I know the feeling!
You have lots to do but once you start doing them, they’ll go fast. My list was long but in the last week or two I’ve cut it in half.

That’s not bad! I fight not to freak out over my own list – plenty of time… we’ve got plenty of time…

My list is to make a list. I’ve been postponing it since that task seems monumental, let along doing all the things on it. Ugh.
Isn’t it crazy how August kind of snuck up so quickly?

Sounds about right. Don’t worry, you’ll all get it done in time. I’d just look at specific things to do at a time, instead of staring at the whole list. That’s what I did. I gave myself a set day to get something done, when it was done, I moved on to the next task on another day. Before I knew it, I was almost completely done!

I try to take one list at a time, and break them down into different months and time frames. Since you only have this month, and several weeks in July i’d break them down in order of importance. Do the things that are quick now- like Suze Orman says to pay off your smallest debt first!

I would take care of anyhting that needs to be shipped ASAP. Maybe line your priorities up according to how much time things will take, and then tackle them from there!

I have a list on my iphone that follows me wherever I go…LOL…everytime I knock a few things off of it though, I feel like I’ve remembered the same amount of NEW things to do!! Just looking at your list jogged my memory about more stuff!
Less than 2.5 months for me….AHHHHHH!!!

My list is just about as long as yours! I am so glad I’m not the only one out there with a lot to get done in 65 days!

I’ve had a similar to do list and I feel like I’m finally getting things done. I’ve assigned 1-2 tasks per day (buy things or designing menus etc) and then 1-3 big goals for every week ie invitations, menus, Out of Town information. Then I try and design all the “stuff” for it that week and complete the goal over the weekend or on a free night.
I also look forward to the next week to be sure I’m buying all the items for next week’s project. ie next week we’re working on Out of Town bags so last week and this week I made my final purchases of muslin bags, custom stamp, ink, stickers, candy bags etc. Although the list may seem daunting there’s nothing like moving something from the To-Do to the DONE list! (Keep one of those and have it with strike through text!) With 8 weeks to go you’ll be sure to enjoy your final weeks rather than running around!!

Phew, I feel better! I’ve done a few of those things on your list, but I have a bunch other things I haven’t done. Like, um, figure out virtually all the decor. Some people plan weddings in 2 months. It can be done! I think I’ll use your list as a template.

@jedeve- Omg, did you just start planning your wedding?? You go girl! Haha. I’ve only been planning since the end of February….trying to juggle school full-time & working full time it’s been a whirlwind….still have SO MUCH to do.
