Mine is still 4 months away and I’m starting to panic so I can’t imagine how you’re feeling right now….what do you still have left to do?

Take advantage of your type A personality and start systematically going through your to do list. Make decisions quickly and don’t second guess yourself once the decision is made. At the end of the day you’re getting married and it’ll be perfect. Good luck Bee!

Totally  normal to feel overwhelmed and panicky 2 weeks out from your wedding. I was a wreck at that point lol…barely sleeping, no appetite, just amped up all the time and panicking about all the little things that had to be done. Just take a deep breath and make a list. What helped us was making a master list of all that needed to be done (everything from “finalize seating chart” to “pick up grandma from airport” to “write thank you notes and attach to bridal party gift bags,” and then organizing that list into a calendar. I designated one sheet of paper for each day in the probably 10 days leading up to the wedding, and wrote out the tasks that had to be completed on those days. Then check them off as you go…it’s very fulfilling.

Totally understandable you would feel overwhelmed! As a fellow Type – A individual, I encourage you to make a “to do” list and then organize to do tasks in a calendar. Also – your friends and bridesmaids are there for a reason (if you have a bridal party). Enlist their help and support, it can be a game changer 🙂 Take a deep breath, and remember that at the end of the day, as long as you get married to the one you love, it will all be ok. Good luck, I’m sure you’re wedding is going to be beautiful and I hope you get to enjoy it to the fullest!

Numbers 2 and 5 seem like things your bridesmaids or family members could do, no? Could you and your fiance tackle Number 9 together for 30 minutes a night for the next week?

I found that close to my wedding a lot of people wanted to offer their help. It was work for me to make the detailed instructions (if needed) and delegate, but it was still so worth it to hand things off to people to get them done!

It’s normal to feel panicky, especially for us Type-A people, but if the list really does get too long, know that you can prioritize the most crucial things, and either delegate and let other things go, and really, it will still be lovely. Good luck!

bluecutie00 :  you definitely have a lot on your plate. It may be worth the money, even if its outside your budget, at this point to hire a coordinator. a lot of the unexpected has happened, and you shouldn’t be this stressed out. 

I just got married last week. didnt feel stress or panic until the processional music started. If you can’t hire a DOC, I strongly recommend you delegate what you can and trust those folks you ask to take care of it.  I didn’t want to pay for a DOC because I thought I can handle. Fiance talked me into it for the sake of peace of mind, less stress, enjoy more. I’m so glad we did.

bluecutie00 :  My Dad passed away two months before my wedding. I had to basically drop everything for 6 weeks to run his business. I also gained 10 pounds from all of the stress eating so my dress didn’t fit that great when I wore it. #boobcity

Two weeks out I had a “fuck it” attitude–the only thing that mattered is if I got married that day. Everything else fell into place. The rest is a bunch of details that no one will remember anyway.

bluecutie00 :  

Breathe Bee! As others have said, delegate, delegate, delegate. Failing that, buy a beautiful frame for the memorial, hire a handy guy to mount the T.V. ( or ask Fiance ) to do it. Ask Fiance to submit final payments as well… hire a cleaning service to take care of the house and forget about organizing the master closet until after the wedding. 

For everything else that comes in, delegate or take care of in order of importance. 

Number one on your list should be getting enough rest so you’re not burnt out for your wedding day. Take care of YOU first so you can enjoy the big day 😊

It is natural to be “excited” or panicked.

 

REemmeber you are not alone; you are marry your partner and that is more important than your three tiered wedding cake or matching ribbon on the pews.

Consider using help including a wedding planenr no matter how organized  you are.

Delegate and let it go – don’t worry if the floralbouquet had pearl accents andnot crystal or that the hubby’s tux had a notch lapel and not a peaked or grograin lapels and you wanted satin.

Look at getting some professional help ie someone to clean.  Have some “me” time to go to the gym, ,spa and relax in the bath.

 

Try not to take it all on yourself.
