Alright january ladies,
Can you believe you are about there. Things have been going smoothly, but i have just recently begun to feel the stress. I am at 19 days and counting. All of the big stuff is pretty much taken care of, but there is so much to think about. This is my last week at work (there now….oops) and I am happy to know that I will not have to balancy my thoughts between work and wedding after this Friday.
Anyone else feeling a little stress? What are you doing to cope? I am tyring to avoid the typical stress eating (that dress has got to fit). Was up at 5 this morning and on the treadmill- hoping some excercise will help relieve a little tension

You are almost there!!!!! Aww I’m so excited for you 🙂 These last few weeks are going to go by SO FAST! Try to take some time especially that week before for yourself. Whether it’s going and getting a massage or just taking a walk by yourself and getting centered again.

Me tooooooo! I’m a 1.1.11 bride and the stress is raining down on me heavy! I’m just doing lots of deep breathing and getting things organized. During my whole wedding planning (about 6 months) I haven’t had the stress of a job to worry about (I just graduated from graduate school in May), but I start a new job 3 days after we get back from the honeymoon! So that is just another stresser!
I want it to be New Year’s Eve tonight!!!!

Yes! It’s definitely sinking in! I’m a 1-11-11 bride 🙂 and 29 days is insanely close! I feel like I have so much left to do! I’ve hit panic mode more than once lol and i feel it coming again! I’m trying to tie everything together and it’s a lot harder than I really thought it would be!
Hang in there 🙂 It’s almost here 🙂

Oh I’m SO feeling the stress. I am also SO jealous you get so much time off!!! I only have Wed, Thur, Fri off the week OF THE WEDDING! Ugh. Then only Mon/Tues AFTER the wedding. Grrrr. Oh well…I shouldn’t complain 😉

I am stressing because some of my guests are still sending RSVPs and the deadline was three weeks ago. Plus, those people are trying to add everyone and their mama to their RSVP.
We now have over 530 guests coming to the wedding. It is funny because people said that holiday weddings have less guests. Thank God we booked all three ballrooms.
Other than that I am excited!

16 days now….
Keep breathinig ladies-this is the BEST TIME in OUR LIVES!
Happy Holidays to all, thanks for chiming in there on this one. Although I am sure none of us like to stress, it is comforting somehow to know that you are not alone
Grandma flies in tomorrow and the ball begins to roll faster!
