So, I am lookin at the list of things we gotsa do..and um..I gotta say all the crap that needs to be done for a wedding is a bit much! I got stressed just registering somewhere..and forget pickin out gifts for it.. and the dress and the tux and the this and that and relatives..don’t even start on that one, lol. And somehow I should squeeze a bridal shower in and I don’t even know how to do one of those. I hate those cheesy games though..like guess this spice? By smelling it? I don’t cook often enough for that one, lol..or those mad libs? Haha. Ugh. Planning and buying crap is like a lot to deal with! Like I cross something off the list and then have to add another one? Die list!! DIE! Lol, can you tell I am a bit stressin? I will now think of a happy place near the ocean with seagulls and all that. ahhhh. lol. How are you dealin bees? Everyone doin ok? Or are you feelin a bit overwhelmed like me?

I’m in the same boat.almost wanting to quit lots of proyects I already started. Feeling so tired and overwhelmed too. I wish I can have someones help. I have a wedding planner but I’m doing lots of things still. What I do is I had been taking one thing at a time,but even though is so hard to deal with the big list. I hope you can beat that 🙂 good luck

Good luck to you too:). Ya, I think taking things one at a time..is the way to go. And not think of the length of your list:).

Uh huh. I posted earlier–our day is 11/27/10–next Saturday.
I’m melting down over expenses–of course it’s more than I planned & naturally fundage is lower than I would have expected it to be at this point.
Ugh. I may have to break into savings, which makes me hyperventilate just thinking about it.
Where is the magic check fairy with those wedding gifts?

I;ve had a few of those meltdowns and this is what’s helped me. No one cares as much as you do, so don’t stress about the favors, centerpieces, and nonsense like that. Do make sure the music, food, and booze ( if you’ll have it) is on point lol….that’s about the only thing people will remember (sadly). Don’t look at everything on your list! That really helped me. just look at the top 1 or 2 and tackle it one at a time. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. If you can, delegate the shower and bach party to your Future Mother-In-Law or your Maid/Matron of Honor. It would be awkward if you had to host these events yourself anyway. My Maid/Matron of Honor asked to do both my shower and bach party with help from others and its been fabulous because all she does is say, hey, what do you think about x, y, or z. I say it’s great and keep it moving. Also, DIY is great if you’re into it, but I’ve found that you’ll save yourself a lot of headache if you pay someone to do it and its in the budget. Just my two cents.
