My stress is through the roof!

To top off the already stressful time that is two weeks out. Two of my sisters decide to go to war with each other. One of whom is my MOH who has been awesome up until now, and the other is my dramatic sister who declined my offer to be my bridesmaid. (there is a stack of underlying drama too but thats family for you!) So in true stressed bride fashion I snapped at my MOH when she told me of their most recent argument. I told her I should get my dress my cake and FH and just go elope. Her reply was 'goodluck with it. Send me a postcard." Since then (almost 2 wks ago) I have hardly heard a peep from my MOH. My other sister is straight out refusing to come to the wedding now and I just want to scream! I broke down on the phone to my mum because Im just so over it all. Why did I waste a year of my life planning this thing when all I want to do now is elope and have a honeymoon?!

10 days out and our ceremony isnt finalised. Or even drafted for that matter. GM gifts havnt arrived in the mail from the US despite ordering over 2months ago (apparently they cant track international orders). Music isnt organised. Lolly table isnt finalised. And a gazillion other things that havnt been done. The thing is, I dont give a rats at this point in time! I think Ive become Bridezilla!

HELP!

Don't panic! I get married in 3 days and we're still struggling to print booklets and placecards! and I haven't done my music either, starting this today! centrepieces are my main concern at the moment. I've done the GM buttonholes though, very happy with those, and bouquets pretty much done. I just have to focus today. So my list now....

centrepieces.
music.
assemble booklets.
cut placecards.
need a few more jars + bags of lollies.

Chewdi - Deep Breathes Chicky I know you're stressed but time to start looking for solutions. Work out a backup GM gift to give them if yours don't arrive in time - even if you get FH to explain and get them a cheapie for the day then give them their proper gift after wedding when it comes. Sisters - send them a text just saying to behave for the wedding and everything else - just make a list and check things off. :heart:

Zen - I'm jealous I have to get through to Friday for my last day of work and I get married in a week! Eeek! I too am losing too much weight though, it's dropping off me and I'm starting to worry my dress will be too big! I'm doing my seating chart tonight - it's very simple not super decorative or impressive LOL just purple card (for the tables) stuck on Gold Glitter card. Easy!

I still have to do:

Music for reception
Call all suppliers to confirm all services today
Ring up and pay wedding decs
Wax, eyelash tint & nails
Pay reception final payment tomorrow (prob do this today)
All the run sheets! SO MANY RUN SHEETS

I'm a bit tired but getting excited!!!

I got my waxing done this morning! I went to a new place but she was very quick and thorough ;0)

"Shower or two developing" for the 2nd. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN??

Just wanted to wish you an amazing wedding Zenyatta!!! Noticed on your other posts that your wedding is in 5 days, thought I would quickly butt in on this forum to say have a wonderful day :D

It is 5 am and I am wide awake!!

The cake took 40 hours over the past few days and I am beyond exhausted.

The jewellers forgot to send my earrings in to have the posts remade and just had them lying in store for two weeks and I found out when I went to ask when I could pick them up. They were part of mum's wedding set, and I'd hoped to wear them this Sat. Boy did I chuck a hissy fit in the store... Just as well I have a pair from FH that I can wear..

I've given up on fitting in stuff like a hair trim and nails. Will just have to DIY!!

All the best for Sat, Zenyatta. It looks like showers where I am too. Fingers crossed...

Hope things sort themselves out Chewdi-Koi...

It does, doesn't it... it all kind of just happens around you and you are just a spectator watching it go by... did it RAIN for you gdemon? we were not meant to get rain until the evening and it rained all...bloody...day!!! but it was NOT cold and it wasn't windy so we were quite okay. My dress isn't actually all that dirty, there's something about the material that didn't seem to absorb the mud very much.

It was only a minor annoyance - my dress was always going to get dirty so I didn't worry too much about it... and my hair was in a kind of loose messy style so the rain didn't ruin it. It wasn't cold or windy so we were comfortable enough. I was very happy to have ordered the umbrellas in time though! phew! Being overcast I knew we'd get great pics....
