The first major decisions like location and guest list are some of the hardest ones. My fiance went back and forth on what we wanted, and it got very stressful for me. Don’t worry. It does get easier after the basics are taken care of.

Take a deep breath.  Then another.  Repeat for about 15 minutes.

Then start planning a wedding with your fiance that reflects the *reality* of your lives, not the glittery dream wedding thing you may have had going.  For me, once I started nailing down the specifics of what we *needed*, I was able to start incorporating what I/we *wanted*.  But reality should come first. 

Well, breathing should come first.  Breathe.  And again.

When it gets to be too much, just take a week off or so from planning. Emjoy being engaged. When you feel calmer, you can make some rational decisions. I kmow often it’s when I stop thnking about things so much that I gt those lightbulb moments and know what to do.
