    Its natural to feel stressed and tired, but you should try to take a break from it when that happens and try to enjoy it because you will miss it once its over. I would just take some days off where I wouldnt do anything wedding related and that helped reset my stress levels during wedding planning.

    If I had known how much I would want to die during that last month,  I would have hired a month of planner. It was too late when I realized I was drowning. When I told Darling Husband, he said, “Well why didn’t we?!” …I was trying to save us money!

    : ok breathe…..you good now? ok I have not yet begun to plan and I cannot say that I wont ever be writing this exact same post. I know this may sound like generic advice but try and remember what the goal of all of this is ya know? the party and planning are just side notes, you are marrying the love of your life and thats amazing! try and remember when you feel like chucking that binder how much you love your fiance and how amazing that day will be. Take everything in stride and remember, its not the end of the world if things dont get done, as long as those i do’s get done you will be golden 🙂 I do hope you feel better darlin!

    @knvprincess143:  I am so over planning, but I am in single-digits now THANK GOD.  I am sooooooooo tired of people asking me if I’m ready, excited, nervous, etc.  And I HATE when people tell me to make sure I enjoy the day, etc., etc., and how I should really enjoy the planning…sigh.

    But at this point I think I’ve got basically everything done, and after this weekend I won’t have any more tasks except to pick up and drop off stuff!

    Hang in there!

    This might help, it might not, but make a list of everything you need to finish up. Pick the most important things first, see if there are some you can deligate to Fiance. And then cross the items off as you finish. I am a visual person and it made me feel better ssing how close things were to being done. And then if there are things that are not so important and you feel stressed just forget them, in the end a lot of the little things are worth worrying about.

    I’m with you and Ms. Meow. A week after yours and this isn’t fun anymore. Maybe if I had an unlimited budget and free reign, this would be easier. But thinking about budget, trying to execute a million things, keep on top of vendors, etc. It’s just a LOT. And I’m not even doing anything DIY.

    Maybe take the weekend to do minimal wedding related things. Besides meeting with a florist after work today, I plan on not doing diddly!

    @Mrs. Meowerson:  I was one in the “bliss” for most of the wedding. There were 3 things that added stress right at the end (rehersal venue canceling 1 week before wedding, flower company calling to say they can’t get the color of flowers I ordered 1 week before wedding, and then 1 package of flowers getting stuck in customs 2 days before the wedding), but at that point what can you do. It was a little extra work, but in the end everything worked out just fine.

    Girl, I am right there with you.  We are six months out, and it’s wrecking me. 

    @knvprincess143: You are right on about the expectations.  They’re far worse to deal with than all the planning details.  

    We’ll survive, y’all!
