Where did all my time go?!?!

So, I've been spending the last 30 minutes or so catching up on threads and posting comments, and I just shot a glance at my signature ticker. Just a little over 3 months?! Where the hell did all my time go?!

I haven't shopped for dresses. I haven't found an officiant. I haven't had my first meeting with my coordinator. I feel so insanely behind!

Part of me wants to request an entire week off to get some stuff done (I could've sworn just last week I had 6 months left, what happened? LOL), but I know that's not going to be happening.

I'm hoping that, now with Christmas in the past, that work will start returning to its normal, slow yet steady pace and that I can use the lower hours at work to my advantage and get caught up.

    WOW!!  Right around the corner!  Get on it girl!!  (says the girl who is overwhelmed at the thought of even ATTEMPTING to plan a wedding!)  I checked out your planning bio just now and I'm a big fan.  Did you pick a ceremony option yet?  (I like #1 but they're both beautiful).

    <div>The more I think about it, the more I'm settled with Option #2. While I do agree that Option #1 looks absolutely lovely, and definitely captures the whole "vineyard" setting, it's also not too far from the road. The thought of people slowing down to sight-see makes me uneasy, mostly due to the fact that I do not like attention. A wedding is hard enough for me, lol. I want people to come around the corner and be wow'd. I also like the privacy of #2.</div>

    Oh I totally agree with you then.  I didn't realize it the spacing of both areas.  I wouldn't want my ceremony to be close to the road either!  Two thumbs up for privacy!!

    Holy crap girl!
    I am also freaking out, though I have like 4 months.  I am feeling so behind but really I am doing ok.  Today Fi and I went and looked at a hotel in our home town for us to stay in after the wedding (not the wedding night but a few days after the wedding).  It was really fun and I got warm fuzzies.  I can't wait to be married. We are also looking at tickets for Germany.  I am so thrilled about that.
    I bet you can find a dress in no time.  Do you need any help?  You know that we are here for you :)

    OMG! I don't mean to sound freaked, but most dresses won't come in that quick. I would go looking TODAY!

    Dude, yeah.  I know what you mean.

    I have just over 5 months to go, and I don't have a photographer or a bridal party yet.  I can't even think about it.

    <div>I have a <strong>very </strong>limited budget, so I'm (more than likely) not going to have any kind of personalized, custom dress. It'll probably end up either A) Off the Rack, or B) Department store.</div>
