OMG! Last time I looked it was like 120 days…eeek time flies.  Finishing invitations, getting them printed, and just working on the small stuff.  I’m kind of at that point where I can’t do much else until closer to the wedding, which is driving me crazy!

OMG! I’m with you guys too! I already have so much done it’s insane and now it’s only 95 days till the wedding and I can’t really DO anything till it gets closer! Thankfully we just got our invitations in (they’re fabulous and custom designed which sounds so expensive but they weren’t =D) So that’s the next big project for now!

I know as soon as May hits time will fly and i"ll be pretty busy!

So exciting!  I still have 10 days til we hit double digits, but it did occur to me to check a couple of days ago.  How is everyone doing? I feel like there’s a lull in my planning right now, which is nice, but I’m sure that’s soon to end…

Our invitations are going to be designed in a couple of weeks, I sent a deposit to the calligrapher I’ve fallen in love with, and my mom and maid of honor are scouring the Southeast for cut glass pitchers to put flower arrangements in at the reception, so I think everything’s under control! July will be here before we know it.

Whew!  I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one who hasn’t had the invites designed yet.  But my BIL is doing them for us, so I think our turn-around time will be shorter than if we were going with someone else.

Okay, I’ll admit that hearing that so many others already have their invites makes me nervous! There was some miscommunication with our designer, apparently. Initially she told me that she had planned to do the design work "in April" and that if I wanted the invitations earlier, I should just ask. So, um, I asked, and was told, "Oh, I really can’t possibly do them any earlier." FI and I LOVE her work, though, so I’m hoping it will be worth it in the end. In order for the calligrapher to have time to do her work, that means that our guests will be getting their invitations only about a month before the wedding, and the wedding is at the height of vacation season, so I’m worrying that no one will show up… but I’m just trying not to stress about it… and obviously not completely succeeding 😉

Hi fellow 7/11 Bees!  I’m new to the hive and when I saw this I knew this had to be my first reply.

I got engaged in December and got my venues, photographer and dress within two weeks of getting the ring on my finger.  Then I decided oh I have plenty of time for everything else and just stopped planning.  I had a meeting with my reception site coordinator on Saturday and she asked a bazillion questions which I did not have the answers to.  So now I’m kinda freaking out because everyone is suddenly popping out of the woodwork saying, you only have 3 months…book stuff already!!

Luckily I have a quiet work week, so I’ve devoted most of my work hours to the wedding.  I bought my invitations, figured out the reception decor, booked a DJ and planned the honeymoon over the past two days.  Some of the big things I have left are figuring out the cakes, convincing FI he needs to go pick out a tux, actually booking the honeymoon,and planning the ceremony content.

I don’t know about everyone else, but I have a feeling the next three months will zip by before we know it!
