I just went to go pick up my dress today because I’m taking bridals next Saturday and it doesn’t fit!  Thankfully she thinks she found enough fabric to stretch it out that extra inch so I dont have to put in a corset.

maniccupcake:  Uggghhhh my whole house is a shit-tip, I’ve got half-finished wedding projects everywhere and suddenly NOW my mother wants to see all the planning spreadsheets I’ve done, and I’ve got to move house in a month (less than three weeks before the wedding, the same week we’ve got the wedding rehearsal and the meeting with the photographer), and my FH is no help because he’s due to submit his PhD thesis at the end of this month, but at the same time he’s also got to start applying for postdocs and write research proposals so he’s just totally useless for anything practical right now, AND  I got a giant spot on my chin two days ago that you couldn’t see but was huge and really hurt and so I squeezed it because it was so painful and it was right by my mouth so it hurt when I spoke, and now it’s turned into this giant awful scab like ugggghhh. But it doesn’t hurt anywhere near as much any more, I guess, so that’s a plus.

 

Once the move is over I will be fine. But uggghhh.

I am also a mess!  My wedding is October 25th, and I’m starting to feel a lot of stress/anxiety.  One of my biggest casue of stress is my invitations. I wanted them out by the 25th of August at the latest, but I underestimated how long it would take me to get them done, so they still aren’t out. We also did not Save the Dates, so there are a few distant relatives that may be unaware of the wedding.  According to just about everything I read, they say you want them out between 6-8 weeks, which I’m still within, but I wanted to start getting RSVPS sooner so that I could send invites to my “B” list. Another cause of stress is just worrying about the flow of the day. I’m trying to get a schedule/timeline worked out, but it’s not putting me at ease.  I’m also starting to nitpick at things like my centerpieces and invitations.  I don’t have my hairstyle picked out yet, and I won’t be doing a trial until a week before the wedding. I also don’t have my veil yet, or jewelry.  There are I don’t even know how may items on my month-by-month checklist that I have not done yet.  I’ve been staying up late working on things, because when I lay down to sleep my mind races thinking about all the stuff that I have to do.  I’ve had people at my job who only see me ever so often tell me that it looks like I’m losing weight. I know it may sound like a good thing, but I am small enough as it is, so I need my weight. Not to mention the fact that I don’t want to have to have my dress altered.  I also feel bad becasue I’ve been neglecting my fiance for the past few days.  I hope things get better for me after I get the invitations out.

I just want to give a big internet hug to everyone!

I haven’t been emotional yet but when I realize that the wedding is 36 days away, I get panicky over all the little things left to do and things I can’t do until I get my RSVPs back.  I gave my guests until the 15th to reply but with 10 days left to go, there’s only 40 people out of the ~160 that are coming to the wedding including me and Fiance. Lol!

maniccupcake:  I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve been asked if I’m pregnant as a result of being overly emotional lately!

maniccupcake:  Oh I am a hot mess as of late…Im up then down…then a ball of nerves…mostly i keep waking up in cold sweats that ive forgotten something important…like last night i had a horrific nightmare that I woke up in a cold sweat that we had gotten to the reception and not only did in my dream i forgot to pay the caterer so she didnt come….but I didnt get get enough chairs….and had no drinks, napkins or forks even for the cake….so all we had was bottles of wine and a cake with no utensils….no where near as bad as the one i have where i get up to the alter and forget my FIs name….

I have about 40 lists on my desk of things I have to get done and when I have to get them done…its out of hand….Our whole house is taken over by wedding things….I am really going to have to figue out what to do when our bm and moh get here because 2 of our 3 spare bedrooms are full of wedding stuff….its only going to get worse when i pick up my dress in 3 weeks….because i will have Bridesmaid or Best Man, Flower Girl, and my moms and FMILs dresses at our house….and the worst thing is….I get a little OCD about our house…I like it cleaned and organized….and it stresses me out when its not…

so i have the stress of our wedding being 30 osme days to our wedding and my house is a wreck….and We have company comming the week before the wedding, plus i have to work and do a chemo class 2 weeks before the wedding….sooo yup I am a complete trainwreck! oh and the tail ends of pms are not helping!

FutureMrsMonit:  Oh thank goodness! I am not the only one!! I get two responses…. “ohh you are just soo emotional”….or “oh your just glowing”….which when you are 4 days before your final fitting you automatically assume it means “i asked if you were pregnant because you need to step away from the cookie”….but mostly i get the emotional response….because normally i keep that stuff on lock down….I cried infront of Future Father-In-Law for the first time in 8 years….he was shocked!

I’m October 4th too!  And no you are not alone.  I totally understand the show Bridezillas now because this time is so stressful and emotional. ( well maybe some of those brides are extreme…)  I cried today because people I thought for sure would be coming don’t even have the decency to send back a yes or no RSVP.  Anyone else having that problem?  I just feel like no one cares about my wedding.  But I guess I was naive to think everyone loved us 🙂 Are any other October 4 brides getting the lame duck hunting opener excuse?  

hope your stress level gets better.  I keep wondering what I’m going to do with myself after the wedding because right now there’s always so much to do!!
