OMG! Why does it seem like new drama pops up every day and I am crying about something… our wedding is in 15 days and I swear every day something happens and I end up in tears! Random crap too… made a mistake at work, I cried. Almost had a groomsman and flower girl drop out of the wedding, I cried… and today our dog bit another dog at doggie day camp and we have to pay the vet bill for the other dog, I cried… let me add our dog is the nicest dog…we have a cat too and she has never once growled at the cat or even looked at her sideways.
Anyone else a nervous wreck and crying all the time????

You’re probably just stressed. Why not try running yourself a bath, finding a good book and drinking some wine. Don’t worry, the stress will be over soon. Ü

I hear you…I was like that a couple weeks ago. Do you have a lot going on? I was freaking out about everything (incl. getting married). A lot had to do with not getting enough sleep (I’m also quitting my job then moving after the honeymoon, so way too much to do). Maybe it’ll happen again when things get closer.
I agree with Miss Melissa. Give yourself a chance to relax…you sound like you need it:)

I hope things get better soon!!
Random thought on your dog: pets can sometimes pick up on your mood. If you’re stressed and emotional, it can cause emotional problems and weird behavior in your pets!

I was going to say thing about dogs and ambient energy. It sounds like you need to take 2 hours with a good friend and go get a mani or a pedi.
A little mini-mental vacation is just what the doctor is prescribing right now!
In the end, we’re all a little behind on what needs to get done, but the things that don’t get done will never be noticed… so don’t sweat it. You’re getting married to the love of your life and that is all that ultimately matters.
I know how you feel though (as your date twin), it’s all coming quick!

Yep. In the 3 weeks leading up to the wedding I cried at least every couple of days, just from sheer stress. Totally normal, I think.

Wedding stress is like no other stress on earth. You have endless details to keep track of, people and personalities to manage, endless lists of to-do chores, and still have your normal everyday life and work responsibilities. Ummm, can you say STRESS???
My advice is to first, let the crying just be crying. Don’t label it as good or bad, it’s just a release valve. Let go of that need to be strong and perfect and just take a few long deep breaths. Close your eyes and visualize everything in your future exactly the way you want it to be. See your wedding day unfolding with you a joyful and radiant bride. Everything will work out exactly right. See your new husband staring lovingly into your eyes. Look around and see yourself surrounded by family and friends who love you and want only the best for you. Visulalize yourself waking up the day after your wedding and knowing that you’ve got a wonderful life ahead of you, filled with the adventure of everyday living. Embrace it and then let the vision softly float away. Great things will come your way, just open yourself up to the potential and it will come.
We all have stress and it’s unlikely to ever totally just disappear, but we have the ability to change our attitudes and reactions towards stress every minute of the day, one breath at a time.
Sending hugs your way too!

Thanks everyone….the people at Petsmart told us that this dog was probably picking on our dog and she bit the dog in response to that…. I still feel like we are bad doggie parents…. A $360 vet bill (to pay for the other dog’s vet services) is so not what we need two weeks before the wedding.
I do admit that I am not allowing myself the stress relief and sleep that is needed and deserved… My BM are not exactly calling my phone to offerring to help so the brunt of the duties are on my shoulders… one piece of good news, my sister gets in town on Wednesday…
Thanks again! I love the support on this site.

Well my mom told me take one day and do not talk about the wedding and do not have any planning that day. As hard as that was, it was an amazing feeling. I got away for the day. Have a day where you and your FI go somewhere new to eat and not mention the wedding or planning. it will help you regroup and get back on track.
