Do you do yoga? If not, sign up NOW. Seriously- it was my saving grace throughout the wedding planning period.

It will get better, and afterwards, you’ll have that awesome “Ahhh. I don’t have to do any more stupid planning- whoo-hoo!” You can get through this!!! 🙂

Take a day and just do NOTHING with wedding stuff. I know it might seem like you are wasting time but I’ve found that it sometimes helps to do nothing with what is causing you stress if you can afford the time.  Best of luck.  It does get better.  🙂

@Mrs.Lotus:  I agree.

I took a week off from wedding planning & it was awesome and so needed. You should give that a shot.

@Kristyn02:  I’m sorry you’re feeling that way.  Go get yourself some Mario’s Pizza (mmmmmm) and relax for a day.  No wedding talk at all!

No more Facebook posts, it will cause unnecessary drama and hurt feelings (the last thing you need it sounds like).

Go on a wedding strike. 2 full days of nothing wedding related.

OP, I get it. This morning I was so OVER my wedding. Last night my Future Father-In-Law told us he wanted an additional 70 guests to represent their side of the family. I nearly tore my FI’s head off for not wrangling in his parent’s constant commands. Then I went onto theknot to check to-do list and there was nearly 75+ things left. I went into panic mode and totally shut down. I ended up calling in sick to work, spent the day lounging in bed, drank some tea, and played with my niece and nephews. Tomorrow I decided to make a list of the major items and tackle it one by one. Then I plan to sit my Fiance and MoH (my sister) down and start assigning tasks. OP, this is all doable. The stress can be alarming at times, but keep your head up and keep the your eye on the big picture. Good luck!

I agree about having some wedding blackout time. Schedule it if you have to. Get a massage and a facial, work out, eat some pizza, nap, have some wine, or do whatever else you have to in order to turn off your wedding brain and find some calm. And just know that if something doesn’t get done in the end or someone complains about something stupid, you’ll still end the day happy, married, and in love!

Where are your bridesmaids/family members who will give you a hand?

and this is why I would hide from my phone for hours at a time during the week of my wedding.  You are not alone.

agree with PPs-the wedding-free weekend will do wonders for you. Also agree about keeping the wedding talk off FB-people could take it the wrong way, and you don’t need more drama.
