So im just under 6 months and im starting tk stress. I feel like I have nothing to do yet everything to do! I am having a hard time not knowing our final number because I can buy favors or book transportation....even o don't know how many centerpieces I need. Its driving me a little crazy! Does anyone else feel like this? Does anyone have any suggestions to figure stuff out without a final number?
Girl...right there with you. We're almost 5months out and its rough. We have 110 guests on our list so we planned for ~10 tables (they seat 10 each) and some extra decor for the gift/favor table and sweetheart table. Will we end up needing all 10 tables? I highly doubt it. Its basically a destination wedding. But I got a good deal on everything so a couple extra wont kill me.

Yea I don't think I'll under purchase.. but i don't want to purchase stuff and end up with like 50 extra favors! However I'm doing photo frames for our photo booth...so I suppose some people could just get an extra frame.
Totally right there with you! May 30th! Like i feel like i should be doing something but then i feel like it’s too early to keep doing things. I have all these ideas but they don’t necessarily need to be done right this instant but i want them to!
Although my wedding is a year away I always thought about this as well !! Like how can I save my money and have the budget wedding when I don’t know how many People to actually expect . My post is not helpful lol but I did want to say you guys are a REALLY cute couple 🤗🤗😍😍
I want to do all the stuff I need a count for too! I bought the candle votives for the tables already, I’m assuming I’ll have 15 tables but if I don’t, I can put the votives elsewhere. My mom and stepdad harvest their own honey and that’s going to be my favors, so they’re just going to bottle a ton of little jars of honey and whatever doesn’t get used they’ll just give away or sell.
I want to order my invitations now but I have to wait until our tasting in January to know what food choices to put on the RSVP.
im definitely interested in what to do when stressed and essentially a hostage to time lol
i am ok with extra centerpieces so I’m getting mine at the highest possible lol I know florists can be fun too so im not using one lol
i think the only things I actually have to “leave until late” are getting in my food numbers, stressing over kids growing and when to order what for them, and stressing over getting wrong size for bridesmaid who will have baby in march
then worrying that my vendors are perfect lol will they be on time? Are they accurate in their set up & break down times? Are they as good as the reviews? I think im going to be worst when I just have to leave it in their hands and seriously pray to God I hired the right people lol
I understand completely! We're right under 5 months and our 200-person original plan is now 255. All of my current numbers are based on 200 people... so that means more centerpieces, more tables, more cake... I'm dying!
