You people all make me feel really stressed out!

I have:

a venue

a dress

an officiant

a florist (maybe… my venue said they would take care of the flowers)

 

But that’s it! Am I actually that far behind or are all you people just nuts?! Tongue out

We haven’t finalized our menu yet and we haven’t done anything at all for the rehearsal dinner. We don’t have table numbers/place cards/programs.. basically no paper products are done at all!

@Lemma

No worries love, everyone works differently! My sistuation as of being an out of towner made my picking process a speed challenge whie i was still in town for a limited amount of time. 7 months is still a long time to figure out the details – crazy as i am, i have my reasons! ๐Ÿ™‚ ocd could be part of it though

i just read you tinytina: dont fret!!! you have lots of time and those decisions can be thrown around a bit befor being final, try to keep having fun with this! and step back every now and then to gain your perspective on your choices. I try to look through the guests eyes and not play it too seriously.

@Jessoverall: Haha, thanks, I feel a bit better!

 

@acebride: I keep telling myself that my brother and SIL planned their wedding in a couple of months while one of them was in Thailand and the other was in Kenya. The wedding was in Toronto! Just think, if they can do that, we can do anything in 7 months!

@TinyTina:

I have a question about your wine box ceremony. Are you using red wine? I like the idea of the ceremony, but I only like white wine and I’ve heard that white wine doesn’t age well.

@Lemma: Well, Fiance and I only drink red wine, so the decision was pretty easy for us. ๐Ÿ™‚ You’re right that white wine doesn’t age well though… Most only last 2 – 3 years. I believe Chardonnays have the longest shelf life, but you can go to a local wine shop and probably get better advice. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have also heard a variation of the wine box ceremony where you open the box every year.. drink the wine, read the letters and then replace them with another bottle of wine and another set of letters to be drank/read on each anniversary. That might be a good idea if you’re going to use white wine! HTH!
