Hey Date Twin!!! YES!!!!!!!! I completely feel your pain. I know it’s going to fly by and this time next year we’ll be saying “Holy crap–I’m married already?!” But for right now I feel like it’s SO far away. I’m at that point right now where I feel like it’s far enough away that I don’t want to do too much but at the same time I want to be as prepared as I can. Haven’t so much done anything this month yet though :/ Just picked out the design of our invites and the paper. Haven’t finished wording or even ordered the paper yet…oops…

I am with you all 100%!!! Sometimes it feels like the wedding is so far away! All I really want is to be with my Fiance right now! It makes it worse that he is states away from me right now! I can’t wait until we are not only living in the same state but in the same house! While I’ve been able to get a lot done, some days I’m just not in the mood to plan the wedding!! I just want to be married already!! I hate it that people keep saying to me, “You’ve already got so much done but you have such a long time to wait!” I have booked all the vendors but the florist and we are in the process of signing a contract with her. I keep putting off doing things. I started our DIY invites but haven’t worked on them in over a month. 

People keep telling me “It will be here before you know it!” All I can say to that is… I HOPE SO!

@TP to Bee: People say the same thing to me.

Also, when I tell people that I am getting married on NY Day they ask, “This New Years”? lol Duh, NY 2010 has passed.

i think i might be the only january 2011 bee who doesn’t feel like it’s super far away! my Fiance is a commissioned officer in the air force and will deploying overseas on june 1st and returning december 1st. by the time he gets back, we’ll have 6 weeks left before our big day! we’ve been trying to get lots checked off our list (with the help of our wonderful wedding planner!) before he deploys, but i have to say, knowing i have so much left to do will help make the 6 months with his absence go a little faster. when people ask us why the long engagement, we happily tell them we were thrilled to have a little extra time to plan while Fiance is deployed instead of rushing to get married before he leaves.

I’ve been REALLY slacking, my semester of class isn’t as hard as last semester but with my internship I have less “me” time and so wedding plans are taking a backseat for right now. I’ll have all summer so hopefully I’ll not be overwhelmed then. Anyone have big planning-plans for April? I’m still waiting to hear back from caterers…we have most of the big stuff taken care of: photographers, ceremony venue, reception venue, florist, cake, invitations…so now I guess it’s the little things that are going to add up FAST. Yikes. Maybe I shouldn’t be putting this off…I guess we’ll see, maybe everyone will be right and I will feel like this year flew right by 😉

Ok, this could totally be just me but doesn’t the fact that it’s not until 2011 mess with any of you? I feel like if the wedding were even like December 31st it would feel so much closer, but something about making that jump to 2011 that feels so much further away? Perhaps I’m just crazy…

@nurselindsey: What do your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses look like? I’m letting my girls pick theirs out so I don’t really know a thing about them until they pick them out  and I “ok” them 🙂

@beth1125: I know! Yes, the change in the year really does make it seem different! We’re 9 months away and when I say that it seems SO close, but when I say “Jan. 8, 2011” it feels like it’s FOREVER away haha!
