Hi bees! How are you all handling the stress? I have less than 2 months to our wedding and I feel like I’m completely losing my mind.
I’m so stressed out over everything wedding related Here are some hightlights: how the heck are we going to get our marriage license when my FI will be out of town working until 2 weeks before our wedding? How the heck are we going to pay for this huge wedding? How the heck am I going to lose another 11 pounds to I look ultra fab/skinny in my stupid dress? On top of that all my Fi has been gone since Thanksgiving (he actually left Thanksgiving day). He is coming home on Sunday for 10 days for the holidays. Once he goes back I won’t see him until the beginning of February.
The only way I know how to manage stress is to work out. Right now I walk an hour a day, plus I workout at least another hour at the gym. I don’t think working out more will help. What else can I do???

@coolbride125: Don’t worry!
marriage license: Do you have to get it more than 2 weeks before the wedding? We got ours just a couple days before. It took maybe 30 minutes. We both waited in line first thing in the a.m., signed the thing, and went to work. Research what the requirements are in your area, but I don’t think you need a lot of time…
paying: well, I don’t know what to tell you there except that there’s still time to cut back on stuff. Don’t go into debt over the wedding. It’s not worth it.
losing 11 pounds: forget about it and accept yourself as you are right now — which is how your FI loves you, right?
FI’s travels: bummer. 🙁 But the time will fly. You’ll get him for 10 days now, and then January will go really quickly.
Just take a deep breath and think about what’s important: marrying your FI. Not the dress, not the decorations, not anything. Just getting married.

You’ve got to let it all go. I know your mind is going a million miles per hour in ten different directions but you have to find a way to relax. Best thing I ever did, about a month before the wedding I just stopped. I stopped thinking about it and worrying about all the details. Every now and then I would get the urge to craft or make something so I would but I only did it when I was in the mood for it.
Find something to do that will help take your mind off of the wedding. Read a book, bake, do a puzzle. Do non wedding related things.
