4 months? You have a ton of time to tie up loose ends. Get on it. I am about 10 days away from my party and I have quite a bit to do.

I hear you. Sometimes I feel like I’ve been so productive..but then later I feel like everything will come off as half-done.

Now that I am just under 2 months out, I feel a little shell shocked as to whether everything will get done (even though I know that if I managed my time I could probably sort it).

@Mrs.tobe:

we are awful at time managing over the weekends, because even though we know we have wedding things that we need to do either something else comes up (house, work, life wise) or we just want to relax .. and end up not being quite as productive as we should have maybe been. 

I think for me & my partner, we just have to buckle down and try and juggle our priorities a bit more to make thngs work. Easier said than done though.

i micro managed my to do list. instead of putting “get groosman gifts” i put make present x, buy present y wrap present z and so on. i broke down each project into the little projects it would take to do it. i put them all on a cork board in my hall so i walk by it every day and when i finish a project i take down the note card its written on and throw it away. at first the board looked really over welming but after the first few projects it wasnt so scary. i have a few weeks less than you and im almost out of cards but instead of tacklling a huge project i did little projects when i could and eventually the final product is done!

 

just take things one step at a time and dont stress. as long as you, Fiance and a minister are at the wedding thats all that matters, everything else is trivial!

Did your break from the bee and all wedding related things help a little?

My first advice would be to take a break from everything to come back refreshed, but youve already tried that.

If I were you I’d set a monthly deadline in list form.

June

  • get shoes
  • finalize centerpiece design

July

  • make sure Fiance buys tie
  • finalize such and such…

Etc…

If it’s all written out like this it might force you to just get stuff done, cause youll want to check stuff off the list.

Also it will spread all activities out, since you said you don’t want the last 2 months to be hectic.

I know that is kind of obvious advice, but when you just aren’t “feelin” it but you have to get things done, forcing yourself to is the next option.

Maybe go over all your favorite elements of your wedding to kind of get excited about all the details again too…visualize how it all will play out so beautifully..

@cr6zy: That’s good advice (being really specific on to-do list)

@Mrs.tobe: personal cheerleader, you say?

You can do it, if you want
Cut out those logs, pick out that font
Make a corkboard for all your to do’s
Don’t forget your something blue
I promise your dress will be in soon,
And before you know it, you’ll say “I Do”

Tongue out
