I think you and I are the same person… I just posted about this the other day and my list was that long and my stress level that high!

Delegate some responsibilities to your fiance. 

Don’t feel too bad; our wedding is also in June and we have so much to do!

Yes, try and delegate wherever you can! I hear you on just starting a new job – it’s like I have literally NO time left to do anything now. It sucks. Just keep swimming!

@noodlesploosh: we’re date twins! ๐Ÿ™‚


Like PPs have said, can you delineate certain tasks out or make them easier on yourself?


*have your mom look for flights home for you? / look up traditional ceremony things and have her send them to you so at least you cut out the time spent searching?

*give groomsmen responsibilities to FI? IE have him send an email out to all the guys letting them know where/when they need to send their measurements?

*talk to your Maid/Matron of Honor & give her the info on meeting with the designer (maybe a phone call on your drive home from work or something?) and see if she’d be willing to send an email out to all the BMs letting them know what they need to do

*regular stamps.  If it’s just going to stress you out, do you REALLY need vintage stamps? We as brides obsess over little details but I doubt any of your guests will really care if it’s vintage vs regular postage on their invitations

*Call your cousins on your way home from work so it doesn’t take out time from your free time when you get home (what little you have)

*Can you make phone calls during work hours? Or can your FI? Could either of you make a few phone calls at work during a lunch or something for asking your friend to DJ & calling caterer, or any of those other calls you need to make?

Since your wedding is in your hometown could your parents even pitch in & help by meeting with the caterer or making the phone call for the dessert bar?


Good luck! Try not to stress too much! ๐Ÿ™‚

Sorry you are so stressed! But welcome to New York! It is the most amazing city and I really hope that you enjoy it here once you settle into work and your new place!

Awww, I’m so sorry you’re feeling overwhelmed Frown.  I had that moment a few weeks ago and just cut some projects or delegated it out to close friends and family…and cried into a glass of wine with a side of brie.  I’m sure once you settle into your new routine everything will fall into place as it should.  Chin up and best of luck!

I will look up my cake person for you when I get my computer back from the shop tomorrow.  PM me and I will send you her name and number, she is awesome, affordable, and only has our easy cakes that day so I know she can do yours.  If you need any help in our hometown, just let me know as I have lots of free time.  I will also send you a name for a wedding coordinator, she is good and is only charging us a few hundred but she also has a few people that work with her that are really inexpensive.  If you need a cocktail when you get back just let me know Wink.
