no you don’t have bad taste I was actually going to do the same thing cause my bridesmaids handle things crazily rough. and you can’t be all that bad at Diy cause my best friend can’t even build a ice pop stick picture frame. I think its the wedding stress getting to you. it happens almost to everyone.

It’s okay.  I’m sure it’s okay.  I had the same exact meltdown, only about paper flowers, and how absolutely nothing was turning out right and my fingers were numb from the stupid tip of the hot glue gun and the charms for the bookmarks looked so much different on the internet when I ordered them and the pictures on the tutorial looked so much better and the person kept saying how easy it was to do, and if I couldn’t do the easiest thing, how the heck was I going to handle the stupid centerpieces and what was I thinking and why didn’t I just sell my body to science to get the extra money for real flowers and favors?

Take a deep breath.  Make sure you have something good and non-wedding on the tv.  Take a good swig of something good to drink.  Tell your cat you love her and she’s the best kitty in the world (or maybe that just works for me), and then remember that you are marrying the greatest man in the world and in the end, THAT is what matters most.

Then realize that your flowers don’t actually look that bad, and in fact, they will look great by the time you’re done with them.  And if you can’t convince yourself of that, take pictures of them, post them on the DIY forum, and ask for help.  You can do this.

@Akbridezilla:  I really can’t even count the times.  And the night before the wedding, I needed to do one final thing; I was still in my dress from the rehearsal dinner, and the glue got stuck a bit, and then came SHOOTING out.  I burned my leg, and will never hotglue without jeans again.  I had a wound on my leg for the whole honeymoon, my husband calls it my war wound.

I had a bunch of friends helping me with the project when I started it a few months before the wedding, and they all got burned too.  It was kind of sweet, in a, dear lord I owe them big, sort of way.

Man, I am so tired, I completely forgot to ask.  Do you have anyone helping you with this stuff?  The chair rentals, and the band search, etc?  It is so much easier if your Maid/Matron of Honor or your mother or sister or someone can help you do this stuff.  Wedding craft parties are also great, you provide pizza and drinks and you get slave labor.  Kind of like moving, only they don’t realize how it’s going to be just as brutal as moving furniture so they actually show up (I’m just a bit evil).

You have a little bit of time.  You’ll find a band.  Did you ask the ones who are booked if they have recommendations?  The local community college’s music program?  Even highschools have talented young musicians who are good at what they do, my friend used to do weddings when he was a junior and senior in high school (he was in the top tier band at school).  At the very, very worst, you will put an ipod into a speaker…but it won’t come to that.  That’s plan Z.  Can you imagine doing this ten years ago when there wasn’t even a plan Z like that available?  Their plan Z’s involved getting Uncle Bernie drunk enough to sing.  (Not to knock iPod weddings, we were totally going to do that, they just aren’t everyone’s thing).

You can do this.  It’s not going to be a mess.  You are marrying the love of your life!

ETA:  I also had the benefit of being around when this was posted; it definitely helped me keep things in perspective.  Not that it’s not okay to freak out about the details, that’s completely okay.  This just helped me out if I got too involved.

@MissFireFlower:  *HUGS*  It’s normal to have at least 1 meltdown during wedding planning I think.  Try calling up your BMs and see if they can help you out a bit, hopefully an extra set of hands will do the trick.  Best of luck with everything.
