I agree! So many things to do with so little time!! I work out of town for 4 days on / 4 days off so i feel like my time is cut in half!!

My big concern right now is financial.  I have a bank account with a good amount of money set aside but I worry it wont be enough when we start paying everyone out!!!

NurseMandie:  I am a bit nervous and also working on my centerpieces now. They are the most time consuming thing I have left so I will feel better once they are done. Definite spacing issue trying to complete and store them though. 

September brides…when are you sending out your invites and what is your RSVP date? Not sure how much time I should give!

Good luck ladies!!

You haven’t sent out your invites?  We did ours with the 5-6 month window so we’ve had them done for a while now.  RSVP is Aug 1 for our Sept 13 wedding….we’ve gotten most of the responses, though, and we’re only inviting about 30 people.

80 something days for me.  Getting closer but still to far to feel real.

searock:  Not yet. We sent out STD cards in march. I feel like I should do them now but wasn’t sure if it was too early?

STD cards aren’t invitations…we didn’t have STD cards but had seen/called people and let them know.

Many people have to have summer/fall vacation days in and would like an invitation in hand before they take time off.  That and USPS is hellavua slow.  My MIL got hers and sent hers back the next day (she’s about 60 minutes away) and it was still over a week before I got it.  My brother putzed around with his and we just got it last week…2 months later.  My FI’s friends from west-coast Canada got it and sent it right back and it was about 3 weeks, nearly 4 before I got it.

Yeah, so send them out like yesterday.

I’m a little of both. I have been excited for thinking of ideas, and then it all working out. I’m nervous about not getting everything done that I want and the timeline of the day. That actually is my main concern, timeline – before and after the wedding. I kind of wish I would have hired a wedding planner, or may still look into a day-of to calm my nerves about it.

Don’t stress about not sending your invites yet, especially if you sent out STDs. Everyone already knows when it is so they have no excuse. I haven’t sent mine out yet & don’t plan on doing it for another week or 2.

searock:  NurseMandie:  I’m not sending mine out until after the 4th of July… my date is 2nd week in September, I feel like any earlier is too early

We did send STDs out in January tho so people have known about the date for a while.
