We have some things done: wedding party,venue, bridesmaids dresses and accessories picked out, most of my wedding party gifts purcahsed, dj, photographer, possible caterer, hostesses accessories purchased, guest list pretty much done, my accessories purchased and invitations in the making. I just feel so behind. I think that if my dress was purchased (I have already picked it out) then I might feel better. Am I behind or am I ok?

Um, it sounds like you are way ahead of the game.
Some of the smaller details you mentioned I haven’t even completed yet and my wedding is in June.

And your wedding isn’t until October?! I think you’re fine. You’ve almost got as much as me done and mine’s in May! Granted, I do have my dress already, but thats just one detail of many 🙂

Whoa, I think you are doing great!!! Now you have me a little worried, I just finally booked our venue, but don’t have much else done, need to get on it 🙂

I totally get where you’re coming from. I have all the big details done, and am now spinning my wheels until I can get moving on the others (invitations, anyone)? And all that waiting makes me feel like I’m behind because I’m not doing anything, even though I’m theoretically “ahead”. Strange, huh?

Oh…I feel alot better. People keep telling me that I am ok. I felt ahead before, because I started planning as soon as I was engaged (even though I had a full year), but now I just feel like time is running out. Once Jan got here I started freaking out, lol. I have always been a planner and perfectionist..I guess that’s just getting the best of me now. Thanks, ladies!
No, it’s not strange Goldilocks..that’s SO how I feel. I don’t like sitting “idle” because I feel like I’m wasting valuable time

you have accomplished a lot so far but I know how you feel. Once you find the dress it will all come together. What’s the style of your dream dress? Maybe if you post a style and have some bees send you pics of dresses it will make your search easier 😉

Your post makes me sweat!!! You are doing great.
Getting the dress will make you feel wonderful 🙂
I… ahem, am not “officially” engaged yet. My FH and I have known for awhile now, have a ring picked out, went to pick out his wedding band this weekend, etc…
I’m just waiitingggg….
Since we wanted to get married this fall, I figured I’d better get planning even though it’s not “official” yet!
Our biggest step was to book the venue last week! It only holds 150 (or else the price goes up from $350 to $500), so I know the guest list will have to be under that, which helps.
It’s been hard to plan without involving everyone. I mean, our immediate families know we are planning this, but I feel a little uncomfortable talking details until I have the ring.
Because of this, I don’t have a set budget yet. I am estimating about $5,000, but who knows.. Maybe someone will susprise me and offer to help pay more? We’ll see.
For now, I have the invitations designed, our website designed, menu planned (we are self-catering), have bought the seeds for my flowers to plant in the spring, have started collecting Mason Jars for centerpieces, ordered the mold for our wedding cake, and I have price checked tons of things online and with vendors.
I have 7 Google Docs going to keep everything organized 🙂 Plus, a beautiful notebook full of things at home.
My Google Docs are: Budget, Menu, Guest List, Timeline (day of), Budget Actual Spent, To Dos that I can accomplish right now

You’re WAY ahead of me….I’m in August 🙂 I would get the dress ordered soon though, esp if you need alterations! Doing STDs?
