I don’t know what to do.
I broke our printers (well jammed one to the point of no return, Fiance tried to take it apart) and the other one is just …crazy. and we have 180 programs to print!
Our church had us down for our ceremony an hour later than anticipated
We can’t get into the hall at the time we were supposed to be able to which has pushed back our decorator which pushes back the times we can have our deliveries from the friday before to the SATURDAY OF… and the coordinator WANTS ME PRESENT for this!
My hair is falling out and is going white.
I have my period (okay this one is actually good, but its my first one in THREE MONTHS and I am in agony)
I’m having a hard time contacting vendors.
Because of all the problems (programs and other print items) I’m now SO far behind that I don’t even know what to do.
ARRRRHG I QUIT I DONT WANNA DO IT ANYMORE

@mayflowerbride13: screw the programs! you dont need them so maybe just save yourself a little stress by ditching them…:)

@mayflowerbride13: Aww honey! Hugs! I know this is cliche but I promise everything will be okay! I know it feels like you need to get everything done right now, but if you can afford it, maybe you should take a little breather today and go do something that you love to do! 🙂

@lifegirl: seconded. unless you’re having a 3-hour-long greek orthodox ceremony all in greek, you dont need programs. screw ’em! no one will miss them.
and things like this happen to all brides the week of. just take everything one thing at a time and try not to stress about the little stuff!

You need to get to “f*ck it” mode. If it is causing you stress and it is not critical just drop it, you don’t need programs. Tell your coordinator you are paying for her expertise and cannot be present saturday

Make a list. Stuff that’s most important to least important. Get all that you can done, and then just release the rest as stuff that just will not get finished. Or delegate the tasks to someone else. Take a few hrs in the afternooam doc do something relaxing to get your mind off wedding stuff and back in ybody own body lol. And take some midol! 🙂

I can’t skip the programs, I spent hours designing them myself 🙁
I went to school for event management and this is like my chance for my first thing for my portfolio and shit, and… just everything is giong wrong. For a client I’d be calm and collected but my emotional attachment to my own wedding is making me so angry.
🙁 I’m just so tired and am stressing because I feel that its some kind of sign we shouldn’t get married. literally EVERYTHING that could go wrong, has.

I’m sorry. This sounds incredibly stressful! I agree, forget the programs, or see if Office Max, Kinko’s, etc. can print them. Tell the coordinator you won’t be there or Saturday, or delegate that someone else. Can you take today off from wedding planning? You need to take care of yourself or there won’t be a bride for the wedding, ya know? I was starting to really stress out 2 weeks ago and I told myself that my guests don’t know the vision I’ve had in my head. In other words, if something, like the programs, is missing, they won’t even know they were supposed to be there. It doesn’t have to be perfect! Good luck, try to breathe! 🙂

@mayflowerbride13: ain’t nobody thinkin about those programs. so chill on the paper woes.
just write down a list of the things you have to do and go for a walk. come back and create a plan to execute the decorating in a timely manner. if it helps, group things together and just make sure it’s all stocked and ready to go.
you’re getting married! enjoy the thought and don’t worry about these details. everything will work out the way it’s supposed to.

Well, my Fiance took apart our printer while I was at work and miraculously put it back together… my boss let me have the rest of the day off to get caught up (it was a REALLY slow day at work) so we’ve got a nice assembly line working on it now… and mom is working on pew bows.
I’m pmsing and had a bit of a freak out, I think I’m better now 🙂
Thanks for the support ladies, I know that the details aren’t as important as the big day…It’s just frustrating because I didn’t want a big wedding to begin with. le siiigh!
