    I'd proberlY get the invites and attire sorted now and rings as depending on where u order they can take up to 3months to come in. And maybe look at sorting transport sooner rather than later. I wouldn't start panicking til 3 months before hand although I'm hoping to be done by then. But u haven't got a lot of things left really x

    think bridesmaid dresses and invites are next on my list as you said plan to get them sorted by mid june at absolute latest. as long as i dont end up popping to the supermarket on my wedding day for flowers all will be fine :) xx

    There's no such thing as 'too relaxed'! Me and my oh are the same, we only booked our August wedding last month and so far all we have done is my dress is ordered and the photographer booked (both done this week). So we still have everything else to sort! But now those 2 things are done, I'm not panicking, everything else if fairly easy to sort. It'll all fall into place.

    I would get the bridesmaid dresses sorted next as they can take 3 months to come in to the shop (that then gives you time die alterations). And then flowers and cars, the problem is things get booked up quick so I would do the things that are the most important to you first so you don't get disappointd. Xx

    Ignore them. I've had this a few times where people say "wow, you must be starting to get nervous"... no, actually, I'm not. Why? because I planned and executed everything well and because of that... I'm pretty much my usual self and if anything... getting really excited because I want to see it all come together :D

    I'd put invites on the top of your list!! I think 4 months is the limit on invites, so that way people can let you know wether theyre coming in time to give numbers to your reception.
    Cars, rings and Bridesmaids dresses soon too!
    Cars get booked pretty fast!!
    :-)
    Though if you feel happy and relaxed about the whole thing ignore what people are saying.
    I'm rather relaxed about everything too but I have a while to go yet ;-)

    I'm getting married in about 60 days and so far have only sent day invites out ( last weekend) however evening ones are going this week .

    I would say get outfits sorted due to delays with some suppliers and then of course alterations are needed.

    I think that depends on your individual venue.

    Think it does depend on venue but we are doing RSVP due month before wedding as means time to chase people and also enough time to confirm numbers :)
