    I am my most productive at wedding plans at work :).  This is bad, because I really should be focused on the job that  is helping me pay for this big wedding in the first place!!

    I have no solution. It’s bad. And I’m still far away.

    I really  need to get back on track with work and stop focusing on wedding planning, I can only imagine it will get worse as we are still more then 9 months away!

    Ooooo, I definitely have the same problem! My issue at work is that when I’m busy, I’m really busy, but when I’m not I don’t have much to do at all. So if I have a lot to do I can stay focused quite easily, but if I’m not doing much I just give in and plan away.

    Not particularly helpful, sorry!

    OMG…I am so bad!!!  I honestly spend 20 minutes working on the wedding for every hour I am at work…sometimes I literally lose hours when I find an interesting blog….

    SO bad…with the rising unemployment rate, I should definitely be more focused, but the wedding is in 47 days (YAY!!!) and I am so distracted…

    I’ve been pretty good so far. I have, however, started emailing two of my coworkers about my wedding plans. They help me fill my wedding withdrawals during work. The only times I REALLY work on wedding projects is Fridays where there’s really nothing to do. My wedding map is done because of it!

    The only reasons I don’t go on weddingbee or other wedding blogs is because the sites I surf is tracked. And I’m the only one planning a wedding in the office so it’ll be REALLY obvious!! So yeah, that’s been real helpful in terms of getting my mind off the wedding. I just don’t know how it’ll be when I’m down to 30 days! Thankfully, I still have 194 days!

    Besides the fact that it’s way more fun than working (!), many of the vendors and such are only open during regular office hours. There’s only so much I can manage to do on the weekends before I have to give in (gladly) and take care of things at work. 🙂 I’m just glad to know there are many more of us out there that are doing the same thing…helps relieve a little guilt!

    I’ve started to ration my time here because I’ve become so unproductive at work (partially due to wedding planning, partially due to things just being slow lately!)

    Seriously, now I have to try to just check my email, WB and some wedding stuff once in the morning, once at lunch time and a couple times in the afternoon or I get totally carried away.  I still spend more time doing this than I should, but I’m trying to stay disciplined!

    I got almost all of my wedding planning and wedding DIY projects done at work. It was great! My bosses even got in on the wedding planning fun with me! Just one of the perks of working at a small business when things are slow 😀

    I’m a grad student, so other than teaching I’m never really ‘at work".

    That said, it’s really easy to use wedding planning in order to procrastinate… maybe my thesis will finish itself?
