  • Wedding: October 2018

I’ve been engaged since November 2015 and we just picked our date/venue in December of 2016. Honestly, if I sit and think about it long/hard enough, I start to get super stressed about all that has to be done – and I’m almost two years out! I have to remind myself that even though we have a lot to do we have plenty of time. That’s my personality with almost anything, I overthink and worry about every little detail. Just take a deep breath, bee! And don’t be scared to ask for help if it’s available to you. Good luck!

The week after we got engaged 😂 trying to find a venue that I loved was going to be the death of me.  I felt 100lbs of relief after we found one and signed the contract.

futurekrachanko :  The day after the engagement! We’ve had a lot of speed bumps and detours along the way due to our families and certain issues. The first month I was having sever anxiety which lead to panic attacks… not fun. I have been doing well with stress lately though and we’re just over 2 months out. There’s a lot to do and I feel pressure, but not the crazy aniety like before.

Around the 2 month-from-wedding mark, I started to get this persistant anxious feeling in the pit of my stomach. I couldn’t eat for about 3 weeks before the wedding. Just the stress of pleasing people and trying to juggle family dynamics was horrid. The actual wedding was a blast, but yeah I wouldn’t want to plan another one!

Like a week ago. We’re 45 days out today. Last week we looked at our to-do list and got a little panicky, especially because school and life have been so crazy. Between now and the wedding, I’ll be away for two weekends, my mom is visiting for another weekend, our best man visiting for yet another weekend, and I’ve somehow got to write weekly assignments, write a long research paper, and study for/take two exams.

Oh also our cat’s kidney disease just progressed suddenly, and we now have to give him fluids 3x a week and pills and he keeps refusing to eat and it’s so sad and stressful 🙁

This is the first time in a while when I’ve felt like curling up and pretending I have no responsibilities and hoping they go away. BUT…I will get through this, and I’m SO excited for the wedding itself!

I’m super indecisive by nature so going through like 4 dresses, changing our minds about the venue about 5 times, worrying about what caterer to pick and listening to others opinions started to wear me down a couple months ago. But we’ve finally got everything settled and we’re happy. Nothing left to do except a showroom visit with a rental company and cake tasting appt. Wedding planning is the pits to me. I’d have preferred calling people up and telling them its a bbq. 😋 Cut out all this extra hoopla.
