As the wedding gets closer I am seriously turning into a raging *****
- One of my friends has asked me THREE times about the hotel block. She lost the invite insert, then she lost my email, and now I just had to resend it on facebook. Like…WTF!
- A groomsman (out of state) asked about where and when he needs to pick up his tux. We told them MONTHS ago that they can pick it up at the closest shop to them, and it needs to be 2 days before the wedding. This was told to them in person and through email. Why oh why is that so difficult to grasp?
- My mother…….I just can’t even. As of right now she will be attending the wedding naked. She hasnt bought a dress and everytime my sister or I ask her about it she says “dont worry about it”. She also hasnt booked a hotel, and the special rate ends next week. She lives 2+ hours away.
- RSVP’s are due next week and we are missing more than half. I know that is very common, but it’s just sending me into a rage.
There are so many more, but I am starting to sound like a crazy person. i know there are such minor things, but my anxiety and stress together are turning me into a lunatic.
So…what is driving you girls crazy this week?

Definately RSVP’s. They were due 2 weeks ago, and now we have people telling us that they will “try to make an appearance”. Um, no, it’s yes or no. So they’re getting ticked at us because they can’t crash the wedding.

Take a breather hon everything that is going wrong will not bother your day. If your friend doesn’t have a hotel room, well too bad for her. If the groomsmen doesn’t get the tux, well he is out whatever he put down on deposit and he kicked himself out of the bridal party. I am certain your mother will find something to wear, a Mother would not skip her daughters wedding because of attire. Our due date for rsvp’s was earlier this week, we are still missing 20 people, I like to think that they are in the mail. If they aren’t then Fiance has to call them because 4 people are my side, ther other is his.
I hope you feel better soon.

That it’s not 5PM yet. lol Also, the weather is driving me nuts. It does not need to still be in the high 70s and 80s here. It’s mid-September ffs. GIVE ME FALL WEATHER DAMN YOU. Oh, and some of the people who call here. I say my name when I answer the phone as a courtesy. You do not need to ask the person to whom I transfer you what my name is. You don’t need my name at all, in fact. It’s weird when the guys pick up a call and I hear, “Oh, Brandy?” ARGH.
However, GIANT hugs, @Bostongrl25. Those things would really irritate me, too; I HATE having to repeat myself, especially about important information that I expect people to remember.

I’m not panicking just yet, or going crazy.

I just thought of what is driving me crazy. It’s my daughter the bride. She isnt nervous or stressed at all because Mom is handling all of this for her.

Sounds like you could use a nice big glass of wine 🙂 I have similar stressors, just not that intense yet… but I’m a little further out than you- I’m sure I’ll get there!!! You don’t know your friends until you need to depend on them and then you realize how irresponsible they really are!! lol

…I’m so jealous! It would be lovely to be planning a wedding just now, or a celebration of any kind….I’m sorry your so stressed out, please take some time for yourself and find your smile in all of this…it’s a wonderful time in any woman’s life, and it’s those shining moments that carry us through darker days…I speak from experience, the things that are bothering me this week are far more frightening and harder to fix, I envy you!

My FIL’s…all of them really at this point.
My guestlist that I finalized months ago being adjusted by everyone else but me.
Random people getting angry because they weren’t invited. And I do mean random. And really angry.
Take a (well deserved) break, cut off communications for a few hours if you have to, and enjoy yourself with whatever you want to do! Hang in there!!
