@Evie19: Aww, I’m sorry you are so stressed out. I had a crazy florist, so I understand your frustrations. Good of you to keep your composure and work through the meeting with your florist. It sounds like she did a good job of accommodating you in the moment and it is tough when flowers aren’t in season. Great that you’ll have a follow-up meeting 3 weeks before the wedding. That ought to do the trick just fine.

In the meantime, I’m a little worried for you and those dizzy spells. Think it is worth a trip to the doctor just to be safe? Don’t want to frighten you or get all motherly LOL but trying to look out for you. Best wishes and keep breathing… πŸ™‚

Oh honey, please take care of yourself!  Maybe find an outlet to release that stress so it doesn’t have such horrible (and scary) manifestations?

There was a time in grad school when I was working for a not-so-nice person and there were times when I’d just drop and do 50 crunches or leave and walk the longest hallway in the building four times. 

Is there a way for you to do something like that?  Just short, little bursts of physical activity might release some tension.

A guided meditation CD (just 10-15 minutes) might also help.

I hope you’re feeling better.

I realize that you expected to see a finished mockup, but flowers can be finicky, non?  Since they’re not in season just yet, and she was able to put something together right in front of you that resembled what you ultimately want, that’s a good sign of her skill. 

It looks like you’ve got 2 months to go.  Good luck!

Flowers were so important to me too, and it took me forever to decide on a florist that did amazing work at my price point. I can understand how unnerving it would be to see a pile of green when you expected a lovely mock-up of what you were expecting. The fact that she did pull somethingsimilar together for you to see should help to ease your mind. I can’t tell you how many times I got stressed out at my vendors only to have them pull thru with amazing results on my wedding day. I have no doubts that your florist will do the same.

I get dizzy spells too when I’m ultra stressed out. I found that laying off the caffeine, deep breathing and yoga helped me to remain in control- also making sure I was getting enough calories and keeping my blood sugar from dropping too low during the day. Keep a little snack on hand with you and try to eat it if you feel yourself getting dizzy. I hope you feel better! Everything will turn out!

I would make a doc appt just to make sure everything 100% ok.

If you feel it’s coming from stress, make sure you drink plenty of water and take time-outs from wedding planning/wedding talk/wedding anything. I know it’s hard but you need some personal space away from wedding-world to regroup.

::hugs:: I’m so sorry that you’re stressed out. πŸ™ Good for you for sticking to your guns during that meeting though! I’m sure she will be amazing but you were clear about your expectations and she didn’t provide initially. Silly vendors.

Will you get a chance to have a breather while you’re in the states? A day off from all things wedding to get away and do something fun?

Sorry about the florist…at least you were able to come to a compromise and work it out!

It could be blood sugar…but it could also be your blood pressure. Either way I would go get checked so that you know for sure which it is.
