My destination wedding is next April in the Dominican Republic and I still haven’t sent out my STDs. I don’t know what I’m waiting for. I have them picked out and all I have to do is order them. Well, I need to decide which wedding website I’m going to use first, weddingwire.com or theknot.com But that’s it.
What’s wrong with me? Cold feet?! I wanted to send them out 1 year in advance. Now here we are with less than 10 months to go. I do have a lot going on…in grad school part time, job is stressful, looking to buy a house this year. But you make time for what’s important, right?
I don’t know what my issue is. *sigh*

10 months is still quite a chunk of time. I think you’ll be okay.

@Reign14: You should definitely get on it. It’s best to send out STDs sooner rather than later for destination weddings. I would have sent them out a year in advance, with invitations following at least four months in advance.
Think about your guests. The longer you wait, the less likely they will be able to take time off work or find affordable travel arrangements. Don’t let a wedding website be the hang up. What’s more important, having the perfect wedding website or making sure your guests have time to plan for your wedding?

I think 10 months is plenty of time still. Is there some other reason why you think it’s cold feet?
My wedding is the last weekend in August, and I still need to send invitations. We wanted to send them out 8 weeks in advance (we already did STDs) but I haven’t even made them yet! I know it’s not cold feet, I’m just a procrastinator. Instead I spent last night putting together inspiration boards for each separate part of our wedding, because that was totally necessary and a priority over invitations.

I’m glad to hear that 10 months is still enough time. I’m definitely going to get them sent before the 9 month mark. Definitely. I think it’s just stress in every area of my life that is stopping me from getting on the ball. School, work, home, some relationship issues, then my mom felt the need to have the talk and point out everything wrong with FI, but she still loves him and approves. I was procrastinating before she did that anyway so that wasn’t the cause. I even thought about pushing the wedding to August, then there wouldn’t be so much planning pressure on top of renting our condo, house hunting, moving, and graduation in December. All of a sudden I feel like I’m doing too much all at once. But it all needs to be done!
