We’re 4 months give or take a week out from the wedding.
Every day someone (family, bridal party etc) is asking me when should we be there, what do you need from me etc etc and it’s driving me nuts and stressing me out.
We don’t have the rehearsal scheduled yet, but we think we know. I don’t know the exact schedule for the night yet, FH and I keep going back and forth on speeches (first none, now the best man wants to give one but the Maid/Matron of Honor doesn’t…) and it’s all very overwhelming.
I’m trying to get it all figured out but there’s too much and in order to figure out item A I also need to figure out B, C & D and WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
thanks for letting me get that out.
I’ll go back to work now.

@MsGinkgo: I had the same problem! Five months out my sister wanted a detailed day of timeline. I was like uhm I have no clue! Now that we are two months out and I know the day of timeline and more details no one will respond to my emails! Go figure. Just relax and tell people “we haven’t figured that out quite yet” Seriously, we are two months out and I am JUST starting to put together some of those details. It is kind of crazy how many details have to be worked out just to plan one thing!! I sincerely hope we start getting more RSVPs soon so I can work on more stuff or I am gonna go batty!

@MsGinkgo: I’m sorry you are feeling overwhelmed… don’t worry though you still have lots of time to get the finer details sorted! I didn’t send a timeline to my family/bridal party/photographer until about 3-4 weeks before the wedding, and honestly that was how long it took to make sure I had all the info to send them. You are much better off sending that information all at once, as opposed to telling them bits at a time.
I also found the questions from people to be very overwhelming – just remember it’s because they are so excited about your wedding!

@excitedtobeMRSF: @Little_Nut88: I think part of the problem for us is that it’s Destination Wedding for pretty much everyone. I’ve been saying the rehearsal on Thursday night becuase it will be Thursday or Friday, If for some reason it had to be Wednesday and people weren’t here yet I can deal with it – it’s most important that FH and I know what’s going on right!

@MsGinkgo: Oohh gotcha. Yeah, worst case if you know what’s going on everything will be fine! We didn’t even bother with a rehersal, and we planned our group first dance as we were being announced for dinner, lol.
