The five month mark for me was when I got my ring — short engagement!! So trust me, you will have plenty of time if you’ve already started thinking about things. If I could get a whole wedding organized in five months, then you will be fine 🙂

Don’t worry, you still have lots of time! If most of your big things and decor are figured out, you are fine in terms of timing. I was around the same stage of planning as you are at the 5-month mark. 

As for the invitations, don’t worry if they match. I had my invitations done at a very nice, well-respected paper store and, when I suggested matching my invitations to my wedding colours/decor, the invitation consultant actually suggested that I not do that. She warned me not to be too matchy-matchy as invitations are their own entity and can stand alone – they don’t need to “match” the rest of the wedding colours. So we (by choice) went with a style that matched our overall wedding feel but are using colours (cream and charcoal) that we are not our wedding colours. So I wouldn’t worry about it at all! You’re invitations will be great 🙂

I am now almost at 4 months, and I FREAKED OUT when I hit 5 months.  Not sure why.  Now that I am at 4 months, I am much calmer… crazy how that works!  I think freaking out made Fiance move on some of the stuff I was waiting on him to make decisions.  Five months will go by fast, but really, it’s a lot of time.  It’s like a whole semester!

If I were you, I’d finalize the guest list first.  It’s still too early for dress fittings (my dress won’t even come in until next month), but you could start looking at shoes and veils (bought mine on ebay for $15).  If you don’t have all your vendors yet, do that ASAP so they don’t get booked up.  Everything that you are doing yourself, I say just start on some things!  You’ll feel so much better when you can start crossing things off your list, even if they’re small things!
