I’m currently VERY stressed out about this whole wedding planning thing. Can you guys share some stories about things that you were stressed about and how they were resolved? I need some reassurance that everyone goes through this and it isn’t the end of the world! Comedic relief would be good to 😉

Honestly, if I got super stressed I’d walk away for a day or two. Try not to think about it. Let the dust settle, and then go back for another go. This was my mantra during wedding planning: As long as me, Darling Husband and the officiant show up, the rest is just frills. It’s lovely to have, but at the end of the day, it’s a marriage not just a wedding.
You’ll get through it! Just know when to take a breath and walk away for your sanity! Oh and a glass or three of wine never hurts either 😉

Everyone does go through this and it definitely is not the end of the world!! The one thing that I learned, was that no matter how perfect you want it to be…..it more than likely won’t be what you thought it would be, but perfect just the same, because in the end all that really matters, is that you will be married and starting your new life together. I had things planned to what time everything should happen and was so concerned about everyone else making sure they didn’t screw up that it ended up happening to me…..I showed up at the church for a little quiet time for myself before everyone else and when I went to go see who was at the door, that when I went outside, I forgot the key and locked myself out. 30 minutes later I got another key, but was behind and had to miss out on pictures with my MOH’s and Bridesmaid or Best Man… I can look back and laugh now, because I still married my best friend and it was perfect!!! Good Luck and things will be fine:)

Yeah I just take a step away from everything when it gets too much. I’ll go days without doing any wedding stuff and then when I feel better I’ll jump right in again

I agree with the other posters. Do something you enjoy that is completely non wedding related. Spend some time with your fiance! Enjoy life a little. The wedding planning will still be there when you get back. And remember that it’s only one day!
