Did anyone have any bridezilla moments? I thought i wouldn't but seeing as there's only 32 days left and we all know how quickly the days go by, I'm starting to feel the pressure and I could scream and cry so much right now! I have two feelings at the moment... stress and the need to eat ice cream... only I can't because I need my skin looking good and to not put any weight on ???? help!

just breathe mate, just breathe! and smile!
In 32 days you're marrying the person of your dreams, the person who makes you whole, the person you don't wanna be without.
No matter what happens on the day, you're still going to be marrying him/her.
I'm stressed and I'm still well over six months away from mine, but instead of ice cream, I've beent venting to my OH (who now knows just how crazy I am for being stressed over the tinyest thing).
Talk to your OH about what is stressing you out, they might have a different perspective which might help.
Honestly though, just try to relax - if you're anything like me, your skin will thank you for that too (as well as staying away from the ice cream!).
What is stressing you out? Can you do anything about it?
Just breathe and remember your big day is all about you and your OH saying "I do" x

You need to relax. If you get like this on the day you will ruin it for yourself. If you need the ice cream then have it and then do some exercise to work it off. You are only going to spoil the experience for yourself. Things will go wrong on the day but it’s those sort of things that make the best memories. An example from my day was that a bottle of champagne sprayed over some of my bridesmaids’ dresses about 15-20 minutes before the wedding. I just laughed at them trying to dry themselves with hairdryers because what else could we do? I also chose to change into converse later in the day. I thought I’d swapped the laces out for ribbon laces to make them look more fancy but it turned out I’d only remembered to doone shoe 🙈. I then went round showing people my mistake and we all laughed at it. Just remember it’s only you and you fiancé that know about key things you want to happen on your day. Your guests will likely enjoy your day no matter what. The most important part is that you get married.

I got tense in the final build up however by the Wednesday evening (got married on a Friday) it was all done and I relaxed. It was damp on our wedding day and cold, the vicar fell over and nearly cracked his head open (thankfully not) but nothing bothered me. I had been so worried about walking down the aisle in front of everyone however once the day arrived I was so calm. Talk to whoever you need to to vent the feeling a so they are not bubbling away inside (that only makes the final explosion worse). Make your to do list, work through it and then enjoy your day x

My only moment was when I found out there were Christmas decorations at the venue and they promised there wouldn’t be! Later I found out my husband to be was yelling at staff to remove trees and gaudy decorations out of our ceremony room!

At the end of it all, it's just a day. It will pass at the same rate as any other day in your life, no matter what you do or what's going on. It's the rest of your lives together that's the important bit, not the few hours of celebration at the start.

Halo Top, Breyers, Oppo and WheyHey. Ice Cream with less calories so you can have both ;)

meditation/yoga/scented candles/reading. All helps to de-stress. Make a list of stuff that needs to be done if necessary and ask your family/bridal party to help out if they can. I was exactly the same and in tears the morning of my wedding but the day went smoothly and by the time I had got to the end of the aisle I was relaxed. It's going to be OK xxxx

If you haven't already, write down what you still need to do, and by when. Tick things off as you go. Try and keep busy with other stuff - it's only a party really, and if it's anything like my wedding you could forget a load of things and muddle through, and the guests won't notice! I forgot my bra on the day, but it was fine, we figured it out

I've got 2 weeks left, a few weeks ago the phrase "Calm down/Don't worry, it'll get done" really got me grinding. I wasn't even stressed about anything until they said that lol. It was related to flowergirl shoes of all things haha

I had one bridezilla moment, and it was when the company I was hiring a 7 seater car off told me that the wedding before mine (which they hadn't told us about) had moved their wedding back an hour and they couldn't do ours with that car any more, and they told us 3 weeks before the wedding. I exploded. Told them as they had no more 7 seaters they would need to provide 2 cars to fit people in and they refused, said they would give us a refund, didn't so had to chase it up. Ended up with a limo from another company who were lovely, but still had a week of abusive texts from the first company owner demanding to know who we booked with and telling me he had been ringing round asking companies if I had booked with them. So there was a lot of shouting and snapping from me for a week. Lush bath bombs, candles and wine got me through, and of course my lovely hubby of 4 years now. Everything will work itself out so do not worry X

Don’t put so much pressure on yourself! You’re marrying the person you love, that’s the important bit, the rest is just a party! So relax, enjoy the build up cos once it’s over, it’s over forever! Everything will fall into place and you’ll have a great time as long as you don’t make yourself ill now! On the day, put on your dress, go say your vows and then celebrate with your friends and family - easy! Good luck and enjoy every minute xx
