I'm in a rut

So I'm back from vacation. And the wedding made me even more excited for our wedding. BUT I'm in a planning rut. I just haven't wanted to do anything. Here are some of the things on my To-Do list..

  • Finalize invitation wording
  • Order invitations/place cards
  • Book hotels for our New Orleans honeymoon
  • Look for flights for our honeymoon (we decided to fly since I've never flown before)
  • Browse/Purchase my veil (I'm still contemplating asking my Mom to make it)
  • Browse/Purchase wedding shoes
  • Find taper candles to accompany our Unity Candle
  • Make throwaway bouquet
  • Finish my Table # project
  • Find ribbon for my bouquet
  • Find bridal lingerie
  • Decide if we will have toasting flutes/cake servers
  • Crinoline slip
  • Alter Grandma's ring bearer pillow
  • Programs
  • Cake topper
  • Look for Girls/Guys and parent gifts
  • Book Rehearsal dinner venue
  • Garter
  • Frames for Grandparent pictures

To me this looks overwhelming. And I know I don't need to do it all at once. But just seeing all those things I have to do-make me want to stop..and possibly scream.

Trust me..I am thrilled to go find all these things. Actually I'm so excited I could do a little dance! But at the same time with the Holiday season coming up it seems like so much to handle at the moment...

Any suggestions??

Hmm ... start by finalizing your invitation wording, then order the invitations. I recommend doing it in that order, b/c doing it in the opposite order would be silly! Then, get on-line and look at airline prices ... but book through a travel agent (esp. if it's a smaller airline - that way if something happens to the flight, the travel agent will still get you to the honeymoon).

That's where I'd start. Get the big things out of the way. Then worry about the smaller things (like frames for pictures).
