You are definitely not alone…its like all of my mojo is GONE…I’m quite sure that everything will turn around at the beginning of the new year as TIME will NOT be on my side

I have my dress, and venue which also provides the catering, and photographer. I am making the bridesmaid dresses and the fabric is on order. I have a cake topper, birdcages and round mirrors for centrepieces. The honeymoon is also booked and paid for.  I am looking at cakes and cant make my mind up wether to make one myself or not.  its only a small 25 people wedding so i wouldnt need a huuuuuuge cake.

I have quite done a lot,  but my DIY  has come to a bit of a standstill ,  i had such great plans to do this that and the other,  and bought all the stuff i needed, now i got to make them up, like the centrepieces,  i need 6  and i made 3 and left the other 3 to do…..still need to do them. bridesmaids bouquets,  all half done. 

none of this will take me very long to do,  but its getting around to it, and getting all the stuff out….bleh. 

but if i make a conscious effort,  i could do everything in just a few hours,  and thats my goal this week!  FI  is on nightshift this week so when he leaves the house,  i’m getting down to finishing what i started!  watch this space.  LOL

I had the same problem.. I am getting married 3/24/12 I got engaged 12/3/10. The first month or two I was really on a roll booked the venue the photog, dj videographer..had so much done and everyone kept saying you have soo much time you have plenty of time.. so i decided i could take a break from planning and relax… then it started getting close and closer and i just couldnt get back into full gear..now suddenly its 4.5 months away and I finally got my wedding mojo back ..which is good because now Im really behind lol

@jules0580:

That exactly it!   I started so early making plans and DIY-ing,  that  I thought,  well theres plenty of time, so relaxed a bit…..well a LOT!  

and yes i suppose there still IS  plenty of time,  but i hate things half finished,  so if i can finish what i started and box them up,  i can draw a line under that job…….its just having the energy to get started isnt it?  LOL

I’m going to set myself a goal,  and tomorrow night i will finish the birdcages  (just adding flowers the inside)  and the next night i will finish the bridesmaids bouquets…..all i have to do is add ivy around the outside of them and they are done!  (i cant 100%  finish them because i am wrapping the handles with leftover scraps of fabric from their dresses,  and so i need to wait until i finish the dresses before i can do that.  (and i havent begun making them yet,  but i HAVE ordered the fabric)  ….

Sooooooooo…..later on this evening i will be finishing my bridesmaids bouquets.  the thing is,  if they are finished i can close the boxes and pack them away neater than if they are only half done,  because its not worth closing the box properly if i know i have to get it out again soon.  so thats my job for tonight.   

Tomorrow i am cutting out the linings for the girls bridesmaid dresses…..well one of them at least.  if it goes well i will do all 4.

You still have some time.. Im getting married 3/24/12 and my first step in a bridal store was this past saturday..and I got my dress, well ordered it.  I finally got the stuff for my invitations yesterday that took me forever to decide.. Table numbers.. havent even attempted nor have I attempted rehearsal dinner invitations/plans or bouquets.. I work full time and Im in school at night two nights a week so its hard to find the time but Im back in gear now so hopefully i will get that all done quick! Speaking of table numbers does anyone know where to find pedastool frames..other than Ikea..I want silver ones..I saw some at home goods but Im not paying $20 a piece for table number frames

I have these in white, they are really cheap in IKEA,  and you could spray them Silver.  i saw a bee on here who had sprayed hers pink and they looked great.
