Oh girl, that is too bad.  Do you keep a pen & notepad next to the bed?  When I’m worrying about stuff and can’t sleep, I find it helpful to just jot down notes and look at them later the next day to think them through.  Sometimes just putting them on paper and seeing them there is helpful and calms your mind.  Also, I would recommend drinking some warm, non-caffinated tea before bed and/or taking a bad to generally calm your soul before you lay down.  Good luck!!!

Aww (hugs).  Farfrom has a good idea.  Also do you like the process of planning?  (At least in daylight hours?)  if so, then I know, there are things that somehow seem crazier at night when our heads hit the pillow.  (Sigh).  But if you’re thinking that planning in general is just too difficult, maybe you can enlist some help from those close to you, who like wedding planning.  Or invest in a wedding planner.

I have no room to talk because it’s almost 4am here (I promise to go to bed after this)! 🙂

My suggestion is something that I do when my head gets full of details whether it’s related to work, wedding, anything that takes a lot of my time…  I keep a notebook & a pen by my bed and when a detail concerns me or I get an idea or come up with a solution… I write it down on the pad.  It’s a way of releasing it without losing the idea forever.  Then I can clear my mind.  As for the worries… you’re going to have to let that go, girlie 🙂  There will be things that go differently than you planned, just accept that and do the very best you can. Don’t waste this special time of your life by constantly being stressed out 🙂

Yeah, that happens to me a lot too! I think it’s just that there’s so much focus on the wedding, it’s hard to turn our brains off to sleep and easy to wake up at 3 am stressing about something…I had about a 6-week period where there were only TWO effing days where I slept past 5:30!

I don’t really have much advice except to make lots of lists, that has helped to ease my anxiety a bit, when it’s all laid out in front of me…Anyways, sorry to hear you’re stressed about the wedding, it’s not fun to have your sleep patterns interrupted!
