    I feel like everything I still need to do will get done in time, so I’m not super-stressed. I’m off to the gym tonight to let off some steam – gym and long baths will save me!

    I’m not too stressed out really, not as bad as I thought I would be at this stage…but I’m being plagued by the feeling that I’ve forgotten to do something….It’s driving me crazy!

    I’m wavering between being really excited and giddy that it’s so close and being a bit stressed that something huge will go wrong at the last minute that will stop us from getting married. I seem to be on a bit of a short fuse though, and I’m finding it hard to concentrate in work!

    Ask me how I’mfeeling in a week and I might be a bit more stressed though!! Laughing

    I’m getting married Memorial Day weekend of next year.  I’ve been stalking the May 2012 boards like crazy to see how you’re all doing and living vicariously through you all!  I feel like I can live my day a year early through all of you!

    Best of luck ladies!  Your weekend is almost here!

    @kay01:  my engagement has been about 7 months.. no wedding planner.. My mom and I have been doing everything. I just keep thinking this:

    It is ONE day.. yes this is a VERY special day and one I will always remember.. but in the end.. I am marrying my best friend… my love.. and the one person I could never live without. Everything else is just details.. 😀

    I’m just now starting to stress *a little.*  My fiance is out of town this week, then we leave for wedding weekend next Thurs.  In that time I have to pack up the rest of my apartment, do a bunch of laundry so I can put stuff away, take care of the dog all week, plant some flowers, make labels for favor boxes, and make a seating chart (multiple parts). 

    Moving actually stresses me the most.  I HATE moving and I’m over there alone in my crappy apartment packing everything up and cleaning.  I told him I’d try my best to get everything packed up so we could just move all the big stuff this weekend and be done. We already moved a lot, but there’s a lot more… I lived there for 8 years!

    Oh yeah, if I want programs at my wedding I need to do that, too, but my SIL hasn’t picked a reading yet.

    @kay01:  Our wedding’s 3 hours away, so I understand that worry about whether you’ll remember everything.  I’ve been working on a list of things to bring.  FI’s working on his own list too, he’s worried I’ll forget something, lol. 

    I’m a tiny bit stressed, but most everything I can do right now is done.  I do have to make up a new escort card for my Future Brother-In-Law because he and his partner broke up.  But other than that, nothing I can do except start to pack.  I’m a little bit nervous for the weather too, since our ceremony’s outside.  I was totally excited to check the 10 day forecast today, until I realized that even though the wedding’s 10 day away, it’s too early to be in the forecast >:(.

    I think I’ll be a little bit anxious on Saturday (day before the wedding) because I’ve been slowly leaving things at my parents’ house and everything will need to packed up in our car to go up to the venue before the rehearsal.  And I’m kind of on my own, since Fiance will be showing around our photographer who’s from Boston, like us.

    IDK about anyone else, but I’ve been engaged for almost 15 months and can’t believe it’s 10 days away :-O.

    @Future MrsB:  I know exactly what you mean!  We’ve been engaged for what seems like forever, (19 months!) but it still seems surprising it’s here.  It’s exciting but I’m also ready to have this giant project off my plate!  Cannot wait to see what the day holds though.

    I’m freaking out! There was an empoyee strike at our college which moved our school calender 3 days. Meaning now Mr.Boa has 2 final exams the day before our wedding. Somehow between studying for the 2 finals I have next weeks I have the time to finish all the wedding stuff and to pack for our 18 day honeymoon (we leave from the wedding). Stressed does not even begin to describe how I feel.

    @boaconstrictor:  That sucks about the finals!  That honeymoon sounds like just what you need though.  Hang in there!
