This is my first post just as the title describes. I have LOVED stalking the boards for the last few months looking at all the wedding goodies and all of your wedding related ups and downs. Then the other day as I was looking at ring porn it hit me. OH. MY. GOD. I have 7 months until my wedding. GAAHHH!!!! I’ve just been do dahing along because I got engagd in Jan 2012 and set the wedding date for September 2013, so I had all the time in the world, until I suddenly didn’t.
At the same time I realized that the wedding is close at hand and i really better buckle down and start planning I also realized I would kind of like a place to document where everyone one else can sympathize when I say I freaked out over napkins or the like, because you know how I feel. We are all in the midst of this crazy wonderful thing called a wedding!
I’ll post VERY soon about what I have planned so far, pictures of the ring and ect. Oh as soon as I try on one more dress I’ll definetly be posting 3 dress pictures… I’m SOOO stuck, I can’t decide between them and as you noticed I’m down to 7 months…oh and did I mention that it’s a destination wedding…yeah…..
So thank you all in advance for commenting and helping and I’ll try to do the same.

Yes! I totally feel you. I got engaged November 2011, so I didn’t do any wedding planning until last month, and now I’m freaking out! Do you already have your venue? That’s probably the most important thing, and then your dress. Then you might want to start thinking about sending your Save the Dates, especially since it’s a destination wedding! Can’t wait to see your dress options.

@sunsetchristy: So I guess I’ve done a little planning, We took engagement photos I think in April 2012 and I got Save-The-Date Cards from nostalgia imprints on etsy and sent them out as soon as we got them because I wanted everyone to have time to save money if they wanted to fly out. I’ve randomly looked at dresses cause I’ve had the time but I can’t decide for the life of me!! And lucky me, I grew up on a ranch in Texas which is where we are having the wedding (mostly because my grandma can’t fly here and its pretty) so I don’t have to look for the venue. Also lucky for me the rustic wedding thing is ‘in’ right now! But I also have to plan a reception in CA the week after for everyone that couldn’t make it to TX!!!What about you? Nailed down any details yet? Oh here’s a pic of our std on my friends fridge she posted on fb, lol!

@windmill: Aw, I love that photo! So glad you have your venue and Save-The-Date Cards out, I was going to start getting worried for you =) Those were the two things I did right away, as well, and I asked my ladies to be bridesmaids. Looks like we’re both planning long-distance weddings (from CA!) in our hometowns, which has its own challenges. Since January 1, I:
- Bought a dress
- Found a seamstress for alterations, have had 2 appointments
- Asked the seamstress to make the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, bought fabric for all the dresses
- Bought all the groomsmen shirts (they’re different colors of the rainbow)
- Bought necklace, earrings, tiara, parasol
- Found and booked a photographer
- Found and booked a harpist
- Picked out all of my flowers
- Ordered all of the vases and fillers for centerpieces
- Got fiance’s ring size (but he needs to pick a ring!)
- Started designing my DIY invites (my education was in graphic design)
- Picked out the menu from the caterer
- Have posted about 180 times on WeddingBee!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m actually kind of glad I started so late. All of this planning has started to cause a bit of anxiety, and I don’t want to let that feeling last any longer than it has to!

@sunsetchristy: I haven’t done nearly that much! I’ll have the dress picked in the next 2 wks, I’ll post on the boards to vote too, I’m stuck between 3 dresses and get to try on the 3rd next wk. I’ve figured out some music play lists, my brother and his friend are catering so not too much thought there, flowers, I have a few lists of things I need to star ordering too. Oh and I posted my rings if u wanna see! I think u just might be more organized than me!!!
