@shainajane, I agree with you! Fiance keeps asking me why I’m spending so much time on the napkin rings, but he doesn’t understand its just one of the details to make it special.
We are planning our wedding in 3 months. We have been engaged for 1.5 years and finally decided we were going to get married at the time that was best for us and not wait any longer trying to please everyone in our families. Its a crazy ride, but I know it will be worth it!

My engagement is exactly six months. But I knew it was coming, so I researched venues beforehand and picked out the date. I also am hiring a wedding planner, because I’m not a detail-oriented person and don’t care so much about what color my napkins are.
I’m also doing a destination wedding at a beach (hence my low-key personality, lol).
My advice is this: focus on the big picture. Dress is important, venue is important, food is important, flowers are pretty important.
wedding favors, room decor, font in the program, invitations, seating chart..etc. NOT SO IMPORTANT. No one will remember that stuff.

i’m planning my wedding in three months! granted, it’s tiny (60 people max), but we’ve been dating for almost 4 years, three of which were con-inhabited, so we figured, why wait? we’re doing just a dinner reception at our favorite restaurant, so everything is pretty much set.
my advice to you? go make yourself a cocktail and chill out.
because in the end, whatever you do, you’re going to be married. and it’s going to be frickin’ fantastic.

Yes, very stressed! Engaged January 9th and wedding is May 15th! And no, it’s not a shot gun wedding! Wanted to get married before summer (because we built a house and moved to a lake this past fall) because we don’t want to miss the good lake weather and couldn’t get married in the fall without worrying about missing a ND football game, so May it is! I wasn’t stressed, but now it’s hitting me! 🙂

We’ll have been engaged 3 1/2 months by the time we get married (this May). I have only nailed down the officiant, my dress, and the ceremony location. The reception will be two weeks later (after the honeymoon) and I have nothing concrete planned for it, just a few prospects. I’m not really too into all the details, DIY, etc., so I’m not stressing about it. It’ll all fall together somehow. 🙂 (My fiance has this attitude, which is great because it’s contagious.
Just relax, don’t get caught up in the small stuff, and figure out which tasks you are okay handing over the reigns on.
