First off, take a DEEP breath! My biggest sanity saver has been my planner. I have it all organized into like schedules, contracts, etc. There’s lots of links around the internet that will help you organize. 

It sounds like you’re all set with vendors, next up is the creative process. Can you speak with your Maid/Matron of Honor or some friends to have them help you? Set up a Pinterest board and have them all able to pin. Have a day where you sit down and make everything solid and decide what you do/don’t like.

Think of one thing at a time. You CAN’T try to imagine everything all at once, you’ll drive yourself nuts. Write down a list of things that you need, most important going first, then go down the list.

Also, have you thought about stationery? Like programs and such? That’s another important thing you may want to add to your “to do” list.

My mom and I created our own using Microsoft Excel. I LOVE excel. I can have all these spreadsheets in one document. And everything is color coordinated… ahh. Lovely.

I agree with the PP… break things down into different categories, and then just look over all of your stuff and write it down. Organize from there! My mom and I are doing that this upcoming weekend, actually… I think we’re pretty much done gathering all of our decorations but we need to re-evaluate and see!
