So I just have to let out a little. I looked at my calendar and realized that it’s 2 months away till my big day! Things are coming in….invites, dress almost here, final favours to be purchased, hair trialin a few weeks, make up trial ina few weeks, cake tasting coming up, marriage counseling, furnishing the new apt, arguments with mother, reviewing guest list………..
phew……how do some women do this more than once…. And I’m finding it so hard to relinquish control. Trusting the decorator….freaking me out. So many “what ifs” on making the most cost effective choices……. My checklist just doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. I don’t feel like I’ve made progress within the last month…..ok Calm down girl.
Anyone else feels as unsettled as I do? Can’t wait for the school yr to end to allow me the time to do stuff. Thiswait for weekend just cuts my weeks down by a lot.

- Wedding: October 2014 - Bartram's Garden
All i can say is, hang in there! I’m just over 100 days away from my wedding, and I have shared this feeling for about a month or so now. All the helpful advice I’ve received from friends and family is to try not to focus too much on the check list, but go with the flow and ask for help when needed. I still feel quite overwhelemed, but I’ve found that careful organization in advance coupled with a “keep calm” attitude helps a LOT!
Best of luck! 🙂

107 days left for me! I feel the same! I feel so unplanned! agh! I still don’t even have the dress ordered or flowers picked out, anything but the venue really. It’ll all workout and come together at the end is what I’m reminding myself! At the end of the day, It’s about your and the grooms love for each other that really matters. I get in the mode where I want to have things just how I imagine and get into impress mode. I’m reminding myself that people shouldnt be there for all of that in the first place and if they are then they can kiss your butt. It’s about you guys! Best of Luck! Make yourself okay with things not going as planned, that way you wont be dissapinted if anything doesn’t go exactly how you imagined. Live in the moment of being ENGAGED! Enjoy it!

I feel the same as you! I’m getting married on July 26th and I feel like I have so much to do, too. When I was teaching, it took up my whole life so everything wedding-related basically got put on the back burner. The school year just ended on Friday so now it’s panic time!

My wedding is in 2 weeks and I’ve been really stressed. People keep saying I’m organized but I’m still worried. I’ve just been telling myself that all I can do is do my best to prepare and trust. It’s not going to be perfect no matter what. With an event like this something is bound to go wrong. I’m telling myself I can handle it and I can. These feelings are normal.

32 days left for me and I am really wishing I had the next couple of weeks off work so I can get everything organised. I feel like I have been completely obsessed with it lately, but it’s because every single thing about our reception is DIY… aka the bride does/makes everything. From hiring forks to piecing together the centrepieces to decorating the cake. It’s all up to me. I wonder if they have ‘bridal leave’ at work? hahaha…
Good luck with all of your plans, girls!
