Try to take a deep breath first of all. Your special day is almost here and it will be perfect and you'll be married to your man! Treat yourself to something special. It could be a night out with your best friend, even if it's something simple such as going to eat dessert or grabbing a small drink! My favorite way to relieve stress and calm me down is yoga. And if you're not into that option, give yourself a mani/pedi or a facial. Take a hot bubble bath. Do something you know will help you relax.
Try to have a date night with just you and FH and do not talk about the wedding at all! Do something fun to take your mind off of all that's happening right now, like mini golf, or the movies or something like that!
I love 19 Kids and Counting and totally watched last night!
I think it's mostly that everyone is looking to me for their calm. My FMIL is emailing non stop, my mom, my sister. No one actually lives here either so I have to make sure to organize all their travel to and from the plane/train. I guess I am just used to having everything in check and there are like 20+ things here that I cannot control. I can usually let go of 3 or 4 but 20? It's hard.
I don't actually know how to do yoga, but I have found it to be very helpful in relieving stress to stretch and breathe. You could try that! People rely on me for strength and calm too (although not so much about wedding stuff, since I'm still a few months out) and I have to remind myself sometimes that I'm just human and not strong enough to do it all on my own. Give yourself some slack! Hope you can relax and just look forward to your big day!
I feel like they should realize how inappropriate it is for them to be relying on you for these last minute logistical details Is there anyone else who can serve as point person for out of towners' questions? Could FH at least handle his side??
I have a much more relaxed work environment and can take off the Wed-Fri before the wedding (Sat). My FH will probably have to work up through the rehearsal dinner. He is super laid back and chill though and helps me a lot.
I became an alcoholic and a regular at our local liquor store.
seriously, it just frikkin sucks but it will pass and you'll hardly remember this time at all.
