My mom happened to be the one who called me when I was starting to feel really stressed and I’m crying as I type this now. I was hoping to never become bridezilla, but as the day gets closer (and my monthly friend is on it’s way) I’m feeling more and more stressed.
Tips to get through it?

well, she’s your mom 🙂 i’m sure she can grasp the level of stress you’re under…take a deep breath, give her a call, apologize, and if you have time, take her to lunch. (but i’m sure you know that lol)
just stay calm! idk anything about your wedding, but are people helping you with stuff? do you have a favorite de-stress ritual you do? (preferably one w/o anything to do with the wedding lol)

Breathe. It’ll be OK! Don’t worry!
It might help to just walk away from the whole thing for a few hours. Go for some exercise, or a mani. If there’s too much to do, try to delegate something to your bridal party or Fiance.
Your mom will understand. Call her in a bit.

@JessLee83: FI is being really great and helping me when I need it, my Maid/Matron of Honor (only sister) is always willing to help, but another Bridesmaid or Best Man is completely useless and last Bridesmaid or Best Man lives in another province. It’s not even things that need to get done that’s bothering me, it’s all the questions my family is calling about. I’m annoyed they can’t figure out their accomodations and stuff themselves.
@atalante: I’m going to go for a walk on my lunch break since I’m at work. I’m hoping being alone and thinking will help me through it and then I’ll give her a call to apoligize.

Breathe slow and try not to think about wedding planning. Things are coming together, and you’re almost done! 🙂 I’ve had a few moments this week, but a lot of times you may just be thinking it’s worse than it is because you are feeling so stressed. Luckily I’m finishing up my period, or the wedding would be an emotional suckage.

I was a Bridezilla this weekend when Fiance, my dad, and my mom went out to eat. We were trying to figure out what to do now that our destination wedding plans fell through, and next thing I knew, I was shouting, on the verge of tears, and even my dad was staring at me like I had 9 heads. I don’t know where it came from, but I suddenly…LOST IT!
A few days later I called my mom and said I felt bad for getting so upset and she said she understood and wanted me to understand that weddings are difficult and stressful no matter who you are. Your mom will forgive you. She understands. Just apologize once you cool off.

Assuming you have a good relationship with your mom, you probably freaked out on the best possible person. Don’t stress too much about your overreaction. That will just make you even more stressed. Try as best you can to take your mind off of all things wedding for a few hours. That might include not reading Weddingbee. 🙂
