Okay so I’m not completely freaking out but all the ideas are overwhelming me. My family is helping which is great but right now I just want to be with my fiance. Wish I could afford a planner just because I stress out easily. I mean I have lots of visions and ideas and they’re pretty simple to do. But trying to think of who to invite, getting my dress fixed, waiting to hear about my venue. I know When the day comes it’ll be beautiful. I guess I just want everything to work out perfectly which is funny. It’s not going to be huge or extravagant. ButI feel like my head is spinning trying to think of everything. Any advice on how to just relax more while oplanning without my fiance here?

Have you set a date already? Do you have a “checklist”? They can be found on theknot, martha stewart, etc. Once we had reserved the venues and picked a date, I felt MUCH better. Those are the big things. But we also didn’t start planning for about 6 months, we just hung around and enjoyed being engaged which I think was great.

I like having a task list! Give yourself just ONE task a week (you have a while!) maybe your first one can be to research venues!
This way- you don’t overwhelm yourself. I find that when I think of too many things at once- I get most stressed out 🙁

I agree have a tast list and do one at a time. Recognize you may not do everything on your list, the litttle small details and it will be ok.. at the end of the day, nobody really cares how many candles you had, for if there was one extra flower. Also, don’t be afraid to take a breather… sometimes you need to have a few days where you DON’T talk about anything related to your wedding, it can easily consume your life…
Enjoy the process
