@Audrey2: 5.5 months now (;
We have pretty much everything booked (besides the honeymoon..the flightand hotel costs keep going down each day, so we are gambling to see how low we can get haha).
The things that don’t need to be booked are all planned out and we are just waiting until the wedding is a little closer to buy/rent.
I feel like we are on track with everything. The only thing kind of stressing me out right now is getting my dress altered. It’s currently sitting in my parents house, I still have to make appointments to get it altered, but it’s hard because I live in a different city for school. Do you know roughly how long it takes to alter a dress? I’m wondering if I can just wait until march break to do it, which leaves about 4 months .

@Brace2014: My dress might not come in until April, so I really hope that’s enough time! I will be having it taken it at the waist, possibly shortening the skirt and having a bustle put in.
I’m actually pleased with the amount we’ve got done since I wrote this post! We’ve got my band and shopped for FI’s, filled in the missing pieces of our ceremony, had our tasting with the caterer and thought a lot about flowers and decorations.
Glad you’re feeling good about most things too! We still have so much to do but I think we’re chipping away at the list little by little… 🙂
