I’m just over 5 weeks out from my wedding and I’m starting to worry… that I’m not worried!
I read about other brides who are having meltdowns over wedding planning, etc, but I’m not, and it’s making me think I’ve forgotten things or that maybe my wedding will just be crap because I’m not putting enough effort in!
Does anyone else feel like this?
Another part of me just thinks that maybe I’ve been pretty organised, and am used to being busy all the time (due to my work) so I’m not feeling the stress like some other brides?
Here’s what I have left to do:
– Make dinner music playlist (for before the DJ shows up)
– Design and print year book (little picture book of me and FH)
– Buy headband for flower girl
– Finalise timetables, photo list and MC runsheet
– Design and print menus, seating chart, name cards, programs
– Finalise seating chart (some tables already sorted)
Should I be freaking out? Have I forgotten major things? (I know you can’t really answer that, but if there are things that marrieds forgot, would love to hear them!)

I did a lot of planning upfront and am also very organized, but I will say, around 4 weeks, it was like a switch flipped and I got really anxious. It comes in waves now. It’s not because things aren’t done – most things have been done for months! – it’s just because it’s all coming together now in just a few weeks. Glad you’re not feeling stressed and hope you stay that way!

Thanks – good to know whats to come. Yeah four weeks seems a bit daunting, I better get onto my to-do lists!

I think it’s normal…I was totally 100% calm until about an hour before, haha.

I was the same way – so if you consider me normal (questionable) then sure! 😉 I didn’t start to freak out at all until about 1 day before…when we were trying to set up the Rehearsal Dinner and the venue person was LATE. The next day, I wasn’t nervous until about an hour before I was supposed to see Darling Husband for our First Look. Then, after the First Look we were golden! We were both super calm and it was great. 🙂

I’m the day after you and I’m cool as a cucumber. That also worries me a bit, haha. Like yourself, I keep thinking am I forgetting something? Is my wedding too simple? Why am I not freaking out like so many other brides? I have a feeling that when it hits me it’ll hit HARD. But for now just enjoy the serenity 🙂

I think it’s awesome that you aren’t freaking out. I am not freaking out but I do sfeel that rush of emotions about all I have left to do. It comes in waves though.
