    OH Honey.... just relax.... really just relax....

    I'll tell you a little story...

    The two days prior to departure for our DW.... I thought I had EVERY sickness going!

    I had a complete anxiety attack at my dance class (head between the knees, breathing in my nose and out my mouth - steadily) followed by what I thought was a fever (achy, cold, hot, sweaty) outbreak, followed by itchy skin (I was determined that I was getting a rash), then my stomach started to make weird noises... so I took some Immodium...

    Then FI poured me a glass of wine and told me to chill out...

    Amazingly... it worked....

    Everything will be fine... believe me.

    Best of luck in your last 3 months!

      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!

      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 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!)


      hang in there it will all work out just fine!
      Hey Andi! :)

      Just saw this after I posted...

      OMG you're under 2 months! Dude - we TOTALLY could have had a freak out session together last night! hahaha Hell, I'm sure I'll be open to one again before either of us gets married

      I'm so glad to hear you haven't had your dress altered yet either! I've told myself the same thing - 5 more lbs and I'll go! But my MOH convinced me last night not to wait on that and just call and see what the absolute latest is they can get me in. I'll probably do that next week though - I'm totally stressed over other things going on apart from wedding stuff right now (seriously it's like one nasty, hellacious circle goin' on here!)

      Cheers to you! Hang in there, sorry I haven't been on more to chat with ya!

        If it makes you feel better, my FI hasn't asked the GMs either. I don't know what he's waiting for. I've been pretty calm myself, but that 3 month mark really does something to you. I've been drinking martinis and mojtios all week!

              I think there's a freakout moment in everyone's wedding planning stage...lol! I'm all over the wine idea though, its what helps me out! and vent away. I had a freak out moment 2 weeks ago when i realized I had less than 2 mos to go and had so much to do still. So I wrote everything down on paper, and started crossing it off the list, one by one. It helped for sure, oh and I did the list with a bottle of red wine in hand. lol! Just know that in the end everything will get done, and your wedding will be perfect!

                Hey you!

                Hahaha, I love you - you're like my wine guru

                Ok - Seriously, what's up with them?? The guy FI wants to ask to be his best man says that he's going to... get this... fly himself down to the wedding! Maybe he knows something that I don't, but I don't really see that happening... this is his bff from HS, so they haven't talked in years.
                Jaime first off, how have you not seen "When Harry Met Sally"! lol I'm glad that you talked to your moh and she was able to help you out. Just focus on one or a couple of things at a time. Dont overwhelm yourself and everything will be fine.
                I know right!? Well we finally watched it! It was ok... actually I think Martin liked it more than I did! What's up with that? lol

                Yeah it really helped talking to MOH, and also I had poured everything out in a email to my sis who also had a DW (in Aspen, CO) and she wrote me back a great email totally pumping me up and everything. It was really hard to reach out for help, but you know what - I did it! And feel so much better because of it.

                Seems like wine is the answer for us BDW gals!

                Seriously though, we were just at Central Market and I *made* Martin let me go grab a bottle of white because we are out of everything except the fine wines we are saving. He laughed at me as I explained that this is the advice BDW gave me!

                  Crap I forgot to include you in the multi-quote

                  Sounds good to me! So March 24th it's on like Donkey Kong! Make sure you have your own bottle of wine to bring to the freak-out fest...

                    Strange how we're all feeling the same way at the same time. It's like syncing up on your periods or something!
                    LMAO!!!

                    and don't feel bad about not taking your dress to be altered yet ... mine's not even shipping from the manufacturer until late march! (another unrelated wedding freakout, lol). yamille, thanks for the weight-loss congrats ... too bad it's taken me since JULY, lol!

                    jamielynne, i don't know if the list will help ... i tried to make one last night and it just freaked me out more! the only upside was i had no idea i had already purchased so much OOT bag stuff!

                    we'll just all have to keep accepting these and these and everything will be ok!
