We still have 11 months until our wedding. The venue is booked, the guest list is pretty much settled, my dress is ordered, we are getting close on booking the photographer. But I can NOT stop worrying about the wedding. Mostly me looking fat in my dress and looking bad in the photographs. I guess weddings magnify our preexisting insecurities x1000. I’m having nightmares and feel like a rock is in the pit of my stomach all the time.
What to do? I can’t go on like this for another 11 months. HELP!

Hey date twin!
Sorry to hear you’re having nightmares. That’s horrible. 🙁 I know it’s fruitless to tell a worrier to chill out (fellow worrier here!), but maybe let your FI know how you’re feeling? Whenever I start getting stressed or crazy about some aspect of the wedding, my guy always talks me down.
Just try to take it one or two things at a time. Make a list in order of priority, and attempt to limit your worry to a max of 2 things on it at once.
Good luck, and remember that us Bees will always be here to listen!
P.S. You’ll be beautiful that day, no matter what. 🙂

@JLR1982: relax, take a step back from planning and just enjoy this time with your FH. 🙂 Everything is going to turn out lovely, and you are going to make a beautiful bride. 🙂

The only thing you can start doing is working out if you’re worried about it (and haven’t already)! And remember that it’s only one day.

I was worried when my wedding was over a year away… But when we moved up the date to 5 months away and we had to book EVERYTHING in two weeks, I felt great!
Maybe you’ll get calmer as time passes?

Thank you for the responses…I know that the important thing is that I end up married and nothing else, but I see photos of gorgeous brides and know that I won’t compare.
My FH did make a negative comment about my weight once, he apologized profusely after he said it but it sticks with me in times like these 🙁
