Maybe it’s the cold I’m suffering from, or maybe it’s just reality setting in. Either way, I’m freaking out more than usual. I was looking at things for the wedding and it occured to me that there isn’t much time until our wedding.Thinking of time led to thinking of things I needed to get done, which led to thinking of all I hadn’t finished. Thoughts upon thoughts of rough days ahead freaks me out. It’s like I’m standing next to a leaning tower, and it is slowly tipping over.
I need some serious stress relief, but I have no idea how. Help.

you have plenty of time! designate some days as completely wedding-free. don’t think about the wedding, don’t do anything for the wedding, and don’t come to this site. make to-do lists and a timeline and stick to it. prioritize what you need to do and when it needs to be done. you’ll be fine!!

You have tons of time to get things done. Promise. I freaked out too. Every bride does. It’s fine. In fact, the engaged for 4.5 months before the wedding me is totally jealous of your time.

We have plenty of time left (notice my wedding date)! I agree with kitzy, make a to-do list and prioritize things. I went through a minor panic also because I felt as if I was not working on any wedding stuff right now and realizing how much needs to get done but after I actually made a list and priortized when things needed to get done, I felt much better. I keep calling right now the calm before the storm.

I have 5 weeks left and I’m going through this phase of “it’ll all get done in time.” UH HELLO! Nothing will get done unless you work on it! :/ I realized this last night and I’ve kicked it back into crazy high gear.

@wgowood: Relax. Take a deep breath! You have plenty of time!!! Don’t worry because everything is going to fall into place and work out in the end. You’ll get everything done and your wedding day will be beautiful!
As for trying to stress relief I would suggest a visit to the chiropractor, a message and/or a facial. I never had a facial before but had one for my wedding and it was so relaxing. I frequently get messages to de-stress (I get tension headaches and it is the best natural way for me to deal with them) and always feel much more relaxed after. The chiropractor is also a great alternative if you feel that you are getting headaches.
