      First off welcome to the forum and congrats. Ok now calm down.....breathe....you're fine. You still have two/three months (I don't know your exact date in January). I'm one month away and only now doing my place cards and other things. I will print my menus and programs next weekend. It may seem like its right around the corner but if you pace yourself and try to get a little done on evenings or even on weekends you'll be fine. Good luck and happy planning!!

            Don't stress out. You still have plenty of time. Just start doing things one by one and before you know it...you will be all set.

                  I know how you feel, I had a minor freak out this weekend trying to figure out what I need to do over the next 6 months, I'm afraid that with the holidays time is going to fly by!

                    I know how you feel because I'm getting married in January too.  I feel like I have so much to do and I'm not even sure about some of the things that I need to do.

                      Don't stress, like they said take a deep breathe..don't feel compelled to have every detail like some of the brides here. Some knew what they wanted and were able to plan ahead of time, some didn't know and made a decision to either fit everything they wanted for their day.....make your wedding fit your personality and go with the flow...I would determine what you really want and start planning from there.  Look at the threads most of the work (templates, ideas etc..) are already done for you.  Set aside some time  develop a time line and get them done. This is the time to start calling your friends over (maybe with food and drinks, but preferably after they're done helping you) and making a day out of some of the things you want to do.  Good luck!
