It’s ok, we all need to vent. Just a little advice from someone who is literally drowning in work right now: try to find a way to get little things done for the wedding now (even if everyone is pressuring you and it makes you want to do it less). This exact thing happened to me, and now, with two weeks left, I feel like I can’t even enjoy it. Be stressed out now so you can enjoy it later 🙂

@alyssars1:  We applied for our marriage license last week and you have no idea how badly I just wanted to elope when I saw people waiting in line for the judge.

Hang in there sweetie! It does get better! I booked almost all of our vendors ~6 months out, so the last couple months have been pretty relaxing and I’ve had plenty of time to focus on regular life and put the wedding aside. 

I hope you meet some new friends! I moved here a couple years ago and I’ve found it hard to make new BFFs. But I have met a lot of new people through an outdoor bootcamp, and it’s helped me stay fit and de-stress during wedding planning. If you have any time at all, you might want to do some kind of activity like that for fun! It really helped Mr. Wallaby and I!

Don’t worry about getting everything done at once – make a list of priority and do one or two things a week as you have time. The invites can wait for a month or two, as can the flowers. For the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, if you’re really busy, could you ask your BMs to research dresses and get the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress search going? I would focus on booking the officiant first, since that’s, at the end of the day, the most important thing for a wedding.

Awwww I know how you feel!  I am currently going to school AND working 3 ddifferent part time jobs, between 30-50 hrs a week AND my wedding is in 8 months!!!  I also feel like people keep putting pressure on me.  Have you done this yet, when are you going to do that???  It is driving me crazy!!!  The only advice I can give you is make sure to take some time for yourself and your Fiance.  Have a nice dinner, a glass of wine, and watch a movie!
