I’m getting married a month after graduation next year, so our weddings won’t be too far apart! I’m nervous, because I don’t have a light courseload senior year whatsoever! But I’m spending the rest of the summer getting the big things planned, and for the rest I have a great mom ๐Ÿ™‚

How about college professor bees? Hey we get married sometimes too! In fact two of my former bridesmaids are former studens with one being a former lab assistant. Come to think of it, ALL my former lab assistants will be at the wedding Friday night and at the pig roast Saturday! I have been wedding planning, helping my Fiance renovate his house, moving his stuff into mine, and teaching; and I am ready to tear my hair out. Way too much overload but the home stretch is coming up – four more weeks til the big day!

 One of my former lab assistants is getting married a week after my wedding and she is attending nursing school (she wants to be nurse-midwife) and she is handling everything wonderfully. She is also very organized and has family to help her. Plus she is having a very informal wedding.

Heh, I wonder if anyone can top this — our finals ended on a Tuesday, we got married on Friday, and graduated on Saturday. ๐Ÿ™‚ We handed in our senior projects a week before finals ended. Holy cow I was stressed out. But I did not have a very DIY-heavy wedding, and we planned out our final semester so that besides our senior courses/projects, everything else was very light. Also, our finals schedules worked out to where we were both done before the official end, giving us both a good few days off of everything but wedding planning, in which time we bought and did all the last minute stuff.

Best of luck! I’m not in school now, but I will be going back for grad school in a month. I have most of the big vendors booked, so hopefully it’ll be smooth sailing from here on. I also know I need to be less picky about certain things, and things can’t be perfect. We just gotta do well in organizing our time. Congrats!

I think the main thing is to be super -organized and decisive; I am not a student but in the medical field and I worked as decisively as possible and doing as much as I can as far advanced as possible

Are you both in school?
Mr.Flamingo was in school during the whole planning and wedding, so I took care of everything.
Being super organized and knowing what you want will help out a whole lot.

I would also ask for lots of helps from family and friends. Your BMs and Maid/Matron of Honor.
Its do-able… if thats what your asking ๐Ÿ™‚

Good luck!

I am getting married the first of next month and I was taking classes all this year. I was fortunate enough to finish classes the end of April…giving myself more than three months to finalize everything (though working during the planning process is also not easy). I was a full-time student, working full-time, and trying to plan a wedding.

The best advice that I can give you is think about it, talk about it with your Fiance, and then just do it! Don’t second guess yourself and just go with your gut. With everything that you have going on in your life you will have to be extremely decisive and then stick with your decision. Do as much as you can when you are on break from school, it’s very difficult to do any planning when you have homework to worry about. Good luck! Everything will turn out great. And stick with the hive, these amazing women will help you out in any situation. I wish I had found this sooner…

I just finished undergrad, and am starting vet school this fall. Our wedding next June will be two weeks after finals. 

I’m trying to get done as much as possible this summer, while I have time and energy!

I did a lot of planning while still in undergrad, I squeezed it in whenever I could, which isnot easy between a full course load, TA work and work-work. Don’t wait to have time, use every moment you can for HW, planning, etc.

cinemaparadiso: I’m doing what you’re doing. Big things first, little things like DIY when I can. You still have a lot of time!
