futuremrsaug :  Congrats on your upcoming wedding and I’m sorry that you’re stressed out, but I think it’s normal! I wasn’t really stressed at all until the week leading up to getting married, I ended up taking that whole week off after I started realizing taking just the day before wasn’t going to cut it. 

No real advice, just wanted to let you know that what you’re feeling is pretty normal! In regards to your extended family, could you lean on your parents a bit to keep them busy since they understand you won’t be available much?

I haven’t been there yet but I’m pretty sure this is totally normal. 

You might be able to ease your anxiety a little by making a spreadsheet with all of the remaining details and when they can or need to be done. That way you don’t have to keep thinking about everything – you have a date and time for each item and that’s when they will be done.

I have 2.5 weeks to go (Feb 2nd) so I can totally relate! @sboom’s spread sheet idea is the only reason my head hasn’t popped off yet! Keeping all the details in front of me keeps me from getting panicky. I feel like there’s still SO MUCH but in reality there’s really not much to be done.

My parents and brother come in next week (the 23rd) and I just cannot wait for them to get here and take my mind off things.

I delegated some last minute tasks to my close friends and just set aside a night for out of town family but otherwise let my parents entertain them. It will all come together no matter what! Enjoy the week and congratulations.

It is totally normal! I haven’t gotten married yet, but we are March 23rd, so not super far away. 

I agree with the spreadsheet. In fact, I just did one to write down all of the “little” things we still have to do so they aren’t missed. I then assigned a person to each of them, so what I have to do, what my fiance has to do and what parents, etc. have to do. 

If you need more help to focus, try a minute of breathing or meditation. Sometimes when my mind is going a million directions at once, just one minute of focusing on my breath really helps. 

And last, but not least, as for out of town guests, they totally understand  you are super busy and not available all the time! If they start to bug you, designate someone on each side of the family to forward all questions, etc. to. An aunt or a sister. Have them be the ones to find fun things to do, suggest options and answer any questions. That way you can focus on what needs to be done!

Congrats on your upcoming wedding!! Just remember there is nothing to stress about because the day is about you and your fiance and not anybody else. Try making a list of any small things you need to do and check it off your list so that you aren’t worried about forgetting anything. Also use these upcoming days to just take time for yourself and relax, you deserve it!
