you could also add buying bridesmaid gifts, figuring out your jewelry and undergarments

I think you all are on track. I found nothing of mine really started coming together until near the end when I had to make sure it was all taken care of - then things didn't go or seemed incomplete or or or .... and then I started finalizing it all. Also remember the decor doesn't make the wedding!! Remember the beauty of where you are and realistically that you also have to get it there :) trust me I'm packing right now and it's not easy. Less is better, trust me :) it will come together from a piece here and a piece there to a finished product.

6 months out? Relax for a minute before things start getting crazy =)

 

you seem to have everything together already! at 6 months I was making spreadsheets and lists upon lists... which led to more lists... and more to-dos, lol.... You look to be right on track, it all comes together nicely as the date gets closer, trust us =)

I'm 6 months out too and you make me feel like I have nothing done! Our deadline for booking is April 1st so I know alot will be last minute. I'm waiting on the stamps for invites to come in so they can go out and going to buy material for the BM dresses tomorrow (someone is making them). We have about 25 people that have booked their flights already. As far as decorations go, it's already beautiful enough, less is more!

 I am the QUEEN of the spreadsheet! I needs lists to keep track of my lists!  That's probably the main thing I'm accomplishing at this point.

Custom BM dresses--that's amazing!  And I love when people tell me that "Less is more" with decorations....I have a hard time letting go of those Pinterest-perfect weddings you see pictures of all the time, but I need to tell myself that those people spend a TON of money on weddings like that and it's just not realistic.

You seem so organized, it's hard to picture you doing anything last minute!! I just read on your thread that you leave tomorrow--I don't know you and I'm super excited for you!  I can't WAIT to hear how your wedding goes and all the advice I'm sure you'll have to offer all of your loyal followers :) haha!

Don't sweat the small details. In the whole grand scheme of things they don't matter. I wish I had never stressed about frames, vases and signs for the bar, etc. No one (including myself) noticed they were there. The beauty of your location is all you need :)

Oh really? That makes me feel better because I really don't have anything like that planned and I was starting to wonder if I should. But if you and your guest didn't notice them then my guest won't either :)
