You are probably in the most stressful time of wedding planning. Breathe and tick everything of your list one at a time!

About the losing weight part I literally gave up! I was so stressed and trying to lose weight and watching everything I ate made it even worse. I let go and i still felt absilutely beautiful on my day.

All this to say it will all get better. Don’t let people get on your nerves. Take everything one dilemma at a time

I was in the same boat with weight gain. I fit into my dress when I bought it, then gained and decided it wasn’t worth a crash diet so I had my dress altered, luckily for free. As for the rest of the stress, you can’t control what other people decide to do. Remove yourself from those conversations and focus, one a time, at what you can do for that day. Simply reach out to your families and tell them it would really mean a lot to you and Fiance if they would put aside their differences and share in your special day. That’s all you can do. If they don’t come, they will probably regret it but you can’t control it. 

Try doing some yoga, meditating, whatever helps you relax. I got a childs oversize coloring book and colored everyday leading up to the wedding. Work was very stressful leading up to the time I took off as well so this helped me a ton! Contact those friends ASAP and let them know pertinent information and get those cards in the mail. If they are good friends, they will understand that life gets crazy sometimes. 

Taking walks are good, spending time with your dog, long hot bubble baths are a favorite of mine, and stepping away from wedding stuff a little bit too. Its easy to get bogged down with decisions and to do lists. Get something done each day you can, don’t feel bad about what isn’t done yet, and then unplug wedding from your mind. When I need to stop thinking about somethiing, I visualize myself in a large room with lots of shelves and boxes. I imagine writing what I’m thinking about on paper, fold it up and put it in a box. Then i magically float the box to the farthest shelf. It helps me put things out of my mind and feel at ease.

You will make it through this!!!!
