    I feel like I'm pretty on top of things.My wedding is 337 days away and we have our ceremony site and reception venue booked, a photographer, a florist.  The next big thing we need is the DJ but I think we'll wait until I go back to school to book that.  I'm out of $$$!  After that, we just have the small details like centerpieces and such to worry about.

    We are 149 days out!  Eek!  I'm feeling mostly good, but somewhat stressed.  Our reception venue is still being a PITA about one major issue.  I'm supposed to hear back from them today so hopefully it will all be resolved!Things I've accomplished:- Reception venue booked- Ceremony venue almost booked (need to send the check)- Photographer booked- DJ booked- Cake ordered- Dress bought- Bridemaids dresses are in- Honeymoon is bookedTo do still:- Invitations - designing them this weekend!- Meet with a florist- Engagement pictures- Finalize the menu- Order chair covers- Book hair & makeup- Set up dress alterations- Order ketubah- Buy wedding bands- Make table numbers & escort cardsI'm sure I'm forgetting things, but you get the idea!  Most of the big things are done and the more "fun" stuff is left, so that makes me happy!  :)

    I'm 21 days out. I'm getting nervous!!!! :) I just sent in my balance for the photographer and will send out the balance for the reception hall tomorrow. I'm feeling pretty good about things. I need to finish the BM and GM's gifts, decide if the program paddle fans are worth it, and order my wholesale flowers today. Other than that, things are moving right along! :) How about for you??

    I'm feeling prety good overall.  I am at 3 1/2 months out, and have the big things pretty much taken care of (I'm a procrastinator).  I definitely get my moments of stress and freak outs!  But overall doing well.  Now it's getting to the point where the more details we decide on, the more I can imagine the day... and I think how happy I am to marry my sweetheart!!

    dogluver - I do agree! You have a great handle on things! Hopefully that means you won't be stressed right before the big day. :)

    sunshinegrl1 - that's my plan. The best thing is my church provides a coordinator and our rehearsal is the Wednesday before because of the holidays so that will be done and the hotel provides a coordinator and a banquet captain for the entire day. I have my spreadsheets and timelines in the works and have given our bridal party tentative schedules for the entire week. So far, I've felt no stress. Just ask me when it's a week out. Who knows.

And as if that wasn't stressing me out enough, I have heard through the grape vine how some of my FIL are frustrated with me over the birdal party b/c they aren;t included in it... Seriously it is 3 months before the wedding and now you want to start with that???? UGH!!! I know it will work out one way or another but right now I just don't see how exactly this will work out... I am freaking out over my wedding right at the moment...
