All the drama– All the confusion– All the money spending– All the STRESS!!!
THATS what I cant wait for to be over!!! I love my Fiance and I cant wait to be married to him. But lord help me get through these next 30 days bc THIS might be the time that I pop the biggest!!!
Bridesmaids, Mothers, FI’s (clearly there is only 1), Outsiders, grandparents….. CHILL.
Any tips on Holding it all together in the final stretch?? When people change around YOUR wedding, and when people throw all those last minute wrenches in the plans??
And ulitimatley, yes- I will be marrying my best friend and that truly IS all that matters. However, lets be real bees — we have spent LOTS AND LOTS of time, money, blood, sweat and tears into making this a wonderful, never forgetting day and we DO want it to go the way we plan or hope for.

Yes I feel the same way!! I just imagine myself on the beach with Fiance on our honeymoon and that gets me through it, though so far my planning hasn’t been stresful, I’m just not a girly girl and I kind of hate it. It all feels like chores! But when I start seeing it all come together, I get really excited 🙂
I know you’re only 30 days out, so every waking moment is probably spent on wedding stuff, but if you can, try to do fun activites to relieve stress, read, date with Fiance, get a manicure etc. That’s how I’ve been staying sane.

YES. I am 3 months out and so over it all. We’ve been planning for over a year and while I’ve enjoyed some of it it’s also been stressful and EXPENSIVE. So so expensive. Kind of ridiculous really. I just can’t wait to be married to my Fiance and done with all the wedding hoopla.
Though I will say I’ve had multiple friends tell me that it’s ALL worth it on the big day. Hope that’s true!

I can’t wait to be married and on the honeymoon. Just ten days to go! But I feel so stressed, most of the vendors have been fine. Had final meeting with DJ last night and he pretty much infuriated me, but I am remaining optimisitic. I mean cmon, don’t tell me that I should shorten my reception, that nobody will stay that long (uh most people are from out of town and like to drink, they have nowhere else to go and aren’t going to pass up free booze!), then tell me oh yeah its gonna be an extra $75 too because you read the quote wrong, and for god’s sake, pronounce my name correctly! I asked my mom to handle the programs, because frankly I don’t care about them, but I ended up finding the template and having to answer 20 questions about the wording. I was like seriously, I’m sure it’s fine, I don’t care, there is a reason I delegated! Oh yeah and FI’s brother in law apparently hasn’t gotten fitted for his tux. That’s great, I said well, no tux, he is out of the wedding party and his wife (Fi’s sister) can just walk back up the aisle alone.
All of that on top of work is wearing at my nerves. Fiance is making me something yummy for dinner tonight to help get my mind off of it all.

Dear God yes. We are in the home stretch and I am totally over this whole damn wedding at this point. Things would be a lot easier if my Mother wasn’t breathing down my neck every five seconds with manufactured problems that don’t even exist, but I suppose there isn’t a whole hell of a lot I can do about that.

Absolutely. I love the idea of getting married, but the planning is just… I’m ready to be done. I was at my dress fitting last night, and I have the choice of spending $225 to let out the side panels or losing 5 lbs – that might be the most stressful 5 lbs Ive ever lost!

We’re getting married in September and I’m excited for it to be over! We are seriously on money lockdown to pay for this thing so I think it will feel so liberating to have it over with and have all of our extra spending money back! We’re just worrying so much about money that it’s so stressful!

Omgosh I have 4.5 months left and I feel the same way, god help me when its a month away. I also cannot wait to have the extra spending money again, all of our money goes into the bank ALL of it!!! I’m finally taking a little extra this weekend do go shopping in the states!!!! NO WEDDING TALK OR PLANNING for 3 WHOLE DAYS!!!

ME! ME! ME!! I have 3 weeks left and I CANNOT WAIT for my day to be here…so the planning, and the thinking and the stress will go away!!!
My best advice…get everything done as soon as you can and stop looking at pinterest a month before!! So I am done with all my DIY projects and the only things left are dress fittings and hair/makeup. This was my best attempt and making the last few weeks as stressfree as possible!! =)

I am 9 days out and just so flipping tired (lack of sleep tired) – with 2 teenagers a full time job and all of the wedding details. I am so ready for it to be here so I can just enjoy it. Tired of thinking of it and following up and doing DIY projects and crossing i’s and dotting t’s but know it will all be worth it.
Hang in there!!!

I thought I was the only one. There has been so much drama I am afraid I am not going to enjoy the day I have been waiting for for so long. Sad to say 🙁

Omg, can I kiss you?! Haha, yeah, I know that was a little creepy internet stranger. But, I totally agree. 100% agree on everything you said. I am 99 days out. So, I’ve got triple the time and I think I could just explode between money, guests, people who are wanting to be guests, projects… the list is neverending and overwhelming. Not to mention, I am still in school, and will be throughout the duration of my engagement/wedding/honeymoon. Lovely!

Once it’s all over you’ll want it back so try to enjoy the planning and engagement time! I was INCREDIBLY stressed and felt like this months before my wedding but I want it all back now so just try to prioritise things you have to do and take time to enjoy it
