    lalalyanne:  Just take a few moments to breathe. Take a week’s break from wedding planning because it is making you go stir crazy. You have just under a year before your wedding is here. It’s okay. Don’t panic and keep the eyes on the prize. We started planning a wedding with just under a year and we are doing just fine. Get a checklist from a website (the Knot, Wedding Wire, whatever) and that will let you know when you should have things completed by. It’s okay.

    You still have plenty of time to get yourself organized! I have a nine month engagement (one month to go) and am balancing a ridiculous work schedule too. I know the stress you must be feeling!

    Honestly, write a list of the top three biggest things that need to be done ASAP. When you get one done, cross it off the list and add a new to-do at the bottom. Don’t worry about the whole wedding all at one. Work at it in bite-size chunks. Focus on one or two pieces at a time. It’ll go much faster and smoother. Believe me.

    There are going to be stressful days. Learn when you’re getting stressed out. Take a break. Walk. Shower. Read. Put whatever wedding-related issue is stressing you out aside. It can wait one day.

    lalalyanne:  I agree with PPs – breathe.  priorotise.  write a list. 

    Seriously, stop wasting time and energy if the thing you’re trying to achieve isn’t THAT important,  nd move onto something that is.  Choose important or “to do right now” jobs and set yourself the task of doing 5 a week.  Breaking things down into more managable bits will make it seem less daunting.  And there are probably LOADS of jobs you can’t actually do 10 months away from your date.  So don’t waste thought on those things.  You’ll be fine!  It will be great 🙂
