The biggest thing is to be able to say NO! You have taken on a lot of things to help out your friends, but now you need help…

You have a year, pace yourself now so you don’t get burned out… ask your BMs for help… say NO to the next person that asks you for something.

Good luck with everything!!

Don’t stress yourself. Do what you can, when you can. USE A PLANNER!!! Like PP mentioned say “no” when you have to.

Relax… take a breath.  It’ll be fine.  I know it might seem like there isn’t enough time in the day/week to get it all done, but just prioritze and try to do 1 wedding related thing a week. That way it’s not so overwhelming.

As for engagement parties, no we didn’t have one.  It’s not tradtional in fi’s family nor mine really.  However, it is tradition in fi’s culture for him to throw me an engagement serenade. It happens closer to the wedding, like a week or so before and I am so looking forward to that.  It’s not the tradtional e-party but it is sort of like that.  Plus it comes at a time when most of the major wedding stuff have been taken care of already.

 I work pt, so I have 2 weekdays off (however I just started working like 2months ago so before that I was a fulltime sahm). I use my days off to run errands and weekends to do a lot of wedding related stuff.  We have no weddings to attend this year and family events come up and we make time to go. I just went to fi’s cousin’s b-day party Friday.  Fi and work at the same job so sometimes after work we’ll grab a bite and occasioannly we’ll have a date night sans kids. I am just over 3 months out though but I do still have free time to get other things done.  I took some time off wedding planning for a breather and am now back in full swing. I meet most of my vendors on Saturdays, since fi the weekend is the only time fi can come along for those meetings and my big vendors areopen on Saturdays. So are the printers.
