just a bit overwhelmed at the moment.. I’m under 4months out from the wedding and I feel like I’m being pushed to no return! im so over wedding planning and talking about weddings and making lists and decisions! It’s seriously driving me insane.. I’ve never felt so stressed in all my life!! Last night I had a meltdown (unlike me) and I just got in my car and drove bawling my eyes out like a big drama queen! and it was pretty much over nothing that important.. My mom and Moh (sister) were basically saying that I have to hurry up and make some decisions about flower arrangements and I lost it at them!! I’m just sick of losing battles against everyone who’s trying to stick their noses in.. All I want is to be married to my amazing fiancé! I don’t care about wether or not too much greenery will make the flowers look cheap!!! Grrr!! Also it’s so unlike me to A) not care, and B) lose my shit over it! Lol
I don’t know why I’m writting this post, I guess I just need some encouragment and support from some Bees who are going through/been through the same thing! Is this normal? Or am I really insane?
thanks for listening to my rant! 🙂

Wedding planning can be a stressful time! I think we’ve all had mini breakdowns in our own ways. Just think – in four months this will be over and you’ll be a newlywed!

I know how you feel! I’m now 3 weeks out and a couple of months’ ago I’d just had enough of trying to not cause family rifts simply by reminding them it’s our wedding, and that we just might want to do it our way!
Stick to your guns – it’s not too far now until you can marry your love!

kayjay612: Have you had any time off? I’ve found at times when it’s overwhelming that doing something completely unrelated with my FI where wedding talk is banned and you’re out of the house so you can’t do anything wedding related helps, also avoid places where there are shops etc that could make you feel like you should just pop in to look for x for the wedding or inspiration for such and such. Plan a whole day or weekend where you do something relaxing that the two of you like, for example we go to the seaside for the day.

kayjay612: I’m a Feb bride too. This month isn’t too bad. But November looks ridiculous. Final meetings (for the vendors who want us finalized before Christmas and their staff taking vacation in January), to fittings, bachelor/bachelorette parties… and we’re closing on our first house in early Dec.
I haven’t snapped yet. But I’ve gotten to the point where ‘that’ll do’ comes out of my mouth a lot. I don’t need perfection. I just need it done! And once I’ve made my decision its made, no going back, no rethinking, no ‘what-about-this…’ It’s done! Moving on!
March is only a short time away… I keep telling myself that by March all of this will be behind me (house, wedding, after wedding party (because we decided to have 50 people to the house for a party the day after the wedding) and honeymoon. March will be real life again! Hang in there, we can make it!
