Hey Bees 🙂
So I’m a little over two weeks away from the wedding and the stress is really kicking in (i.e. I’m really starting to regret not just going down to the courthouse). I had originally planned to hire a DOC to take some of the stress away, but things just started working out so that I didn’t need one (for which I am very thankful)…
NOW, though, worry wort me is starting to freak out that I’m going to forget something MAJOR on the day of.
So, did any of you have the same worries? How did you calm your nerves? Did any of those worries come to fruition? What DID you forget? Any advice? Thanks!

i did have a hotel coordinator who was ok but wasn’t great.
since i was going to stay at the hotel the night before i needed to make sure i had everything.
i walked through friday, saturday, and sunday, step by step and make sure i had everything by writing a list of everything i would need i each segment of the weekend.
it worked for me.

Commenting to follow this – I have a coordinator at the reception venue, but I am doing everything else myself. I think the idea about walking through the whole week an listing out everything I’ll need is probably the bes thing to do. I’m afraid I’ll forget something stupid like… an outfit for the next day or… an accessory I really wanted to remember.

I’m still three months away from my wedding, but I’m already in the same boat as you! Of course, I wanted a court house wedding long before we even got engaged, but my fiance wanted the big traditional wedding (go figure). I’m using these checklists to help me stay organized and hopefully not lose my head: http://apracticalwedding.com/spreadsheets/
I don’t know if it will help, but I’m sure you can do it! And then, come back and tell me how you did it 😉

I’m not going to have a coordinator (that I know of) and my plan is just to make lists ahead of time.

skyeblu87: I was just about to post those! I am pre-wedding, too, but I plan on using those to make sure all the things are where they need to be when they need to be. I have a coordinator at the ceremony site and at the reception site. So, I am hoping that they will take care of most everything other than getting things to and from the locations.

jwdesiree: Miraculously I did not forget anything! I had so many nightmares of doing so that I made extensive, crazy-person lists and nothing was forgotten!

Believe me, I’m the queen of lists! I have about four bookmarked on my computer, as well as one as my computer background and a hard copy at my desk that I shuttle back and forth between home and work (you might say I’m a bit obsessive, haha). So, I’m glad to hear that being crazy list lady has worked for the majority of you!!! 😀 I also just emailed the venue manager to see if we can walk through the day(s) before and she said no problem… I can even start setting up the day before for no extra charge!
(And mchitt329: , I hear ya on the nightmares! They’re ridiculous.)
