Welcome to Weddingbee!  It seems that you have things well in hand already, so that’s a good sign!  I might suggest a DOC, so that you have someone who makes sure that your look is cohesive and not thrown together.  It takes a lot of stress off!  (I didn’t have one and things came out fine, but everyone tells me it is worth it!)

It sounds like you have a lot of stuff accomplished!!! You still have plenty of time to get everything done – just try to relax – you have plenty of time to get it all done!

And welcome to Weddingbee!!!

Just pick one look for decor and stick with it.  Don’t change your mind a million times and buy new decorations and waste money.  That’s what happens with a lot of brides.  So don’t buy anything until you know that it is absolutely what you want for decor.  And I wouldn’t worry too much about everything looking thrown together.  Most people don’t pay that much attention to decor.  I spent so much time on mine and no one really cared in the end.  By the end of the night the flowers were dead and it was sad to see them just getting thrown in the garbages.  People are there to support you and love you, they shouldn’t be judging the decor that much.  The only ones that will are probably engaged and planning their own weddings.

Congratulations!  It sounds like you have a lot done already. I deal with the wedding crazies with lists. I’m a list girl.  As in, I have to make a list (the old fashioned way with pen and paper or print out my handy excel file and hold it) and cross things out as I complete them or I will go insane. 

For expenses, I split up mine and mr. noodle’s expenses into “fixed expenses” like rent, insurance, DTE, cell phones, whatever else we pay about the same amount of money on every month and then another list for food, gas, fun money, etc. It’s a lot easier to budget that way and when you look at the one total it makes that big number in your head that is wedding expenses feel less scary. I also started rolling with cash… I take my budget and give myself cash for the week for those extra expenses instead of using my debit card (or help me… the credit card). It’s harder to buy those lattes 5 times a day or whatever your vice is when you have to give up cold hard cash…. lol and if I need anything extra I have to pull it from my savings account. 🙂
