to postpone it back in February. On the other, the small time frame may have created some extra stress and work, but it allowed me to not worry about a bunch of stupid details that no one notices anyway.  And I’m not sure if there would ever be a perfect time to plan a wedding (though any time would have been better than our spring and early summer).


By the time Friday rolled around, I had a very “f*** it” attitude: what’s done is done, and what isn’t done, no one but us would know anyway. Bring on the party.


If you really can’t remove yourself from the pressure from everything else, maybe you might want to consider postponing it until circumstances are a bit more favourable.
