So my wedding day is quickly approaching yet the emotions of excitement and anxiousness has yet to overwhelm me. Everything is pretty much set. i had my food tasting last week which was delicious, got alterations to my dress last week. Venues are all booked and rsvps are in. The only things left for me to do are favors and cake. Besides that I am done. All I have to do is sit back and wait…and I thought that in itself would make me nervous but not yet. I am wondering am I the only August Bride thats this cool about things? What have you done already? What is there left to do? Are you really excited yet or has it not hit you? If you could, what would you change? Let me know it all! I’m curious!!!!!!!!

I have nothing left to do except pick up my dress. I’ve already had my final fittings, they are just steaming it for me. I’ve finalized flowers, food, and checked off my list so I could just coast the next couple of weeks. I haven’t felt nervous yet. My mom keeps telling me how much weight she lost from being nervous but not me!

I’m really excited for our wedding day! I was at a wedding last weekend and could barely contain my joy. That said – there is still a ton of work to do! I’m not freaking out yet as we’re on track with tasks and everything. But lots of little projects and details to finish.
I highly doubt we’ll finish everything and be waiting around for the wedding to come! lol – We’ll be busy but it’ll be fun!

All that’s really left to do is the really boring nitpicky stuff, like finalize seating arrangements and make a seating chart and write out a day-of timeline and forward that on to everyone. Monday we’re going to apply for our marriage license since they’re only good for 30 days. We’re also moving across the country this weekend and will have to spend a week in temporary housing until our new home is ready to move into on the 8th… then we’ll have to turn back around and come back to Georgia for the wedding a week later. I think the upcoming move, while inconviently timed, is at least good for keeping me from going TOO crazy with wedding stuff. There’s just not enough time for me to wig out over something silly when we have SO much to get done.

I’m getting very panicked. We only got engaged in May and trying to plan a wedding for 150 people in 3 months is a challenge. I have lots of details to work out and time is going to fly by. I know it will all get done, but I’m getting a little anxious.

@zen bride: I don’t know how I can be so calm. Nothing has hit me yet. Im sure as it gets close I am going to be on the verge of flipping out haha
@PrairieGirl: I am glad that you are enjoying all of the planning! I am sure your wedding is going to be absolutely amazing!
@ohheavenlyday: Although Im sure moving is stressful, I am sure that is a very exciting experience. I will be moving in ith my fiance the Monday after my wedding. I am not moving too far from where I live now and Im stressed! But I could only imagine moving across the country!
@padresgirl: WOW! 3 months for 150 people! I planned my wedding for 30 in 3 months and am ready to jump out the window lol Although its stressful, Im sure it will turn out fabulous!!!
@Pupperoni: I have been with my fiance for 6 years and I feel married too! The excitement has long wore off haha j/k

Honestly I’m starting to get a little stressed, I’m only 12 days out now. Some family will be flying in this week and I still need to work full-time up until 2 days before the wedding, and I feel like I don’t have enough done.
What’s left is just details and some prep stuff. I finished the cake topper today, I still need to book a hotel room for our wedding night and figure out transportation to it / to the airport. I need to figure out who will be washing/returning the items that we are borrowing. I need to buy some of the food we’re serving, and then cook some of it the day before the wedding, as well as wash/iron all the table linens and run the glassware we’ll be using at the wedding through the dishwasher. I need to pick up my dress still. I need to delegate tasks to all of our helpers and get everyone organized. I still need to figure out what music will be playing during the ceremony. I haven’t finished the card box… We need to order the beer kegs & pick up the other drinks. I need to buy the mason jars for our centerpieces and tie ribbons to them, then two days before the wedding I need to trim all of the flower bouquets for the centerpieces. The boutenniers aren’t finished yet either… Oh and I need to do a hair/makeup trial, and buy shoes. And I’m not even 100% positive the groomsmen have their suits yet or know what shoes they’re supposed to be wearing but FH says he’s got it covered… I’m not so sure it’s under control.
Oh, and then there are the countless family gatherings/meetings and final wedding parties/events that are about to happen, combined with my working full time and trying to finish all my DIY projects and planning.
Yep, everytime I think about the list of what needs to be done my chest just fills up with anxiety.
At this moment I just keep thinking of how I’d love to do this over and have a much smaller guest list and a bit larger budget so I could just buy less of everything and pay other people to do all of these things for me (who wants to prepare 16 quarts of pasta salad the day before their wedding?), but it’s too late now and hopefully it’ll all turn out well in the end.

@princesslaserbeam: WOW! First let me give you literally a word of advice….Breathe! I know you have your hands filled with many DIY projects , however, I think the best thing you can do is organize your time. Although you do not have much time, you still have some. Your fiance says that everything is undercontrol for the groomsmen, so if I were you wouldnt concern myself about it. I know us women want everything perfect but we have to let the men be men and handle their business. Besides, there is no reason to stress over something that he says is done seeing as how you have sooo many other incomplete projects to do. Split your days and try to complete atleast 3 projects a day…maybe 2 if you have enough time to do so. Also, you’ve noted that you need to delegate to the helpers..they are your main help! Maybe you should tell them to do the “not so important stuff but still needs to be done” and then from there, dedicate each day to a few things that remain on the to do list! Congrats and Im sure everything will work out perfectly!
