I totally lost it last week. But I’m taking things one at a time and they seem to be getting done. Hang in there, check things off the list. It’s going to work out.

I feel your pain. I just moved to a new city and started a new job.  I’ve got 28 days left. I can’t believe it’s coming up already.  I keep trying to tell myself not to stress and to just breathe.  It will get done because it has to get done.  No need to “stress” per se.  One thing at a time and the list will go away.  Then I run to the bathroom and pull my hair out from the stress.  I think this is normal.  We’re getting close and it’s just part of the experience…. I think…

I have been freaking out.  I ususally am not like this.  I will sound really b**chy to myself, it’s weird!  Fiance has been great about it.  Honestly I have been eating a lot of ice cream :/ which isn’t the best solution.  I have also been taking it easy, and going over details and making backup plans- that helps me relax -to have those under my belt.  I leave tomorrow!!  eek!

I had a stress attack this week. I cried over cakes and vases. It wasn’t pretty. Since then, I’ve prioritized and taken lots of deep breaths. 

My Fiance lost his job on Thursday so the stress skyrocketted again, but I’m holding it together. Today I’m getting a lot done, so hopefully crossing stuff off my list will feel good. πŸ™‚

You can do it @rabbit! Don’t panic.

@rabbit: Whenever I leave the mountains I miss them. They’re a part of my soul I think. My Fiance does computer stuff for a living. I’m sure he’ll have no probably finding another job – it’s just finding the right one that is tricky. I’m trying not to stress out about that since I have so much else going on!

I found some vases today that I liked so hopefully they’re going to work and I can stop stressing about them!

@rabbit: Yay for finding vases!! It’s such a relief to be able to check things off. 

@spaganya: I am getting to be the same way! I go through phases of really caring and then saying whatever I don’t care anymore!! I get lots done in those periods because I don’t agonize over ever detail πŸ™‚

@rabbit: LOL you can totally have her! want her number? she would be stoked to help LOL

 

@toothfairyb: same here – most of the stuff that NEEDS to be done is done already – the stuff that is left is really stuff that was DIY that i was thinking of doing as extra stuff, but at this point, i really dont care. it will be SUCH a relief to finally walk down the aisle and put all the planning behind me…

I am at the point where I don’t care if anything else gets done. Our outfits are perfect, we have the marriage license and so no matter what on Aug 21st we are getting married.

I no longer care about what I use for a card box, or escort cards etc. I was the Maid/Matron of Honor at my BF’s wedding last weekend and I just realized the details DON’T matter!

It’s a good place to be πŸ˜‰

I have 8 more stupid favor bows to tie…

The rest is DIY stuff that I would like to do (and have done most of)

I have to Mercury Glass the centerpieces… I think that is my last must do.

Oh yeah… work with my sister who is writing our ceremony…

Dance lessons… Fiance broke his sholder 2.5 months ago.  He is finally allowed to start moving it around and we will probably start dance lessons soon… we really need it.

 

I am not stressed out completely yet but I seriously don’t get stressed out about events (I plan events as part of my job) but I am going to a wedding this weekend and I think that I will go into overload after the weekend.

I’m feeling okay right now, but I know the panic isn’t too far away (I’m on the “relaxing” part of the roller coaster at this time). RSVPs are coming in, my escort cards are almost done (just waiting for the grandparents to get theirs in), I have a call into my cake guy to find out when the final payment and flavor decision is due, and I’m finalizing our event/catering contract this week. Hair and makeup trial is on Saturday. Second fitting is August 28 and then I’ll have to start looking for potted flowers to purchase for the centerpieces. That’s really the part that has me freaking out, because I don’t want to purchase too far out from the wedding, in case the plants start shedding their blooms.

But, I’m so ready for our minimoon, it’s ridiculous.
