No, I Am Not Totally Freaking Out

You know all those posts I wrote about having everything under control and talking about how easy all this wedding planning is? I think I have jinxed myself and am now eating my words. That or I’m a huge liar. I’m not sure what happened, I started early and was chipping away at planning. I was setting deadlines for myself and getting things done all the time. I was still marathon training and spending time with friends and life was great.

Then all of the sudden, I’m busy ever minute of the day, the wedding to-do list has added up as well as the wedding budget. They weren’t kidding that those little things start to add up. “WHY DIDN’T I BUY BUBBLES IN JANUARY?” “What day of the week is it anyway?” Seriously, I’ve asked myself that question every day this week. Time is seriously flying.

I knew all along that when you hit the 6 week mark, everything gets crazy busy. Everything is due at once and you have showers, bachelorette parties, favors, seating charts and a million other things all at once. Not to mention, marathon training and trying to have a social life. I think I have 9 to-do lists right now, can’t keep the calendar straight and have accidentally double booked myself for events…twice.

These next few weeks are going to be super busy. Almost every weekend is filled from now til the wedding with cookouts, baby showers, my wedding shower, my bachelorette party, dinner plans, turkey party and work functions. Not to mention anything else I have during the week. Then I magically have to get all the wedding stuff done in between.

However, in 43 days, I get to marry my best friend, celebrate with our friends and family and then take a nice relaxing vacation. Just. The. Two. Of. Us.

Just the two of us, we can make it if we try
Just the two of us, (Just the two of us)
Just the two of us, building castles in the sky
Just the two of us, you and I

That song annoys me to no end but after I typed it I got it stuck in my head so I’m hoping to annoy you too.

Cannot come soon enough

So my best advice is to get as much done as you can early on. Wedding dates are closer than they appear.

Disclosure: I’ve barely slept all week and am not proofreading or spell checking this post. How many times did I repeat myself? Don’t answer that. Ashley-I promise not to fall asleep while watching your kids tonight.

  1. Oh my gosh, girl. When I saw the title to this post I prayed to myself, “please let this not be the freaking out post I think it’s about to be,” and then it was! You’re going to be great! It will be a blur of six weeks. Just take it one thing at a time, it always comes together in the end.

  2. Aww, hang in there! This happens, but the good news is the week or two right before should get quieter again and you’ll be able to recenter a bit before the big day. And you’re right to focus on marrying Ryan and then getting away together. Matthew and I always said we were more excited for the day after the wedding!

  3. You are doing awesome with all you have going on. Make sure you make a little time to breathe! Like you pointed out, keep the end in mind…you get to marry your best friend, it’s exciting and happy and everything will get done!
