Do you feel sick to your stomach and have pains in your chest? That’s what I get when I’m having a panic attack and when it gets really bad I start to hyperventilate.

Take control of this – write down EVERY SINGLE QUESTION you can think of and go through every single detail with him. He may not know about YOUR wedding, but he still might be very good.

I’d go and do a mini interview and make sure he’s ok! I’m sure they wouldn’t have hired him if he was terrible x

@Firinne:  Slow down your breathing and start writing a list of all the things you two discussed. You’ll be fine as long as you educated him! 🙂

Breathe.  Two months is plenty of time to get him up to speed on your wedding and many venues with a lot of experienced staff are able to keep things running smoothly even when the main coordinator moves on or leaves.

I started getting those about 4 months out. I channeled all the anxiety into making lists and planning, now I have this crazy document detailing everything for the wedding, but its great hand off to family/coordinator and they can worry about getting it done.

@Firinne:  I had my first panic attack back in March, after putting our cat and family dog down as well as getting a new kitty, on top of wedding planning…..it was bound to happen. I literally thought I was dying. I got dizzy, my heart felt like it was beating out of my chest, I lost my appetite, I had troubles sleeping and staying asleep. I had 2 more episodes after that but have not had one in about 3 months now. *knock on wood*


It’s possible you could be having one and this is what I do when I feel one come on. 

Take slow deep breaths and tell yourself “I’m fine, I’m not dying, I’m just anxious.” This may sound silly to do, but in my head I “yell at myself” and say “STOP!” over and over again.
