I'm not quite sure how to start this out but I read that blogging while planning a wedding is a good stress reliever. I am in need of one of those it seems. The closer the wedding gets the more panicky I start to feel. Not from cold feet or jitters mind you but just from the stress of it all. I had a friend who got married last December advise me before I even got engaged to elope...I laughed at her and her talk of stress and figured it would be a piece of cake because I am super organized...What I didn't realize at the time is that even being super organized it can be a very stressful thing to plan a wedding. In part, I believe, because we all want our big days to be absolutely perfect! And in the back of our minds we all know without a shadow of a doubt that nothing ever turns out perfect in this world so why would our weddings be any different. My fiance and I are tying the knot on April 10, 2010...yes in a mere 121 days. I could tell you down to the hour and minutes but I shall refrain from doing so :o)
As each day passes the pressure grows because I have been slacking in doing things that I certainly should have accomplished by now. I, however, avoided thinking about them because they were stressful and now I am in a rapidly passing countdown to the big day. So my first piece of advice would be to NOT avoid thinking about the things you need to get done for the wedding because you shall surely suceed and it will end up being a not so great thing.
I am hoping to find some fellow brides on here to commiserate with me and share ideas and stories of this adventure called wedding planning. If you also have a blog please share it with me so I can read about your plans and challenges so that I know I am not alone :)
Until next time,
