I’m only a week from my wedding and I have been very stressed out and emotional for much of the last few months, for various reasons and stressors.  I think it’s normal. Between all the extraneous drama, it hasn’t even fully hit me that I’m getting married and what that will entail.  

What I can say to you (which is advice I should take myself) is that you should focus on the positive aspects of the wedding and planning process. This period of your life will soon be over and many of these stressors will be gone.

If you are having serious doubts about your Fiance, that’s another matter. But it doesn’t sound like you do, based on your post, and you are getting married for a reason!  Try to enjoy every single moment and laugh off the stressful ones 🙂  these past few months have been the most stressful of my life, but I’m still standing and excited, deep down, for my wedding!

This honestly sounds like a case of pretty typical, harmless temporary cold feet. My cousin went through the same exact thing about a month before the wedding. She had a rough week, had some dark thoughts, and then snapped out of it and had an amazing wedding and is now very happily married.

Only you know if the thoughts you’re having are more than cold feet, but from what you’ve written it doesn’t sound all that alarming. It’s totally natural to be emotional when you have all these stressful things going on. I definitely know the feeling. I went through a really stressful time (not wedding related) about a month ago and it just made me feel like a volcano ready to erupt at any moment….the slightest thing would set me off. And I’m normally super easygoing and level headed. 

anyway just take it one day at a time….this too shall pass!

bbanony:  I’m the same …. I’m used to being the organiser but suddenly I’m so tired of doing it and not having family around to help and Maid/Matron of Honor just caring about doing “her” and fiance taking forever (he is laid back) to do his couple of tasks and then there’s me doing it all. The only one feeling the pressure actually is my Mother-In-Law who has been really helping actuallY.

im currently crying like a loon in the bathroom because get this I asked for one thing from the shops – popcorn- and he bought everything but and I felt ahhh again I’m the only one that remembers and does things (rediculous and OTT I know )  and I read this and now at least I’m smiling that I’m not the only one!bim the same not sleeping as much and worrying about work and moving and being able to conceive and trying to get on property ladder and just so many things and family that are feuding. I just want my final week to be fun stressy and enjoyable with everyone.  I usually just get it done and do it myself but suddenly I want families help and input and it matters not getting it.

yet all I’ve wanted was to be married to him and for this day to come so I don’t want all this stress and rollwrcoaster up to the day!
