You need a checklist and fast. I love TheKnot.com for its checklist, and only its checklist. It has been a great help to us and I hope it will help keep things in perspective for you, too. I’m sure there are plenty of other resources out there, but I found this one to be very easy to adjust to our needs, etc. Give it a go, and good luck!

You could start with a rough checklist of things you want on your wedding day but don’t have done or purchased yet. Then move on to a more critical to do list to fill in the corners.

What do you have done so far? Budget? Guest list? Venue?

It’s SO hard, i often wondered how women seemed to just “know” what to do, like it came natural to them, like there was a frikken wedding planning gene that all women were born with!

I agree, start with a checklist, and places like the knot, weddingwire etc, have ones that give you an idea of what you’re supposed to do and when based on your wedding date.

@cyndistar3: I totally suggest hitting target and getting the Real Simple Weddings mag.

My Maid/Matron of Honor (well, MOH-to-be, at the time) went right out after our engagement and showed up at my door with about 3 magazines and a nice planning binder. I haven’t used the binder so much anymore, but reading through it and using its checklists and questions lists (great for looking at vendors) helped me a ton! And the RSW mag was SO informative. Totally worth the $10 or $20 it cost.

@indibee:  Does the current issue of RSW come with a subscription freebie?  I got one for  Dirty Delete and me to use last fall and it had a card for a year of  Real Simple.  That has been fun to share. 

Very good recommendation, that mag seems to make the planning a lot less scary.

Exactly what everyone says. Having a checklist is awesome!

My mom got me an awesome binder after I got engaged, it has checklists, vendor questions, explanations of why things are done. Love it, although I haven’t looked at it in  while.
