    Anyone else with less than 3 months to go until the big day and feeling a bit overwhelmed with the remaining things to do? I'm definitely getting there but I still waiting on the RSVPs which are due back March 15th. This number will determine how many of each thing i'll need. I'm almost done with Programs, menus, welcome letter... Got the Groom almost suited, got me almost gowned up. pressies are almost taken care of. Seems like i have a lot of stuff done just have a lot of little things like shoes, wrappings, printing everything out, organizing everything...and i'm getting freaked out.!!!

      Yeah the last two months really start to fill up with stuff to do. We are now doing our wedding local and pretty much every weekend of the next two months is packed with stuff. Just take stuff one step at a time and it won't seem so bad.

        I feel your pain. Um, we haven't started looking for suits (this weekend's plans) I just sent out my invites last week. And I haven't even started my programs, menu, or welcome letters. So don't feel bad!!

          I am right there with you. I didn't even mail out hte invites yet! but that should happen tomorrow. I had completely forgotten directions to the AHR, so I printed them today, then I need to cut them and stuff them. I hope to work my fingers off tonight and complete it. There is so much to do still.

          My sister and I are making the flowergirl dresses and we have the fabric and pattern and haven't even begun cutting (we have 2 to make). Oh yeah, and I am making all the OOT bags. Like sewing them from scratch. They are all cut and put together, I just need to sew them, so I hope thye just zip right along.

          Lots of other stuff, but I am going to stop there before I have a heart attack.

            Uh, YEAHHH!!! Add me to the number. I'm behind on a ton of things too. I'm trying to pull together my OOT bags, working on invitations, my groom is STILL not suited (and he doesn't want my help), I still need a veil, shoes, jewelry, clothes for the trip, and so much more. The final payment from my guests is due March 21, so I'm in the home stretch here! I've been making lists and trying to cross stuff off every day.

              Yup... I already am having sleepless nights thinking of all the things I have to do. The UPS man is becoming my new best friend. I still have to send out the invites... not to mention MAKE THEM! Haha... I have all the materials now and I've set aside this coming entire weekend to work on them and get them sent out... I also want to get going on a wedding website. Oh... and sew the colored table overlays I'm making (still waiting to hear from WC as to the table measurements). I still have to do the iron ons for the OOT bags... and so many other things... I, too, better stop here before I give myself a heart attack.

                Oh brother!!! Add me right on in. While I love my ticker to death, everytime I look at it I want to cry cuz it reminds me of how far behind I am!
                I have a long list of things I have yet to do.
                OOT Bags...just ordered YESTERDAY
                Still have to do the iron transfers when they come in
                Then putting all the stuff together that goes in the OOT bags
                Haven't gotten the raffia fans yet, then when they come I have to put the ribbon & flowers on them
                INVITES...HELLO....Those will probably go out next week!!!!
                Travel Info Packet
                Welcome Letter
                Wedding Jewelry
                And I'm the one who said that I wanted to be packed at least 2 weeks before the wedding. Why do I think thats not gonna happen.

                Sigh...I'm gonna go cry again. I don't know what happened. Where did the time go?

                Ahhhh! I'm so glad I read this thread early on, I think I might make myself sick if it was more than one page long so far. Just reading how close and how busy all you 2 month-ers are has made my tummy in a knot

                    You know what, I think I'm gonna invite my girlfriends to a "HELP YOLANDA GET HER STUFF TOGETHER" Assembly Party.
                    I get a funny feeling that I'd be the only one there!!!
                    I may have to disguise this as a "LETS HAVE SOME DRINKS" Party just to lure them in.
