- Wedding: January 2013
Hey girls, I just joined and am finding some comfort in (don’t take this the wrong way) your horror stories. I’m sorry, it’s just I literally feel like I’m the only one living in this crazy world and need to know I’m not alone!!! My poor fiance’ is at wit’s end with me because I’m literally losing my mind.
We got engaged about 2 months ago, getting married in 2.5, honeymooning in 7. I’ve done so much planning in the past 8 weeks it’s ridiculous. (Engagement pix, check. Venue, check. Dress, check. Colors, check. Officiant, check. Chair covers/sashes, check. Photog, check. Musicians, check. DJ, check. Bridesmaids/groomsmen, check. Cakes, check. Mothers, check. Favors, check. Save-the-dates, check. Invitations, check. Ceremony decor/programs/jewelry/hair/hotel/guest book thingy, not yet SMH…)
All this space in my brain has been reserved for the wedding but I’ve been SO focused on the wedding that I have no room for anything else!!! I’ve literally forgotten to run important errands or to pay certain bills, lost my apartment keys (only to waste $200 getting the locks changed and finding the lost keys 2 days later), gotten 2 traffic tickets (that I’ve kept to myself of course), lost countless hours of sleep, cried at the thought of a rainout (outdoor ceremony), had nightmares about color schemes, increased my budget like 3 times…. I can’t function anymore without a pad of post-its to keep me in line. I carry my wedding folder with me everywhere, along with my post-its in case an idea pops up. I just need a vacation!
I’ve found that when I eat I feel better (yes, I”m an emotional eater), but that’s all going to end very ugly when I’m trying to shed 15 lbs by the big day smh… Does ANYONE have advice on how to get back in touch with a sense of calm, or at least help me with my memory? Something’s got to give! To those of you who are engaged longer than 6 months, God bless you because there is NO WAY I would wish this madness on anyone for that long.
