Last evening I had my first meltdown in front of my loving Fiance due to a combination of a lot of things aside from just last minute detail planning for our wedding that’s to take place in 2 months and 6 days! Time just slipped away and realized that our invitations hadn’t been ordered until last Friday evening. Awaiting second proof of the invitations before it goes to printing and getting very very anxious. A timeline of 7 months to plan our wedding and I’m realizing that there’s still more of the small details to work through as time is ticking. There’s moments I feel like I can’t catch my breath when I look at my yet to do list. Are there any other bees feeling this way? Please tell me I’m not the only one.

I’m halfway through a 6 month engagement and just a couple days ago I posted somewhere on here about how stress free I was…
Then this weekend I had a breakdown myself haha. Partly over small undecided details adding up but mainly because we had a meeting with our officiant that my fiancé’s mom set up (we live out of town of our wedding location). I didn’t like any thing about the wedding “script” he put together. I told him I would revise it and then we could meet again. The second he walked out the door my fiancé knew I was unhappy and asked me if I was ok and I burst into tears. Luckily my fiancé is understanding and we’re going to work on a script together this week and it will be fine in the end.
I just keep trying to remind myself that the little details aren’t the end of the world if I don’t get to some of them. Nobody will care if the placecards aren’t as fancy or if I didn’t DIY as much as I wanted to.

It comes in waves for me where I’m totally freaking out.. then zen like calmness! We are 42 days out from the wedding but are taking a 20 day vacation into the lead up of our Destination Wedding.. So technically I only 22 days to get stuff sorted. EEEeeek! Right now I’m in a panicked state over how to manage my dress whilst travelling. I think I may just DHL it to our planner (cue hyperventilation when I think of all the things that could go wrong with that plan!)

I had my first real meltdown last night as well. (more to come in a minute)
I luckily got pretty much everything done in a couple weeks. I planned our wedding WAY before becuase I just loved wedding and I knew I would be paying, so I had to start looking for good deals. I also love having things to do, so I made tons of appointments close together. The only thing I have to wait on is venue and invites. We are military so we don’t know an exact date yet. Plus I make lots of lists, they really help 🙂
A couple weeks ago I got my dress and a veil. I loved them both. A week later I went to the same shop for my birdesmaids and saw a veil I overlooked and it looked like it would go with my dress much better. So they set it aside for me to do an exchange. I went back yesterday to do the exchange and they said they needed the receipt. My mom bought it so I didn’t have it, so I just stood there speachless. I had already had a bad day at work and wasn’t expecting that answer, I was also on a tight schedule. I just wanted my new veil. Then she must have picked up on me about to cry, so she tried digging for the recipt and price for store credit and couldn’t find it. So I had to buy my new veil full price and take the other one home too. I went home and cried. What was I going to do with two veils? And I couldn’t just leave the other one there.
My mom finally found the receipt though and I was able to return it. At first they sounded like they could only give me store credit, which I was not happy about seeing as everyone’s dress was already bought so I’d just have to buy something random. But she fixed it and I was able to get it credited back to me. 🙂

The last 3 months is when everything needs to come together and thats when EVERYONE panics.
I had a year long engagement and was cool as a cucumber until the last 3 months. I was still very calm, but I had my inner panic attacks about all of the things I needed to still do.
Don’t worry, it will all happen and it will be great! 🙂
