Screw them! ha.  Your doing fine.  I’m surprised your not snappy already.  It is beyond irtating.  We each are working at the pace we choose.  Mine is after yours and I have a lot done.  Im not trying to drop a fortune right before.  Id rather spend early while I can.


Keep on trucking!

I completely agree with you..  I am like this too, I have been to soo many weddings that looked like they were just thrown together at the last minute, I want mine to be something special! So don’t listen to them!

lol, I am in the same boat as you are. I have my venue, photographer, dj, & officiant booked. I have my BM’s dresses, I have all of their jewellery made, save the dates done, invitations finished except for the final insert with the times, and almost all of the decor done. Once I started DIYing I just couldn’t stop. I want to have everything done so that I get to enjoy the time leading up to the wedding and not stressing out about the little things.     So I say GO FOR IT! and have fun 🙂

People have said this to me too! Even when I went looking for a dress 11 months out, the consultants at the stores were like “Oh you have PLENTY of time!” which yeah, I did, but they seemed to not want to take me seriously when I was looking just becuase my wedding was 11 months out. I ended up getting my dress 7 1/2 months out, and it was almost too late! Don’t let them discourage you! The more you get done now, the less stressed you will be later!

Don’t listen to them! It’s always best to get things out of the way. The sooner the better in the case of a wedding or any other big party.

I had an ex-friend who liked to say the exact same things, but after she got engaged she started planning things at a faster rate than I was.

People did the same thing to me. I started planning my wedding over a year before our date. I think it’s awesome that you’re on the ball and taking care of business! Have fun and enjoy it girl!

There is a very easy solution to this.  Just don’t talk to them about it.  You need to do things on the schedule that works for you, and it really doesn’t matter if they agree or they get it.  It’s not their place to have an opinion.  But since you don’t like the way they are reacting… just don’t bring it up, and then you don’t have to deal with their attitude.

Girl, I wish I’d had 9 months to plan mine! Or even a year! What’s funny/annoying right now is NOW everyone is asking what they can do to help…with less than a month to go! I’ve got almost everything covered so there’s really nothing left!

I’m 7 months away and still hearing I’m doing it too soon and have plenty of time.  I tell you what – I’ve been engaged 9 months already and it took me all of those 9 months to get done what I’ve already done.  Thank god I still have some time left to finish the details, or else I’d be an insane person.

Heh, the only reason I’d tell you to relax, is to make me feel better about the fact that I’m behind the ball on planning!  It’s awesome if you are ahead of things – just don’t tell them what you’re doing to avoid those reactions (and be happy about saving money buying things on sale/coupons).

Some people dont realize how much time goes in to planning a nice wedding. Speaking of silk florals from MIchaels they have a tons more types of flowers right after christmas and they are much cheaper than too so i dont know if thats too late for you to wait.
