@MrsMRS: Yup and I have a planner but I still haven’t done much. We’re getting there but even just the fitness regiment is getting to me. Is it bad if we don’t show up to our own wedding? I just want it all over and done with.

@seabunny: we have the same date. I just sent out my STDs. All of my “major” stuff is done- but it’s all the little things that are starting to drive me crazy, menus, programs, bookiah musicians (why are they all so scattered). I just want to pay someone to do it all. Yikes!

Yeah I try to just focus on one task at a time. So until STDs go out I won’t be doing anything else! lol it’s worked for me so far.

I’m actually freaking out in the opposite way. I feel like i’m pretty much organised, i don’t really know what else to do, and it’s all been too easy, i keep waiting to find out about something super important i’ve forgotten or for everything to fall apart. Exactly 4 months tomorrow. SO EXCITED!

I really haven’t done any wedding stuff in over a month now! All of the vendors are booked and the big stuff (dress, BM dresses, cake, DJ, flowers, etc.) is done. I kept saying I just have the little details to take care of until last week when I actually sat down and made a list of those details…it is overwhelmingly long!
Other than the invitations, which I’m DIYing, it’s all relatively small…buy veil and earrings, finalize ceremony readings and readers, etc. But I can see how it would snowball if you aren’t on top of things. But I actually feel a lot better now that I have written it all out and given myself deadlines for each item.

@sarahg8r: Thats exactly how I got into panic mode. i made a list of all that I have left to do and freaked! Way more than I thought I had left. I also need to stay off of pinterest…I don’t need anymore ideas on what to do – I am already going crazy… I am a bit of a DIYer – so my project list is growing leaps and bounds…..
I keep saying, tonight I am going to cross off at least one item. Then I start and get side tracked (I have a toddler). By the time I put him to bed – momma wants to go to bed.

@MrsMRS: You just sent the STDs? Oh man, I don’t feel so bad. I am supposed to send them tonight….but we will see how that goes.

Oh, I’m SO GLAD others haven’t sent STD’s. I sent out all the ones to people who have to travel 5+ hours, but the closer ones I didn’t send out. I actually still have some addresses to track down. 😛

I’m with everyone else — it’s the details that are starting to pile up now! We still need to:
- Start diet/exercise routine
- Hash out liquor pricing and menu selections (as well as sample those selections) with our venue

- Currently going back and forth with my Etsy person regarding font on our invites. Need to get that straightened out soon because I want to mail them mid-July.l
- Purchase FI’s outfit
- Purchase materials for DIY projects
- Have my hair/makeup trial (scheduled for June 21st)
- Start working with our officiant on the ceremony
- Buy our wedding bands (but not until August)
- Dress fittings/alterations (August)
