I have less than 4 weeks before the wedding and I find myself feeling overwhelmed. NOT with the wedding planning – that is going surpisingly smooth. But, overwhelmed with what is about to happen in my life: Marriage. Moving in together. Going on a Honeymoon. Moving half way across the country. Leaving my stable job. Accepting the fact that I don’t have a job lined up yet. Searching for a new job. Moving AGAIN 2 weeks after the honeymoon.
Though, I’m trying my hardest to appear cool, calm and collected. But if something isn’t 100% perfect with the wedding, I get in a tizzy – and then I get scared people think I’m freaking out about wedding planning – while in reality – it as nothing to do with wedding planning.
Oh man. I need these next 3 1/2 weeks to fly by. I mean, really… I’m getting acid refulx because I’m internalizing all this.
Sorry this turned into a total vent. I just need to know I’m not alone and its okay and normal for me to be stressed.

Wow lady! You have a lot going on after the wedding. True, most people go through a change after the wedding, but you are doing a whole lot.
I dont have a lot of advice for you but to try and relax and enjoy the moment. This is the only time in your life you will be a month away from your wedding and thats really exciting! Just try and remember what the wedding is really about. Joining your families together and celebrating your love! 😀

I really like what honeybear just wrote… You are making some really major live changes/moves all at once, and sounds like you are keeping it together a LOT better then I would be in your shoes. Try and remember what honeybear said. And remember that every bride (I think) has freak outs….and aren’t going threw half of the moves and changes that you are! 🙂

We’re still about 6 weeks away from our wedding. I have been surprisingly calm throughout the whole process. There was only one point i felt some stress which was about 2 months ago when we found out our officiant booked another wedding the same day as ours and it was to close together so she asked us to change our ceremony time (already sent out invites at this point with the times on it) or find a new officiant. Luckily we found one a week later that could marry us at the time we chose.

Thanks, ladies. I love you comment, Honeybear, “This is the only time in your life that you will be a month away from your wedding and that is really exciting!” I love that. You are so right. I need to remember what is happening NOW instead of what is happening in a month from now.
