Meltdown #1

I guess it had to happen – I had a pretty “emotional” weekend.

It hit me on Saturday that I have less than a year (InshAllah) left until the wedding and I have barely done anything. I also realized that next month is Ramadan, so my wedding planning will be pretty minimal – I’d rather be making the most of Ramadan than meeting with vendors. So with one month less than I had scheduled for myself, I panicked.

Here’s what was going through that crazy head of mine:

  • The realization that I have one less month than I thought… not to mention the fact that I am way behind on my to-do list. Yes, I still have almost a year. I know. But with the one-year mark past us, we need to get things done asap.
  • It also hit me that my mother-in-law is leaving soon which means Nouman and I have to finalize alot of things. Quickly.
  • I’ll be ordering my own bridal clothes before the end of this year (InshAllah) – while this is exciting (YEAY to shopping!), it is a huge task. I have always know what my 4 main outfits will look like (Mayoun, Mehendi, Shaadi and Valima), but I haven’t found a picture for 2 of my outfits. The picture is in my head – I have to somehow find a way to translate it onto paper and then get a tailor to understand me. Tougher than many of you might think. Thankfully, I have a talented sister who is going to help draw it out for me.
  • From the massive collection of pictures I have saved over the years, I have to narrow down what I want for my jahaiz outfits. Obviously, I am going to decide most of my jahaiz outfits at the store where I will get my clothes from. But, I do want to pick out my colours, certain styles, etc before.

The list is endless, so I’ll stop.

Basically, I started off by snapping at everyone on Saturday… which then led to me crying and laughing like a lunatic. It was actually pretty funny.

Just a little overwhelmed.

    I’ve had a few meltdowns over the last few weeks. Now that we’re into 10 months I feel like there is no time left.
    Honestly, we just have to hope that everything will come together the way that its supposed to. Fact of the matter is, I don’t care about the wedding day so much as I care about being married to the man I love. Unfortunately, due to several family standards/wishes I have to do the big wedding day thing too.

    Good luck Shaza! I’m glad we can go through the same sort of thing together… even if you’re doing it x5!

      Exactly, 10 months doesn’t seem that far anymore!
      We’ll get through it and everything will come together. Seems to be my mantra since Saturday.

      Thanks so much Steph – it feels good to share the same feelings with others like you 🙂
