@Bears-bub:  I understand COMPLETELY! I am having 50 people at my wedding and I think I am paying just about the same price as if I were to have 150.. just the stupid things like the hall rental, DJ, MC, coordinator– they are all based on set rates rather than people.

That being said, I also understand the stress you are under and I think that it will get better! I am also the first of my friends and famly to get married in the last little while and I am currently in the process of beading my own veil that is cathedral length (see: insanity) and I feel like doing so is taking time from the other 200 things I need to do.

As for what to do… I suggest checking out The Knot. It is amazing for lists of what needs to be done and when. Also, I find that a lot of silly things come up as you go along, like will there be music walkng down the aisle, what will play and who will play it? What about gift table? Who will put it away so nothing “disappears”? Feel free to PM me if you want some other “oh crap” moments I’ve come across planning for such a small number (like who in h*lls name says that you can only rent knives in sets of 100?!)

Good luck! Take a deep breath and know you aren’t the only one 🙂

@Bears-bub:  Same! For some reason I thought that the money my parents gave us would cover everything and more. I’ve spent all but $1500 and out of pocket’ed rings, centrepieces and veil so far. Still have to buy shoes, FI’s outfit, flowers, and all paper products, officient, licences and favours.

FML. That sucks writing it down!

I did, however, DIY a TON. I DIY’ed my veil, the centrepieces ($10 each), my sister is designing and printing my paper products, but I have to assemble them, including the pocketfold. SO MUCH TO DO!
