It can be as relaxed or as stressful as you make it. You don’t NEED to stress out about favors and seating charts or how the freakin napkins are folded. Buuuuut, you do need to have some type of reception where you’re feeding (& thanking!) your guests. Oh, a guest list & invites are a good idea too. 🙂

I think there are a lot of little details that are easy to forget about, especially if you want to DIY a lot of stuff. Our engagement is 13 months long, and I’ve definitely taken breaks for a month or so where I get very little done, but mostly I’ve been pretty busy with wedding stuff this whole time. A lot can’t be done until closer to the wedding.

THere are sooooo many little details I never anticipated, (and I’m a very detail oriented person).  And so many of those things can’t be done until certain times, (like weeks or moths before the wedding).  Also it’s not just all on you.  You are working with a ton of vendors that have thier own timelines for things as well.

hmmm.. I think you can do it. You just have to stick to your guns! You like it keep it, don’t change your mind! But you have to be ready for last minutes or just out of no where changes and be able to remember that certain things have a certain time line.

Actually for someone that had to move the date twice and now am getting married 8 months after the original date, you do not want to get done too soon.  It takes some of the fun and excitement out of it to have everything done

Hurry up and then wait is no fun!!!  So you get bored, second guess your theme, your dress etc

I agree that you can be as much or as little detail oriented as you choose!  I was engaged for about 9 months and had only really booked the venue and ordered my dress when it dawned on me that I’m getting married in 4 months!!  That was in May and I stress over every single little detail every day but that’s how I choose to plan.  I am very particular.  If the important tasks are complete and you don’t want to stress then I say, “don’t” and enjoy your engagement 🙂
