You can totally do it, just work on checking off one thing at a time! 9 months is plenty, just work on a project while watching TV whenever you’re at home hanging out.

Yes, I feel overwhelmed sometimes….but I still have plenty of time and I figure if I do a little every day, it will eventually get done!  Unless I keep finding cute DIY ideas from other brides as I read posts….dernit!  lol

I feel so overwhelmed and I still have just under 10 months…But like vlvesq says as you finish one you think of 10 more. I keep changing my mind on what I think will work at my rennisance/glam wedding. It gets hard but I do one project at a time and check it off even one step at a time…watching my favorite shows..when my dear sons are doing homework…and mostly when I am at home and no one else here to inturrupt my artistic flow!

My boys are 9 and 12 but they leave little time with sports and other activities for me to do much…I started my list of to do things tonight that way when i get together with my Maid/Matron of Honor, who thankfully is awesome and really wants to help…We can maybe split up the list a little bit…She even offered to have the RSVP’s sent to her house so I don’t have to have that stress!!!I am so happy I chose her as my MOH!!!
