June 2014 Weddings

Not sure why....

It's 5am and instead of sleeping like any sane person would be doing, lol I'm up posting on here. I'm a huge ball of nerves and it's kinda freaking me out. Is it normal to feel this stressed about something that's supposed to be the Best day of your life? Lately I've wondered....Anyway to cut this rant short, today I'm meeting with the people who are going to be doing our decorations and flowers and I've got this gnawing feeling in the pit of my stomach. I have to ask again, is this normal? I know I'm ready for this....can anyone else out there relate to this or am I all alone?

Re: Not sure why....

  • You're not alone in feeling stressed about the wedding.  I'm not at all worried about getting married but the planning of the wedding is driving me nuts.  I worry about everything so of course I would worry about every tiny little detail for the day off.  When I find myself getting really anxious I just tell myself that the only important things about that day are 1) that my FI and I end up married and 2) that my guests will be  properly fed andaccomodated.  If the flowers look awful, or nobody likes the favors, then oh well.

    It's become a mantra that I say to myself often.

     

  • I am not stressed about getting married itself.  I am stressed about...... paying for the wedding, paying my bills, being in the spotlight (I'm not exactly outgoing), something going wrong the day of plan wise.  I was working on finishing ordering my invitations last night before bed.  All night I had random wedding dreams.  I really just want to fast forward to 6/21/14.
  • I don't feel stressed but I do feel a bit overwhelmed.  I am really enjoying wedding planning.  We are paying for the wedding ourselves and the amount of money we are spending is daunting but only about 3 more months to go before we can enjoythe day and not stressor worry.  I feel like at least once a week though I do have a wedding dream at least once a week where something goes really wrong or something doesn't get done, it's a bit annoying now...

  • We've had a long engagement and up to this point it has been great, pretty much stress free.  But right now I too have worries.  It is like the lull before the storm.  I can see all the crazy chaos ahead, but there isn't much I can do about it right now.  So I think that is causing some of it, at least for me.

    I hope you sleep better tonight :-)

  • This week just isn't my week. Things that normally don't stress me out are driving me over the edge and irritating the hell out of me. Of course, there's more issues with the inlaws (or outlaws as I've renamed them) complaining that we've apparently shut them out of the wedding planning and our lives. 1) They aren't paying for anything, 2) Anytime we tried to involve them they made it their personal mission to find whatever negative they could about our ideas and shit all over them, and 3) They're called BOUNDARIES...you can't know every single thing that is happening in our lives. They say their negative behaviour is entirely because FI doesn't tell them anything, which I find funny because we did try to include them at the start of the planning and they were incredibly negative, so go figure, we stopped including them. Just, UGH!!!

     

  • I am so glad I am not the only one!!! We have all the big things completed... it's just small details to finalize because we've had a longer engagement... so I haven't had much to really do for a while... but I feel like it is the calm before the storm!!! I keep panicking!!!

  • OMG...yesterday morning at work (I work midnights at a hotel), I was sitting at the desk doing some paperwork and it occurred to me "Holy crap! FOUR MONTHS!!!" I seriously got so worked up I started dry heaving! LOL

    Idk why I was suddenly so nervous about it. Even now, my stomach gets all googly woogly at the thought!

    I'm so excited and everything is coming together (despite my bridesmaid issues that I'm just going to let go of). I think it's just been so long since I first had my crush on Jason in the 8th grade (1986) to hooking up after high school (1991) to finally NOW knowing we are ready to make our life TOGETHER. It just feels so crazy unreal sometimes and I just don't want life to go wrong.
