I think I can relate a little.  My Fiance recently relocated to Saint Louis from Denver and has been wanting to take time to house hunt in the middle of wedding planning.  I managed two weeks before I told him I thought my brain was going to explode if I seriously had to deal with that on top of wedding planning.

Presumably one of the benefits of being married is that you don’t have to make big life decisions alone.  Your Fiance can hopefully be a sounding board and a partner in helping you make this big decision.

Is there any way the school decision can wait until after your wedding?  If you can delay it, great and then don’t worry about it until you have to worry about it.

If it can’t wait until after the wedding, if I were you I’d want the decision made ASAP.  I’d take a weekend with the Fiance, visit both the schools, look at other quality of life factors, sit down, make a list, and make a decision you can both be happy with.  Then move on!  Yes, it’s a big decision but there will be pros and cons either way, and it’s not the last big decision you’ll make as a couple.  Try and put it in perspective!

If you’re a praying person, or even if you’re not, prayer can help, too.

whenever i got anxious that the wedding was getting closer, it always helped to stop planning for a little bit. not thinking about the wedding seems to help!

I drink this stuff called “natural calm”.  You can get it at whole foods or on drugstore.com.  Seriously…it works.  Will help you sleep better at night too.

Valium is another viable option.

I have an amazing fiance who has to remind me occasionally when I am getting too worked up over the details.  We’re getting married and at the end of the day, I’ll be a wife for much longer than the one day I’ll be a bride.  Hugs, kisses, and yummy food don’t hurt either 😉

I think it’s important to give yourself some Not Wedding Related time and hobbies to relieve your stress.

 Hey date twin! I am just keeping myself as busy as possible. Ive noticed that whenever I sit at home alone and just think about it I go crazy! Take loongg hot showers a night and try to still do the things I normally do that arnt “wedding” related. I also like watching movies that have nothing to do with weddings. I have actually told my Fiance I hope this is my ONLY wedding because I dont think I will survive all the anticipation the next time around! lol

Excersize helps me alot. I gym it about three times a week but I go to clear my mind… it definately works.
