I totally get what you’re saying…I hit a wall with all the checklists a few months ago.

I changed my approach and 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.

Sometimes you need to just take a week or so off of wedding planning to refresh yourself and get back into it.  You have plenty of time.  I planned everything about mine from start to finish (including STD’s) in just 6 months.  

Other then that, sometimes it’s just a matter of picking something to finish and getting it done.  Maybe start emailing people or calling them (or bugging your Fiance, Future Mother-In-Law, mom, etc) to get their addresses so you have them when the time comes to send out the STD’s.

@agirlwithdreams7:

I’ll be interested to know if it helps you. Honestly, the checklists overwhelmed me and I ended up confused and without focus. And my life (work, friends, FI) was suffering for it! After I broke it down month by month, I can see not everything needs to be done now now NOW. If I start to freak out or lose momentum, I know right where to look to get back on track 🙂
