Thanks Camrie that’s what I was thinking. Running out of time and it’s stressing me. I’m totally good otherwise. We’re spending alot of money on her and she should be doing her job.

@Amarus: I so FEEL you.  I just nailed my caterer to the phone today and forced a final menu on him.  10 days, people.  Time to make this a priority.  (The one who really needs this lecture is FH…)

@Amarus: Holy crap are you kidding me?! That’s insane! It’s not like something you like might not be in season. Jeez. What’s her excuse?! That’s ridiculous. Is there time to find someone else do you think? Did you have a second choice at the beginning?

It sounds like everyone is really stressed out!

So here is some advice! RELAX! everything will work its self out. and if something isn’t absolutely as you expected/wanted it to be, you will be the only one who notices!

That said… realize that everything will not be perfect. something will go wrong. But chances are you will not remember it in 20 year, heck you won’t remember it in 5, and if you do… what a great story!! your grandkids will love hearing about how granny’s hair was died blue the day before her wedding, and it was so hot the cake melted right off the table!

REMEMBER 1 THING-

you will not remember the day, but you will remember how you felt! So get excited and start enjoying everything. Laugh at yourself and the fact that your wedding planner awall!

If anyone needs some perspective feel free to vent to me I can do my best to help any and all panicked brides! I had my moment a few weeks ago before making this realization

@Miss Red Velvet: I have the opposite problem, I have questions for my caterer … and apparently he is away until September 7 🙁 His chef wasn’t too helpful. So I’m just a sitting bride until he gets back.

@septcabride: I hear you! FH and I had a long talk on the way back to the cottage that I now need him to make the wedding a priority. The long weekend (next weekend) is when they shut down the cottage, and I mentioned at the beginning of the summer that Future In-Laws weren’t going to be able to count on FH to be around to help out. Not only is it two weeks before the wedding, it is also my 25th birthday. Sure enough, there is still a lot of running around to do and I need his help on Sunday but he feels he should go to the cottage to help shut it down. I think he understands he needs to stay in the city. Future Father-In-Law said if he needed help, he could hire one of the guys on the lake.

 

Overall, things are going well. I’m distracted by FHs birthday (Tuesday) and my own birthday next weekend (Saturday), which offers a nice distraction.

We hit a snafu with my wedding band, that wasn’t really anyones fault, but the jewellery store had to remake it from scratch … so that won’t be back until next week, and hopefully it is perfect.

The DJ hasn’t responded to my email from earlier in the week, so I’ll be calling him tomorrow.

I need to really really do a timeline for the reception for the MCs this week. And make a list of all the last little doodads that need to get picked up.

I highly recommend some pre-wedding yoga for those of you who are getting down to the wire.  I went tonight and it did WONDERS for my mental state.

Interesting side note – at the end of class, the (married) woman next to me complimented me on my ring.  When I told her that I was getting married next weekend and a bit stressed, she said, “I get that.  But just wait, next week you’ll be married!  And then the hard work will start.”

Hmm.  I have been thinking a lot about that since class.  And, you know what?  She’s right.  I need to stop stressing about the already-planned-to-death big day and just breathe.  Because cultivating a loving, life-long relationship is just so much more important.
