OMG!!! I’m freaking out. . . . seriously out of nowhere . . . well maybe not nowhere… I think it started after I was a bridesmaid in my girlfriends wedding a couple of weeks ago. I’m starting to have nightmares that no one shows up on the wedding day, no one cares, nothing is done and I’m FAT!!!! I can’t sleep and I can’t function,… I’m like in a total freeze. Eventhough I know what needs to be done next, I can’t start, I get major anxiety when starting to do things wedding related… Like for example, I found a flower place all I had to do was call and make an appointment, it took 20 minutes of staring at the phone to finally make the call, I just froze and didn’t want to make a simple phone call because it seemed like a lot of work!! Does anyone else feel this way?

@onk17: Yes! I’m with you. I don’t like calling vendors, and with everything else taking up time in my life I feel too anxious to make myself do stuff.

yep Im the same!I hate talking on the phone to start with,so if I have to ring anyone it usually ends up with me talking myself into it,or putting it off for a really long time!The best thing Ive found is to just do it without thinking about it,if I give myself a chance to think about what Im going to say and stuff,I stress out,so instead I just press the “call” button on my phone before I even really think about what to say.Lol
*oh,and I get anxiety not abou the wedding day,but just THINKING about planning it lol

Hah, yes, this! And also I don’t like asking people to stuff for me, so I’m worried about the readings and ushers and toasts, and god knows what.

I think A LOT of brides freak out…especially when they hit the 3 month mark. I know a bride that hasn’t gotten any sleep since the 3 month mark hit! Poor girl. =(
But there are days where I can’t sleep because I’m thinking about how much stuff I have left to do. Even though I got all my vendors down…it’s just those little details on how to put it together that’s driving me insane.
