@jemb1986:  DH and I got engaged of December of 2010 and we were planning for our wedding in August of this year. I got tons of stuff done, decor, vendors, etc, and then we decided to elope on May 3rd. Honestly, I thought time was going to crawl, but it totally flew by!

Doing DIY projects like mypinkshoes said was a huge time killer, and also making a few Pinterest boards with hair/makeup inspiration, decor, and stationary helped a lot as well. It will be here before you know it!

@jemb1986:  If you already have your dress, I think your waiting time is a great opportunity to look into your wedding hairdo, veil style, makeup, shoes, color themes for wedding/reception, gift registry selections, etc.

I have stayed preoccupied by reading the bee forums because I have so much to relate to with the women here. Most of us are going through the same thing.

If none of that works, try working extra hours or on one of your hobbies. Your day will be here before you know it Cool

@jemb1986:  Hmm, that’s a tough one! I did a wooden sign that we wound up not using since we just eloped, but we’ll be using on our wall around the pictures. I loved doing that one. 🙂 I also did an adorable aisle runner made out of sand mats and lined the 60ft of edges with silk rose petals, but our puppy thought it was a great toy. I also designed our elopement announcements (and the invites, before we knew we were eloping) and I loved those as well

 

Here’s the aisle runner. I painted it myself and then did the lining with the silk petals and a hot glue gun. All in all, about 20 hours of work and it was destroyed in about 2 minutes. How the heck do they do it?!

 

 

The wooden sign. It was was going to go onto a post and get stuck into the sand, but now it’ll all just be put onto the wall with our wedding photos 🙂

@jemb1986:  DIY projects for SURE. we are in a lull right now too, so I’m trying to be proactive and use it to catch up on making my bouquet and putting together our invitations. I’m also using the extra time to make tons of lists and constantly refine and organize everything.

@jemb1986:  I would take the chance to take a step back and enjoy the non-wedding world for a bit. I currently wish I had more time for hobbies and to spend time with my friends!

@jemb1986:  I’m in the same situation, but the reality is no one is going to be as excited about your wedding as you are. Even my maids that are close rarely talk to me or ask me about wedding stuff and that’s ok. Everyone has their own lives. My thing is, I know I’m not going to want to get in the weeds with lists and projects and organizing in the weeks right before the wedding, so I’m trying to knock it all out now so I can worry about other things that I need to worry about closer to time.
