I am planning our wedding all alone; however, I do run things by my FI. I do get overwhelmed sometimes, but I love to plan and DIY, so I get over it pretty fast. I am also planning to expand my business to include wedding planning because I love it so much. Anything can get overwhelming at times. You just need to walk away from it sometimes to clear your head and then come back to it with fresh eyes and a fresh perspective.

I did 98% of the planning myself. DH was good at the nod, smile, “yes dear”. It could be overwhelming at times, but I used checklists and timelines to keep things under control. I also tried to do as much as I could as far out as I could. Also, try making two lists: one of “must haves” and one of “like to have”. So for instance, must have invitations, like to have just married banner for the car. As I got closer to the day, I let go of a lot of my “like to have” items and realized I didn’t have time for them. Setting your priorities will help to give you focus.

I am, my fiance is deployed right now so it’s all me!  One of the first decisions we made after we found out about the deployment (a couple weeks after we got engaged) was to hire a wedding planner so I could have some help with the process.  That has been a HUGE help.  As I’m writing this I’m realizing I guess I’m not alone, but I wish he was here to help me and give his opinions.  One of the ways I’m getting him involved is I told him he’s in charge of the honeymoon, so he has a project too.
