Im also breaking out and I seriously have practically perfect skin (that sounds so pompous but it just gives you an idea haha).

I cant give any advice, because Im in the same boat, but I would say to take some time to relax each day and spend some times talking with Fiance with a rule of no wedding talk!

@Neenavaughn:  I tried to delegate to my fiance and he gave it back (!!!) because he has been working OT.  So I tried to redelegate it to my BM’s because they asked for it…so we may or may not have music at the reception.  lol

My list:

  • Getting hair done this weekend
  • Teeth cleaning next Friday
  • Call and verify keg order
  • GIFT FOR PARENTS.  Seriously…I am totally lost on this one.
  • Gifts fro Groomsmen…my fiance is a serious slacker. Include one for musician.
  • Dry clean dress (I want it professionally pressed)
  • finish shopping list (we’re self catering for 60 – kill me)
  • sew bean bags
  • get more runner
  • get a basket for bread, a container for flatware
  • Music has been pseduo delegated to the BM’s
  • finish corn hole boards
  • spray paint metal tubs white
  • pre-order ice
  • buy more floral supplies
  • submit final floral order
  • buy cups and plastic wine cups
  • buy wine!! (how could I forget this very important detail – thank you for this thread)
  • send out dress rehearsal info
  • ask family member to record wedding on my iphone (we have photography covered)
  • finalize guest/car list for check-in office at campsite (we’re comping parking for our guests)
  • Buy food items (waaay closer to date)
  • Pack
  • Pick up rentals (also the day we leave)

Damnit!! I keep thinking of more sh*t!!!  I am completely 100% on autopilot at this point.  I am jogging every couple of days so I don’t jump off a bridge but the drinking has escalated a bit.  I need xanax.  o.O

I don’t like looking at my to-do list! I hope I remember everything… and the day itself!

@Neenavaughn:  Ahh jeez. What kind of material is it? I would actually post this question on the Dress thread and see what you get…

I’m one day after but I am starting to feel the pressure. And I’m breaking out. It’s like I’m 13 again.

@fancypants:  I’m getting kind of used to it. It’s just like I’m vibrating at a much higher frequency and everybody better either say yes to me or get out of my way. I am an August-zilla.

Less than 2 weeks to go!!  12 days!!

Both of our families are starting to get stressed out/worried..  I am actually doing not too bad..  But this week is going to be busy with meetings every night with my vendors.  Always fun.

Are we on our honeymoon yet? ๐Ÿ˜‰

@Silverblade:  Same here!  All of a sudden everybody is offering to help, I’m like ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! Do you people not know me at all?  I needed you months ago, everything that is left has to be done by me and me alone.  I got a ton done this weekend though so I am celebrating by not doing anything tonight. Just my cat, TV and some chocolate. Yesss.

@WillyNilly:  Sounds like a lovely evening! ๐Ÿ™‚  I took the past weekend off by going away on a mini vacation which was awesome..  But now I’m back to the grind of things. Hopefully your family can help you out a bit over the next little while!

But I kinda spoke a bit too soon by that previous post haha.  As soon as I got home from work then more wedding things came up that I had to deal with.. Like my limo company randomly thinking I cancelled??  So I had to set that straight.  and my schedule is getting full and hard to coordinate with DF’s..  Argh.  Two of my bridesmaids are being a bit difficult too..  I got a bit stressed out tonight but I managed to calm down after dinner and wine.  I think I like your idea of chocolate now ๐Ÿ™‚

Awww CRAP.  I have a thunderstorm scheduled for two days before my OUTDOOR CAMPING WEDDING. I know things can change, and hopefully it will push through faster, but if it gets delayed for some reason, I’m screwed.  There is absolutely 100% no other alternative.
