I’m so excited that we will all be married soon but I can’t help to be stressed and I don’t really now why. We decided to have a ceremony only and doing a private dinner with close family afterward and everyone who we invited totally understands and actual was happy that we made a huge grown up decision to not have a reception. So because of the change, I find myself wanting the ceremony to be perfect. I feel like I am forgetting a lot of things so that is why I want to know where you guys stand on things that you need or need to get done?
So back to my original question. How are things going with you guys? What do you still have left to do?

Getting married mid-August and so excited! I’m pretty on track with my planning schedule right now… the biggest things left to do are order/mail invitations (will order Easter weekend when FI comes to visit) and our cake tasting, which I’m scheduling for late May.
It’s funny, I really good about where I am with things because I feel like we’ve had so much time to plan (we got engaged last May), but my mom is the one freaking out over details now. She wasn’t too involved before because she said we were still too far out, but now she’s constantly asking questions and I have to tell her, “Relax! I figured that out 5 months ago!” 😂
FMIL also keeps dropping hints over her concern that we are DIY’ing all of the flowers, but I’m not worried. I’ve actually surprised myself with how relaxed I’ve been through this whole process. TBH I totally expected that I would be more of a bridezilla, but things have been very calm so far.

peoniesbaby : I feel your pain… I just told my cousin that this morning. I told her” I’m so over this wedding” LOL Thank God it is June 2nd
See I really don’t have anything to do and I think that is the problem. I can’t just be at peace with it. I’m finding more and more things to decorate and I just feel like things are missing. I hate this feeling.

Star35 : I am having a mini-panic attack just seeing how little time I have left. I am a procrastinator by nature but I don’t think that works for weddings.
Sigh…just take me to the honeymoon already!!
