129 days for me to be exact.. I think I’m going to have a mental breakdown.. dealing with monster in law has just gotten worse.. and I have had no motivation to do “wedding” things. I feel like I’m falling behind on things and when I really think about everything I still have to do I honestly want to go sit in a corner, crawl up into a ball and cry. Anyone else with me?? I’ve also been more emotional than usual, more stressed and just more of everything. At this point I want everything to be over and done with but there is SO MUCH LEFT TO DO 🙁

Right there with you! We have 128 left and I am so done with wedding planning. A part of me feels like I need to do all kinds of stuff and a part of me is still in the “eh, I have four months, I can wait” stage! I shut down every time someone asks me how the planning is going. I am ready to elope. aaaggghhhh.
Hugs to you! Deep breaths and massages 🙂

@Birdee106: I’m ready to elope as well..and honestly the worst is the constant reminders “OMG your wedding is coming up!” it’s like I know, thanks for reminding me that I don’t have too much time left and that I have a lot to do.

135 days left for me. I’m making paper flowers out of books and i’m no where near finished. It’s really stressing me out. I’ve lost almost all of my motivation to do wedding things.

136 Days for me and I guess I’m not to my freak out moment yet. I’ve been busy crafting the past few days, and slowly checking things off my to-do list.

I am with you … I have so much to do like 12 pomander balls, all of the table numbers out of hole punched colored paper, we finally went to the beach to find thousands of sea shells for the bottom of the vases but now we are unsure if they will look right .. and to top it all off i have my first dress fitting coming up and i know ive lost weight i needed to tone up.. My dress is a size 6 because the 4 was just too tight now i wish i would have just bought the 4 because my budget cant take a huge bill to alter it … sigh …
.. and not to mention my sister is prego and i am DIY’ing all of her gifts which are taking forever for me to complete .. Ranting i know i know ..

129 days, 14 hours, 34 minutes, and 50 seconds (and counting)……….omg.
I completely feel ya on being stressed out. I know I’ve gotten a lot done but I still need to get some things together and we still need to take care of a few big things. Stresses me out. I need a full day of relaxation with my future hubby soon. <3

143 days for me! I’m stressing! I booked the limo today, so I feel better about that… but I still need to decide on flowers. How can I decide when everyone sucks? They all act as though they’re doing ME a favor by giving them business! I have taken off about 1-2 weeks because of by brother in law’s wedding and the death of a friend’s family member. Now it is time to get back on track. Can’t wait til summer vacation and I can relax AND maybe WANT to do some more planning? I chose to plan my wedding in 11 months… and I wouldn’t change it… but I will suggest to my friends giving yourself about a year and a half at least!!

I have about 4 1/2 months left (not sure on exact dates)
But last weekend I started all my DIY projects from invites, to pom pom balls, to candle votives, and paper butterflies. My husband has even started the bark of the sign-in tree as well!
I have planned meetings with a couple of florists over the next 2 weeks and am also meeting with the rental place the middle of the month as well.
My dress is already with my grandmother to be altered and we have already discussed the pattern for my daughter’s dress that she is making as well.
I am still finalizing a few last details with my Mother-In-Law who is catering the event.
Next week we are having a craft day to make table frames, labels and other paper type things that will be at the wedding.
Things are going pretty well so far! I am really just trying to take it one day at a time, and also try to get some fun stuff to do in between so I am not only focusing on wedding stuff all the time.

I would also like to add that on top of work.. and planning things and taking care of things I have so many events I need to attend before our wedding. Originally we thought the only wedding we had to attend this year was ours! well that changed a few months ago – now we have 3 other weddings before ours… that’s 3 Saturdays I’m losing, then I have 2 bridal showers (2 of the 3 weddings) then my bridal shower! that’s 3 Sundays I’m losing, then a baby shower, brothers fiances graduation, banquet hall tasting, dance lessons every Wednesday night and the list just goes on and on… blahhhhhh
I gained weight since I ordered my dress back in October last year – I was between a size 2 and a 4 and they figured they would order the 4 just in case, I told them I was going to lose 10lbs so the 2 would fit, once I got my dress the size 4 they ordered it was a perfect fit! even though before it wouldnt have been if i didnt gain weight – I had every intention of getting into the best shape of my life but I just started working out a week ago. I can barely move! that doesnt make me happy either lol I can complain for hours.. but I’m glad I’m not the only one!!! I just want to go on the honeymoon 🙁 crappy part about that is that we’re leaving for our honeymoon a month and a half after the wedding…

@Fallicious1012: We had 14 months.. I still feel like I have 14 months and when I realize that I don’t I start freaking out. We bought a house in between and spent a good 3 months remodeling, during those 3 months I did not do anything wedding related, so I guess in a way I had 11 months lol. oh and I agree vendors shouldnt think they’re doing you a favor, my florist is driving me insane right now, I understand that I have changed my contract and flowers twice already but its my wedding, I’m paying her money doing her the favor so she should just suck it up. Not to mention, I recently found out my florist is preggo and is due 3 weeks before our wedding? should I be concerned? lol

@couawilou: I’m looking forward to the honeymoon as well, just want the wedding to be over and done with.. and I can only imagine that it’s just going to get worse. I think the worst will be the seating chart for the ceremony.. maybe it wouldnt be so difficult but we have.. well .. more than like 400+ guests coming 🙁

Yep, definitely feel you on the no motivation thing. Hopefully the 100 yards of burlap being delivered to our house today will help motivate me.
