Am I a FAIL Bride because i don’t keep much of an idea of what still needs doing or what needs doing by a set date?

I am finishing up my invitations and planning to send them. Trying to force my Fiance to finally pick a suit or I will (and he won’t like it cause we have different tastes in such things!) Need to do the finishing touches on my sailboat table numbers (SO excited about them! Even more then the invites!) and, ummm…other stuff. You know, stuff…. ;p Oh- I need to put together the cake/pie stands/plates I am making from Goodwill finds (fiestaware on silver candle sticks  to bring pops of color to the pie buffet!). Sometime soon I need to start on the DIY gifts for the BMs and GMs. And I need to hire a DOC because I am in a SERIOUS panic over day-of craziness. Oh, and I need to move ALL my wedding piles from our office/2nd bedroom somewhere else since my brother is moving in temporarily (yay free wedding labor! I plan to make him work for his free room and board! ;p ).

Lol. The Knot’s checklist gives me stress ulcers! I have sOOOoooo many Red clocks! Makes me feel craz behind even though I normally feel like I’m doing ok (except for the Fi’s suit dilemma!). Glad that checklist is helping someone! 😀

I made lists per month so that I don’t stress as much. 

For June I’m making a card box (I need ideas!), wedding this way signs, buying our marriage licence (eeee!!) and doing a site check with my caterer. 

It might be a busy one for me!

We are finishing up our invites, picking out the guys tuxes, first dress fitting, finishing up our registry… probably a lot of other things too, but that’s what comes to mind right now 🙂

@ rabbit

I agree on the stress inducing nature of the Knot checklist and those lovely red clocks. Even moreso the fact that it counts completed items in the count of overdue ones!

Based on what you ladies have outstanding, and the fact that my wedding is just a couple weeks later, I feel good about where I am at. I have the same items outstanding and a few others that you have all probably completed. :o)

Ahhh! Everytime I feel like I’ve crossed 100 things off the list it seems there’s a million more to do! We tried finalizing the guest list last night so that we can finally order invites and have the envelopes printed but Future Mother-In-Law keeps adding people!!! I love her but – c’moooooon!!!

The list definitely seems to be growing instead of shrinking.
