Some wedding websites like the knot or wedding wire have checklists that are very helpful! I use spreadsheets to keep track of things that need to be done, bills that need to be paid, etc. I find that breaking it down into smaller tasks that can be done over the course of the engagement is very helpful!

@mishy:  I can relate to you… I think lots of brides to be can. I am trying to just take it step by step. I am not a planner and this wedding is still stressful for me even though it is small and actually pretty easy.

Just take each accomplishment in stride. You still have lots of time. Try to enjoy the planning process 🙂 You do have lots done.

I used TheKnot do-do list! For planning.

And check out the recap section… There are a LOT of brides on here who share your fear of being the center of attention, and they have all (so far!) reported having an AMAZING time on their actual wedding day.

Lists are a great way to stave off the anxitiy for some people (I’m one) but they can also add stress too.  I have given this advice before, and I will do it again.  If you want one of those lists, take a big black marker and mark all the stuff you don’t want off the list.  For me it was anything that said Videographer (I didn’t want one, didn’t care, ect)

That said, for an Ocotober wedding, you seem to be pretty on track.  You have the big things covered (where, when, food, entertainment)  Everything else is the details people don’t really notice other than you.  🙂    I am about there for my May wedding, with only having attire off my list in addition to what you have.   Invites are my next big step, but I have pretty much pawned that off on my friend who volunteered to design them.
