It will be slightly less than a 10 month engagement.I get stressed and irked and everything else (a wide array of emoions) but Fiance and I take walks every night. I also make sure I dropped all wedding stuff when I felt myself getting upset.

It seems like nothing will come together, and now all of a sudden 3 days before I am set to get married things are doing what they should do, and I couldn’t be happier! I can’t wait to see it all that day!

HA! Sunfire…

@Sunfire:  hahaha!

I know I’m stressed out right and mine is still over a year away! I am the type of person that looks at the whole picture at once as opposed to every little step along the way, so it is so incredibly overwhelming and stressful for me right now. I am trying to work on just focusing on one aspect at a time. Whenever I start getting stressed my Fiance can tell and he will do something fun with me where I just stop thinking about the wedding for a short while. I always feel better after I have a little break from thinking about it.

@Sunfire: YES!

@roweboat:  Try to delegate certain tasks to other people, have your mom create the programs and get the favors, have your Future Mother-In-Law do seating charts, etc. 

Also, every week go do something for yourself, get your nails done, take a long bath etc and devote a day where you mention nothing wedding related. 

Best of luck!

There’s a few options I would suggest: Take a break from wedding planning. Yes, at least a week or two where you’re not talking or thinking about wedding planning.  Another option? Simplfy things or cut down on your plans: Have a simpler meal, decor plan, fewer guests and more free help if possible etc.   Last option: just elope!

Deletate!  Your bridal party should be willing/able to help.  I started planning in February and my wedding is in September.  I did as much as possible in the beginning, and I’m having my fiance and bridesmaids help me with the rest.  It will all come together!

@Sunfire:  +1

Chocolate is also pretty nice too, although makes it tough to slim down in the final weeks before the wedding, I’m finding lol.

I agree with others – delegate. Find out who is willing to help, and assign them to certain duties. This doesn’t all have to be on your shoulders. Make a list, and decide on what you want to get done every week. Also, take time to treat yourself too.

Lists!  Make a list of what you have left to do – what follow ups you need to do (emails, payments, etc.), and how much you owe your vendors.  Seeing it all out on paper helped calm me down (while drinking wine, of course) Wink
