Wedding Planning: The One Month Countdown

Tomorrow marks the one month countdown to our wedding! That is so exciting but also rather terrifying. I don’t really feel ready yet. I have too much to do and not enough time to do it.  

The One Month Countdown to Our Wedding

We have got a lot done this last month. We have chosen our readings for the church and some of the music we want, organised flowers (finally), I have had my first fitting for my wedding dress, found a bracelet that goes with my dress, bought some more decorations and more.

I have my hair and make-up trials at the beginning of July and then our pre-wedding shoot just after that (it was supposed to be earlier in May but our photographer had to change it) and I will be glad to get all of those things out the way and to know that I am happy with my hair and make-up for the big day.

One slightly scary thing is that I haven’t actually got my bridesmaids dresses completely sorted yet. My pain-in-the-bum sister (hiiii Em!) is really pale so the colour that I wanted that is part of our colour scheme just isn’t working on her. So we’re having to try another colour. And also I have a pregnant bridesmaid so I have to be careful with the shape and fit of dresses. I think we’re close now though. I wasn’t at all worried about not having them sorted a month or so ago, but now it’s just that much closer and it’s proving to be harder than I thought it would be, so now it’s making me a little stressed and I just want it sorted.

Over the weekend I managed to get a bit more sleep which meant that I finally started to relax about it all and get a bit more excited about our wedding again. I’ve felt like I’m constantly treading water recently, trying to stay afloat with everything I need to do.

I know that it will be a wonderful day celebrating our marriage with all of our special family and friends and I really can’t wait – I just need to get things sorted early so that in that final week I can just de-stress and enjoy the moment.

Did anyone else stress out as much as I’m doing before your wedding? I hate being a big stress-head, but when I’m so tired I just can’t seem to do anything about it. Please let me know if you have any tips for how to relax (that don’t take up too much time!) – thanks!
