Oh, girl you need to breathe!

1) I’m sure you will look beautiful on your day, baby bump and all!

2) Relax on this “baby preparation” stuff. Really, you only need a few things for a newborn. Diapers & wipes, bottles& formula or breast feeding supplies, car seat, blankies, some clothes, a safe place for baby to sleep.

3) it is unfortunate you are having trouble with your inlaws regarding the garden. Next time they mention it I would reply with “I know, it’s a lot of work and money but just think, you will have a beautiful garden to remind you of our day forever!” super happy about it 🙂

4) Invite your coworkers. If you end up drifting apart so be it. The wedding may bring you closer to them. If you really don’t want them to go, just explain to the one you already invited that you are scaling back to to size restrictions or something. personally, I would rather them just be invited and add to the party.

Wow, just wow – in which universe is it ok to get on a shuttle bus and let the heavily pregnant woman whose special day you are there to celebrate walk around on a hot summer’s day largely on her own????

I have to say I would just uninvite them after that – they clearly don’t care enough and you’ll just regret remembering them there on your special day. Wouldn’t worry about the atmosphere at work as you’ll be away on maternity for a year anyway by which point it will have been forgotten.

You will look beautiful on your wedding day regardless of the bump – brides have a special glow and smile as they float towards their intended and that makes them more beautiful than anyone else there. Literally bursting with happiness.

Enjoy your special day, I really hope you have a fabulous time!

As a person who’s never been pregnant before I can honestly say that I’m probably guilty of being insensitive and unaware of the needs of my pregnant friends.  I hope that your friends just didn’t think of how hard it is for you to walk around and not that they didn’t care about you having a fun time.  I think those of us who are blissfully ignorant about the mommy stuff will have the ahaa moment when/if we have children someday.  Kind of like how I never really thought weddings were actually “planned” but just showed up and enjoyed myself…probably a bit ungratefully.  Now I know it’s a lot of work and heart and soul.


Cheer up, you have a lot of wonderful things to look forward to!

I’m so sorry you are stressed out! Despite what blogs imply, weddings are as imperfect as the rest of life, but years from now you will look at your pictures with your child and say, look you were there too! And then tell hilarious stories about all the rest. It’s not funny now, I know, but keep telling yourself ‘someday I’ll laugh at this!”  I know you will look amazing and be so happy to be married to your love!
