Ack! 1st Wedding "Freakout"

Recommended Posts

oh honey, you are NOT alone! i have been struggling with our stupid invites (because i'm a graphic designer, so i feel like everyone will expect them to be amazing, and they are a hot mess!) ... not to mention, i expected to have them out MONTHS ago (we didn't do STDs because we were going to send invites early, LOL). i just vented about this in the "confessions" thread, and just had a good cry over it with my fiance (or in front of him rather ... he didn't know what to say).

 

so since not even invites are done, i feel like i have NOTHING done. then i go to the "may 2009 brides" thread and i see all the stuff that everyone has accomplished already and i feel like a procrastinating piece of crap. i'm terrified to make a list and see how much i have to do! i too have been trying to be super laid-back, and i think maybe i took it too far? i mean how is all this stuff supposed to get donehuh.gif?

 

and i'm fat and un-tan too. *sigh*

 

good call on the wine ... gotta get me some of that! LOL

JaimeLynn... I hope that you are feeling better... You & I are not only date twins, but we are both getting married in the PV area. Additionally, I'm going thru the same things that you are... all the wedding planning stuff, plus all the superficial things (minus the tan) msnwink.gif

 

Thanks for posting this and thanks to all responses! You ladies rock!

 

Big hug for ya smile03.gif

hijacked.gif The invites DON"T need to be perfect but I understand cause I thought mine were just ok and got a bunch of calls and texts saying they were awesome. Just remember people really don't focus on teh invite all that much. It's US that do!

Also.. your ticker says you lost 24 lbs!!! that's amazing.
hijacked.gif now over.

Jamie! Don't worry, everything will be just fine! And what you're going through is totally normal! Just get yourself a nice case of wine and expect that you're going to have these days. And you'll also have some of those "I've got everything under control days".

 

Weddings are heavy on the emotions, and you'll have lots of highs and lows, but you'll get through them all.

 

If you need anything, just ask!

Ha, I love the CASE of wine suggestion!

Jamie, definitely not alone in this one. I'm not freaking out yet but wedding stuff is definitely consuming all my time and energy lately. I totally agree with the idea of the check list - take some from here and make your own. Every time you cross something off you'll feel better.

As far as the tan, weight, etc. That is not really as superficial as it sounds, wanting to look perfect on the big day is a HUGE stresser. If not, why would we spend so much time on finding the perfect dress and hairstyle? I feel like my last 10 lbs. will never come off and if I got any paler I'd get lost in all the snow here.

I just saw this Jamie!!! I am glad you are feeling better..

 

I have had random freak outs ever since we got engaged. They range from WTF am I doing getting married.. to I have sooo much to do and noone will help me.. to no reason at all, just because I am feeling emotional. And mind you, I am not usually an emotional girl; but wedding planning seems to have brought it out in me!

Jamie! I am sorry I missed this thread last night! we could have had freak outs together!

 

Yesterday I was excited because we were exactly 2 months away! Today though I noticed my ticker is now UNDER 2 months! AAAAAAGGGGGHHHH!!!!!

 

What do you have left to do? do you need help with anything?! LET ME KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I think the only thing that is stressing me out at the moment is that even though our RSVP date was OVER a month ago we STILL have people booking!!!!!!! that is starting to get on my last nerve! censored.gif

 

I haven't took my dress to get altered yet...I keep telling myself that I am going to lose 5 pounds before I do that but those are just not coming off as they should!

 

Last weekend I had my bpics, shower and bachelorette party and all of that was a bit overwhelming!

 

I know it is hard but just try to relax and enjoy every minute! (well that is what I keep telling myself anyway!) sad.gif sad but true that it will all be over before we know it!!!!!!!!! (well the wedding stuff but then we will both begin our lives with those fab new hubby's!)

 

 

smile03.gif hang in there it will all work out just fine!

Thanks again ladies!

 

its funny how those of us who have been trying to be super chill and laid-back are now freaking out! well, not funny but ya know... cheesy.gif

 

becks - a case of wine sounds like an excellent plan! Last night we were out of our "normal" stock and I almost broke into the cellar wine - LOL (ended up finding some regular chardonnay tucked away tho)

 

thanks for all of your shared experiences and support/advice! totally helps! still feeling kinda shaky today (just got a LOT going on) but am doing better on the wedding front at least!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
