    Just started this week, a little under 6 months out. Severe anxiety and not being able to sleep/staying up researching wedding things.

    I think I have been in panic mode since day 1.  Fiance has about 2-3 wedding nightmares a week…usually about arriving late or not being able to find his shoes etc.

    Meanwhile I lie awake running things over and over again in my head…at least he sleeps! LOL.

    I never felt any anxiety, unless you would consider the whole engagement kind of anxiety-inducing just because it was such a rush. We only had seven months to plan, so it was really like having a second job. I didin’t get 100% of the things done that I wanted to, but the important ingredients were all there, so it was still a beautiful, memorable, and perfect day. If I can do the whole thing in seven months and some brides in even less, you can get everything you need to finish done in 5! Relax, breathe, and try to enjoy being engaged.

    I have 7 months to go and I am not freaky out yet. We got a new date and he should be home soon so we can finish planning. I think when it gets closer I will probably be like a cat will claws on the ceiling but right now I am just enjoying not having to stress too much.

    When I start feeling stress I am quite sure I will have a couple of glasses of wine and drink until it doesnt bother me anyone..hahaha

    I’m right under 3 months and I did a little freak out stage between 6-4 months but now I’m all “Let’s DO THIS!!” I’ve accepted the fact that not everything will go my way and I’m 100% ok with that. I am just going to do the best I can! And for the whole I need to save another 2 grand in 2 months….yeah…not going to sweat it. I can do it and if I don’t, well I’ll figure that out then. Haha.

    I started to panic right after we got engaged, but then it tapered off after we got the ceremony and reception venues secured. I’ll probably start freaking out again around Christmas – there will be a lot going on and A LOT left to do 🙁

    I’ve been freaking out right from the start but that was because of family drama. Now I’m freaking out because I see the costs mounting and I’ve had a few surprise ‘no’ rsvps that are making me feel sad. That, and I’M GETTING MARRIED NEXT MONTH! HOLY CRAP!

    I’m more than 6 months out but I’ve been freaking out, due to budget concerns and wondering if I’m emotionally ready for marriage or not (I am, I just like to doubt myself). 

    I’m envious of another couple we know who got engaged just 2 months ago and are planning for a wedding that will happen before ours, because they already have the money saved up to pay for everything. I feel that if we were as well off financially, the decisions and the tasks would be much easier for us to take care of.

    We’ve been together for more than 7 years now, and we’ve matured together, both as individuals and as partners in a relationship, and there is no doubt in my mind that we are solid. I just have low self-esteem and I worry sometimes that I won’t be “enough” for my FH for the next 50-80 years, for the rest of our lives.

    Started freaking out about a week ago.  I have about 7 weeks to go until my wedding. We have a few things that haven’t been taken care of yet, and Fiance is in the process of moving in.  Its…unsettling. But I’m still excited, but DEFINITELY have started to freak out about little and big things.

    Two weeks before the wedding, just started to majorly freek! As in question everything – should I post-pone the wedding, are we a good fit. We just moved together and it was so stressful and made me realize how different we are and how differently we handle stress.

     

    I have to say at the 2 week mark all the little stuff seems like eh? programs and break music are the last two things I have to do but I sort of don’t care anymore. I don’t know if that is horrible or apthy but I feel like I spent the last seven months treating wedding planning like a job and now I’m burnt out.

     

    To me it’s just a big party now.
