I would forgive yourself for not getting everything done.  My ceremony is in June and I only have some things planned out Save-The-Date Cards, invites which I made myself and ironing out little details.  I am planning from 2000 miles away so I can’t really plan anything else til I go back to the venue and take some pictures and do logistical planning somemore. I’m also unemployed which stinks but its been nice to have this time to get time comsuming planning things out of the way.

When I get stressed I kick back with a nice homeade iced coffee and a little block of dark chocolate, or I go to the gym and exercise.

Instead of planning all of it (because some things you can’t do, like the seating chart) I would make a list of the things you can plan by September 24th, a list of things you can do over each break (thanksgiving, christmas, and spring?), and a list of things you can do after school ends. That way if you don’t finish everything, you at least know where you’re leaving off and you have broken it down into more manageable chunks. And if you finish everything for your 9/24 list and tackle a few items off of the next one then you’re ahead of schedule ;).

@icetea:  Hi fellow grad school bride!  It feels reassuring not to be the only crazy one…  To be totally honest, I really like @asscherlover:‘s advice, make yourself a list now of everything you can get done and be understanding that there’s simply stuff you can’t do until closer to the date.  Do you have family/friends helping you out?  If so, delegate delegate delegate!  I made a google calendar specifically for the wedding and scheduled everything that needs to get done, then shared it with all of them.  This way, they’ll not only have a list of stuff they should do, they’ll also know what I’m up to.  I also frequently over-dose on wedding planning (it gets overwhelming with grad school) so I find that if I take one hour a day to accomplish one thing for the wedding it gives me a break from research.  Good luck!

I feel your pain! I just went back to school too and was hoping to get everything done before. I’m pretty good- but definitely still have quite a bit to plan! No real advice- but I love @asscherlover ‘s advice! I’m also thinking about hiring a DOC. I’m not sure if you’ll be in school during your wedding, but I finish the week before and am thinking, I may want somoene to take over some of the respnsibilities, at least the day of, so I can relax!
