My weddings 10/24/20 and we’re a little over 2 months out and I’m already stressing out and feel like I’m behind on everything. We had to change most of our plans cause of covid (like all brides) and down size and change venues and basically now do everything ourselves with a short amount of time. I got engaged in March and thought I’d have enough time but now we’re less than 80 days away and I feel like I have so much still to do and wishing that I had been more on top of things. I’m trying to have everything I have to order online be ordered by the end of this month because I’m just so anxious that things will arrive late and I just finally hired a videographer which I just feel like is sooo behind schedule than I should be so the stress is eating at me a little. And on top of it all I’m in a different state than the weddings going to be held in, and my fiancé and I are long distance until a week before the wedding which makes planning even more overwhelming. I’ve got most of the major vendors out of the way, but when I think of the list of things I need to buy and finalize I start panicking. How does everyone deal with wedding stress? And October brides how much planning do you have left?
Drink. A lot lol. I world say just make sure all vendors are paid, start making a list of things you need to have day of. Maybe two weeks prior confirm all vendors are good to go. If you're traveling to another state make sure you pack everything down to your veil. I am all about check lists.
I Have All Of The Major Things Done. Now Its Time To Focus On The Smaller Things And Let Me Tell You, It Is ALOT. I Feel Like Im Forgetting Things Even Though I Make To Do Lists All The Time. Im Just Trying To Do One Thing At A Time So Im Not Overwhelmed,
Our wedding is 10-10, for the most part everything is done. We’re just waiting on physical RSVPs and we still need to put our welcome bags together but can’t do that until we are at our venue to save “space” as We have a DW.

Yes I make so many list but I always feel like I’m missing something. Im trying to do the same but I get overwhelmed so easily, I know the more I get done the less anxious I’ll feel.
My wedding is 10/10 as well and I think I got all the major things done. Just hired our last vendor, a videographer, last minute this week which I'm super excited about. I make lists as well, but take it one step at a time. I run through the wedding day in my head step by step, and see what else I need. I take things slow and focus on projects like a week at a time so I don't overwhelm myself or overthink things. This week I worked on getting our invites printed and created our registry. Next week I will assemble them and send them out, and also work on another DIY project. It is exhausting, but will be worth it in the end!
10/23 here. The remainder things to plan for us are waiting for physical RSVPs so we know how many favors to order, how much alcohol to order, and put in final counts for catering. Anything smaller I have to double check on, but I think we are in OK shape. The waiting game is the worst! 😖
