@google:  Congratulations! I’m not engaged yet, but I assume feeling overwhelmed or anxious is standard with any new change. So, its okay, just relax. :)As for buying books and stuff, don’t feel like you have to do that right away. The internet will be cheaper for just getting a feel for what you want. I think the normal planning method is guest list, budget, cuts to guest list, venue, then everything else.

Congratulations!

Yes — I do feel overwhelmed just thinking about it. If it were all down to me, I think I’d get the venue down, but I’d probably just have a backyard party. It’s not going to be like that, though. FI tells me our wedding will be bigger than I wanted, and it’s in a different country. Luckily for me, it’s not until 2014, so I’m just casually looking at ideas. I haven’t done any dress shopping or vendor-finding. I’ll save that for next year. When I really think about how I’m going to eventually be planning, it freaks me out, and I wonder if we’ll be able to pull it off! lol

I think the thing that overwhelmed me was when my co-worker asked when is the wedding?  When?  IDK  I just got proposed to for christ sake!    Then she said what color will your girls be wearing?  What?  Then of course I started googling and was completely overwhelmed.  Wedding websites!  What?  OMG yes I was def overwhelmed.  I gave myself a window to enjoy just being engaged and didn’t look at any wedding stuff for awhile until I knew for sure when.  Enjoy this time.  Stay away from pintetest.

Congrats! When I first got engaged, since i knew I had time, I did literally nothing for months. That gave me time to adjust to the state of being engaged and what it meant to us and friends and family. Then I just kind of had the luxury of taking planning steps when I felt like it or had little flashes of ideas, and other times I didn’t have to do anything. You don’t absolutely have to plan everything immediately. Feel it out and do what comes naturally. You have time.
