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?

Thanks 🙂 and I guess I have SOME stuff done. I do have a venue, potentially a dress, cake is basically taken care of, I have my invitation kits…. and I think that is about it lol.

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.

@indibee: I found a 2009 edition in my room if that counts for anything. It just seems like it doesn’t count much for our wedding because we are doing EVERYTHING ourselves, meaning no vendors or anything. Though there are some things in there that have helped a bit 🙂

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.
