I started freaking out last night. With only a month away, we haven’t figured out DJ, car, some formal work, flowers and now my dress problem is getting out of hand (http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/dress-choice-over-remorse-forever-yours-4912-vs-alfred-angelo-205-cinderella#axzz2WkUKQhQ1) because the store refuses to negotiate.
I can’t do it alone, I’m swamped with work as it is (I am doing my PhD), as well as my Fiance, who has to travel a lot.
The last bit came last night, when people started calling me (!) about my bachelorette party because my man of honor seems to have changed the date several times. If I get one more thing on my plate, I will explode 🙁
Sorry, I guess I needed the vent…

Hey, I am just a waiting bee so am not in the same position as you but wanted to say *** breath*** it will be ok.
Is there anyone you know, Mom, Sister etc that you can go to and say, look, I am totally freaking out, so busy and need some help please? What about your Fiance, is there anything he can take off your hands?
I really hope you get some support and everything calms down a bit. And in regards to your bachelorette, just tell people to call your Maid/Matron of Honor and that you are not organising it and don’t know. Just divert them elsewhere, you don’t need to be stressing about that too! xxx

@moiraine: it sounds like you have a lot on your plate…I can understand why you’re feeling overwhelmed. I agree with PP, do you know anyone you can ask to help? Start deligating! Even people who aren’t in your wedding party…if at any point they offered to help, give them a shout 🙂

I am facing a lawsuit with the bridal salon at this point – just got off the phone with them and they are not negotiating. I can’t possibly get married in this dress anymore, it makes me sick and reminds me too much of all that has happened so far 🙁
Thank you for the kind words… Sometimes you just need to hear someone say them to make you feel better.

@moiraine: How are you coping? Did things get better? It’s less than 2 weeks to your wedding…soon it will be over and you’ll see all your hard work pay off.

@Pretty_Chick: Oh, it’s still a lot of work, but no freaking out anymore 🙂 Some things started falling into place. How are your preparations going so far?

@moiraine: Oh good! I’m so happy to hear that! So far so good, no craziness yet. But we are certainly spending a whole lot of money!!! Wowsers. I know it’s worth it though 🙂 Thanks for asking.
