I know what you mean, I planned wedding for 190 guests in 8 months. It was stressful, but worth it in the end. You can do it!!!

@pinkgreenandyellow:  Don’t worry. It seems overwhelming in the beginning but time will slow down a bit once you have your vendors nailed down. Try to enjoy the process and take your time with decisions. It will all come together and be perfect! And I promise you’ll have time to breathe again soon!

I know exactly what you mean.  I just got engaged last month (we are getting married in late feb./early march) and I am overwhelmed, too!  There are so many details to worry about and so much money to spend!

@pinkgreenandyellow:  You poor thing 🙁 That would stress me out, too!! I don’t know if this will help, but we’re date twins (April 20th, cool!) and you’ve done WAY more than me as far as planning goes. Also, my guest list ballooned to almost 200% of what I wanted as well. Don’t worry, it will all work out. seriously.

Whenever I get stressed (and I do a lot), my Future Mother-In-Law keeps reminding me that all these people are here to celebrate with you. You said that you’re close with your family. that’s awesome! In that case, you know that they won’t judge you, your Fiance, or your wedding if you don’t go ALL out for the event. They’ll just be happy and excited to be there with you.

It might take some work to find a venue that fits 200 (although if you’re inviting 200, your attendance might be more like 150), but it’s possible. April isn’t PEAK wedding season, so venues don’t fill up as fast. You’ve still got a fighting chance. And who knows? Maybe even some of the ones you already have picked out can hold 200! Just take 15 minutes tomorrow to call each and find out. You’ll feel a lot better once you’ve got that figured out, and you don’t have to wonder anymore.

Best of luck to you and your Fiance, and if you ever need any more support, head on over to the April 2013 board/April 20th thread! I always check there 🙂
