Anyone else have family/bridesmaids more stressed out than them? I’m actually pretty chill right now with less than 2 weeks to go. I’ve got everything pretty much ready (with the exception of the ceremony booklet which I’m in the middle of printing).
But my Future Mother-In-Law have been calling both my fiance and I during work today worrying about the reception and if we have enough entertainment (fyi, we have an ipod for music and a photobooth). She’s almost in tears asking us if we need a DJ or band. (We kind of gave up saying no and told her that she can organise something if she wants to but she has until the end of the week.)
My Maid/Matron of Honor is FREAKING OUT about.. well.. nothing? She’s like THERE’S SO MUCH TO DO, when there really isn’t.
I have no idea what’s going on. I thought I’d be more stressed out than this (cos I certainly was freaking out a lot 3 months ago), but I’m just super excited more than anything else.

Well good for you! Way to be the calm in the center of the storm 🙂 No I’m pretty sure I’m more stressed out than my family members lol everyone else is like “don’t worry, it’s going to be amazing!” and I’m freaking out haha. In my defense I am DIYing A LOT of stuff (centerpieces, programs, place cards, favors, and backdrop). I am not a bridezilla whatsoever, just a control freak who also is MOVING the DAY BEFORE THE WEDDING!!!! and my dog is getting fixed two days before the wedding…. and I have an oral interview for Spanish on Monday before the wedding… and I’m applying for jobs… yah. Guess I’m kind of stresed lol!

Haha nope… Fiance and I basically took a lot of the burden on ourselves to organize, decorate, do projects, etc. (the most anyone else is doing is Future Mother-In-Law is doing bouquets and bouts and my mom has been point person for the rehearsal dinner). So at least as far as I know, we’re the only ones freaking out over how much still needs to be done!!

I was a very calm bride and my wedding party was calm as well. However, I was just in a wedding for my friend (I was MOH) and, because she was so super disorganzied, I was DEFINITELY more stressed out than she was, more so becuase I didn’t know anything that was going on. All turned out decent though 🙂

I am not stressed, but my mom is a mess. She is just barely keeping it together. Four more days!

Nope! I’m definitely more stressed, which i think is stressing out everyone else. (I’m usually pretty damn even-keeled and laid-back.) My parents and Future Mother-In-Law keep emailing and calling and texting to say don’t worry, it’ll all come together well, everyone’s just so excited to get together, the details don’t matter… YES THEY DO! Haha. But once the actually wedding day comes and I put my dress on, the stress stops, period.

My mom! But she’s getting progressively calmer as we get closer to finishing all of our last minute DIY projects. Thank goodness.

My FI’s best man is way more stressed than anybody! I find it very weird.

My Maid/Matron of Honor is the most stressed out I think. As long as he says I DO, I don’t really worry about the rest. My Maid/Matron of Honor has been to a lot of things with me and has almost started crying each time. She’s in a serious relationship as well however still a couple years away from engagement. I think that might be an unspoken factor. I love her regardless and couldn’t have asked anyone better 🙂

Fiance is calm, cool collected and zen about it all. I’m an angry basket case because everything I’ve asked my family to do, they have changed. FI called it “Jessica’s Big Fat Greek Wedding” as a joke and I almost burst into tears.
I’ll laugh about it some day.

I’m outwardly calm (people keep commenting on it) but inwardly very stressed. Am trying to move house this week and brain has given up functioning. Also getting frustrated with one vendor who seems fussier about things than me – 6 emails in 2 days. Bleurgh.
