Hi guys. I have never been married and Im 32. Im marrying a good man. I moved to Austin TX from tampa, FL where we met to be with him a week and a half ago. The wedding is tomorrow. We sped up the date instead of waiting till next year we decided to marry this year!! But i had to move from Tampa FL to Austink TX, a huge move. I love it here and have had a beautiful time so far. now the wedding is upon us and its like we are so stressed. We fought last night the first time and Im still feeling raw from that even though he was like im so sorry and we talked it through and everything.
My last minute emrgency: we are on a limited budget and he is the only one working. So we are stressed over money even though we are fine we are still stressed. My dad mailed his suit to wear to the wedding to me ( a week before which kind of in hindsight aggravates me) and the post office did not notify me !!!! So i received it yesterday. NO CLEANERS can steam clean my dads suit now !! Im so stressed. Now that ive typed it all out it doesnt seem like such a big deal but I feel like the world is ending and Im being cursed by God or somethiing (Im a Christian and I know thats not true but its how I felt for a minute). No disrespect to other faiths Im justb saying it makes you feel a feeling of doom when things go wrong this last minute. Wow I feel better typing it out. Thanks ladies for reading this 🙂

Is your FI renting a tux by chance? Perhaps you could ask very nicely if they had a few minutes to steam your dad’s suit? Either that or you’re going to have to hang it in the bathroom and take a very long hot shower….

First, calm down, I am sure everything will work out fine. You mentioned you had your first fight and you sped up the wedding date. Out of curiousity, how long have you two known each other or been together? Perhaps you are having such anxiety or stress because you are feeling things are moving too quickly or too much is happening at once (with the move and all).
Have a sit down, calm discussion with your FI and talk about how you are feeling. Communication is very important, and it will make you feel a lot better to clear the air. 🙂

- Wedding: November 2013 - St. Augustine Beach, FL
KNow anybody with a home steamer? Borrow it and then lay a towel over the suit before pressing it with an iron (you never want to place an iron directly on the fabric of a suit.)

I’m sorry you’re so stressed! Is it the wrinkles that you need to get out? For my DH I always use the steam function on our iron for his suits. I’ve also used Dryel.
Hang in there! There’s always things that go wrong. At my own wedding, I got a call from my florist telling me that she couldn’t get 2,000 garden roses because everyone was sold out. It all worked out in the end. Just know you’re not alone with things going wrong and the stress.
Take a long hot lavender bubble bath with a big glass a wine. Sometimes that can help out a lot! Sending hugs!

If you spray the heck out of it with febreeze and some water and throw it in the dryer, it will be fine.

How wrinkly is it? Try hanging it in the bathroom and steaming up the shower if it’s not too wrinkled. You could turn it inside out and iron it with a towel or use the steam on the iron and get close but don’t actually touch it while it’s hanging up.

Its really not that wrinkled. Wow thank you all for answering. Yes we do have that feeling of “maybe we’re going too fast” but thats related to the wedding ceremony. Our actual daily life is wonderful. The wedding is causing stress on top of still putting away things and still adjusting to a new life. But our lives together are wonderful. Its just the stress of the wedding and the money it costs.
We met in 2008 in Tampa. We have been friends since that time. His son was in the hosptial with cancer. I went to visit with a mutual friend so we could pray for his son. His son died the next year. We were friends that entire time. He tried to take me on a date but I was too shy and wanted to just be friends at that time. He moved to Austin in 2010 to get over losing his son. In 2011 we talked almost everyday and thats definitely when it became something more. We have officially been together 9 months so I know we are getting married fairly quickly but we do know each other. My best friend grew up with his family since elementary school so I do know him. I guess ours is just a unique story.
