Remember when I said I wasn't stressed at all about planning? That changed!

nestle:  GIN AND TONICS!!


Oh wait, you said no alcohol? Darnit. I’m relatively chill, but my FMIL is crazy stressed out about it and I’ve been pouring them down her throat, and that calms her down nicely. 

On to actual advice. The piece of advice I received is, “No one cares about your wedding as much as you do.” (This is a corollary to, “No one cares about anything going on in your life as much as you do, don’t bore your friends though your mom will probably listen to you babble.”) This is SO TRUE. No one cares except you about flowers/dress/whatever. So don’t worry what other people think, just stay within budget and don’t sweat the small stuff. Try to enjoy the process. Seriously, this stuff is fun. You get to eat cake and different kinds of food! You get to have a big party all about you! You get to buy a pretty dress and get your hair and makeup done! Your best friends and loved ones will all be there! Focus on that stuff. 


Best of luck and have fun!

Remind yourself that you’re getting to marry the love of your life and treat yourself to a bunch of pedicures and blowouts. I’m currently living at my local blow dry bar and nail salon. Hahaha.

Chip away at it a little bit at a time and do everything earlier than you think you should 🙂

Make a list and get done anything you CAN get done now. Checking things off is deeply satisfying and will reduce some stress. If there’s anything you can delegate, choose a reliable person and delegate it with a deadline and some buffer time. Anything DIY? Do it now. Anything you need to do trials of and may take a while? Start now.

Five months goes quickly, but if you know what all you have to do and prioritize the list, you should have no problem! And yes, enjoy it!
