January 2013 Weddings

Am I the only procrastinator?

So 17 days until the wedding, our house isn't finished, I have no reception music picked out, my bubbles are bowless and I just took bridal portraits yesterday! I'm sure there a million things I haven't thought of but I'm freaking out and just wondering if I am the one out there?

Re: Am I the only procrastinator?

  • My wedding is January 5th and I feel like I'm struggling to finish everything in time! I still have to make my favors, write out 130 place cards and decorate them, and buy some last minute stuff! Ugh its a headache but it'll pay off in the end :)
  • Join the crowd!
  • Yeah. I also have bowless bubbles and some that were bowed but were eaten by dogstroyer. I have favors that are lable-less. FI and I don't even have a house. We're going out to look at a few today. You are not alone in being behind and which Christmas less than a week away, I don't think I'll catch up any time soon :-S Which is problematic since I'm also a 1-5 bride. oiy.
  • Ooh- I feel for you Ladies!  When setting our date, I wanted it as far away from Christmas as possible!!  It is mid Jan...the 18th...which isnt too far either though!!  It's also like 2 weeks before my birthday LOL...hmm- Christmas, our will be anniversary and my birthday within a month of one another!  WHAT WAS THIS GIRL THINKING?!?!  LOLOLOL.  JK!  ; )

    I am not doing favors.  Having a sweet/salty table instead so that will save on time doing those.  And as for escort cards, we are going to use an old mirror and write names on there for seating.  We are doing a buffet, so this is for seating purposes only.  It works.

    I have to go through my knot checklist though again. 

    OHH and the big dilemma for me- well, I will write a separate post for that..
    God is Faithful!

    lol yes, you are procrastinating but you are certainly not the only one.  I think I scare my vendors when I tell them that I'm done, just waiting for the day.  I'm a crazy type A tho :)
  • I'm 38 days out...

    I need to decide what I'm going to do with my hair.

    I need to finish my table numbers - print out photos, paint frames, etc.

    Add sparkle to pine cones for centerpieces - spray glue, mica snow, etc.

    Decide on escort cards, then execute!

    Plan the ceremony - haven't even met the officiant yet!

    I'm sure there is more...

    So, no, you're not the only one!

    Hahaha! That's how I am. I think it weirds them out. Plus I'm just kind of like "whatever" about a lot of things. My DJ was shocked when we didn't have any songs to put on the do not play list and had 2 songs on the play if possible list. Otherwise we told him to have at it and that we don't mind if he takes requests.

    All that is left is packing the wedding stuff into boxes! And I can't pack the last 2 boxes until we get all of our RSVPs back. Waiting on one more person!

     

  • No the only one!  I am most certainly a procrastinator as well!  It helps me that so many of the people on this board are getting married earlier in the month and starting to freak out a little.  I'm 1/26 so it motivates me to get moving.  Feeling like I'm behind is the only way I actually get things done.  Mostly just waiting for RSVPs to come back.  :/

  • I managed to check off a bunch of materials to finish projects yesterday and our floor is tiled. School wedding and building a house at the same time was not my brightest idea. Throw is the holidays and I really messed up. Reassuring to see I'm not alone though!
  • Definitely not the only one!

    I don't have our table numbers started, nor escort cards (though I do have the supplies for them).  Need to do welcome bags, figure out what I want to do with my hair, order the furs for the bridesmaids, finish up shopping for BM gifts and wrapping them, plan the ceremony (just a minor little detail there...haha!)  I'm giving myself a break on most things until after Christmas and then I'll kick things into high gear.  I'm not until 1/25, so I still have 35 days.  

  • I'm 19 days out and we have a TON left to do. We decided that if some stuff doesn't get done, then it's just not happening and that's ok. Can you delegate anything to anyone?

    Delegating makes me nervous! I'm a procrastinating control freak! Haha
