- Wedding: June 2012
Ok. so my wedding is in 15 days, and I’m starting to lose it! I’m super anxious at work because I know I have a lot of deadlines to meet before leaving town next weekend for the wedding, and I’m not about to let myself even think of trying to get work done in the week before the wedding when I’m out of the office.
So then I come home, exhausted and stressed, to this list of stuff to finish for the wedding. Some of it isn’t that important and I can do the week I’m off, but other stuff really needs to get done asap! For example, we’re writing our own ceremony, and we haven’t even finished the script yet! Much less our vows…
I try to delegate stuff to my fiance, but he isn’t the checklist type that makes sure everything gets done as early as possible. This means I have to ask him over and over if something is done, which eventually turns into nagging. I think we’ve gotten into one argument or another every day this week because if I’m not being impatient about wedding stuff, I’m snappy about other things.
In the process of being so busy the last few weeks/months, I’ve started to lose touch with all my friends and feel like there is no one to vent to about this stuff on a regular basis. To boot, instead of getting our 125-150 guests we were hoping for, we are only getting 100. This not only made planning a headache (e.g. covering food/bev minimums with the venue), but also just makes me sad that I’m losing touch with people I care about.
Now I just get so overwhelmed when I get home and it’s time to work on wedding stuff that I get reduced to tears every time I try! What’s happening to me?!? This is not who I am 🙁
