  • poll: How you currently feel about your wedding?

    Totally chill, not worried a bit!

    I HATE it all!

    I go back and forth.

    Ready for it to be over.

    It’s back and forth for me…sometimes I feel great and can’t wait for it. These tend to be days where I am either not focussed on it at all or focussed on a fun element like buying my wedding shoes or trialling wedding makeup. But then I have bad days which usually involve a more serious aspect like today our minister sent me the order of service and vows and I fely physically ill. I’m fine about getting married but the stress of being centre of attention and speaking in front of everyone is getting to me.

    For me the stress isn’t related to planning as I love planning and have been very organised about it, instead it centres around my nerves about the day. I definitely agree with the feeling of looking forward to it being over. I just can’t wait to be married and heading off to honeymoon with no worries! I am hoping I will enjoy it when it comes though!

    ChicagoBride15:  Just like you, I have the little details that still need to be figured out… and I’m going nuts inside. I’m TRYING MY BEST to not have the “oh whatever” attitude because that’s when I start to slack off. I’m bummed I didn’t lose weight for my wedding, so I’m either eating little or too much, and on top of that, I really want it to be over – which is sad.

    I honestly wish I did an olden day type of wedding – small ceremony and a huge dinner. But overall, I am thankful that I am getting married to someone I adore, and that my mother and family are there to watch. <- I need to start thinking that way.

    Newbie here, getting married on August 8th!! I definitely go back and forth, mostly between feeling scared to death and soooo excited like I can’t wait. I just got engaged in May, and I didn’t know he existed before January, lol. So anyway we haven’t had a lot of time to plan at all.
    Our families are both very into it tho, especially my Future Mother-In-Law, so they are taking care of a LOT of the details and planning, which is really really great for me.Seriously, I told my Fiance yesterday that if the family wasn’t helping with this for us, we’d just have to elope, cuz I would NEVER be able to deal with all the stress.
    Yesterday I had an “Oh no!!! It’s JULY! and I’m getting married in AUGUST!” kind of day, but today I feel a little more relaxed again.

    ChicagoBride15:  My wedding is August 23rd and I feel extremely stressed out. Our wedding lead/toastmaster cancelled on us and now we have to find a new one. Otherwise there are these little details to sort through but there just seems so many little ones I can’t seem to keep them all straight. Oh and future hubby not helping out much…the weddings are for the bride by the bride no exceptions!

    Pacing, nail biting, tears rolling and then fits of laughter.  Our date is August 21 and now I’m so ready for our wedding to take place, so we can move on with our lives.

    I still have lingere to find, clothes for the honeymoon, and his wedding day gift. YIKES!

    I am so glad I am not the only one having meltdowns! Although some days i am super excited and chill, but other days totally overwhelmed.

    Mine is august 29th. I was completely stressing out about money but we JUST paid off all of our vendors so I am feeling a little better…..until i started my to-do list and realized our whole rest of the summer will be filled with appointments with vendors/dress fittings etc!!

    My fiance wants nothing to do with planning and is pretty much sick of talking about any thing wedding related….and here I am stressed out, working full time, going to the gym like a mad man,  not sleeping and stress eating!! 😫😫 

    Congrats and good luck to all you August brides, and keep telling yourselves it will all be worth it!

    Mrs.Matty:  Yay!! Finally a date twin! We have exactly 20 days left How did that HAPPEN??
    What things do you have left to do before the big day??
    I’m just trying to enjoy spending every moment I have left with my family, because after the wedding I’ll be moving pretty far away from them

    kaitlynaubrey01:  Oo thats really close now! I’ve got my hen party that day.

    Are you making your centerpieces from scratch? What are you doing for them?

    Our main centerpieces are cream buckets filled with fresh flowers so I only had to buy the buckets for those, but we’re also having DIY jars down the table runner with random flowers placed inside. I managed to finish them last week but it took a while, I decorated 60 in total.
