Ok, so my bridesmaids jewelry showed up today and it wasn’t what I thought i was getting. I had a mini meltdown about it because nothing seems to be coming together the way I want. While I was indulging in a pity party over these details, I started to wonder how I got here.
In 2 months, I am marrying the greatest man I have ever met…. how did that detail fall out of site? When did the size of the bridesmaids earrings become more important than the marriage?
We are throwing a lot of money at this event, but if I could, I think I would cancel it all right now and run away to some place tropical with him…just to celebrate, alone.
Anyone else feelin’ me on this subject? Sigh…

I definitely understand what you are saying-the important thing is that you recognize that you are losing sight of the reason for all of the stress/madness. I felt like this about 4 months out from my wedding. I am now 2 weeks out and I have to say I feel more excited and calmer than I thought I would be. Hang in there and know you are not alone!

One of the Miss Bloggers had a post up with her matra for wedding planning, and I have really worked hard to take it to heart. And I wrote it on a post it that is right over my desk (where I do most of my wedding planning stuff and wedding bee post reading). It says:
Don’t let the details become bigger than the purpose.
Every time I come up with a new idea or see that something has gone wrong (like the E-mail I got tonight from the hotel I booked for out of town guests telling me that there was a computer error and there are no rooms left in the hotel the night of my wedding), I just remind myself that my wedding is supposed to be fun and that I love my Fiance and the rest will just work itself out.

i too had a mini meltdown. my bridesmaids dresses came in that i ordered off the internet. the were exactly what i expected, beautiful color, well made. but the down side when i ordered them i wanted to order 1 size bigger than what we measured so we would have room to take them in. well horror struck me when my sis put her dress on it just fell off. she’s 2 sizes smaller than the actual dress. it looks like alot of fabric to get rid of. so far three of the dresses have to be altered quite a bit. the scary part, my wedding is in 5 weeks!!!!! my Future Mother-In-Law co-worker alters dresses and i’ve heard good things so i;m really hoping she can get on the ball. i suppose its my fault for being stubborn to order the perfect color dress with the perfect cut online.
so with all this worrying and stressing i had to take 4 min and tell myself that no matter what size color or fit the bridesmaids dresses are i’m still marrying my man. i am happy to have a wedding. me and my FH are so close to our family and friends and we are so excited to celebrate this union in front of everyone.
