    Aw I know wedding planning can be very overwhelming. Remember to take breaks whenever you need to.

    I know the feeling. Just get a journal and write down the small things you want to get done. One day at a time. I went from having a whole year to planning to less than six months in a blink of an eye. But , I usually do a lot of planning an emails in the wee hours. Do what works best for your daily life and don’t forget to take time for you and your mate.


    A small lunch date or work out together always does the trick of relieving small stress. Hope this helps!tenor.gif

    I agree with Lisa,
    It’s a lot to do, break things down into small to do lists throughout the time you have left. Consider one of the checklists on WW or the knot. Maybe both? I find it useful to keep a notebook, I also have a wedding planner binder which I can reference if I need to. Post its, colored pens, highlight things. Also maybe enlist some help from someone you trust?
    Good luck, you can message me if there’s anything I could do to help. Best Diana

    Checklists and get your fiancé to help you. Where are you in the planning process? Start with these three decisions: budget, estimated guest list, venue.

    Oh! And if the details drive you crazy, maybe hire a wedding planner or choose a venue that offers all-inclusive (chairs, linens, etc) so perhaps there will be less for you to do.

    The thing is I don’t have a lot of time we got engaged in January and the wedding is August 😩 so less time at hand and to top it all off he’s not in the island until next month. Don’t get me wrong I’m getting help from his family overseas but mostly financial wise but I have to be up n done doing this n that ugh it’s a lot on me plus I have work and stuff

    Try Zazzle, Shutterfly or VistaPrint. They have sales every few weeks and their templates are easy to use!


    Sounds like you have a lot covered already. Take a moment to breathe. You’ve got this.

    I completely understand. There is always so much to do and sometimes I wish I had eloped. Having checklists definitely helpes. I also have 1-2 days a week where I dont do anything wedding related so I dont get overwhelmed.

    First just know you have time for your invites. They don't really need to go out until June. Use Zazzle they always have deals, or Etsy for a download template. Michaels even has kits you just print yourself.

    Second I felt like this a while ago. I had all these ideas floating and felt I was behind so I took a weekend and broke down my reception and ceremony by small manageable tables/areas then wrote the ideas down/things I needed and now I am tackling it table by table.

    EX:

    Welcome Table (candles, vases, 2 bouquets, escort cards, bubbles, kleenex, our picture, welcome sign)

    Bar: Bar menu, coasters and holder, mints, signature drink

    Ceremony Aisle

    Ceremony backdrop

    I also do most of the stuff on the weekend just because the weeks are already busy and I take one weekend a month off.


    Also biggest reminder is you don't have to have a lot if you don't want to. Just do what you can so you don't feel stressed.

    I know exactly how you feel. It should be the happiest time of your life, but it doesn't. So much to do even with a small wedding. I'm a list person so that is always my go to advise. I find it helps to cross items off the list!!

    It's definitely overwhelming. Is there someone that can help you? Personally, I tried to tie all the really important things into one must do session. (i.e. We met with the wedding venue this past weekend, picked our photographer, baker and florist). The menu was easy as we had a vision in mind from the get go, and the venue offered that vision - menu, check Smiley smile

    I think you just need to schedule yourself days where it's just wedding related and let the other stuff be. Find support both physically and mentally to help you get through this. Don't take the burden on alone otherwise you will go crazy. And no one wants a crazy bridezilla...

    You've got this, and you have an entire website of people willing to listen, vent and offer advice when needed.
