March 2012 Weddings

Checklist Panic

The other night over dinner, FI was asking what all we had left to do for the wedding... and I really had to think about it since I've been on a wedding planning hiatus since October (Nov & Dec are CRAZY busy at work and something had to give)... so I sat down this morning, looked at The Knot's checklist... added in some items of my own and came up with 61 things.  61!!!!!!  How is this possible?  I've been planning for a year already!

Anyone else having this same panic attack?

Re: Checklist Panic

  • I'm sure some of those things you don't have to worry about right now. Just tackle the ones that need to be done earliest first, and look over the list to see what your FI can help with, and what your friends/family can help with. You don't need to do it all alone!

    Yup! I'm panicing BIG time and if my Fi tells me one more time to take things 1 day at a time I'm gonna scream! Time to start chipping away at the list over Christmas break!
    BTW-81 to do's left on The Knot checklist...and that's not all of it!
  • Very much so. We had to halt planning for a while and now we have to kick it in gear.

    Yep!  I use my own check list but I have 55 at the moment... and that doesn't include all the meetings and stuff that you have to do during the last 1-4 weeks before the wedding.  I also know that I have plenty of time to get it done but I would rather be stressed about it now than wait until March.  I really want to use the month of March to figure out seating charts.. work out (almost) everyday.. and keep from getting sick!!!  And that's about it!!!

  • Um...I have 111!! items on the knot to-do list, and I know I need to add some things to that. I only have 81 days left (March 3rd!) PANIC!

  • I don't use TK's checklist, but no matter how much I do, I feel like I still have so much more! I feel ya, I'm totally to the stressing point. In reality, I have SO much done, it's more of the details that need to be completed. Regardless, I'm totally overwhelmed and my goal is to do as much as possible during my Christmas break from work.
