How is it possible that I only have two months to the day and I have so much crap still to do?!?! I’m kind of losing it. Not full on losing it but just my brain is totally overwhelmed and I keep thinking of things still on the to-do list. Somehow it keeps growing instead of shrinking. FI’s (and everyone else’s) response is OH it will all get done. Don’t worry so much! Not at all a helpful response.
Where my 8/21 girls at? Are you having “a moment” today?

OK I refuse to believe that I’m the only one who feels this way.
8/21/10 bride FAIL

I have my comprehensive exams for my PhD in a week (written exam) and a week and a half after theat the oral exam and so that has taken over my brain!
The 2 months thing is scary but I have to get past one obstacle before I can move onto my never-ending list of to do’s.
The things that I have to get down during this week because my fitting is 2 days after the written exam is finish my DIY veil (just have to glue it on to the comb properly) and finish my DIY hot pink crinoline.
Really I am soooo stressed I am just taking it one day at a time!

Well I’m an 8.14.10 bride and I still have five million things to do. It’s like getting one thing done actually adds stuff to do. Yes. I’m so overwhelmed I’m starting to procrastinate. Oh well…even if I totally mess up the name cards or forget the chair covers, we’ll still be married in the end, right?

Aaaah OK there are my August girls. Phew.
@FutureMrsMartin – EEK! I can’t even imagine having a Ph.D. on my plate in addition to everything else. You totally win.
@TheFutureMrsK – I hear you on the procrastinating. It almost feels like I’m mentally paralyzed by the amount of stuff on the to-do list.
Can I just mention we don’t have wedding bands? Yeah.

dont feel alone I’m august 22, 2010 and i am sitting here working on finishing my semi-d-i-y invites as we speak…still to do book a make up artist and I broke up with my hair dresser lol so I need to get that straight my fifth bridesmaid who is my sister still hasn’t ordered her dress, the baker for our venue has not returned our call in over a month and I’m just now setting a date this weekend to sign the contract for the photographer. If it makes you feel any better my fiance has the same response he always says stop stressng it’ll all come together just oblivious to all the minor details and planning that has to be done.

Another one here!
My days and nights are completely immersed in our to-do list.
It WILL get done, girls 🙂

I’m just trying to take it one day at a time. Everything that we have left to do is the “extra” type of stuff. If it gets finished, cool, if not, life and the wedding will go on. Just try to do one thing each day, and your to-do list will dissapear quickly!

Umm yeah! BIG TIME brain a-spload over here! This weekend I went nuts and went through all my contracts and papers to make sure I had all my deadlines and tasks planned out in my appointment book. I started freaking out last week, which is what prompted that.
I feel like we have alot to do for the ceremony. We had out first meeting with the church liturgist on Saturday where she gave us a worksheet and a book to read and told us all the stuff we need to choose.
Today I am feeling anxious for sure.
I keep feeling like I am forgetting something. And since FI isn’t really doing any planning that makes me freak out more because I feel like if something doesn’t happen it is MY FAULT.
I go through the weddingwire and knot’s checklists to make sure everything is getting done.
Another thing stressing me out is the RD. FMIL still hasn’t planned any of it and that makes me anxious. She is so wishy washy. Every time I talk to her about it she says “Oh, we’ll figure it out. We just have to figure it out.” GAH!!!!!

“We’ll figure it out” is the most annoying effing response. I’ve been getting a lot of that. It’s like how about we ACTUALLY FIGURE IT OUT not talk about the fact that it will be figured out.
I wish I was one of those people that just floats through life all la di da, kumbaya, just letting things happen and not ever planning anything and somehow it magically just works for them. But I’m not. And I don’t understand how those people successfully pull off a wedding.

I am refusing to acknowledge the date so that way I don’t have a panick attack. I feel like I have so much to do not just with my wedding but our house that we are moving into when we come back from the honeymoon. I feel like I’m so behind, I’m hoping to finish my invites and send them out tonight because I am starting to get phone calls asking where they are.

@roxy – yeah we haven’t gotten our invites yet and like three people this weekend at my MOH’s bday party asked me if we called off the wedding. My response was for them to STFU if they don’t want to be disinvited.

Every time I think about all of the things I still have to do i feel like vomiting. It doesn’t help that I pour over this website all day looking at everyones awesome little details and big plans. Waaaaaay too much thought and not nearly enough action happening. ::sigh::

I’m a week later (08.28), but beginning to feel the heat. The only real issue I’m stressing about right now are the invites, which are not done yet – and some older relatives are starting to seriously &^#$% to my mom about “where is my invite!!!???” They have already made hotel and airplane reservations, they know where everything is taking place – so damn, what’s the worry????!!!! You’ll get your invitation!
The main issue with the invitations is that I thought (stupidly), that I could print up the RSVP inserts myself – big FAIL. So, I have had to go back to my printer, who I hope will have them done this week. I also need to buy RSVP envelopes (oops, just remembered that right now), and postage.
I haven’t had any fittings for my dress – but I did make the appointments. Still need to pick out songs for the DJ, decide if we are hiring or firing the pretty flaky jazz band (for cocktail hour), and need to make up all my DIY paper goods: place-cards, table numbers, menu cards, etc.
Oh, and I need to either order some flowers from 50flowers, or go to a flower shop and order my bouquet. A million other little things.
