Well we are at the 5 month mark now! Is there anything you have been avoiding or saying ‘ohhh I’ll get to that next week…’
Mine is finding an officiant! I asked my uncle who is a pastor but he can’t make it all the way down here so now I’m stumped and I haven’t found anyone else yet. Oh, and the food! I know which caterer I want but for some reason it seems too overwhelming to make an appointment with them and get it all set up.
What have you been procrastinating on? 🙂

@Equine_Breeder: Same here – officiant and caterer… And I’m behind on planning everything else too = But I’m not too worried! Yet!

So far I haven’t been too stressed, just once when my mom started to get involved with centerpieces. She went out and bought $300 worth of stuff to make different mock ups and we just had too many ideas floating around!!!! It just seems like I’ve run out of fun things to plan. Its hard to get motivated when it just isn’t as interesting.

I waited on the honeymoon forever! I just booked it a few days ago! Wedding in July 🙂

We’ve waited to start planning the honeymoon or book a videographer, because we just don’t have the budget for them right now. 🙁 Future Father-In-Law keeps saying he’s going to help us pay for them and then never follows through, so I guess we’re just stuck unless we get more help. :/
otherwise, we’re ordering our centerpieces tonight. I put that off for a while because its a LOT of stuff we need to sit down and order. Ugh

My FH and I haven’t ordered a cake yet or have ordered invitations. We’re planning the wedding long-distance, so we’re trying to glob a bunch of appointments in one visit.

hair and makeup are my big issues at the moment – I have a very small bridal party and I didn’t want to have someone come out bc then its all crazy and congested…. plus there is a salon/spa only a mile away.
the issue is that is 2.5 hrs from my house and I still can’t find a good weekend to do the trial…. I just need to figure it out!

The rehearsal dinner. It has been a HUGE issue from the very beginning. My Future In-Laws are not in much of a position to help pay for much with regards to the wedding planning. My mom wants to have everyone from out of town at the Rehearsal Dinner. (Really, it will be pretty much a welcome party!) The guest list is really large and we’ve been fighting over it from the get-go. Just… DRAMA. So we’ve been avoiding it, until I realized just the other day that we are really running out of time. We need to figure it out so that we can order invites and get a decent venue. UGH.

Right now I just feel so overwhelmed. It comes on in phases of over activity and I get a lot planned, and then I slump back and feel like it’s just too much to do. I’m in the slump right now. Ugh.

@Equine_Breeder: I’m with you! I spend a lot of time researching stuff, book a vendor, and then swear off more planning for awhile.

We put off finding a photographer and picking out bridesmaids dresses until a couple weeks ago, and now that those are done I’m feeling okay.
We haven’t started planning our honeymoon at all, and I have designed our DIY invitations but haven’t actually got any paper to start making them. But this weekend I will… definitely… unless there’s something good on tv.

I still have so much to do! But the one thing I can honestly say I procrastinated on was a caterer.. I just hate it. I didn’t like anything about trying to find one…lol
We still haven’t booked one yet. Although, we know who we are going with and just have to put our deposit down.
