Aww honey!  I was married last September, and right around this time last year, I was crying pretty much daily.  My husband and I bought a new house, designed the interior of it, planned a wedding all in one.  My WORD it was a lot to handle! The good news?  When it’s all said and done, your wedding day will be beautiful and you’ll remember it forever, and you’ll have a beautiful house to call yours right along with your new husband! Big hugs to you, everything will be okay! I promise! 😀 And I’m not just saying that!

I personally am a big fan of chocolate cake, massage, and a good glass of wine.  Good luck with everything!  You have a lot on your plate right now but it will totally be worth it in the end!

I like wine. Lots of wine. I also watch Bridezillas and it makes me feel better that I am not them. (or have to deal with them)

How?  All we NEED is me, him, and an officiant (contract signed and paid for) to make if official.  Closer to the day we’ll need a marriage license.  Sure there’s lot of other things we want and most we’ll have… but bottom line we get what we’re after (married)!  That’s what I think when it’s OMG THERE’s SO MUCH TO DO.  Of course I’m a planner and don’t so friendly with “stress” (it can be an either/or sort of thing for me).  I start feeling to stressed and I’ll just say screw it for the day.  Life’s too short to get all freaked out about stuff that only matters for a day for you and most won’t even notice.  The important part is the getting married part!  Breathe, relax, step back and come back to the issues later/tomorrow.

just keep swimming…. just keep swimming…. 

opened my own business, quit my day job, planning wedding, classes starting again, remodeling house…. somedays I just throw up my hands and say “I quit” and make a really strong glass of tea… and then get going 

Darling Husband thinks I am nuts, everytime something minor goes wrong I start telling him that we are running away to costa rica… if one more thing happens I just might too

I’m the exact same way. I’m freaking out over things when the wedding is just around the corner. Although we have a ton of stuff to do, I just think we deserve a day to simply relax! I hope all goes well!

20 minutes in the tanning bed every day. It’s nice and warm and quiet. Has anyone else had really awful stress-induced stomach issues? I can’t even eat without getting sick anymore, even when I don’t feel stressed 🙁 We also decided to move, so I’ve had new added stress of trying to get approved for a new apartment. Ugh.

Oh wow, that’s alot to handle.  Just remember to breathe.  Seriously.  Take a moment to take deep breaths until your mind is clear and you feel calm.  Then remind yourself of the BIG picture: you are getting married and getting a house: 2 huge blessings.

I am not stressing out yet but I can feel the pressure as the days tick off.  I am thinking more and more thought of the day of… not sure what to od yet since as of now, set up and decorating is all on me. BUt I remind myself that it is one day and I want to enjoy it so I won’t be overthing anythign right now.  It’ll work out.

I cry…all the time… I cried yesterday at the city housing and health building while getting our occupancy permit (we’re closing on our house next Wednesday), I cried at the bank, I cried at the drive through at McDonalds while my mom was lovingly buying me a chocolate shake, I cried at TGIFs when Fiance took me to dinner since I cried all day.

Oh, and today while talking with Fiance on the phone, I cried. I was telling him how my paycheck was late, so I wouldn’t get it until Monday. They usually deliver the checks between 2-3 and I got off at 3 and they wern’t there yet. I was telling him I wouldn’t have cash for my bachelorette party tomorrow night and he said he would give me some cash…and I cried.
