- Wedding: August 2010
only 25 days to go and I still dont have everything done. I am starting to believe that the stress of this wedding has actually made my face break out. I just ordered the cake yesterday and im getting worried about the caterer we picked/she’s not calling us back ugg. this is crunch time and Im feeling overwelmed. am I going to really be able to entertain all of these out of state guests. most of them im meeting for the first time…like my fiance’s dad. My fiance and i have been together six years and ive only met two people in his family (they all live so far away). Can I hold it together when meeting all of them at once. will they like what they see….am i going to say and do the wrong things. are they going to be comfortable at our wedding…is the food going to turn out…is there going to be enough food for everyone. is my house going to be clean enough/good enough… he has a rich snoby family and we live a simple life in a house that is underconstruction. Literally we have redone almost the entire thing…. omg im so overwelmed and brian isnt interested in helping he is focused on the last of the construction so our house will be presentable. On the plus side my best friend came into town early to help and we finished most of the decorations. they turned out really nice, even im empressed with the work she and i did. On the bad side of that is ive had to entertain my friend and her 3 kids. she doesnt have any money so every thing we do i pay for so finacilly she is making it harder and more stressful when she allows her kids to stay up all night Literally until 4 am every night. Her kids go to bed when i have to be up for work. My kids always want to stay up with her kids too, and i stay up way too late because at night is when she wants to work on the wedding stuff and im not going to just leave and say well good luck. I almost think she is kind of making this last bit of crunch time harder on me. Here i am no sleep/entertaining her and her kids/ working 45 hours a week/ cleaning/planning/ im about to loose my mind!! I dont want to tell my friend that we need to focus more on #1 me getting more sleep and #2 focusing more on the wedding stuff. i dont want to tell her that we cant be always out and about entertaining the kids because i have things for the wedding i have to do. Yes she has been a great help on so far all the decorations but i feel there is going to be a blow out mainly because of loss of sleep. what would you do?
How is everyone else coping and what are you doing to make things seem a little less stressful?
