And so the meltdown begings, I had a total meltdown tonight telling my fiance I look like a sausage in my dress, how I don’t want to have a wedding, and that I just want to go on our honeymoon and be done with this (after spending 13k+ on our wedding). I need this to be done so I can just relax and have a good time on my honeymoon. *sigh*
I am losing my mind and am a crying, sobbing, whining mess.

Bless your heart, I’m so sorry. I’m sure you look beautiful in your dress and that your day will be lovely. I hope you know that it’s about you, him and spending the rest of your life together. Stay calm 🙂

@JanuraryGirl80: Im so sorry you are feeling this way! Try to remember its just the stress and pressure and exhaustion getting to you.
I have been having some crazy breakdown crying fits too and I really think we just don’t have perspective right now with everything going on.
I hope you’ll enjoy the wedding day after all your hard work, and im sure you’ll look beautiful!

Well, I suppose misery loves company, so I’ll throw in a big “me too!” here. Fiance and I had one meltdown together over the weekend, so at least that one is over and done with. Now he’s perfectly fine, but I’m stuck here dealing with all of the crazy and not-very-nice family members, and their attitudes are starting to take their toll. I’m not normally a crier, and I’m certainly able to hold my own under normal circumstances. But when I get phone calls — like from my mother, this morning — that start with “Good morning!” and she responds with a barrage of compaints, insults, and general temper tantrum… I’ve just about HAD IT. I could use a shoulder to cry on, to be honest, but there isn’t anyone I can even vent to (except here, I guess).
I’m sure everyone is right when they tell you, me, and all of us nutty brides that we’ll be fine on the wedding day, but it’s hard not to wish for some calm prior to that point. Deep breathing hasn’t helped, so it’s time for Phase 2: wine and chocolate.

Yeah wine and chocolate sounds good to me. I have to work up until thursday afternoon and then I am done but I am about to pull my hair out because family and friends keep calling and texting me questions about the wedding and I HAVE WORK TO DO!!!!!!
We will get through this!
We have to keep saying that!
It’s good to know that we are not alone in our meltdowns.

@JanuraryGirl80: I hope you are feeling better! If it helps I was like this in the week leading up to the wedding too. It didn’t help that we had a house full of guests at our house, and overseas visitors at our parents.
In the week leading up to the wedding I would cry at anything and Fiance and I had a few disagreements. He ended up taking me out to dinner a few times just the two of us and that helped a lot to be away from everyone else. I also ended up taking sleeping tables a few nights in the week before – sleep is usually never a problem with me but we had a very loud 2 year old staying with us who got up very early and I was going to bed late to finish up all last minute projects and was getting very overtired!
@BostonBaby: Wine and chocolate definately help!
I know its hard to believe but for me the day of the wedding was absolutely fine! You girls have spent so long thinking about and planning your weddings and I hope you can relax and enjoy it on the day 🙂
