It really doesn’t feel like it. It feels like we have all the time in the world because, up until now, we have! So now with 56 days until the wedding and over 96 things left on our to-do list… I somehow just can’t get the energy or excitement to do any of it! Much less know where to begin.
Anybody else feel like that? You KNOW crunch time is coming and you need to get stufd done but you just don’t FEEL like it? How did you deal with it?

Girl, I feel your pain!! I am not the most organized or motivated bride myself. I go in phases, where I look at wedding stuff non-stop for 2-3 days and I get so stressed out that I can’t look at it for another week!!
We have similar dates, so we are kinda in the same boat! I think the trick is to just take it one thing at a time… I won’t even count how many things I have left to do, so at least you have a sense? I know I have a ton. Maybe look at your list and prioritize them, which need to be done sooner than later. And approach it like that? AND ask for help!
Have you sent out your invitations yet? Thats my big task right now, I want to get them out by next Monday. Maybe we can motivate each other?? 🙂
What’s your biggest task right now, or the thing that is pressing on your mind the most at this moment?
Or if that is too stressful, work on a fun project! Like accessories! I just bought my bridal earrings yesterday 🙂 That was kind of motivating? 🙂

ugh I feel ya – I’m dragging. I just finished the semester, so you would think I’d have MORE motivation, but I so do not. We’re 2 months from today, and I feel like I’m drowning. I’d def ask for help but it’s things I don’t trust anyone else to do as silly as that sounds.
Printing labels for everything – candy jars, goodie bags, photo share, etc..I’m so afraid that if someone else does it and misprints I’ll be a wreck. At least if it’s my mistake, it’s my own fault, you know?? I’m such a micromanager! Ech!

I figure, if I hang out on here some more (like I haven’t been able to do) and search through some pictures I might get bitten by the wedding bug again and actually become atleast somewhat motivated!

@Mrs Hedgehog: that’s what i’ve been trying to avoid! if I see any more photos of decor, I’m afraid I’ll throw my current wedding out the window!

I’m starting to get excited because now more than before, decisions are made and final, and I can see it coming together as the stuff comes in. The hardest part now is parting with the cash. I’ve planned the little odds and ends like candles and paper lanterns and whatnot, but now, I actually have to buy it. It was easier to want it before I was paying for it haha.
Invites are going out tomorrow, one week behind schedule, but grad school really sucks up your time! Have to finalize flowers this week. Starting alterations. Going to set up a hair and makeup trial for next week or so. Ordering lanterns and last minute decor stuff.
Basically, we finally know what we need and just have to buy it. And find a place to put it for the next 48 days!
I think maybe if you force yourself to do some of it and put it together so you can start to see the finished product, maybe that will help? Hope it comes to you!

Yup. The two month slump tends to hit most people. I was a complete and utter emotional wreck two months before my wedding…and then the month before I was totally invigorated and raring to go again!
Basically, anything that needs to get done right now, do it. Get help if you have to, but just suck it up and do it. But anything you can afford to put off for a few weeks, leave it be for now and don’t sweat it. Allow yourself entire days where you don’t look at or deal with anything wedding-related. Sometimes all you need is a breather.
Hang in there, your wedding mojo will come back to you eventually!

Ack i am you.
I have a to-do list a mile long.
I’m hoping this upcoming weekend will speed things along, but to be honest – i doubt it will….
@Demidoll002: Hey date twin 😉

I feel like making a pile of wedding stuff and setting it on fire when I looke at my to-do list.
But that wouldn’t be very productive, would it?
