As I’m sure many of you other brides can understand… I have been feeling very… discombobulated. I am constantly thinking about the wedding and have a million ideas!
I am a very organized person and I have written them all down/made lists/utilized my organization skills. But having all these things going on in my head at once is making me feel very… overwhelmed.
I know I have a lot to do but I don’t know where to get started! I am constantly on WeddingBee getting new ideas but I feel like I haven’t put anything into action! I’ve been sitting around for the past 2 months not actually DOING anything!! HELP!!! I’m feeling very discombobulated and overwhelmed!

LOL…i love that word!
But I know EXACTLY how you feel.
Right now my mother and I are trying to find a venue first. That will help us take the next step. No use in getting my centerpieces ready or anything else if the venue wont even allow us to use them.
Just take one step at a time. I’d work on what you think is most important to you first.

@WendyS328 – I love that word too! Thanks for the words of encouragement… sometimes I feel like I need it.
I know I’m ridiculous for feeling this way when I know I have A LOT done for how long I’ve been engaged and how long I have until the wedding (Jan 8, 2011) So far I have the following done:
– Wedding dress chosen
– Reception/caterer and ceremony site booked (or mostly booked)
– Wedding party chosen
– Officiant chosen
– Color scheme chosen
– Paper for DIY stuff bought (invites, menu cards, escort cards, programs, favors, etc.)
– Cake topper bought
– Shoes bought
– Photographer chosen
I know, I know… I’m crazy. But shouldn’t I be doing something right now!?!? Not just sitting around!?!

Oh my. I felt the same way at first! Like Wendy said, breathe! Your wedding is 3 months after mine and I feel like a slacker now because you have more done than me! lol

You have already done so much! youve done more than me and Im getting married in 7 months!!! I think sometimes its hard to just do nothing. Thats where I am right now. I keep thinking…dont I have something to do right now? And the truth is, that no, I really dont. Just enjoy the downtime because before you know it it will be so close to your wedding and you will have a million things to do! You will be thankful for the free time that you had!
