I don’t have any advice, but I am kinda where you expect to be. I have done most of the things I need to do and I feel like we are just waiting for the wedding. It is nice to just enjoy being engaged though and not be in crazy wedding planning mode all the time.

I don’t think being ahead of the game is the worst thing in the world.  Things will pick up and be busy again a couple months before, no matter what you do.

Write a list of items that can be purchased by month. (Example- May: shoes and flower girl dress. June: book hair appt and buy veil, ect) then stick to it.

I had started to feel overwhelmed with wedding planning and was getting way ahead of myself in terms of what I needed to accomplish when. I shared my process on another thread where a bee hit the planning wall, and I think it can work for you to slow down [which was the original reason why I took this approach]. Hope this helps 🙂

I used the monthly calendar in the front part of my day planner as my ‘wedding countdown.’ Working backward from my date, I wrote in the checklist items on the Monday of the week a task needed to be accomplished. I underlined the header [invites, cake, dress, etc] and then wrote notes across the week as needed. It’s a great reference for me now because it’s tailored to my actual wedding timeline and it’s helped me feel more in control of the checklist process. I know right where I should be in terms of getting things done, not too fast and not too slow…just right!
