  • Wedding: June 2014

Just take a deep breath, it’ll be okay! I’m getting married June 7th, the only problem I had was that our guest list was 400 people and the venue only holds 300! Thankfully yesterday we worked on the guest list with our families and got it down to 300 with a 50 person B list. My dads suppose to be getting stamps so I can mail out the invites soon (although mom thinks it’s too early) so we can send out the B list invites if we get enough no’s. It’s been difficult planning from far away but hasn’t been terribly bad. 

I wouldn’t worry about wearing the same shoes as your bridesmaid, no one will notice. And the weight is probably just you losing fat and gaining muscle which weighs more. Don’t stress yourself out, it’s just one day!

First, that is a hell of a lot of bullshit and no wonder you are stressed!

But please don’t stress about your lack of weight loss! Don’t just look at the scale. If you have been eating healthier and working out 6-7 days a week, I promise it shows on your body, if not in pounds. You likely have better posture, a more active, youthful aura, and your muscles and body are likely much tighter overall. And that definitely shows!

It’s easy for wedding planning to get super stressful. Everybody has RSVPs o track down. My dad pitched a fit that I was considering not having a processional. My grandmother was conviced I would burn down the negiborhood if I had candles on the tables. And it hailed at the rehearsal for my outdoor ceremony/reception – in August. 

My advice is to prioritize and focus. Think about what’s really important to you and focus on that. The rest is just details. Be nice but firm. Take moments to enjoy yourself along the way – you never get this time back.

In the end it will work out. I had resigned myself to no sleep the night before the wedding because I had a bunch of DIY left to finish. So I just went to my Welcome Dinner and had a fabulous time wiith all our friends and family and when I went back up to the suite I found a dozen of our friends and family with origami, need/thread, hot glue guns and napkins. We knocked it all out in a couple hours over laughs and champagne and it was awesome!
