How DIY savy are you? I think ALOT of DIY projects will make you more excited and keep you busy…

Start early what you can… I have done TONS of DIY projects and as planning organized as I’ve been I’m now BEHIND and I have just days to get things done…. and I even had that same feeling you’re having now, right about the same time in planning.

Take your projects on slowly but keep doing them… and enjoy your down time b/c I promise.. come your 2 mth mark you’re gonna get that “I’m behind” feeling and it’s better to be done way ahead then be in you “week of” still trying to finish things up.

have you started on accessories? I didnt think it would be so hard to find a AMAZING pair of hot pink shoes… And im on a bugdet so i know jewlery will be harder for me to find…

When i dont know what to do i always check out ETSY and i come up with a BILLION of ideas!

Oh you could also start taking care of the “details” like:

Music for ceremony

Processional Bridal Party

Processional Bride

Recessional

Any Special songs

Music for Reception

Intro

First dance

Must Play

Do Not Play

Photograph List

Must Have

Like to Have

Don’t want (this could save you time on the big day)

 

Since you have your venue locked down & I’m assuming time since your invites are ready for printing you could start

Day of Timeline

Rehearsal Timeline

And I’m sure if you get with a site that has checklists and such you could find MUCH more….

Oh.. it’s never to early to shop jewelry and Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts… put together day of emergency kit(s) or even Menu selections.

Hope that helps some =)
