Lol you’re not alone.  Not only do I make wedding comments immediately after waking up from a nap, I dream about them too.  I think what has helped me is to take a small break, regroup, and come back to the planning armed with a serious list.  First off, your date is in October, which isn’t high wedding season.  This means you have more time than the average summer bride to book vendors, and you may even get a discount off of their peak season prices.  Secondly, start with some major items first – venue, dress, colors, and things will realllly start to get easier from there.  Each detail that you figure out means that the next detail has a larger framework to fit into.  And if lists work for you (which they definitely do for me), it becomes really easy to see that you’re on track.  Do you use http://www.theknot.com?  One really handy feature on there is their checklist function.  It breaks down how much stuff you need to do each month based on how far away your wedding is.  And it breaks each item down into multiple steps, so you can kind of wrap your mind around everything that’s involved.  You can add your own items to the lsit as you think of them, and you can even edit their items (like move them to different months, remove them if you don’t need them, etc).  That list really helped me a lot to not feel overwhelmed.  And don’t forget to enjoy it!  For me, the first couple months felt like serious work, but now I’m at a point where it’s actually fun.  And the weddingbee is a great resource – everyone is so nice – just post some questions if you have any!  Good luck!
