Is it just me, or is anyone else starting to alternate between panic and total elation as they get close to the wedding date? I don’t think it really hit me until we moved our wedding date up to this summer, and while on the one hand I just can’t wait to be married to him, on the other hand I seem to be prone to these weird and unexpected panic attacks about whether everything is going to go as planned.
Some moments I’m just overwhelmed by how much I love him, and in awe that a human being can feel this way for another.
An hour later my heart is racing: "Oh God! A wedding! I can’t do it! It’s too much!" Maybe it’s the publicity ofa wedding, but it kind of freaks me out. Plus coordinating all of the vendors in such a short amount of time…
Am I just neurotic, or is anyone else going through this (or something like this), too?

I hear ya girl! I find myself knee-deep in DIY wedding projects while talking to the photographer while emailing the muscians and i start to flip. . ."What if no one comes?" "What if no one likes the food" "What if a meteor hits the earth at the exact moment i am supposed to ay I Do . . .. " and then lastly iat the end of the tailspin. . "Oh what the hell was i thinking. . . " And always, just at that precise moment i get a sweet text from him or he walks around the corner and then it’s like "Oh, yeah. . . it’s because I love him. Because this isnt about how many times i hot glue my fingers to each other or what color the linens are or how many guests roll their eyes at my DIY projects. . . this day, is just another day. . but a day that i will forever remember because of the commitment i made on that day. . . . to love and cherish this angel of a man for the rest of my life. *HUGS* I recently just made a post about this and the wonderful hive ladies made me realize. . it will all work out. . and even if it is not EXACTLY how you imagined. . it will still be magical because you will be married to the man of your dreams.

I hear ya and many hugs! Part of my break downs is bc my sister is 3 time zones away and my Fiance and his parents are knee deep in our house building which I am so grateful for bc that’s even more stressful! So basically I am alone. I’m not too worried about the day what happens, happens, except the weather since its all outdoors! That may reduce me to tears! I am more panicky about the step of marriage, house and our future. So many of my Fiance friends are miserable in their short, young marriages that it worries me even though we are so opposite of them in so many ways and are marrying for the right reasons. I don’t if that makes any sense but everyone tells me its the jitters everyone gets. I have had sob fests and have flat out asked him are you sure you want me, forever? I expressed my fears on infidelity which we both agree on, its funny bc in some way I still feel like I did when I first met him, that I don’t deserve him. Weird I know but I guess my own family showed me what not to do in a marriage, everyone has been divorced once.I guess I want to know what to do right but I know you learn that along the way. So yea you could say I’m panicking over the fear of failure and with less than 4 weeks away its still kinda hard to believe I’m actually getting married! Seems so surreal!

Let me tell you…the emotional roller coaster gets wilder the close you get to the big day. I’m up and down like crazy lately…it’s been expecially difficult because fi and I are in a 2200 mile long-distance relationship AND he is currently in Mexico for a week, so that means no talking at all the week before our wedding!
It’s been important for me to remember that at the end of the day, I’m marrying the man of my dreams. I’m worried about details until 2 days before the wedding, and then–to heck with it all! I’m having fun with family and friends for 3 days until we’re outta here!
You’re not in this alone! It’s crazy overwhelming…but it WILL all come together!
