Is anyone else miserable in the final couple of weeks? Our wedding is in two weeks and a day and I could not be more miserable or feel worse about myself! I know it’s the stress of how much I still need to get done plus the pressure I’m putting on myself that it will all turn out “perfect,” but I feel like there’s something wrong with me that I just want to get this over with already!
Anyway else feeling overwhelmed and over it? Or just ready to be able to relax, eat normally (as in macadamia nut clusters without guilt the next day), and not worry so much about perfection? I feel like a freak!

First of all, take a deeeeeeeep breath. Drop your shoulders down. Okay. Now. I’m really stressed out too. I want everything to be perfect too. BUT I also realize stuff is going to go wrong, but you know what, I’m the only one who’s going to know. No one else is going to know if we forget to put the menus out or if the florist had to substitute dahlias for roses… I’m with you, I’ve been planning for so long I’m ready for this to be over with. I’m trying to work through the to-do list that’s left and just check things off one at a time. Eat macadamia nut clusters, just don’t eat three boxes of them okay? And just remember, at the end of this all you’ll be married to the man you love. That’s all that matters. You, him, the officiant. Everything else is frills.

Don’t worry…you’re getting really close to your wedding, which probably took you forever to plan. Of course you’re freaking out. Wouldn’t you be nervous if you had a job interview that you’d been trying to get for a really long time? My advice would be to remember that all the stressful stuff will be done the day of the wedding, not the day after. The day of, you will be able to eat whatever you want (as much as your dress allows, anyway). Plus, no one should bother you with vendor concerns, etc. Just make sure to designate a go-to person that the vendors can see about questions/issues. Then tell the vendors excatly who that person is. Communicate this information BEFORE the wedding day. That way, if there’s a minor hitch, it will be taken care of without you even having to know/think about it. If a guest bothers you with some detail or problem on your day, don’t even give it a second thought. Just kindly refer the guest to your go-to and go back to being the bride!
Only two weeks to go…just keep thinking of how awesome your wedding day is going to be!
