Stuff that I did a year out included:

– Deciding on favours
– Deciding and then creating guestbook
– Starting to collect gifts for bridal party

We DIY’d all our paper products for our wedding and we did them as soon as we possibly could. We’re now 13 days out and I’m SO thankful we did that as it’s crazy enough as it is at the moment!

Sounds like you have already done a lot! Have you figured out any details – like what format/readings/music you’ll use for the ceremony. Any particular pictures you want to be sure to get from your photographer (make some lists, both poses you like and who should be in what pictures for family & wp). If you’re having a bathroom basket or (inedible) favors, you could always have those ready. Will the men be renting or buying tuxes/suits and figure out where to get them from.

Otherwise, if you finish your half-done tasks, then it sounds like you will be ready to get married and can focus on your thesis!

You could also start shopping for bridesmaid/groomsmen/FMIL/FFIL gifts! It is on my list of to-do’s this summer.

Oh wow! You have sooo much accomplished already, I’m jealous! Now I am getting worried I don’t have enough done. I haven’t even started thinking about the registry or showers, and I haven’t even been dress shopping!

You do sound like you have a much busier year than me!

If you have any summer-themed items you want now is a good time to buy them since they’re on sale.  For example, I’m having buckets of flip flops for dancing at the reception, and I bought them around this time last year at Old Navy for close to $1.50 a pair.  Just a thought…
