Breathe.. my friend.. breathe…. It is perfectly normal to feel stressed about the 1 day you want everything to go perfect, but don’t make yourself sick over it.  I had gotten sick the week before my wedding due to stress too… I thought I literally gave myself mono or something…

Find time for yourself throughout the planning process…. go for a nice walk, massage, have your nails done, read a book (NOT wedding related) so you can just calm your nerves…

Have you considered getting a coordinator? I was having terrible anxiety about wedding planning, to the point where I didn’t even want to do it, until I hired my planner.

Girl! I am the same way. I will think about all I have left to do, get something done, then think about all that I have left and have nightmares. I am driving my BMS crazy. I keep telling them all that I have left to do! I have 201 days till my wedding and I want everything planned out. No one seems to understand that! I have been taken over by my own wedding….

Welcome to the club! My wedding is 5 months away and two nights before i had a nightmare that on the day of thw wedding the hair specialist turned up and she screwed up and did make-up instead of hair and it was a mess and no time to fix it. Gosh! I think we just spend too much time thinking about THE day, but then i can’t get it out of my head either 🙂

YES!  Me too – exactly!  I can’t help it.  Every waking moment I’m thinking, browsing, checking stuff out.  I’m totally exhausting myself.  I’m thinking the same way – I’d like to get a lot of the details out of the way as early as possible, so that by the time the wedding actually comes  around, I won’t have to worry about too much.  I even asked my FH if he thinks about the wedding much.  And he doesn’t….lol.  A little frustrating, but I let it go because I know I’m doing this to myself.  I guess it doesn’t really matter – the day is going to come and go whether all the details fall into place before then or not….lol.

I was just about to write a similar post!  I almost wish my wedding was sooner so I could stop looking at Pinterest!  I think we all want a “perfect” wedding day, and so many of us brides go through exactly what you are going through.  It’s hard not to!  However, I know that no one will have any idea on the day of your wedding that anything was less than perfect.  Everyone else will think your wedding is beautiful no matter what you do.  Just have fun in the process and make at least one night a dedicated “no-wedding-stuff” night– your fiance will thank you!
