wedding. stress.

Hope everyone had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving! D and I enjoyed the Arizona sun with family and it couldn’t have been better. We had a family bridal shower and it was just amazing, it’s wonderful to have supportive and thoughtful family! Now I am on the hunt for some cute thank-you cards to write those notes out!

Guess what arrived this weekend? My garter :) I went with a simple white garter, I thought about finding one that had to do with the Navy (D is in the Navy) but the ones I found were a little cheesy and not exactly ‘classy.’ Very exciting that we’re getting closer- hard to believe it’s already December! June 4th will be here before we know it!

I don’t know if any other brides-to-be feel the same way, but sometimes I get really anxious/stressed out (like keep me up at night) by the fact that yes, I do have 6 months before my wedding but I don’t feel like I’m doing/planning enough. I would just HATE for my wedding day to get here and look back and say "I wish I would have done this, I wish I would have thought of that…” I just want it to be perfect and I’m really not much of a detail oriented person, so in the back of my mind I know there are really important things I’m going to mess up. (There- that was the wedding rant/fear of the day!) I guess I just need to keep focused and busy and pray that it all goes smoothly.

D and I will be in Texas for Christmas, which is great because that’s where we are getting married and we need to finalize a few details. Something I’m semi-stressing out about is our rehearsal dinner. We have 18 people combined in our wedding party (thanks to myself being in a sorority and D attending the Academy), as well as their fiancés, our family members, etc. It just makes for a big party and I know I need to spend just as much time spending that as the actual wedding. Hopefully I’ll come up with some good/fun ideas soon!

Happy Monday everyone!



  1. Everything will turn out wonderfully! Don't stress!

  2. I have 10 months left to plan and still get that way sometimes. I think it's natural since we've probably never orchestrated something this big before! Write all those important things you need to do down somewhere so that they don't have to float around in your head all the time. That helps keep me sane. But I agree with Christin, everything will work out and you will have a beautiful day!
