I’m getting married in two weeks and finals are next week. I have no tips, I’m freaking out haha. But seriously I got a lot done in the summer time.

@mrsztobee:  

I’m sort of in the same boat.

No tips whatsoever. I’m going to graduate school on the weekends and work during the week. I’m pretty much stressed constatntly.

Make sure you enjoy wedding planning. I haven’t because I am trying to do too many things at once.

Also make sure you plan date nights and don’t procrastinate!!

@SouthernBee33:  ahh… I’m in the same situation. I haven’t planned a single thing and I don’t plan on it until winter break. It’s so hard to not plan though!! I constantly have wedding planning in my head and I want to do it- hence me being here. -__-

@SouthernBee33:  time management?? What is this word you speak of?

Im managing my time by not really planning a wedding yet. It lightens the load. The wedding can wait, my grades dont keep themselves up on their own though! 

Hooray for Christmas break. Use your time wisely!

Just take it one day at time, do what’s due first.  Then work projects further out.  DH and I were working full time, taking 2 classes (night class 4x a week), planning the wedding, and looking for a house in the year leading up to the wedding.  Just don’t get overwhelmed and make a plan/lists to help visual things that need to be done.

I take it back I do have a tip. If you’re anything like me I spend tons of time on weddingbee and pinterest, more than necessary. So when you are planning, do real planning and don’t use it as an excuse to surf pinterest. I wasted tons of time I could have used for studying because I was “planning.”

@SouthernBee33:  time management, hot meal, quality time. Too three sacred words these days.

I just got married a few weeks ago and I’m in the same boat:

-full time 2nd year masters student

-work 24-32 hours/week

-20 hour/week unpaid practicum

-wedding planning!

 

Of course the wedding planning is done now 🙂

 

you just have to truck through it! take each task and each day at a time.

I am older than you, but I’m in grad school, and I definitely don’t have as much time as I’d like to devote to thinking about the wedding.  I have a super supportive fiance and family, so I’ve been able to delegate a lot of responsibilities successfully.  It saves me so much time to have my mom call to set up the appointment to taste the food at the venue, or have my fiance meet with the DJ.
