It is so funny that you just posted this. I was just feeling the same way. Our wedding is 17 days away and I feel very much overwhelmed.  I work full time, attend school part time and have two daughters.  I am also having a DIY wedding.  I just want that day to get here and I look very much forward the honeymoon.  I guess there is not much we can do to get through but just to rememeber why we are doing it and invision the wonderful emotions that will be felt that day. 🙂

Next time you speak to these friends who are feeling neglected tell them how much you have on thier plate and welcome them to your home if they want to help. That way they get to spend time with you and you get some much needed help!

@JessyLovesJaCoby:  The time you spend reading these responses would be the same amount of time sending out a quick “Hey! I’ve been thinking about you guys!” kind of email. Be proactive, and write updates on your progress to make them feel included, yet at the same time communicating to them what you’re tackling and why you’ve been so busy. When you put it into perspective without them even asking, they have no choice but to be understanding. Heck, you may even get a response from someone saying they would be willing to help. In that case, you wouldn’t have ASKED for their help when they offered it. SCORE!  Just supply a bottle of wine, play some neat music, have a girl talk, and make your favors. 

They will understand. Don’t worry too much. The fact that you care enough about “neglecting” people 6 weeks before the wedding says a lot about the friend you are under ordinary calm circumstances. I’m sure they completely understand.

I can see where your frustration lies, but your loved ones should also understand why you can’t hang with them like they want. If you could use help with some of your DIY stuff, why not set up a girls night with some wine (or your drink of choice) and order in some dinner and make it a hang out session where you can catch up. If one of my close friends was in your same position and I was feeling neglected, I wouldn’t mind a little DIY/girl talk one evening. You could always just make a quick call on your way home from work or in between running errands to catch up and let them know that you were thinking about them. Good luck!
