Help! I am 47 and planning a wedding for the first time in my life. So far, thanks to all fellow bees, it has been fun, exciting, and exhilrating. However, I have slammed in to a brick wall! I fill overwhelmed and panic, unsure, and did I say overwhelmed. Is this normal? My wedding is 9-10-11 so I know I have time, but I feel like crying. Please help me understand if this is a normal part of wedding planning, If it is then what can I do to get through these moments. Thanks BEES!

Hello, date twin! I haven’t freaked out too much yet, but that’s sort of just my nature. I would suggest making lists of things that have to be done, and assigning them months. That’s how I’ve been dealing with my DIY projects.
Also, a bubble bath and some chocolate might be in order :). A lot of people take a weekend away from wedding stuff and make a pact with their FIs to not talk about it at all, that might help you too :).

I think it’s totally normal! We have all this pressue on us to make this perfect day and it can be the most overwhleming thing ever!
I’m a long engagement bride, so it worked for me, but one time I just avoided wedding everything for about 2 months, no joke. I was in a much better place when I came back into planning with a clear head.
Now, as we get closer to the big day, it can be totally stressful! I’m just trying to keep my eye on the big picture!
Hang in there, it’ll get better!

@msgiraffe: I totally did the burnt out break thing… It helped so much and seems like I came back into it even more bright-eyed and bushy-tailed!
