I feel like I just have more to do all the time. I LOVE LOVE LOVE planning this wedding, but there is so much to do. My FI lives out of town, so it’s all on me.
But maybe it’s better that way. I have more control…

lisalulu that must be incredibly stressful! I love having control but when my to-do list started to mutate I am always relieved to shove some of the items off on someone else. Do you have you BMs?

I definitely am feeling overwhelmed as we enter the final month — so many little details to wrap up, and the mister works full-time (plus a part-time job!) making it hard to find time to discuss things…I could do it alone, but prefer to have someone to bounce ideas off of, you know?

I’m just starting, and I already feel the stress (although i am moving in 2 weeks…eek!). It always seems like something new comes up! I am a list maker, and it seems like now that I’m engaged, the list is about 2 pages long usually!

Oh no, I KNOW it’s growing, I just added 2 more things to it this morning. My FI doesn’t help me out at all either. Just 80+ more things to do in 45 days. No pressure right? [insert nervous laughter here]

@LisaLuLu – I am feeling the same way. I am a little bit overwhelmed and my to do list seems like it isn’t budging with only 44 days left. Of course, I am working on things but they just haven’t been completed yet.
Just remember to breathe!

For every thing I cross off, I think of 2 other things, it seems like. Most of them are fairly minor, but it’s still stressing me out a bit. They’re mainly not things I can delegate, either. OK, I admit it. I could delegate if I weren’t so much of a control freak.
Cheer up! You have tons of time compared to me! 🙂

I haven’t experienced this yet with wedding planning, but one thing that I find helps in real life is to add things to the list that you’ve done, and cross them off, so that you’ll feel like you’ve accomplished something. Or you could always make up a separate "done" list.

Just remember – what goes up must come down. All those things you are adding to your to-do list will eventually start being crossed off and the list will get smaller and smaller!
