Today marks the official one month countdown to the wedding. I have been the poster child (poster bride?) of being calm, cool, and collected throughout this whole planning process.
With only 30 days to go, the pressure is really on to make sure that everything is done. I am beginning to panic that I forgot or will forget to do/plan something really important.
Has this happened to any of you? Are you paranoid about forgetting something?

I’ve been paranoid since the day I got engaged to be honest with you but I’m like that about big things. I’m just learning to trust that I won’t forget anything and that everything will get done in time. Also, I’ve made very detailed and extensive lists time and again.

Ha! That was me in spades, and I married a man who’s practically allergic to planning ahead! I forgot maybe a handful of things the day of. But really, you don’t kick yourself too much over it once it’s done. I know it’s hard to balance the thoughts “it’s just one day, what’s the big deal?” with “this one day will be documented by hundreds of photographs and I’ll look at them forever”. Especially one month out!

I hear ya, I have been engaged 10 months now. Last winter was like eh, its forever away, the spring I finally picked a random date (I got sick of not having an anwser when people asked and FI remembered it so I kept it), summer came and went. Then there was the one year mark…. oh but I still have a WHOLE year!
Irronically, it was the email I got from the Knot at 11 months that put me into panic mode. Altough technically I don’t think I have talked to one venor yet, I have the girls at work call for me…. but I am on here every day and I will be calling my venue (that I have picked but not priced or reserved, luckily not a popluar spot for weddings)
@ sand dollar- maybe we can start a support group for those of us with FIs allergic to planning. He told me do what you want and tell me where to stand and when- I’ll be there. Nice huh.
