    I just realized that I have just over two months left until my wedding and I haven't accomplished anything. When I realized just how little time I had left my stress level skyrocketed. I am still trying to hold back tears I am so upset at myself. What are absolute must dos? I know I still need to get my dress altered, get FI suit, mail in my information to the resort, get my invitations done, but what else absolutely must be done first. I have been so busy looking at all the little nice to have things and have completely let time slip away. I am so embarassed. If someone can help me compile a list of absolutes I would appreciate it. I don't want to forget anything important.

    Maybe this is why FI got me an organizer. LOL I made him actual return it and told him I didn't need it. He knows me so much better than I even know myself.

      It just depends on what you want at your wedding. It can be as complicated or simple as you make it. My wedding is the week before yours. Here is what I have done. My dress is being altered, I sent my invitations, I have my place reserved, I have my OOT bags and some items for the inside, I just got the bridesmaids dresses.
      Things still to do-
      finish OOT bags
      make programs, placecards etc
      reserve photographer
      Get FI's suit and groomsmen attire
      Finish my newsletter I am sending a few weeks before the wedding
      Figure out my centerpieces and buy what I need

      I am sure there are more things. Like I said it all depends on what you want to tackle. Really all you HAVE to have there is you and your groom. How many people are you expecting?

        If I had to guess I would say only our very immediate family will be there. So I'm guessing at 10. We haven't sent out invites yet so there may be a few that surprize me.

        I don't know why I kept thinking I had more time than this. I know my FI will help but I need to make a list of things that must be done.

        So far this is my list:
        Mail out our documentation
        Buy shoes
        Have dress altered
        Buy the remainder of things needed to complete invitations
        Mail invitations out
        Finalize agreement with photographer
        Order Flowers
        Buy a suit for FI
        Pick out music for ceremony and reception

        I have a ton of things that I would LIKE to accomplish but I think these are the things that absolutely must be done before anything else.

        At least I know I picked out my groom already.
