I'm getting married in May and feel like there is so much to do and nothing...

I'm getting married in May and feel like there is so much to do and nothing is quite ready! Is anyone else in the same boat? Trying not to panic but feel like I'm running out of time

I’m getting married in May. My dress isn’t ready, my bridesmaids dresses haven’t arrived and not sure they’ll all fit, haven’t confirmed menu options with the venue yet and ppl aren’t rsvping. I’m feeling pretty stressed too but I keep being reminded it’ll all slip into place so trying not to worry too much. Good luck with yours x

Don't get married until July but feel like I've got nothing sorted. But from other brides I've known most people feel this way and it all works out.

I feel exactly the same. I'm getting married next month 🙈 feel like there's still so much to do 😭 you're not the only one. I think it's completely normal to think like that but hopefully everything will go to plan 😊 xxx

If you're panicking I would write a list of EVERYTHING that needs doing. Even something as small as an email. And I'd cross off and add to it as the days went on. Your bridesmaids will be happy to help you I'm sure. Take each day as it comes and feel the satisfaction of crossing stuff off your list :)

I am getting married at the beginning of May and it has started to get a bit stressful now but trying to keep my to do lists up to date which keeps me sane??

Try relaxing and enjoy the process. It’s one day and will go so quick I’m trying to enjoy the organising too. Make a list, I bet you’ll be surprised what you’ve organised already. It’ll all come together and try not to worry, enjoy it xxx and congratulations x

I'm 11th May and I'm feeling really relaxed about it all, probably up until the last week though. All the major things have been done, just a few things to tick off the list ( I had a lot of lists 😂) just take it one step at a time and enjoy it I'm sure it will all come together by your big day. X

Getting married 19th may and felt like I had everything under control until my photographer who had included hair and makeup cancelled on us today 😂🙈

I’m the same. Getting married on 4th May and feel like there’s still so much to organise, pay for and do. Glad I’m not the only one panicking lol 😁

I get married end of May and my biggest panic is not having started shopping for honeymoon clothes yet because I still want to lose another stone, but then when do I start clothes shopping since I already only have 4 months til the wedding 😂😂 x

I’m getting married in 5 weeks and it is stressful but you can only do what you can do. I’ve never been to a wedding a thought ‘oh they forgot...’ so although it’s stressful and times running out, does it completely matter? It will all happen so go with it x

You'll be fine, stay calm and positive. Right a to do list of what's left and work through it bit by bit - it'll come together before you know it :-)
I had 6 months from start to finish to plan and book everything, and to my surprise all was done, booked and arranged with 3 months spare! I forgot a few things here and there but none of the guests noticed and to be honest neither did my husband and I - We were too busy enjoying our day :-)
Enjoy this planning stage because your big day will be here before you know it and the time just disappears on your wedding day!
Enjoy every moment, happy planning and Good luck X

Mine is 2 weeks (saturday) away. Ive said all along that if something doesnt get done we dont have it and if we cant afford something then thats ok too. As long as we are there and the registrar is there then it really doesnt matter if you have forgotten anything. People wont notice if 1 or 2 small things are not there.

Sarah Sharpe
Sarah Sharpe 7 Feb 2018

2 weeks and 2 days! But I can see the end now. A week ago I was tearing my hair out! Just start working through things one a time, tick it off. Don't try and do everything at once. Good luck! Xxx

Also getting married in May feel like everything is falling into place aside from the damn table plan as mother in law to be won't sit by one son and family but doesn't want to be on top table and won't sit by my sister's and wants to change it all...just keep reminding myself if I kill her I don't get to wear my dress except maybe for a prison beauty show

I'm getting married in may too, my logical side is saying all is fine and booked etc, then there's this panic about being prepared and organised 😂 this wedding malarkey is stressful!!!
