The Ticking Clock

So, I just realized that we are inching near the 6 month mark, my how time flies!!! I think my list of to-dos just keeps getting longer and longer as my timeline gets shorter and shorter. Here's a quick run down of what needs to be done:

Ceremony:
**um, this area needs a lot work because, er, we haven't really planned anything for our ceremony yet.... the only big items we can cross off our list is that we have booked the church, pianist, and pastor.

Reception:
** Complete indoor table centerpieces, decide on method of trasporting them
** Complete outdoor centerpeces
** Place order for table sashes
** Decide on napkins
** Finalize catering/alcohol
** Select a generalized list of songs for DJ
** Book cocktail hour music
** Decide on decor for foyar and cake table
** Bathroom baskets
** Sign in book?
** Order favors, decide on packaging method
** Decide on seating cards/table numbers

Us:
** Finalize guys' attire, get fitted
** Book hair, makeup
** Dress alterations
** Look for hair/makeup style
** Decide on accessories for day-of
** Shop for rings
** Make arrangements for alterations

Bridal Party:
** Bouquets & Bouts
** BP Gifts
** Decide on jr. bridesmaids, flower children, ushers

Invitations:
** Finalize the guest list already!
** Finalize day-of timeline & order invitations
** Buy stamps before the post office jacks up the price again

Rehersal:
** Finalize RD location & book it
** Gifts for parents

Now practice the following: Take long deep breaths....don't panic... if panic ensues, remind self that is still time left to complete all necessary tasks and that nights of insomnia are common for brides suffering from wedding anxiety.

Any one else starting to panic over their timeline?
