I have over 14 months to my wedding and I feel as I need a break asap! But I can’t stop wedding planning and talking to vendors and setting up meeting and throwing my ideas out there for the world to hear. I am going to lost all of my hair by the time my wedding gets here from stress! AHHHHH

I totally feel ya on that one! I find that little 5 to 15 minute breaks really help – like walking to my car, spending a little longer than i should in the mail or copy room, and that type of thing. Breath and everything will be wonderful 🙂

Feeling the same way – COMPLETELY too much going on. Hang in there!

Oh I needed a break so bad a month out and there were none to be found! I was so busy at work, I was staying until like 7 or 8 every night all the while my Mom was constantly calling me asking me to do things and I was like “I jsut can’t!” It was a nightmare. When I finally had my ‘last day’ at work I had to just walk out with unfinished work because I had a train to catch!

I think the one month mark is when brides start to go insane, haha!
Labor Day weekend was just about a month from our wedding, so we took that extra day and hot the beach. We picked one that was about 90 mins outside the city so we could make an entire day of it. We left all our wedding supplies at home, and the rule was we couldn’t talk about wedding details or things we had to do that were wedding related.
It was AWESOME. It totally helped us get through that last hurdle.
Do you have any sick days? I’d totally call in sick if I were you,e specially if the stress is making you physically hurt. I mean, I consider mental health a reason to call in sick, and no one will have to know 🙂

Take some time to go on a date with you anf Fiance to give both of your minds a break.

I’m a little worried I will feel this same way. We planned our wedding for a week after graduation, so when I have a break from wedding plans I will have to focus on school/exams/boards exam. I am glad that I have something to look forward to directly after graduation though and it will be a very exciting time!

I felt the same way a couple months ago, because wedding planning was all I did, all I thought about. I literally put all of my wedding stuff away for a month and just gave myself a break! Then got right back into it full swing and accomplished so much in a short period of time. I know there really isn’t the time to just sit back and relax, but even if it’s just a night a week or something to spend with your Fiance, it will help out a lot! And before you know it, you will be relaxing as a married Bee on your honeymoon!
Good luck with the next month!

I feel exactly the same way! I just started a new job and there’s SO much to get done there that I have had 0 time for the wedding in the past week and I don’t see it getting in the two weeks before the wedding. Luckily, Fiance and Future Mother-In-Law have stepped in a lot and we did a lot in advance but I’m stressed to the max!

CAn you afford to do a spa treatment? Maybe a massage? IT would help and you would not need a day off (you could go on a Sat morning)

I have a HUGE event in NYC for my job on Sept. 16 that I am completely in charge of coordinating (Event Marketing, Geurilla Marketing, Social Media, PR, Celebrity Appearances, Giveaways, Sweepstakes…the whole thing). I basically told everyone that I cannot even think about the wedding until Sept. 17 (1 week before!!). Even better, I tried to take the entire week of the wedding off, but my boss said I at least had to come in on Monday and Tuesday to do recap reports and reconcile the budget. So I really can’t even focus on the wedding until Wednesday, Sept 22.
Talk about needing a break!!! AAAHHH!!

I definitely needed a break at some point. Just remember that not everything HAS to get done. Try to let go of some things that are consuming your time – DIY projects for example. Or try to delegate tasks to other people if possible. My mom and my Maid/Matron of Honor and my DH helped me cut and make our programs a few weeks before the wedding, There is no way I could have done it myself!! I wanted to put ribbon on all the programs but gave up after only doing 8 (out of 130) because I just didnt feel like it anymore!

I recommend Tums 🙂
Hang in there- it’ll all be worth it in the end!! Take a relaxing date night- or better- pizza and movie night 🙂 Just something low key and not wedding related.

I agree with the others, I found date nights to be SO good for me when I’m really stressed out. It helps to pull things back into focus and give your brain a break. Taking a few hours off will be good for you. I bet it’ll help your stomach too! I get stomach issues because of stress too, so I feel you!
