@LibbyMorris:  I’m your wedding date sister! LOL We’re getting married May 2nd 🙂 I’m in a similiar boat with you…we are having a long (year and a half engagement) so pretty much everything is done at this point.  Next month I’ll start on the invitations, and its just the small details that need to be ironed out…I like not having too stress out and being able to enjoy our engagement!

@LibbyMorris:  my whole side of the family and almost my whole bridal party are from out of town plus some out of state family so we probably will have 50 plus out of town guests. time has definitely flown by for us! I started working on invitations last night… It’s so exciting! all the bridal festivities start in February so I figure from there everything is gonna be nonstop! I have my third dress fitting later this month too 🙂

I am getting married May 1st also but we just got engaged and we are having a garden ceremony with just the two of us. I have already started working on my bouquet & other plans but I am finding that since we kept it just to us there is almost no stress. When we send out the announcements I am sure there will be (because of his family).

The only thing I am worried about is not being able to get a dress from David’s Bridal in time (my appointment is for Feb. 1st) and to help that I am opening myself up to different ideas other than A-Line type dresses. Whatever looks good on me hehe. I am just so happy to finally be getting married.

I agree I’m all set except for booking my hair and makeup person (early next month) so now I’m left with obsessing over the small details…May can’t arrive any sooner

@LibbyMorris:  I’m a month away and at 4, 3, and 2 months there’s nothing to really stress over.  Though minimal for me, wait until RSVPs start rolling in.  It gets kind of hairy at that point and you might get pissed at all the people that didn’t RSVP, assumed they could add a +1 and etc.

I don’t feel that stressed either!  I think it’s also because our planning has gone in waves…we made a lot of big upfront decisions at first, now we’re finalizing the vendor logistics (florist, photog, band, catering, etc) and then in a couple months when the invites go out, we’ll be finalizing the things we need to know for headcount.

Wedding, PLANNED!  Cool

(mostly, haha)

@LibbyMorris:  My planning was stress-free until people in the bridal party started cancelling (“Sorry, I’m moving away for school/to help a relative”; “Sorry, I’ll be too busy for rehearsals…”). Two of them used the “I’ll get back to you…” line as a way to say no, wasting our time.

 

By the time I was asking other friends if they could be bridesmaids, it turns out they have already been asked to be in a wedding 2 months before mine.

 

The last two I asked agreed, although one said she’d have to confirm her participation a little later.

If anyone else drops out I don’t know whom to ask next!

@LibbyMorris:  May 1st is my birthday.

 

I am getting married in May and feel pretty mellow but I think it is because it is a small wedding with minimal planning. Pretty much everything is in place. So no biggie.
