That sounds like you have a lot going on! Considering you’re only 37 days away from the big day I’m sure that you are just experiencing wedding stress. Have you tried to just take a day for you and relax? Maybe you could go out and do something nice for yourself or have a little vacation at home. Give yourself a nice little at home spa day and settle in to read a book you haven’t been able to.

Do you have a lot left to do for the wedding?

Maybe keep a notebook handy to jot down a master list of what you need to get done.  Then date each page for the next 37 days….when I’m feeling overwhelmed it makes me feel less stress if I can look at a day and see what exactly I need to get done!  Good luck!

Well I’m sure you have nothing to worry about and that all of those little things will come together when the time comes.

I like what bridesmomma said about making a list. Maybe having a set plan in writing will help. I guess you could consider it a contract with yourself?

@pyma: Mine is in 24 days (AHHHHHHHHHHH) and I’ve been doing the exact same thing! Whenever I think about it I get this panicked feeling like I’m forgetting something important. Sometimes it calms me down to go look at our ceremony script I just finished and read over our vows, it reminds me what this is all about and that at the end of the day, no matter what, I’ll be married to the man I love =)

44 more days for me, and I have the same things going on….I have been bawling my eyes out everyday, and sometimes for NO REASON! I wasn’t planning on doing anything wedding related today and that was ALL I did all day…I have been having nightmares about bad bridal showers, and too many people showing up (whom I do not know). 

I figure, it has to be normal, because I am not crazy LOL and now I know I am not alone HAHA!

@pyma:  The last week or so I have been feeling the stress too.  Something about the 6 week mark really hit me…ahhh! Thankfully I have been able to calm down for most of the day, except when I get home and think about all the stuff that still needs to be done but yet can’t be done until closer to the day! We will make it though! and it will be perfect b/c it will be OUR wedding day! 🙂

If it will make you feel better, I’ll be attending a wedding on October 8 and while visiting, the bride informed us over the weekend that she still has not booked a tent or asked anyone to cook for her 300 person event yet. But her dress is already altered! Glad to see her priorities are straight…

I’m sure you’ll be fine! 🙂

I feel exactly the same way!!!  I feel like I am running around like crazy!!  I am a little less than 2 months out now and I feel like it is non stop planning, thinking, doing, dreaming/nightmaring. 

I think it will be a crazy transition after the wedding.  But you are not alone =)

You are my date twin!!!

I feel the same way you do – there’s still so much to be done, but so much that I can’t do until the last week or so. I’m trying to focus on the stuff that I can do right now, but I feel so overwhelmed by how much stuff I still have on my to-do list!

It never hurts to remind yourself that most of the stuff you haven’t done yet is probably not all that important in the grand scheme of things. If you’ve done the big stuff (got the officiant and ceremony in order, got your venue, food, drink, and entertainment/music in order), then don’t worry! Everything else is just minor details that most people won’t care about one way or the other.

Yeah, I am feeling the stress. I know it’s getting to be too much when the restless wedding nightmares kick in. Then I bug Mr. LK for help until he does what I want him to, and I start feeling better again. I know he is exhausted after work, but so am I. He needs to put on his big girl panties and follow-through on the promises he made months ago when he said, “I can do those things. We don’t need to pay other people to do them for us.”

I feel the same way… I’m so tired and stressed and I have so many things to do, but the stress is getting to me and I just can’t seem to make myself finish any of my projects. I so wish we just eloped a few months ago…
