    My plan was to get as much done with the wedding as possible before starting my nursing program in August. With my wedding being 16 months away, i've sent out STD's, booked a hotel in florida, created a wedding website, and even put down my deposit with my wedding coordinator...

    And now I'm getting...dare I say it? BORED!!!

    What can I do that I haven't already, obviously I have to wait to do things like invites, OOT bags, etc...

    Are any of you 16 months from your wedding. What should I be doing?
    This summer I'm going to start trying on dresses, but I'm getting soooo impatient.. Is this normal?

      Well, my wedding is in May 2010 and so far I have completed, picking out/purchasing BM dresses, buying grooms attire, bought the flowers for my mom to do my flowers and BM flowers and centerpeices, I've bought my raffia fans, bought wedding reception shoes, BD shoot shoes, found photographer for wedding and BD shoot and engagement pics, created the info brochure for Tybee Island, bought everything for my MIB invites, and reserved our date with a WC in Tybee, none of the places we are looking at does wedding packages like some of the out of the country destinations....ummmm.... I think that is it right now, I bought everything with my tax refund this year and I am currently storing everything in my old room at my mom's house...which she is so nice about. I don't want my FI to see how much I have bought....he'd freak. Our resort doesn't have 2010 prices out yet, so hope everything is available come time to do it.

        I started planning before nursing school (16 month accelerated program, aghh so glad to be done!) so planning was long but I didn't have much time to plan anyway while I was in school, but during breaks I lived on these boards, BDW is amazing! I also like to look at pics and bios on Project Wedding and the knot, that way when it comes time to get invites and dresses etc you have a good idea of what you want. Other than that, try to find out the nursing books you will need and start reading! If nothing else get the Pickar Dosage Calculations book and read/do the whole thing!

          you will be bored now but after a while there will be so many little items/details to do. have you written your vows...selected your cake,, programs style, programs, actual invites, welcome letters, timelines for guests, etc...there are tons of small details that can add up but you are fortunate to have so much time in which to pace yourself!

            Your right, I've done the big things, but I'm sure the details will add up! I just don't know where to start next! I'll figure it out.

              I just graduated nursing school in December. It was hard planning a wedding and having to study at the same time. My problem is I am addicted to this forum and wanted to be on here and not studying, but I got through it and you'll do the same. Best of luck in your nursing career and wedding planning.

                  Same story here! I graduated in Dec too, and am very glad now that I don't have to feel guilty spending all the time I want on here... did you take the NCLEX yet?
