A) Invites don’t get mailed until 6-8 weeks. If you have them done, all you’ll need to do is slap a stamp on them and take them to the post office.

B) I never did see all of my girls’ dresses until the day of. I picked a color at DB, and they went shopping on their own.

C) Most tux places won’t let you make a reservation until two months before.

D) I met with our priest two days before the wedding, and didn’t meet the DJ until the reception.

As a fellow long distance bride, I can tell you – it will all work out. It’s really not worth the stress (I stressed too)

I can’t even begin to imagine the stress that you must be under planning everything from so far away. I do’t have any advice for you but here’s a (((HUG))) anyway!

I think there’s only one option if you’re going to keep your sanity and not be a nervous wreck on your wedding day – RELAX and LET GO!

Due to your circumstances you’ll have to accept that you won’t have full control of every detail and that there may be items at your wedding that weren’t your first choice or to your taste. But does it really matter if you have chocolate or vanilla cake at the end of the day? You will be married and your guests will have a fantastic time whether the bridesmaids dresses are burgundy or bordeaux. Just prepare that there may be things that aren’t 100% perfect and you’ll feel much better.

And it sounds like you have an awesome mom who’s able to help you out so much with all the preparations!
