I feel like I am having a really bad case of “bridal brain”, and my wedding is still over 8 months away!! How am I going to function from now till then.
I just feel like I keep dropping the ball on everything. I keep forgetting things, misplacing things, and being just so disorganized in so many aspects of my life.
* I totally forgot where I put my filled BC prescription that I had to get a new one filled just to start my new pack (and I keep forgetting to take my pills too, which is a totally different issue)
* My purse is a TOTAL disaster. I need to dump out all the contents just to find my cell phone
* My car is even worse. My trunk is just full of stuff I don’t have the energy to put away
I guess I just don’t feel like myself lately. I guess since I have so many things on the go, some items will slip, but it is getting really frustrating, and I can only imagine it will get worse over the next 8+ months.
Do you have any suggestions on how to clear my mind and fight my “bridal brain”

I would start by taking a few days off of anything wedding. Then, I would make sure that you are taking time for yourself. Take a bubble bath, read a book, get a mani-pedi, anything not wedding related, several times a week. My life has been so caotic lately that I absolutely had to download a good list app that worked with my calander. I got one that I can scan things into that I need, bought, and see that I want to look at. My list app actually reminded me that I had to pick up the boys from school the other day, I forgot that Darling Husband was working that day, thank goodness for that app.

@tksjewelry: I think your right. I need a wedding vacation. LOL Thankfully I am going on vacation in October, but for the time being I hate being so scatterbrained.
Which app did you download?

@MrsMermaid: a friend wrote it, it is in beta testing but there are a ton out there on the google store that mix tons of options in depending on how you use them.

@MrsMermaid: I think you need to unwind, relax without anything wedding related! Try to sort your purse, perscriptions out time to time, and organize em on a daily/weekly basis. It helps me alot from wedding planning to keep things in check. Also, read, do some nice things for yourself and stay away from any wedding planning 🙂
The best way to get a fresh start is to start getting more organized, like you said it will get worse if you don’t take a breather! Good luck!

YES a wedding vacation is definitely the way to go! When we were planning our wedding, I was definitely a mess. Weekend breathers off of wedding planning were always my favorite!

I went through something similar when I started planning for my wedding. I just felt like I could not get it together. I really thought at times that I was Bipolar. Make a space for your wedding because it is going to take over your life until the day it comes. That is just the way it is. I would suggest get some rest, set deadlines for task and do them, re-commit to you and your wedding planning and do the darn thing. When you are in overwhelm, allow yourself A DAY to get back on track. WRITE everything down. I keep a notebook in my purse for those random thoughts that come into my head. You will be fine. Just really get it together and clean up. Only you can do it.
