I’m so sick of this whole wedding process I want to be done with it. Things are “okay” now in terms of drama but I’M DRAINED!
I no longer love my accessories (I got them all to work with a sash I bought for my dress and now don’t like the sash.. so everything from my headpiece to my earrings and shoes I’m re-thinking) I can’t decide what to do with my hair or makeup, I don’t feel like working on ANYTHING I’m just so… over it. I’m tired. I need a pep talk, I don’t feel happy with any of my choices… I just don’t feel like anything looks as good as I thought, I don’t feel like I’m looking as good as I thought. I don’t know I’m in a serious funk.
And I’m tired. please make me feel better 🙁

@mayflowerbride13: You need a vacation, girlfriend.
I’ve been following your posts for months and I can’t say I blame you for being drained!!!

Yes I agree – I think you need a little break away from wedding planning. It is one day and I can tell you however wonderful it is there will be other amazing days in your life!
You shouldn’t be getting so worked up and unhappy because you won’t enjoy yourself and you run the danger of coming back down to earth with a huge thud after the wedding!
Take a little rest then post all your details here for us to peruse – a few compliments from the lovely bees will go a long way towards making you feel much much better!

@mayflowerbride13: Take a break… have a glass (or a bottle) of wine, and then go to bed by 9pm. If you aren’t tired, have more wine (and water to prevent a hangover). Then when you wake up run, go to the gym, do something. It helps reduce your stress.
The best advice I got about wedding planning is that it is one F***ing day. Who cares if you love your dress? How many days in a month do you love the dress you are wearing? How many days a month do you think your hair or your makeup look absolutely amazing. It is just one day, so don’t worry about it.
Also, I am not sure of your financial situation, but if you are comfortable, I recomment my FI’s, can you throw money at it? approach. How much would it cost to fix your sash/accessory problem? Is that much worth it to make you feel better? If so, and you can afford it, spend the money.

@mayflowerbride13: This happens to us all, in whatever times we live through, every woman gets to a point where she just HATES everything around her….and it’s not a reflection of dissatisfaction or unhappiness…you just wanna hate on some stuff for a while…the only is cure is something completely new, frivolous and possibly expensive…I find that a new handbag with matching shoes does wonders for me when I’m all grumped out, then I’ll go to my stylist and say, “I hate everything about my hair…dooooo something with it.” which he does, and then I treat myself to a day at the spa…at which point I finally begin to feel like my old self again…do something, anything, but for the love of god…not wedding stuff, you’re all full up in that department

@Pollywog: LOL…love your wine remedy
At Mayflower, is that your real wedding date? If so, no wonder you are stressed! Just step away from all of it, even for 24 hours so you can look at it all again with fresh eyes. Also, I asked my fiance to help me decide when I was unsure of something. He was my biggest supporter 🙂

@canarydiamond: I’m 2.5 weeks away from a girls trip to Vegas… I’m a clinging to that thought just to stay sane lol
@Blackie: Will do, I actually have a few pictures /DIYs I’ve been planning on posing for feedback. Maybe after this weekend!
@Pollywog: Friday night we’re taking a break. Comedy club.. lots of drinks for me.. then I plan on finishing the night in my Roman Tub.. which I have NEVER used since moving in… 2.5 yrs ago!
@Nona99: I WILL step away… after this week. Today I’m meeting with our minister (my aunt) to go over ceremony stuff, then dance with my dad (for our father-daughter) and then tomorrow is our tasting and dance with my Fiance (for our first). after that I’m taking 2 days off, but my schedule says I need to be back at it by Sunday 🙁
@beb1972: My actual date is a bit earlier lol.. May 4th. AHHHHH. One of my bigger problems now is hair/makeup/accessories… Fiance can’t help with that a) because he doesn’t want to know what I look like that day and wants to be surprised (I want him to be surprised as well) b) he doesn’t have the greatest taste in that department lol
