Steph77:  ohhh, I’m so sorry! 

Okay, first things first: I know you want your day to be perfect, but weddings NEVER are! What matters at the end of the day is that you and your man are married. The rest of the stuff is just a bonus. please try to keep that train of thought and it should help calm you down. 

Also, these things suck but it sounds like everything wil be fine. It sounds like although there are some fitting issues and a possible change in honeymoon plans, the wedding should still be beautiful and fun. Nobody will remember if the dresses didn’t look perfect Or you didn’t have a getaway vehicle. 

Now – is there anyway to get out of the work trip? I would try to get out of it, and if I can’t, then try to do something relaxing in the evenings while away. Go to the spa, gym, yoga, hot tub. Whatever the hotel has or is nearby. Stress is not healthy and will not help you look your best on your day.

The 3.5 hour train ride is insane. This would stress me out to no ends! Is there any way you can rent or borrow a car? Get someone to go with you and drive you? Time is of the essence here and you don’t want to risk missing trains, etc. It’s only going to add to the stress.

same goes for the getaway car – come up with a backup plan. Borrow or rent something. I bet you already have a cute just married sign, so doesn’t matter what the car is, the getaway will be adorable.

also, make a backup plan for the honeymoon. Again, find another vehicle. or, just take off to an all inclusive in Mexico or something for a week. It’s affordable. (Especially with gas prices!)

Trust that the bm’s dresses will fit. Just wipe this from your mind. This is your day, and I know you want them to look their best, but nobody will remember if the dresses didn’t hug their curves or were a little off. I’m sure the seamstresses understand your predicament, so just trust them and let it be.

I’m sure that your dress is going to fit you on the big day! It’s not impossible to take the inseams out up to 1.5″ usually. 

This will be fixed! Please try to stay calm! 

Also, prepare yourself for other things to go wrong. Maybe the wrong colour flowers, makeup artist doesn’t show, Whatever. Plan for the worst and enjoy the day. All that people will remember is that they had fun and you looked beautiful. and again, all that matters at the end of the day is that you and your Fiance are married!

congrata and good luck!

I’m sorry that all these things are happening. Of course that would be stressful! But just try to focus on the fact that at the end of it all, you WILL be married and that will make you happy. Remember that’s the reason for it all – the wedding hoopla is just icing on the cake. Once you still end up married, it’s a success.
