I am not ashamed to admit I had a little cry at work last week. Time is ticking by and there is still a lot of things to organise.
It is easy to say that I am feeling a little overwhelmed and stress is the cause. A proper first world problem but still a problem.
Does every bride and groom go through this?
I am guessing it’s a yes, unless everything is being dealt with by a wedding planner then anyone in the same situation as us will be.
Because our site is a field we have to organise everything, everything! It’s not hard it just means we have to be organised and I feel like it’s all on my shoulders but it’s not.
Gav is doing his fair share! I am on top of the majority of my DIY makes and the majority of them look great. But the amount of little jobs that I can’t really hand out.
Still so much to do
All the little jobs are adding up now and I have had a lot of friends reach out and ask me what they can do to help.
I have taken them up on it.
I said at the beginning that when people offer help it really is because they want to help and be a part of it.
I called my dad. Mainly because I miss him and to ask when he is arriving. I told him I was stressed. His first words were
“Why are you stressed?
What can I do to help?”
I love my dad. He just said the exact right thing. I had been talking to my sister in law about a few things. Asked my mum to bring over the cheese ( she lives in France!!!) and am chatting to my sister a lot.
Alexa rallied them all up and had a chat with them. Then we all pulled our socks up and got on with it. I am very proud to be a PAYET! We are all awesome.
I have support in all sides. Gavs family is here when ever I need them and We have already involved them at every stage. Papa smurf my father in law has actually made me a fair few props and they have come out so well that I may ask him to make a few more!
I don’t want to be stressed on our wedding day! I just want to enjoy it. I have been looking forward to this moment my whole adult life and some of my childhood too ( thank you Disney).
I just wish my family were a bit closer than the other side of the equator!!
because I organise events as part of my job I did think it would be a lot easier. It isn’t really difficult there is just a lot to manage. But we have 4 weeks now.
So I made a big list.
A super list
And already I have crossed things off!
