A little stress

So with the wedding just over 70 days away I'm beginning to stress a little all of a sudden. I went from thinking we were in awesome shape to stressing about everything we have left to do. Lying in bed trying to fall asleep I remember seating chart, place cards and escort cards, out of town bags, kids activity kits, bathroom baskets, dessert bar nametags, centerpieces (just 6 DIY), tying ribbon to mason jars to hang them, ordering candles (I need to still figure out how many I need of each kind), putting together gifts (I have everything I just have to put them in gift bags), prepping for my b-pics (June 27th!), figuring out my beauty regimen for before (like facial or no facial, wax or no wax, pro nails or DIY - too many details to figure out!!). And this is just what pops in without really even thinking about it. Not to mention all the little things to still buy for these to-do's. And even though we've paid about 80% of the wedding already I've seen I only have 6 paydays until the wedding! YIKES!!! And I only have one more weekend of help from my bridesmaids, correction MOH because my other bridesmaids are too busy wtih their kids. I mean I asked my one bridesmaid, who is supposed to be my best friend yet we haven't talked in like a month, if she could get together sometime Thur-Sat just to hang out (was not asking her to do anything but hang out and be my friend) and she said "well I have this and this, we'll see." We used to get together all the time. She has time for her other friends, why not me?


Ok, I'm stopping my ranting and venting. Just had to get it out. I'm thinking I'll take a bath when I get out of work and then try to tackle some to-do's.

:( A bath sounds lovely!


 


And I know what you mean about all these little things. I've heard the last two months are the worst! My advice for the to-do's that you still need to do is designate a day to pencil in what you're going to do. Like I still need to make 8 cake stands, so I'm going to pick a day and write it on the calendar that day will be designated to cake stands!! lol and so on! Don't lose sleep over this though, just breathe and start checking things off!

There are so many points you've made that I would think you were in my head stealing my thoughts.


I can relate to how you're feeling.  I go up and down with my thought so many times in a single day.  It's enough to drive a person crazy! 


My only bit of advice is to make a list and then another list and so forth.  I find that I get to making a list and I feel more focused.  Not to mention the sense of accomplishment when you finally do accomplish a task. The scratching off of tasks is a small victory.  Even as simple as cutting ribbon bits will make the list!

Yea I did have to make a new list. I have a million - my master checklist on my tablet and the PW one. Small lists such "to buy" "to make" "to do" "to call" etc. Then with this most recent stress I decided to add it to my calendar "wedding to do." So now each day I have spare time there is "wedding to do" with certain tasks that I'd like to get done each. I hope it helps.


Today is: figure out how many candles I need to order, tie ribbon on hanging jars, find signature cocktail recipes, bridal party newlsetter #2, call bridal salon to check on arrival of bridesmaids dresses


:) This really is a great place to vent! I feel so much more relaxed and focused now

Yay! We should all totally update this group, or even this post about what we get done! Since we are all getting married around the same time, let's just keep each other accountable!!


Today I am going to cut up our old STD's (I didn't like the first batch I ordered. lol) So I am cutting out our faces to use on something else! lol. Thank goodness there's a paper cutter at work ;) Other than that, nothing else today.


 


Does everybody know what they are doing for their rehearsal dinner?
