Just felt the need to look at the wedding countdown on my phone and my wedding is 200 days away! That is insane!
I have so much to do and not much done… I’m starting to feel the panic… Someone tell me I have plenty of time even though I have barely started!
I have spring break coming up in less than 3 weeks and summer vacation starting in June so I think I can get a lot more done when I’m free to work on stuff all day, every day. Not this school + work + wedding stuff nonsense 😉
On my calendar, I have “all wedding-related tasks must be done” 11 days before the wedding…
What about you guys?

@alotlikelove: You have plenty of time! I’m 8 days after you!! I try to focus on everything I HAVE done along with what I have yet to do. That way it’s not quite so overwhelming.
I still have to decide on a DJ (I’m stuck between two and it’s not an easy decision), but I have ALL of the other deposits put down already (venue, photographer, flowers).
I just ordered our Save the Date magnets and made an Excel spreadsheet of the guest list to keep track of addresses and RSVPs.
What all do you have left to do?

@alotlikelove: Date twin!! Yayyy I can’t believe there is only 200 days left to go! I have a lot done, but there is still PLENTY left to do. I’m sure once you can spend more time focusing on wedding related things, your to-do list will quickly diminish. I know that I go through spurts of wedding planning.. a whole week where I accomplish nothing, and then the following week I get tons and tons done. You’ll get to where you need to be!! 🙂

- Wedding: October 2013 - The Down Town Club, Philadelphia
Since we will be flying out to Philly a week before the wedding, I’m going to try my best to have every wedding related task done three weeks before. So, two weeks before we leave home.
My list is definetly getting smaller, but I still have a fair amount of things to do.
200 (well, 192 for me!) does NOT seem like enough time!
Just imagine how we will feel at the 100 day mark!

I feel the same way! It seems like there’s still so much to do and not enough checked off the list. I am still struggling to figure out flowers and centerpieces, so I have been putting off meeting with a florist until I have a better idea of what I actually want! :/ Once I get the checked off the list, I will for sure feel a lot better! I have most of the big things out of the way, like church, venue, dress, photographer, DJ, Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, Save-The-Date Cards, honeymoon, and cake…now to just work on everything else! LOL
Don’t stress too much- it will all come together! Like starz, I also go through spurts! You will get there and it will be great- plus you are getting married on an awesome day! 🙂

I’ve been trying to plan stuff for so long but theres still soooo much time between now and then. I know ppl say it will go by fast it will go by fast. Uh I’ve been engaged over a year now and I’m ready to start finalizing things! But theres so much we can’t finalize because we don’t know how many ppl r coming. We can’t set a budget for flowers, food, cake, favors, decor or activities yet (its a destination). My dress still won’t be in for 5 months so its hard to accessorize. Basically all I can do MORE research and plan ‘ideas’. I’m ready to be ready NOW!
