So, after 17 months of our engagement being spent doing mostly vendor-related stuff, the wedding is less than 6 months away and our guests are starting to book their hotels and airfare. I just realized two things: 1) this is SO exciting! and 2) I have so much stuff to do!!! With figuring out how to get people to and from the airport, rehearsal, etc etc since so many of our guests are going to be coming in from out of town! I have a serious case of stressful excitement right now, I can’t concentrate on anything else!! Is anyone else in the same boat?!

YES! Our wedding is 177 days away (who’s counting?!) so we’re officially past the 6 month mark! I have so many things left on the to-do list (like actually SENDING save the dates 😉 It’s so exciting and nerve wracking!!!

it comes in spurts. I get excited, very overwhelmed and then on a huge "list-checking" binge.
Congrats on making it so far…you’re almost there! Glad you’re taking time to just enjoy this exciting time!

The excitement also came in waves for me. Now that my wedding is over I sometimes miss the excitement of the wedding planning. I think that is why I’m addicted to weddingbee!

I’m just shy of the six month mark but I haven’t gotten the stressful excitement yet. I’ve just got the STRESS!
I’m worried that I won’t be able to handle everything in time or that I’ll forget something or something will break down or fall apart before the wedding.
Then other times it feels like the wedding is forever away and will NEVER get here. I just can’t win, can I?? 😉

Lists, lists, lists! Lists are my favorite! 🙂 🙂
Write lists by month, then within the month by week, and then you can even do it by day! This will help to get some of the stress off (well it works for me, some people are allergic to lists!! ha) because it will make the tasks seem more manageable.
Also – delegate! Are any of your bridesmaids or mom or FMIL ready willing and able to help? What about your fiance — give him those annoying tasks of tracking down addresses or contract details.
Good luck, I’m jealous – I am just about 1/2 of the way through my 20 month engagement so I’m still only doing the big things … for you, it’s now time for the FUN! and the BIG event!!! 🙂
