After New Years, I realized that I’m getting married this year. And it freaked me out. I have all the major things done- We have a venue, we’ve got food, we’ve got a photographer, I’ve got a dress and he has a suit, our bridal party is picked and they know what they need to get. But I feel like there’s so much more to do- I haven’t thought of invites, or decor, or my hair/makeup/shoes, or flowers, or how we’re going to get from our house to the venue, or the ceremony order, or cake, or any of the other smaller details. We don’t have a DJ, or an MC. We also haven’t gotten our rings yet. Writing it down makes it seem like there’s
I’m just feeling like there’s SO much to go and not enough time. The wedding is in July and it’s coming so close. And since I’m feeling like there’s so much more to do. And I don’t want to do it. I’m just getting so overwhelmed with how much is left!
Anyone else feeling like this? Espeically those mid 2014 brides. It’s just so freaking much at this point. And any one have any advice on how to continue moving forward?

I suggest searching for a wedding planning timeline that suits your needs. For example, you could google “6 month wedding timeline”. I just did that and I got some helpful results. You could also google “How to plan a wedding in 6 months” and see if any of those results are helpful to you.
Writing everything down is a good thing to do, even though it doesn’t feel like it. After you write everthing down you can cross off the things that aren’t necessary, and you can find simple alternatives for items and tasks that can be simplified.

@DelilahDiamond: This is exactly how I felt a month ago. I just told myself to do one thing at a time since that little meltdown. Since then, I have done my homemade card box, bride/groom chair signs, I’m sending out an email tonight to a videographer I’ve been talking to letting him know we’re booking him, my girls ordered their bridesmaid dresses, I ordered our invitations a few weeks ago and they came in and look awesome, just ordered shoes today. I’m two months away and still don’t have a florist. I really need to figure out that bit now…
Just breathe and make a list. That’s what I did. I started freaking out of all the things I needed to do that I started freaking out and made a list. It made me feel A LOT(!) better. Something about seeing everything in writing and knowing exactly what i needed to do calmed me. So make a list, and slowly start checking it off! I know others won’t agree, but breathe, you’ve still got plenty of time for all those detail things you need to do. You’ve got all the big ticket items and that’s the most important of all. You’ll be fine. 🙂

Just breathe. You have enough time, I promise. Make a list and tackle one thing at a time and you’ll get it all done. I got married at the beginning of June and didn’t start planning until February. I also made all of my decorations within that timeframe.
