I was getting a little bit nervous a few days ago. With 5 months to go, we haven’t even finished the mockup of my dress, and invitations aren’t even printed yet… among everything else not being done. But now that I’m going to visit the venue site in a couple days (it’s across the country), and will be spending a week in the area buying and DIYing centerpieces, altar, everything else, + my invitation paper is coming in soon, + we’ve now figured out the bodice to my dress and it’s coming along very quickly… I’m feeling pretty calm.

Don’t fret so much. Take it easy and focus on the big important stuff. Start making a weekly to-do list, maybe?

I think making yourself a task list of what you’ll do every week is a good strategy.  Breaking things down into manageable bits, sometimes makes things look less overwhelming.  Or perhaps, you have legitimately taken on too much.  I know I did.  As my wedding got closer, I made what I lovingly referred to as my “Fuck-it list” (excuse the language, but it’s just not as good when it doesn’t rhyme with “bucket list”, where I added things that I’d wanted to do originally, but either ran out of time or enthusiasm.  This should be fun!
