I’m normally quite an emotional person anyway, but the last few weeks I have been having huge ups and downs – like amazingly happy to stupidly depressed in one day. Honestly, it’s like I have PMT all the freaking time!
We’re 3 days away from the wedding now and last night I just had this total meltdown. Me and Fiance were talking about something unrelated and I completely overreacted and just burst into tears – full on sobbing. Fiance isn’t the best at dealing with emotions so he didn’t know what to do to help and it all spiraled out of control and I couldn’t calm down for ages. Once I had cooled off I felt terrible for having taken my stress out on him again and I apologised over and over, I felt dreadful.
I feel like the run up to the wedding should be really happy and sometimes I am, but other times I’m uncontrollably upset and I don’t know what to do! What if I’m like this on my wedding day? What if he decides I’m just this crazy woman and he doesn’t want to marry me after all?
Were any of you like this in the run-up to the wedding? If you were, did you still manage to be blissed-out-happy on the day? It would be great if any of you could give me your help or advice on how to handle this. I feel like I’m turning into a crazy person!!

Oh, sweety, i am so sorry you’re feeling this way :-(..I guess it’s normal, from my zero experience, that is. I have had terrible moments of stress a couple of weeks ago and i lashed out at my sister and mum (they weren’t at their best either), which left me devastaded..then, incredibly, i calmed down once i realized i had everything under control. Do you? Do you have everything under control? If so, just, please RELAX! Take a loooooong bubble bath, go out and have a nice strong tea with a friend and if the weather permits, sit under a tree and fell the wind in your hair (sorry, these are the things that DO calm me!!)
Guess what, Fiance is leaving for Polland a week before the wedding and i can’t believe how calm i still feel! Completely weird!!!
Hugs, bee, you are not alone walking the last few days before your wedding. It’s gonna be just fine

I was the same way the week leading up to my wedding. I honestly think the stress just gets the best of you. Try to remember that this is temporary and just try to relax. If you are still having trouble after the wedding, I’d recommend going to talk to your doctor. Big hugs!

I would say its totally normal. Weddings are STRESSFUL. Even good stress is stress. I have been married before and I was completely stressed the week before and the day of was stressful until I getting ready to walk down the aisle. Then I just had to let the little things go and I enjoyed the rest of the day with my friends and family.

@Rivendeler: Yeah, I DO have everything under control – which is what is so weird. I figured once we got this close and I had everything done I’d be much more chilled out, but it just hasn’t happened. I’ve got tomorrow off work and I’ve got the morning free, so the “sit under a tree” plan sounds good!
Thanks, it’s good to hear that others have experienced something similar. I really just need to try to relax… <takes deep breath> I love my Fiance so much, and it’s so unfair of me to take my stress out on him!

It sounds like stress. With such a big event coming up you’re probably feeling like there’s a million things that need to be done or could be done. Just remember the situation is under control and take a breath. I know many of the bee’s have taken spa days to themselves in the days leading up to the wedding and have highly recommended taking a little bit of time for yourself. Go get a massage if you have some spare time and relax! Good luck!
