LemonColoredLamps:  08/27 here. And I am sooooo ready for this to be done and over with!!! I think. I’ve just got to clean out my centerpieces, And do my wedding toss bags. And scheduled hair trial. Other than that I can’t think of anything else that needs to be done. But I’m sure I’m forgetting a million things! 

 

It’s at the point now, I just want it to be the day of so I can STOP stressing and thinking about things! It’s really no fun ๐Ÿ™ Not to mention moving into my new place soon, so I’ve got THAT going on as well. 

 

Hanging in there though! But my key is I’m an anti-procrastinator! I hate leaving things half-done or not having anything finished, if I can finish it. So, tha’s how I’m getting most of this done!

August 14th for me – up until this point I felt like I’ve been pretty calm and relaxed about everything… but I’m definitely starting to feel the pressure when I think about the limited number of days left!! I decided to prioritize what has to be done and then just take it day by day, making sure to check something off the list every day…. thinking about the big picture is just too overwhelming now – LOL.  Can’t wait to be married though!! WOOP! Happy Weddings to all of you ladies!! ๐Ÿ™‚

August 22 and YES, I’m exhausted and over it esp. since I never wanted the wedding in the first place.  I stopped calculating how much everything cost because it got depressing. I haven’t booked the honeymoon, flowers or a cake yet. My fiance and I are in the middle of moving to a new city, he’s starting a new job next week and I’ve been at a new job for 6 months – so we have other things going on in addition to the wedding. I’m not doing anything crafty or artsy for the wedding – my mantra has simply been “as long as we have all the necessary stuff” – which reminds me we still need rings and figure out a time to get the marriage license.

August 15th here! 23 more days!!

My emotions have been a rollercoaster these past couple of weeks. So much stress, just one piss off after another.

My wedding is in my hometown (7 hours away from where I live) and I am stressed about packing everything up and possibly forgetting something behind. What I really need to do is make a checklist, but I don’t even know where to begin lol

There are also massive forest fires buring all around where my wedding is taking place so I pray that they can get them out – I feel so sad for all of the people living through that nightmare.

Major drama with the place my Fiance got my engagegemnt ring. It’s with them right now for sizing and I don’t trust them at all so I am super worried about them loosing it or not getting it back in time. 

I have had several nightmares, which makes my anxiety so much worse. 

I just want the day to come so I can marry my best friend and not have to stress anymore.

clarktaylor22:  I still need to get gifts for everyone, too. What are you planning on getting? We’re giving the groomsmen ties but I’m stumped after that. I’m thinking jewelry for my bridesmaids, no clue for the parents.

I’m August 8th and I am at my breaking point. The wedding nightmares have been ruining my sleep and I’m constantly making lists of things that need to be done.

I’m the baby in my family and my parents are FREAKING OUT! They’re taking all the emotion of “my last child is getting married” and turning it into “We must throw the most perfect event ever where absolutely nothing goes wrong and every single person’s individual, random need is met!” And I’m just like, “As long as everyone can eat, drink and dance, we’re good!” Then I get a lecture about “making sure everyone has a good time,” which apparently includes giant centerpieces and a million formal photos. Did you know people only feel special if you request a photo with them? I finally talked to my parents about how stressed it’s making me that they’re being so demanding and it’s been a bit better.

lindsayE:  I am in the same boat! I was hoping we would top out at 75 guests, maybe 80.  Including myself and Fiance, we’ll have 101 people! Aside from wishing it were smaller, I’m now in the dreaded position of meeting a bunch of people for the first time on my wedding day and pretending I remember relatives I’ve met once when I was 8. I keep telling myself to feel flattered and loved while secretly wishing I could elope and then go out for milkshakes and fries with a few close friends.

spiffanee:  I got my bridesmaids gifts from collage.com. They had a special for $45 a piece. I bought them a fleece blanket with pictures of all their family and friends on it. I will put that in a bag with a bottle of wine. The groomsmen are getting watches from dappertime.com probably for around $40-$50 a piece. The girl attendants will be getting a pandora bracelet with one charm and the boy attendants will get a gift card to a video game store. My parents though I still have no clue about.

Happy wedding week to Aug 1st brides!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m August 29, and yes I’m EXHAUSTED. But there’s still so many little details I’ll be disappointed if I don’t do. So gotta power through! Ugh. I was just thinkiing about how nice it will be to have my weekends back after all of this is over LOL.

And I agree with the bee above who mentioned how impossible it is to delegate stuff at this point. Everyone keeps asking if they can help, but the the truth is, no, you can’t! Oh how I wish you could.

August 22nd – PretyY chilled. Doing the last shop for bits with Fiance tomorrow and then doing my DIYs (perks of teacher holidays).

I feel tired and a bit fed up and I’m lucky that Fiance has done 75% of the planning because im not really very bridal. WeddingBee has been helping me.
