Hello…. 39 days till wedding here…que COMPLETE MENTAL BREAK DOWN.
I feel so behind… but I have no clue what I am behind on.
I have never been to a wedding much less planned one. I feel like i am forgetting a million things and everyone is going to show up and laugh at me. <br />All my brides maids keep asking what they can help with but.. I dont have anything.
All I really have left is to finish are painting some of the centerpices and then table assignments.
But I keep having nightmares where people look at me and ask where this thing or that thing is and I just.. am losing it.
Why did I think I could plan a 150 person wedding having never attended a wedding myself.

Ibblet: Relax. Take a breath. The vast majority of things we do to plan a wedding would be missed by no one if they were forgotten or absent.
I assume you are working from some sort of checklist? Just keep ticking off the boxes and you will be fine.
If you have the bride, the groom the officiant, the license, the witnesses, you are good to go.

Find the longest, most detailed checklist you can online, and go by that to make sure you don’t miss anything. Keep in mind there will be things on it that you definitely don’t need, but it will help you realize if you’ve forgotten something. Don’t worry, I’m still 9 months out and I’m constantly checking my to-do list in case I’m forgetting something important.

Ibblet: I hear ya, i thought i had everything under control till this month and then i realised there was so much i had forgotten, calm down write a checklist it’s what i did once i wrote a list and ticked everything off i realised i had about 5 things to do and it wasn’t that bad.
Make sure you have a list of all vendors and when they need paid and check them off as you pay them, and make sure to get reciepts.
Get yourself a wedding folder like a physical one not a digital one,print everything off,all digital reciepts invoices the lot, i find i panic less when i have a sheet of paper with everything on in my hands. When you are feeling stressed take it out and look at everything you have done and compare it to your checklist and you will realise you have done more than you think. 🙂

hire a DOC if you can afford to; he or she will set you straight and calm your nerves.
