i’m so sorry that you are stressed.  absolutely everything you wrote is exactly how i felt just a few months ago.  but you know, you work through it and you get those million things done.  i’m just a few weeks out now, and i already feel so much better.  no more stress about so much because it’s already done.  it really does get much better, i PROMISE!!

have a glass of wine and do nothing wedding related for a few days and you’ll start to feel much better!!

I’m having a small intimate wedding and I want to just go to the courthouse.  Its not just you.  Wedding planning is just stressful and occupies too much of our time. 

Take a much needed break as well as ask for assistance.  Delegation is such a great tool!!!!

Just try and relax.  It will all come together!  I was feeling the same way about three months out.  What helped me was to make a list of what I needed to do and ranked them in order of importance.  For instance, I needed to find a florist, but I could skip making cute “bride” & “groom” signs for our reception chairs if need be.  And in the end I needed to skip making those signs.  I was bummed I didn’t get to them, but the most important stuff was done & I didn’t even notice the tiny things I didn’t have time to do.  Also, ask your friends/family/fiance to help out.  I wish I had started doing that 3 months out instead of the last week before the wedding!

Honestly, I felt that way until my wedding day. They’re stressful, and I have never planned a big event like that before so I didn’t know if I was doing it right or missing things. But of course the wedding was beautiful and I did all that worrying for nothing, so try to relax and enjoy it a bit! (I know, way easier said than done.)

What helped me manage the stress (and stop obsessing about eloping) was realizing the “WHY” behind why I wanted to have a wedding in the first place.

It really helped me embrace the wedding-crazy and continue with plans.

Also – if you haven’t already sent invites – are you sure you can’t make the guest list smaller?  If anything, make sure your venue can hold the people you are having.  And – don’t try to tackle everything at once.  Just attack one thing at a time (like venue capacity) and go from there.

YOU CAN DO IT!

Don’t let the guest list beat you down.  It will all work out.  I have 40 days left and everyday I say, “I can’t wait to be done”  and I don’t think I even have much left to be stressed about. We have a huge guest list too and more seem to be adding on.  I’m always like how are we going to feed everyone but I know it will work out.  It will be over before you know it.
