@MrzAfrikana2B:  This times a thousand. I actually never dreamed of my wedding day- in fact I always planned on never getting married (two messily divorced parents)/ That being said I feel so crazy overwhealmed for picking a date less than a year away from my engagement that I feel frozen : /

Amen to this, lady! 

Wishing all of you peace in your hearts – even though it is super stressful, at least at the end of the planning we’ll all be married to our wonderful husbands .

Just take it one step at a time, and it all falls into place. Start with budget. Pick the thing you care about the most, and designate the most money toward it. Then budget for everything else accordingly. I’d say settle on a guest list, then find the venue asap. You have to make sure that date is yours before you start booking with other vendors. Take deep breaths. It will all work out!

I was super overwhelmed to begin with, but if you focus on only one thing [and complete it before moving on to the next] it makes it a lot easier. Don’t think of how much you have left to do. Focus on what you’ve already done. Like, once you get the venue, congratulate yourself. Don’t stress about how you still have to find food, a photographer, etc. It will all fall into place.

I had no idea how I was going to work everything out, and now, six months after we got engaged, we have: our two venues, our photographer, our band, the rental company for our tables/chairs, and we’re about to settle on a caterer. You can do it ladies!!
