I have a Wedding Countdown on my computer but have been offline the last few days so I totally missed the 6-month mark. We are now down to 5 months and 27 days….aaaaahhh!

I’m May 7th too and I feel like I have soo much left to do.. maybe its because I feel like I dont know what I need to do or just keep procrastinating!!


I’m hoping to do the guestlist within the next week or so..

We have booked the church, reception venue, photo, video, transportation, bought my dress, and bridesmaids dresses are ordered… and I think that’s about it!!  AHHH soo much to do!

I’m also a May 7 bride… and my TO DO LIST is CRAZY long. And, I’m a planner, so I’m going nuts. BUT, there’s not much I CAN do right now that’s on my list.

Here is what I can work on between now and the end of January:

– put together and address invitations
– finish Tears of Joy packets
– create and print Donation Favor Cards
– DIY Memorial Candles
– Registry
– Rings
– Tuxes (I have to do registry, rings and tuxes while my Fiance is home during the holidays!)
– DIY veil

That looks like a long list, but I have 3 more pages of things to do!

When is everyone sending their invitations? I have a RSVP date of April 1 for my May 7 wedding. I was thinking late-February?
