I’m doing most of the wedding decor myself, I’m making the food, and the cake, aswell as invitations. I’m also organizing most other stuff aswell. I have got over a year to sort everything out, but most of it (such as food, cake and decor) is going to have to be last minute. I hate the thought of delegating jobs as I’m a bit of a perfectionist. Am I taking on too many things to get sorted, or is this just a normal thing for a bride that wants her day to be perfect? x

@NolloUK: you are def taking on too much and will be super stressed on the day of.

I’d try to off-load taking care of the food. Since it’s last-minute stuff, and you’re the star of the wedding, that seems like a lot to worry about the day of.
You’ll have enough on your plate as is…

Well, that will be a lot to do at last minute and do you want to get yourself stressed out? I wanted to do more diy, but I was trying to be realistic and realize that I can’t do it all by myself. I am picking some projects that I will diy, but there are some things that I am just going to hire someone else to do it to make sure I am still sane enough when the wedding comes.
Of course you want your wedding day to be perfect, but you are going to stress yourself out more striving for perfection. Believe me, I know cause I have done that to myself. I find that when I stop obsessing things have fallen into place and work out very well.
I think you really need to think about whether or not you have time to do all that want to do and still are able to relax before the wedding/reception. it’s up to you, but I would really think about it before you decide.

I honestly think you’re taking too much on. Your wedding day should be one of the best days of your life, you don’t want to be running around all stressed out and not be able to enjoy it! Even if you’re not actually doing anything on the day of, you’ll wear yourself out the week before.
Is the reason you’re making your own food, cake, and decor a budget issue? If it is, you might want to bite the bullet and delegate some of the stuff. If it’s not, I’d look into some vendors. Invitations you can do well ahead of time, so that won’t be a big deal.

it’s totally normal for someone to want there wedding day to be perfect! but, i’m about to burst your bubble….. wait for it…… it won’t be perfect. something won’t be quiet the way you planned. but it will be GREAT! once you accept that, things will get a little brighter, i promise=) you could do all of that, but you’ll be so fried i doubt you’ll be able to enjoy any of it. it’s one day out of the rest of your lives, make it the best it can be, enjoy the crap out of it! but i think you may be putting to much on yourself. focus on the things that you really feel are the most important, control those as best you can and delegate the rest.
