Anyone else on a rampant "just get it done" spree?

So the wedding's less than a month away and I've suddenly just sort of gone into wedding frenzy mode!  Tonight alone I've bought my candy buffet cellophane bags and ties (hobby lobby online), oval labels for the favor bags (from labelsbythesheet), AND all of my votive candles and candle holders (candles4less). 


On the one hand I feel productive, on the other, I feel a little frenzied and frantic.  I've been making seating charts, sending checks and emails to vendors constantly, going to wedding-related appointments (fittings, centerpiece trial, tasting/finalizing menu, etc.), etc.  And I feel like I still have TONS to do!  A lot of it is stationery related (long story), like printing menus, programs, etc. which I wasn't planning to have to do...  Then there's getting the candy, scoops, OOT bags, gifts for the parents and wedding party, etc.  It just seems never-ending!!


Am I the only one who's feeling sort of last minute and rushed?  Anyone else have some good suggestions for keeping calm and staying on top of everything without going insane/not sleeping for a month straight?  I should add that I also have a full time job, so I guess amend the previous question to include "without quitting my job" ;)... IDK, I guess it's just good to vent about it and then keep pushing forward... :)  Good luck to us all!

Definately. Everything from before is all nice and I put tons of hard work into it. Now, its half assed, and not as nice looking, but at least its done and I dont have to worry about it

Same thing here.  I am just so ready to be his wife.  FI even commented on how I am cutting out things I said I wanted before.  He said that I only have one chance to get things right, I told him in the end I get him so it will be right.

I feel the same way!!!  We are three weeks out and I have no idea when we're going to get this stuff done. To top if off FI is leaving for his bachelor party at the KY Derby Friday-Sunday...hmmm yet the day of MY bachelorette party (last weekend) I ran all over the place to fit in our appts with the priest and church music director.  Sorry this is now turning into a vent on my end, lol.  He's been helping, don't get me wrong, but I really feel like it's all falling on me and he just gives the approval/disapproval...which is super annoying.  I want to say, you don't get an opinion when you don't put the work in!!!  Sorry, long story short, I feel the same way :)

I am exactly the same way!  I've been sitting at work making phone calls and just crossing things off my list as fast as possible.  Just trying to get everything finished by the 14th ... eek!!

I second all of you girls, I have 23 days and now is when I start doing the pomanders which I haven't finish, the bouts the labels for the parasols, the ring bearer shell and the bucket for the flower girl.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one!  I would like to say though that candles4less got my votives to me SUPER fast (2 days and it was just regular shipping) and my best friend has been helping SO much!  We went to Michaels yesterday and figured the programs out.  I think I just need to keep breathing, do what I can, and then let the rest go. 


Good luck to us all!!  Keep breathing and don't sweat the small stuff! :)
