First breath and take a minute to clear your head. Wedding planning is very stressful then you throw dramatic family on to the mix it doesn’t help. I would just ignore her she sounds really imature, the fact she didn’t tell you she couldn’t come in person is sad but she is acting like that not cool.

The thing you should focus on is your self and you FI, the day is about you two. Sorry that it is stressing you out so much.

I just want you to know that you aren’t alone. My mom stressed me out so much before our wedding that I lost 15 pounds from being so stressed out.

Do you have something that naturally relaxes you? For me, it’s running…so anytime I got stressed, I tried to go out for a run to clear my head. Yoga also helped…lots of deep breathing and focusing on yourself. 

Just try to keep in mind that the big picture is about marrying your FI. That always seemed to help me put things back in perspective and trudge forward!

I totally know how you feel…I get stressed easily and when I first got engaged finding a venue and money issues stressed me out so much (and my wedding isn’t for another year and a half) that I got the same stomach aches and couldn’t eat ect. Two things helped me

1) talking it out with my FI even if it doesn’t resolve anything, he would ask me to list all the things that were stressing me out and we would talk about it, it helped even when we couldnt come to a completely solution. He also reminded me as the previous posts said said that as long as were married we would be happy which is so true…thats what I remind myself every time I am stressed…”at the end of the day we will be together and that is the important part”

2) FI gave me a back massages I know that it sounds stupid but it did get rid of some of the stress and headaches…my stress is often carried in the upper back, neck and shoulders and that can sometimes cause headaches.

Hang in there! And go do something that is completely unwedding related, a movie night with the girls or a date with the FI. Laughing I hope this helps!

Deep breath.  In through the nose, out through the mouth.

 

Planning an event of this scale that includes not only a large group of people, travel, forever marriage vows and the logistics of all of this is insanely stressful.  You are certainly not alone in that, take one look at the emotional boards.

But.  You have to try to pick your batttles, me thinks.  Instead of letting everything get to you, pick the things that really make a difference.

I hope things settle for you and that you can actually not only enjoy your wedding but also the JOURNEY TO GET THERE! It should be fun!
