Has anyone experienced wedding day stress? The kind that eats up all of your energy and makes you not want to do much except mind numbing activies that help you escape? I’m at a place where I’m about 50 days out and I’m so stressed and overwhelmed that, outside of work, all I do is watch my korean dramas that I love. I write books, but haven’t had the energy to be creative in that way in months!

tprevost: i was stressed out in a way that I metnally didn’t know it LoL but physically I was feeling it. I actually ended up getting a monster cold 2 weeks before the wedding. And anyone that knows me, knows that when I get a cold it lingers. So I went to the doctor and I told him you need to get me better! I can’t be hacking up a lung walking down the aisle because thats not pretty! <br />He laughed at me lol
I got better, but then my nerves got to me the night before, my stomach was so upset. I got better when I started to walk down the aisle and saw my (now) DH.
Easier said than done-but relax-enjoy your time as it is now because your day will be here and over in a flash!
I can honestly say I enjoyed every second of our wedding. It was amazing and we danced all night!

Thanks, @Daizy914. I’ve been feeling so out of it lately and wanted to know that I wasn’t the only one =).

You are not alone! I started eating chocolate constantly and lying around the house, neglecting my wedding planning (as you seem to be doing). I gained weight and my dress didn’t fit anymore! My mom made me tell my fiance, and he threw out all our chocolate and made me ultra healthy meals. Then they both told me to get my butt on the treadmill. Tell your fiance how you feel. He knows you best and will know how to get you out of your rut.
My mom also told me that she broke out in hives the day before her wedding. Weddings are stressful.

You are not alone! I’m 23 days out and the stress is affecting me in all aspects of my life. I wish it wasn’t but I don’t even feel myself at work as I’m constantly thinking of things that need to be done. It doesn’t help that we moved a month and a half prior to the wedding date AND decided to undergo renovations on our new home which are still ongoing (we have no kitchen).
A lot of stress has come from the fact that FI hasn’t been very involved and when he has, he has seemed to make things harder than they need to be. I know he wants everything to be wonderful but striving for PERFECTION is not reasonable. He also WANTS to be involved but only at the point of decision-making, and finds flaws in what I propose without having constructive alternatives. I don’t think it needs to be this hard…
I’m planning on having a heart-to-heart with him about it tonight… I hope that helps!
