First off, breathe! You are getting ready to marry the love of your life! Can you delgate any of these tasks to your Maid/Matron of Honor, bridesmaid, Fiance, Best Man, etc? Delgate what you can and save yourself some stress. Take a bubble bath when you get home to try and relax. Maybe add some lavender to the warm since lavender can have many calming effects.

Yeah ask for help wherever you can.  Can you send mom of Bridesmaid or Best Man to france to get the booze?  Or have someone do some other errands for you?  Use your resources.  You need them!

I went through this exact same thing and one of the few things that helped (aside from lots of naps and ice cream) was going over the list with my then-FI.  I would make a list of EVERY single thing that I had to do or figure out.  I would get beyond overwhelmed and would start to panic and I would become miserable.  I started taking the list to my husband just to show him everything that I had to do – he ended up going over it with me and would point out how a certain task would only take 5 minutes to do, how we didn’t have to worry about X until later, how he could help with Y task, etc.  He was such a big help!

From then on any time I got overwhelmed with planning (and trust me, I understand about the list itself getting a gal frazzled) I would make a list and go over it with my husband.

Maybe that would work for you.  🙂
