My wedding is not until January, and I'm obsessed with being engaged, but at the moment I feel like I cant plan on anything until the approval for my wedding date for the church goes through. Any advice, on anything I should plan while I wait? I have probably till Monday to hear about my date getting approved. And just being on here makes me more obsessed about my wedding and I cant stop thinking about it.
Guest list, addresses for guest, quotes from other vendors for the potential date, style of your wedding... I was on pinterest a ton! Lol also, of you're into podcasts bridechilla is hilarious and helpful!
You can pretty much plan anything that isn't date specific. Have you chosen any other vendors? Gotten quotes? Started working on your guest list? Looking at dresses? Do you have colors picked out? Have you picked and asked your BP? Have you started designing your invitations? Six months really isn't that long to get everything done!

I pretty much have my colors, my dress, got bridesmaids, went to a bridal extravaganza a few days ago got alot of quotes from there, started designing invitations also, got the guest list done. I'm just waiting for the date to start getting vendors like, venue, videography, djs etc.
I see. Well you can definitely start researching them even without the date. Are you guys going to do premarital counseling? Even if so, you could look into some premarital books or workbooks. We recently purchased a book called "101 Things I Wish I Knew When I Got Married." It has great reviews. We plan to reach a chapter or two a week and discuss it together!
For us, we have a tentative date, based on how we expect the next couple years to go (may 2020 here), so, while nothing is written in stone, we basically have everything planned. We have the guest list, BP list and everyone has been asked, his attire (mine has been flipped because of recent decisions, but the same general color and length), we have the food we are serving, teeny tiny budget so we are responsible doing everything we can ourselves including the cakes (gotta have vegan friendly cake for our veganites!), you could look at hair and makeup, shoes, BP attire, bouquets, favor ideas, table decorations, think about parking, come up with a back up plan in case your church can't accommodate your day, etc
