BurlapnLace:  I advise all brides to get things done as early as possible.  It’s far less stressful to have too much time on your hands rather than not enough, especially when it comes to wedding planning.  If you really feel like the stress of planning is getting you down, you could always just elope and have a casual get together later.

I am soo just ready for it to be here! We have 25 days to go and work and finals are taking up alll my time. I didn’t have any of the stuff you mentioned done until like 3-4 months before so don’t stress too much! Everyone keeps asking when they need to be where and I’m like uhhh I’ll get back to you lol My dress is 6 sizes too big, finalllly bought shoes yesterday! Still don’t have jewelry, garter, etc. It doesn’t help that 130 people did not RSVP! Most said “You know I’m coming why do I need to send it?” Um because idk how many of you are coming and it already has a stamp just send it lol My seating chart is due to the venue is like a week and I still don’t have all my RSVPs in and I’m away at school trying to get everything together for graduation and starting grad school 4 days before the wedding. Man I am soooo ready for this honeymoon!

BurlapnLace: not sure if this would help….. When I was planning my wedding (I did 90% of the planning myself) I used one of those wedding timelines that are available on the knot or other wedding websites to keep me focused.  I found that the timeline gave me a good idea of when I need to have things done.    Another thing that I did, was that I made it a mission to have wedding free weekends with the now DH every once in a while.  I needed time away from planning my own wedding.  

 

Do you need any help or suggestions with flowers, invites, etc????  I might be able to give you some suggestions……

I’m over it in the fact that I feel like November is so far away yet so close. It’s so many little things now and trying to keep track. The money is so annoying. Lol it’s like everytime I turn around I’m paying something. I am so over waking up thinking about the wedding. I am like why am I thinking about this at 6am on a Tuesday. its like a wedding on auto or something.

BurlapnLace:  I am not going to lie, I was in total wedding mode for like the first 4 months and now I am just like “hmm, I can wait until next weekend.” I was so excited now I don’t really care lol. I still have to get my BM’s gifts, pick out the guys suits, decide on my flowers, have my food tasting, discuss rehursal dinner with my FIs parents, cake tasting?? what the heck!

Early on I took care of all the things I cared most about – venue, food, dress, and photographer, and I was really excited!

Now what I have left are little details (picking out linens, lights, hotel, etc.) and DJ/ceremony music, and I really don’t care much about them. I’m finally going to meet with a florst, and while I LOVE flowers, I know I am going to be super dissapointed with what is actually in budget, so I’ve been putting it off.

Also, I used to love looking at wedding ideas on pinterest, now it’s all starting to look the same!

BurlapnLace:  I think we talked before. We are date twins. Yay. I feel the same though stagnate. Nothing good going on just a little bored with it all at this point. Lol

BurlapnLace:  my wedding is a DW so people have to take more time off. 😐 with that though we are having around 56 most of them have already booked their vacation so I know they are going. We have some people who told us they couldn’t and we totally understand. Most of our guests are super pumped. I sent out my save the dates a year in advance to give people plently of time to plan or tell us they can’t make it. Most weddings I attend now are on Fridays anyways! 

Oair wedding is early also! At 2:00 but everyone seems to be planning to get there a day or two before and I took care of the transportation for them. That was so stressful. 

Im now trying to do all the little stuff gifts, invites blah. I’m slacking on the small stuff. 

Have people been giving you and grief about the time ?

BurlapnLace:  I am totally with you. We’re 4 months out. I was never enchanted with planning to begin with, my fiance is the one who wanted a nice wedding and I agreed to it because I love him and I wanted him to have the wedding he wants. Now it’s just a giant drag and every time someone asks me if I’m excited, I have to hold back from rolling my eyes and making gagging noises. 

Can’t wait till it’s over and my life is back to normal.
