Hello, wedding wire community! I've been scrolling through forums trying to see if anyone else has posted something like this, and then I realized that I could just post it myself! How silly!
My fiance and I got engaged last August, and we're getting married at the end of May this year. As long as I've been old enough to talk about marriage, my mom has always told me that she would pretty much take most of the planning off my hands when I got married. This was GREAT with me, since I'm a very ignorant person when it comes to events and details boggle me.
However, once we had the venues nailed down, she got very busy and no longer initiated anything. In December, I realized that she had somehow completely changed gears and was expecting me to plan most of it, so I started reaching out to vendors and making a million to do lists and buying wedding planning books.
I'm officially at 100 days before the wedding, and while I have a lot of the main details figured out, there's so much little stuff (and even more things that I feel like I'm missing). Usually I'm extremely organized and opinionated, but with how little experience I have, I honestly don't care about a lot of the details that I'm having to uncover and decipher. I would DEFINITELY hire a wedding planner if possible, but we're pushing the limits of our budget as is. Can anyone suggest ways for me to stay organized and feel on top of this event, when I have zero experience planning even a birthday party? I have my to do lists and my spreadsheets, and I'm so very very excited, but I still feel overwhelmed.
I appreciate any help you guys can give me!
