    It really hit right at our RSVP deadline (three weeks before our wedding) because I realized how many people didn’t actually RSVP. At that point we needed to call/email a ton of people and make the place cards. 

    I think if we hadn’t put off some of the other details (such as buying the wedding party gifts) I wouldn’t have gotten so stressed. 

    I stressed so much about how the place cards looked as well as the favors. In hindsight I wish we had not done favors (even though they were chocolates a lot of them got left behind) and I would have done simple place cards. Maybe not strange things to worry about but they definitely didn’t need to be as fancy as ours were because I realized afterwards that nobody really cared about the place cards or favors.

    I never got that stressed out.  I got upset that some people were RSVPing the week before the wedding, but it never caused me that much stress… I was told the day of my wedding that I was the calmest bride anyone had ever seen 🙂  However, I can totally see how many people would get stressed, I just had a great coordinator at my venue 🙂

    It hit about 3 months before the wedding. I was working on a huge, very sensitive project at work and my Grandfather (whom I helped care for) suffered a heart attack and got a terminal cancer diagnosis a week later, and I was stressed over getting the diy projects done…. basically I was a ticking timebomb of emotion. Not pretty.

    I stressed most over the seating chart. Having the right mix of people around the table was essential to the success of the evening. But yeah, we had at least 5 versions of that thing. ugh

    It’s hitting right now, I think. It’s other people. Not the wedding or planning, but other people and the shit that they bring:

    – FI’s stepmom needs her hand held and walked through every single thing and I don’t have time for that. I’ve told her a million times to TEXT or EMAIL me when I’m at work because I cannot answer my phone, but she still insists on calling me at least once instead.

    – Six weeks to the wedding, she wanted to add people to the guestlist, and proceeded to call me and FI and guilt trip me, while saying that she wasn’t trying to pressure us.

    – We met their pastor at a graduation party and he immediately singled me out and gave me the 3rd degree on the wedding, and was SO RUDE when I told him that we weren’t getting married in a church and that our officiants are a local couple who are not associated with a church. I HAVE NEVER MET YOU BEFORE YOU CAN CUT THE ATTITUDE, MAN OF GOD.

    – FI’s SIL posted on my Facebook wall, asking if we could invite her family. No, bitch! I didn’t even want to invite her.

    – FI has been asking me some really stupid questions lately, and it’s been really irritating. We were at the dollar store grabbing some things for the reception (literally, stuff we already had and needed more of) and he kept asking me, “What’s that for?” and “Why do you need that?” I nearly bit his head off.
