FI was just given a conditional hire for EMS in North Carolina and he starts March 4th. This is exactly what we were hoping for, but now we have to move the wedding up to FEBRUARY 23. I don’t even have my dress altered yet and basically nothing is planned! Luckily we’re having a small wedding of 35-40 people at my mom’s house in Lake Arrowhead California, but we have so much on our plates now between new jobs, moving across country, and getting married all within a month! Someone help me calm down please…

@Cory_loves_this_girl: First, breath (and congrats to your FI on the job). Do you really have nothing planned? Given your original wedding date is about 5 months away, I would think you had some stuff figured out, right?
At least you have your dress, I would go to a seamstress asap and get the alterations going. Then, figure out what things need to be set in motion. You have your venue, but are you doing catering or making it yourselves? What about the cake? A photographer? Wedding party attire (f you have one)? It would probably be best to let them wear what they have if you haven’t already ordered something.
It can be done, but it will be tight. Good luck!

Calm down! You have about a month to get everything taken care of. My FI and I moved from NY to SC recently so I totally get moving states. Ask me if you have any questions!
As for the wedding, I’m sure you can get it planned and finished within that time. More has been done in less! At least you have your dress – that’s the one thing that takes the longest time.
Good luck! And congrats to your FI!

@bmo88: Thanks! I honestly don’t have very much planned because we were waiting to find out if he was getting the job, and they originally told him that it would be in April if he did. Since we’re have a smaller informal-ish wedding, we didn’t have very much planned. we dot really have a wedding party, just my MOH, so she just needs to find a dress. FI will be wearing jeans and boots an a nice shirt so that shouldn’t be too hard. MOH mom is making our cake and were getting food from Costco. I’m going in to have my dress fitted on Thursday. I think I’m concerned because I not have time for a bachelorette party or shower or anything…oh well!
