That sucks do you have room to put the stuff in??

I’m more than a month after you and I’ve been having vivid nightmore/borderline night terrors for a couples weeks..  That is when I can actually fall asleep!

Just breathe… it’s one day… no one will notice if a little thing is out of place. It’s about getting married, not about the color of the napkins, etc. 🙂

I haven’t lost sleep yet, but am definitely feeling the excitement.  I can’t believe it’s already here… only 3 weeks for me **gulp**.

O the dreams! It’s ridiculous, but probably weekly I have a wedding nightmare where something went so wrong because of poor planning on my part…really??? You should see my spreadsheets and lists, nothing’s going to go wrong due to lack of planning (although I know things will go wrong). 

I suppose it will only get worse. My goal is to have every single DIY and thing completed by Friday night the week before the wedding. We’ll see…

I’m probably dillusional, but I think I’m totally on top of things and am strangely calm about the whole thing. I do however have a nagging sense that a week before the wedding I will remember something huge that I didn’t do.

I do feel your pain. Just when sleep is the most necessary it gets all screwed up by stress.

Oh yes, I have had dreams too (one of them I have had multiple times). I find myself more and more stressed each day. I really need to hurry up and make a list of what needs to be done so I can start marking things off.

I just keep telling myself that it will all work out in the end. As a pp said, no one is going to notice the small things anyway. It’s all about marrying your best friend, and that’s not something to stress about, it’s something to be excited about!

I’ve been having wedding dreams already over the last couple months.  Not overly frequent, but sometimes.  But just this last Sunday I couldn’t sleep for a long time because my mind was buzzing with wedding stuff.  I had to get up and go on the computer to do some work since lying in bed for over an hour wasn’t helping..  So around 2am I finally fell asleep to wake up 4 hours later for work..

Yeah I agree we stress over the small details that probably not many people will notice..  You can only do so much and expect the unexpected.. and if something goes wrong then you will just deal with it and see how you can fix it.  Then move on and continue to have a great time at your wedding!

@lamkky:  Oh I’ve been having these dreams too. Things go wrong in my dreams, cause I’m so panicked about everything I think. In my dreams I’m chugging back camomile (sp) tea! I’ve got a box to have with me the morning of lol

Me too! 3 weeks technically but my last day at work will be Tuesday the 31st and then we head out on the 1st for the area we are getting married in so i feel like I really only have 2 weeks to solidify everything! I haven’t lost sleep yet but my mind is going 100 miles a minute!

I have been so calm up until today. At least I only need to focus through 2 more weeks of work.
