I have 3 days until the wedding and if feels like onething after another.
Bought my girls robes- washed them sk they didn’t smell bad- they shrunk to child size… Money wasted
washed t-shirts I made them- iron on letters are falling off… (I know I’m an idiot)
Programs look rushed. (because they are)
Im not getting ANY sleep.
Im a wreck. Anyone have some Valium for me?! Or at least tips on how to fix stuff or calm down a bit?

Forget the t shirts and robes and go get your bms a pack from the bodyshop or a voucher for a massage. or something that wont take anymore of your pressious time.
Get everything else done, and if you have time fix the booklets.

I am so sorry! Where did you get the robes from? If you got them from Etsy, I would contact the seller. I had a problem with a wedding item I ordered, and the seller sent me a new item immediately. My future aunt also had a problem with something she bought, and the same thing happened. They really do like to make sure to keep you happy. I know you wouldn’t be able to get new robes right away, but you could at least get your money back.
Something I do when I start to feel overwhelmed is I make a list. This way, I can at least see everything right in front of me, and I know what I need to do. I can then put it in my schedule, or delegate it.
The programs always seem to be the last thing to accomplish! We still have to finish ours…that is our Thursday night project.
I would call your doctor and let them know about the sleep issue. They may be able to help you out with that.
We have the exact same wedding date as you! I’ve been a roller coaster. I feel calm right now, but that can change quickly :-). I wigged out at the smallest thing yesterday. I noticed that our wedding night suite was right next door to my stepdad and mom’s! As much as I love them, I don’t want to be next door to them that night. We got it fixed, but it still majorly got to me.
It will all be okay! Everything will get done, and we will have BEAUTIFUL days!! 🙂

I am freaking out too but because I have to get my house clean and its a wreck I also have to pack and make a stop at the local fair for an hour or two tomorrow. I have to decorate the venue Friday so basically I have tomorrow to do a weeks worth of stuff. :/ I’m not sleeping either.

Calm down and take a minute to catch your breath. Remember in a year no one will remember if they had a tee shirt or a robe- they’ll remember you your dress, the food etc. If the robes aren’t to badly shrunk you may be able so save them by washing in cold water, pulling on them to stretch them and letting them air dry. If it was super dramatic shrinking this may not work. Remeber that this day is about you and FI- not about decorations, DJ, programs etc.

I have to clean the house too, HappilyEverAfter54, and I have no idea when that’s going to happen! I also still need to print the table-tent menus, but the restaurant owner has yet to send the names of the wines we’re serving, so I have to wait until she does that. Argh.
I’ve always been a prettty good sleeper, even when I’m stressed, but I’m waking up remembering things to worry about and then having to make myself go back to sleep.
Soon, ladies! Soon this will all be worth it!
