Panic Attack

I woke up with a start at 4 in the morning, and suddenly thoughts of wedding details still not done came rushing to me like a burst dam, and I started having a panic attack. Only about four months left to the wedding, and there are SO much stuff still not confirmed, still not done.

Really doesn't help with my suddenly-tight work schedule and having to go to work at 6am every morning. Doesn't help when my own parents don't even understand what sort of stress I'm under.

I'm so tired :(

I'm only married once and not much of experiences to share. But I do believe in one thing .. no matter how well you planned your wedding, there bound to be some glitches / hiccups .. My advice? Just don't forget to enjoy the moment. :)

Dearest Tine,

Everything is going to be fine. I believe you're just pre-wedding blues on top of being stressed out at work.

Contact me.. if there's anything I can do to help.

Tine, your wedding day will be the most lovely day in your life. Please remember that there is no such thing as a perfect wedding and it's important to LET GO on that day itself. it'll be important to draw up a list and pass it to someone you can trust implicitly. someone who can make things happen. a list which contains all the contact numbers and contingency plans (rain? bridal carbreakdown? missing bridesmaids?)

beauty-wise, bring along a small bag-your emergency kit. spare straws (for drinking), sewing kit with needles pre-threaded, lippie, mirror, tissues, blotters, painkillers, etc.

Most of all, take deep breaths and smile. Take my word for it, when you get to church and you see all your friends and family gathered there just for you and Tim, any sort of troubles that might crop up along the day wouldn't mean anything at all. They're there for you and more often than not, they're not going to worry that the disc is skipping tracks or that the a/c is not working or that the flowers are not PERFECT.

drop me a line anywhere on my blog if you need help with organizing. I still have an entire folder of excel spreadsheets and lists and instruction lists i can share with you.
