freaking out

Recommended Posts

Lisa - Hey no worries! I hardly did any planning for my wedding at all, I pretty much let the resort take care of everything except for the photography (I hired a photographer rather than using the resort's since I wasn't happy with the quality of their work). I agree, it is weird knowing that you're going to be married in six months and you have next to nothing to worry about as far as planning goes but it all works out in the end! :)

I did hardly anything from like 7, 6, and 5 months but I feel like things have been picking up now. Just crafting projects and such.

Lisa, just sit back and relax alittle for now. I felt the same before, also. We are keeping it very simple and pretty much sticking with the package. Sometimes this seems more stressful than planning something big because it seems like your missing something! Right? lol

Just wait patiently and your WC will contact you 2 months or so prior. It seems like not enough time, but it is. Trust us. With the exchange of just 2-3 emails, I have planned and chosen pretty much all our ceremony need. The WC at these resorts have everything down to the T, so no worries.

Take your mind off of things and chose your songs, accessories, and clothing, etc... You're really ahead of things now. We just got FI's outfit last week or so! I'm starting to search BDW for centerpiece ideas, as i'm planning on making and bringing our own, as well as table runners, chair sashes, sand ceremony photoframe/verse to read, and ceremony song CD, etc....

Search the "what I would have done different" postings and see if there's something you haven't thought of.

Happy Planning!

Totally normal to freak out, but I realized there wasnt much to do untill i hit the 2 month mark because so much you cant do without knowing your final guest list, ect. Just take this time and relax because next thing you know it will be 2 months to go and it will be wedding non stop!!!

I know exactly how you feel...I don't know if I'm coming or going...and it really just depends on the day!! One day everything is under control...and the next day I freak out ***LOL***

 

I can say one thing for sure...I've taken on so much more than I ever expected with a DW because I keep reading about all of these really cool DIY projects and OOT bag finds...that I just can't resist. I love this website...but I really need to stop reading!!! Too many ideas and sometimes I feel like I'm losing focus of things that need to be a priority.

 

Phew...feels so much better to let it out...doesn't it?!?! smile03.gif

At this point, no AHR because we're unsure of where we'll be so I don't even need to stress about that! lol As for the thoughts, I have the same ones. I keep buying clothes for the trip because I like them although I know if i'm patient, they'll go on sale!

I do have at least one, but it'll take like 1/2 hour! lol I might come up with more, we'll see! :)

Oh I had the same thing happen! All along when we were planning our wedding people would ask how it was going and I would say that I thought everything was done until we actually leave for the wedding. The crazy looks I would get started making me so paranoid! Then I started looking around here at all the details other people planned and I totally freaked out. I can honestly say now, looking back, that it was a waste of energy. It sounds like your wedding is similar to how mine was...I didn't have to plan the cake, flowers, decorations, etc. so really you just have to get yourself ready for a vacation! Everything else will get taken care of. That's why you do a destination wedding in the first place :)

Don't worry...totally normal...I really didn't do too much until i hit the 3 month mark and then I really started with all the DIY projects....that's the beauty of a DW you can do as little or as much as you want!!
