Wedding Blinders

At this point in my planning, I have a really good sense of the look, theme, and feel of the wedding. All of the vendors have been booked, and I find myself fully focusing on the minor details and attempting to tackle my project list, a list that I am desperately trying to shorten and not expand. With Pinterest,, and the plethora of pretty inspiration blogs out there, I’ve found myself putting on my wedding blinders out of self preservation.

Honestly, I used to love my time spent on those sites, aimlessly pinning and hearting any inspiration or DIY that I thought I could work into our wedding. Now I am fiercely blocking myself from visiting them and searching for anything that might add more tasks to my to-do list. Looking back to where I was even 30-60 days ago, I feel like I am in a completely different place.

Anyone else out there struggling to wear blinders from new inspiration? Or do you love discovering new ideas, even close to the end of your wedding planning?

    Foxy has officially banned me from adding anymore DIY projects to the list, most of which I find on the sites you mentioned. 😉 But.. I still like perusing. Pinterest is really my downfall.. it’s hard to stay away!!
