…and I’m so embarrased at myself. Poor Fiance. I preface this by saying I know I’m being irrational…but we are 3 days out from the wedding. I drove up to the reception yesterday to drop off some of our stuff and hand in the seating plan. Then, today, FI’s cousin calls and asks if he can bring this girl that he went to highschool with that he’s trying to make his girlfriend. I was at work when it happened, so I didn’t flip out there, but when I got home oh boy. Then Fiance says that one of his uncles can’t make it, so why don’t we move this other couple to that table to even it out…sigh. I know it’s not a big deal but I worked so hard on this stuff…I was enjoying being in that last coast thru it stage…I can’t wait for saturday so that I can go back to normal and not be a stressed out bride!

Take a deep breath and let it all go! Stop worrying about this stuff, because as you said it’s not a big deal! 🙂 Enjoy your last few days and let people help you!

Oh man! Talk about last minute changes! I think I’d be having a full blown meltdown before my Fiance reminded me to breathe! …. I think that’s also why he forced me to hire a week of, instead of day of coordinator actually….he’s a smart cookie somedays …
I wish you luck! At least it sounds like it will, logistically, work out!! I’m sure your wedding will be absolutely amazing!!

We had a few last minute changes like that too and it was soooo annoying! Just keep breathing and laugh it off. It’s all going to be ok. 🙂

oh I had one too…no worries. People are forgiving. I yelled at my mother in law to be. She is a sweet lady and got in my emotional crossfire. Whoops.

@HunnyBear: Screw the term bridezilla! Unless you’re an event planner, you’re likely planning the biggest party you will ever throw. You have loved ones coming in from all over the place to attend an event that you’ve been working on for ages. You’re stressed! In any other situation, if someone were planning a huge party and freaked out from the stress, we’d just write it off as normal. But when it’s a wedding, it’s suddenly a bridezilla moment. That’s crap.

Here’s to hoping this is the only flip-out worthy moment for the rest of your wedding planning!
For what it’s worth, I can’t wait to see pics of your wedding (we’re dress twins). I’m sure you will have a beautiful day. 🙂

Yup this is the time you have to try to let things like that go and pick your battles or choose not to have battles at all because they arent really worth it. The 3 days leading up to our wedding was the most hectic, busy and stressful time in all of wedding planning. However, I still had a great time with my family and friends and there were only a few small instances where anyone would have known that I was stressed! I made a conscious decision to enjoy myself all weekend and to just take everything as it was happening. Honestly during your wedding you wont even remember where couple A is sitting or was originally supposed to sit. It sucks that people pull last minute shit like this before a wedding but it happens so you just have to go with the flow!

I agree with redherring! It’s just stressful planning a big party like this, and when people make last-minute changes, it’s frustrating! You’re not a bridezilla.
