I think you are doing great. This is when I started doing the rest - the smaller things like favors, songs, flowers, etc. You've got tonnes of time just space it out so you aren't bombarded the last month :) trust me. At this point I had finally decided on maracas but hadn't even touched on OOT or fans or gifts. But it all just came nicely together. I don't even think I started a detailed to do list until I made my planning thread 3 months out.

@Wafflesmom haha! aww thanks :) I am sure I am just being hard on myself right now. I'm having Michaels withdrawals and now that I need a corner rounder i'm itching to go. I'm sure once I get a bit of Michaels back into my system I will feel inspired again.


@calgarybride2015 that makes me feel a lot better. I should definitely jump on that 'detailed list' I feel like my head is a little fogged with everything I have to do and that is probably why i'm feeling this way. :)

I'm going to put something in here and I know @calgarybride2015 will agree now that she's "an old married lady" lol  I've been on this site almost 5 years now, though not totally all the time. I left for a while and stopped in because someone had sent me a message. The ladies that were on my planning forum back in 2010 into 2011 are all gone now but every time one of them came back from Jamaica and back to our forum at the time (the BDW site was laid out very differently then) it was the same thing. "Ladies - don't stress. It all works out and the WCs know what they're doing. You're wedding will be perfect and all you need to do is relax."  Of course it was funny to hear everyone say that when they came back and of course everyone is skeptical. With all of the stupid drama that we dealt with, when it came time for our turn I was worried sick since it was just two of us and how were they going to deal with our silly little situation, and how was I going to get my dress done up since we had no guests, etc. etc.  Well of course I came back and said "oh yeah, it all went perfect and don't stress because the WCs all know what they're doing."  And it was all true! I know all the planning is stressful, and it's a foreign country, dealing with people by email that you've never met or haven't even talked to. And everything is being put together by pictures only. I realize all of that. But I promise you ladies - the WCs really do know what they're doing. It's all they do and the majority of them do it very, very well. The idea behind a DW was less stress!! Your weddings will be everything that you dreamed they would be and you're all going to be stunning brides! Believe me!

 

So @perianjay you're doing just fine! You still have 6 months and look at everything you've completed! Give yourself some credit! It will all work out!  And @Wafflesmom the same for you! You've both got things so well in hand and so well organized, even if it feels like you don't. When I read through your threads, I promise you, it's all beautifully put together!!


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

@acw271011 thank you! :) I think I just stress too easily sometimes haha. I totally believe you that it will all work out fine. I think we just have to have that drink soon at our little meet up and I will relax! :) :) haha 

I feel like it's the pressure of having that "perfect day" that "one big day" that we all buckle under and it causes us to worry sick about making it perfect.

I agree about the one big perfect day! Don't get me wrong. But I think that's why we stress but remember nothing is ever perfect. It's what we make of it. If you can let go and relax even a minor hiccup won't ruin a thing! I had some hiccups and some bad things happen (my dad) and I just let those go. I took it in for what it was and where I was and who I was with. And with that nothing could ruin my day :)

@calgarybride2015 that's a great way to look at it. I'm sure once I get to Mexico my worries will start to diminish. I can't ever be upset or stressed when i'm somewhere that beautiful, with a drink in my hand and great people around :)

I can't wait to hear how you feel after :) I was you 100%. I stressed about the silliest things. I remember staying up all night stressing about a seating chart when I realized my originally idea didn't match my table setup lol.
