Yeah, losing it a tiny bit. I don’t have a lot left to do, but in a weird way that means I don’t have much to stay busy with… And oh my god, the various vendors are all great, but if they don’t start getting back to me a little bit faster, I am going to go a little nuts.

I am in complete panic mode. Several family members just told me they won’t be attending (after RSVP’ing yes), I haven’t met with the dj to discuss ceremony music, I haven’t seen mockups of my bouquet or centerpieces, haven’t even gotten an estimate from the florist, the photographer won’t return my calls, I have no limos booked for the day of, haven’t started a seating chart yet, haven’t ordered our programs, haven’t had my hair trial yet… Not to mention I’m an emotional wreck, I’m physically exhausted, and I’m completely spaced out during work. Aaaggghhhhh!!!

I had my first wedding meltdown this week
2 couples who had previously RSVP’d yes (to the wedding AND the rehearsal dinner) told us very casually – like – oh no biggie – that they weren’t coming at all.
In the end, not a big deal really, but I burst in to tears and pushed all my seating chart notes off the table and told Fiance it was his job to figure out the tables because I couldn’t keep track of his family anymore.
I felt like an asshole abouuuuuuut 10 minutes later 😛

I was freaking out up until about a week ago. I all of a sudden feel really calm now about everything. I’m sure that will change again! I feel like i’m smooth sailing right now and i feel like everything will get done on time etc. It’s weird because for the last 4 months i’ve been panicking over everything. Right now i feel like my to-do list is pretty much done, or will be very soon, i’m just rollin’ with it right now, maybe i’m starting to prioritize a little better which is making it easier?? i don’t know! Most of my RSVP’s still have to come in by Sept 2nd…. i’ve sent out most of the reminders last week. I’m not stressed at all right now, but i’m SUPER excited! I hope it stays that way up until, hahah….

@breadandbutterflies: I can definitely relate to what you’re going through. My job is super stressful, demanding and time consuming right now, I have so much left to do for the wedding, my Future Mother-In-Law is not coming to the wedding (drama…), and for the last two weeks I’ve had doctor’s appointments because of severe pain. I am completely maxed out and just want to stay home and sleep for a couple of days, but I don’t have the time for that right now. It just seems like too much to handle, and I’m only one step away from a complete mental breakdown.
I come here to escape reality, when I really should be sleeping.

@Big Truck: BREATHE .. and then get to work! That’s a long list for a wedding in just over 2 weeks. The more you cross off, the better you’ll feel. And vendors SUCK! You’d think they know they are dealing with high-strung brides and get back to people sooner but no, they just torture us and make us wait.
2 weeks from today I will be waking up on a gorgeous tropical honeymoon as a married woman! Time to finish up the last few things on my list and soak it all up!

I feel stress too even though 99 percent of our stuff is done. What i do to get my mind off is watch greys anatomy on netflix. Just zone out with a tv series that you can really get into. I also watch the new adventures of old christine which is hilarious! It reminds me not to take myself too seriously!!

I am trying really hard to be calm. Work is nuts right now and wedding stuff is stressing me out at home. I am printing programs today, and got the seating chart and escort cards done on monday. I still really need ot do a practice bouquet though, I feel like it’s a good idea before the actual day when it counts…

I’m not freaking out too bad, but I just want the day to be here already!
Of course, that is how I’m feeling today. It changes every day. Yesterday I spent like 3 hours looking for earrings online before deciding to just wear the ones I’ve been planning on wearing for months! I find myself just freaking out over little things like wanting everything to be absolutely perfect when I’m not like that in real life.

@OnceInLove: I swear you wrote EXACTLY what’s been going on for me. Like you were in my head or something…
I feel like there is no time or money left. We leave for our wedding in three weeks, and I still have a million things to do (like, oh, write the ceremony and get wedding bands). Work is insane, busiest it’s ever been, and there just isn’t enough space in a day for everything that needs to get done. And I’ve been going to the doctor twice a week, eating up work time, which I then make up in personal time when I should be working on this wedding stuff. And the fact that I’m in pain doesn’t help.
I know it’s just a wedding and most of the time I think the planning is ridiculous. But at this point, it’s less like a wedding and more like a goal, if that makes sense.
Wow, this turned into a rant. So yes, I am freaking out. 🙂
On a side note, I sneezed yesterday and glitter came out of my nose. Not kidding.

…and I just looked at the date and realized it’s exactly 1 month before my wedding.

Just looked at the wedding weekend forcast and saw 72 and rainy for 5 days in a row, seriously!?!??! I love sunny and hot and would be very disappointed if I am cold on “my” day, and of corse I didn’t get a shawl or bolero or anything because how cold could labor day weekend really be!??!

I just flipped my shit on our venue owner over email! They had some August cancellations so him and his wife went on vacation and won’t be back until Sept. 1. My final payment is due Sat. so I emailed him last night to firm up the amounts and authorize the payment…. I got an auto reply saying he was unavailable by phone with limited access to email until Sept. 1. WHAT THE EFF?!!? Thanks for letting me know!! So I wrote this total flip out email reply to the autoreply saying why the hell would you go on vacation without letting people who’s bills are due know and not confirming that, what are we gonna do if we lose the venue because we didn’t pay in time, etc. etc.
Well, this morning he wrote back and said that was mostly for people interested in next year and sent the final invoice and answered my questions. I had to write back and apologize for being a Bridezilla, lol. I should’ve just waited a day to see how “limited” his email access was…
Anyways, I’m feeling less freaky outy now. Almost all my questions are answered, our amounts owed are steadily reducing both from paying the amounts and from a lower-than-expected guest count. And most of my to-do list stuff is very manageable.

@pigment80: You just made me laugh out loud. Luckily no glitter came out of my nose.
