After feeling very sick for the last month I’m starting to wonder if wedding stress can be the source of an illness.
Over the next three weeks I will finally find out what is wrong with me. A combination of headaches, stomachaches, insomnia, and more, has been making me miserable since 2009.
Thankfully a very special someone helped to relieve a little wedding related stress related by finding the Bridesmaid Dresses.
Thanks to my sister in law, every one of my bridesmaids have bought their silk chiffon J.Crew dresses! Four girls will wear the Silk Chiffon Juliet Dress and four will wear the Silk Chiffon Sophia Dress, all in Bright Rhubarb. I am so happy and so relieved.
The Bridesmaid To Do List
Shoe style & color (none on the beach, but what about the reception?!)
Gifts – before the wedding/at the wedding
I can’t forget the Flower Girl dresses, hair, shoes, gifts, bouquets, etc. Those things are just for the bridal party, Brandon needs to figure out his groomsmen and the ring bearers’ attire too!!
Here is my Wedding To Do List
Finalize guest list
Save the Dates
Go to Destin to meet with DCC event coordinator and photographers
At the DCC: create menu, sample menu, decide on tables, chairs, set-up for DJ, decorations, etc.
Find a Cake baker – samples cakes – decide on cakes
Find a florist in Destin
Pick out Flowers
Find alcohol, wine, and beer distributors in Destin
Decide on Invitations
Make a final decision on centerpiece design
Dress fittings – the dress doesn’t even arrive in CT until April!
Find pretty shoes and dancing shoes for reception
Buy B a gift for wedding day
Find travel agent, meet with travel agent, plan honeymoon
The Wedding To Do list could be the reason I am stressed and not feeling well. I will soon find out if wedding stress is the culprit for my ailments! I am getting dizzy thinking of everything that needs to be done in the next 273 days!!
Once A Bride says
This is the most exciting part!! Says me, of course.
Hang in there!
Ahhh! I totally relate. What I do is drink a glass of wine before bed and that knocks me out cold so I don’t sit in bed all night grinding my teeth and thinking about wedding stuff. Though, the glass of wine is totally killing my pre-wedding diet… another thing to stress about… yikes.
