Six weeks out and I thought I’d feel stressed, twitching eyes, bulging veins, tears. But no, I just feel happy, excited and strangely calm when I think about the wedding.
I’m not even having wedding nightmares. I’m having nightmares about zombies and ghosts but nothing remotely wedding related.

I, too, am strangely calm. I have been getting a lot done, so maybe that’s why.
And no wedding nightmares either! At least, none that I remember.
Maybe this is the calm before the storm?

I thought I was feeling calm…but with three weeks to go I actually think I could use a Xanax….

I feel exactly the same. I feel really calm but then I sometimes worry that I am too calm ha ha! I have to say I was A LOT more stressed out like 4 months ago – now, I am just excited and in pre wedding bliss and enjoying every minute of it. SO has finally realised that “OMG we are getting married in 5 weeks” and is stressing about his speech and stuff (so he is more stressed than me now lol) but we are in a really good loving place and just very excited and happlily looking forward to the big day.

@amyinbrisbane: I had wedding nightmares for weeks right after getting engaged…none lately, though (at least that I remember!). We were at a friend’s wedding last weekend and everyone was asking me if I was stressed out…but amazingly, I’m not (well, at least any more than normal). My to-do list has a few outstanding items, but all the big moving pieces are booked and confirmed, so if one or more of the small things doesn’t get done, no big deal.

Yep I’m freakishly calm too. I’m getting things done and still have plenty left to do and sometimes I’m just like “screw it, I’m taking a nap” LOL I always hear how stressful wedding planning is but I really haven’t stressed out at all. My wedding coordinator is a family friend and she is super duper amazing so I think that’s helped. But there are sometimes where I feel like I’m o a completely different planet. This all still feels like a dream.

@amyinbrisbane: So do I, although I’m usually not a stress ball anyway. Everything is working as planned and although we do still have a few minor things to do, we’re pretty much all set!
We met with some of our vendors (DJ, video, day-of coordinator) and walked through the timeline. It feels so much more real now – I can’t wait!!!

I’ve been pretty relaxed throughout our long engagement. We’ve had things done and settled for months. Now we just do the walk throughs, final meetings, and focus on things like buying gifts and thinking of logistics. Ahhh the joys.

We still have a few things left to do, but yes, I’m unusually calm about it.
Can’t really speak for the week of, though! 🙂
I really can’t believe it’s almost here. A part of me hasn’t had that “OMG THIS IS HAPPENING!!” moment yet. I think I’ve just got so much going on right now that my brain has gone temporarily numb! lol
I have had a few short moments of panic, and FI has had to talk me down. The other night I was all stressed out over programs. We are designing them and printing ourselves and we haven’t done it yet. FI looks at me and says, we can do that in one night…don’t worry…what’s next on your list?
Lately he’s been impersonating Half-Baked to pick on me. It makes me laugh…
“Don’t worry…I’m not gonna doooo what everyone thinks I’m gonna doooo and (flails arms) FREAK OUT man!”

Lol. Love all your comments ladies!
I thought I was done with browsing wedding mags but I went out and bought one last night and just absorbed every page. I think I was looking for stuff I may have forgotten but nope, it’s all good! So far 😉
Some of the weddings featured in the magazine cost so much money! One couple spent about $70,000 AUD which is $64,400 USD !! WTF. Ours is coming in at $18,000 USD which still seems like a huge amount to me.
We are having some dilemmas with getting suits (we organised this months ago but the suit place is stuffing us around) but my FH refuses to let me stress about it and says to ‘trust him, it’ll all work out’. Ok!!

I’ve been extremely calm…even when I feel like I should be stressed out about something, I’m not. Ok, well there was one day that I was stressed which caused me to eat two McDonald’s cheeseburgers and large fries (and this is a huge no for me since I’ve been on a wedding diet) but it sure did make me feel better. So I had one moment of weakness, but all in all, I’ve definitely been pretty calm.

I am feeling good and confident. I keep telling myself its going to be perfect no matter what. The day is’nt going to make or break my marriage. Our best man wife told me months ago, dont sweet the small stuff and I keep sticking to it. People will ask me what about this what about that. As long as its not a huge detail I am famous for saying “I don’t care, It’s not a bid deal, you just decide”
I just want to get through the next few weeks so I can enjoy the day, with trying to have minimal stress and marry my best friend.

I wish I was stress free. less than four weeks to go. Lots of small details and re-confirming to go. Work just got crazy and I feel stressed. For the first time since we got engaged. It’s annoying the hell out of me. So I think a get it done weekend is in order then normal service can resume.
