I totally freaked out at the beginning too (and often along the way).  This site is amazing, but it can make you feel worse!  It seems like everyone has it together on here, but not all of us did!  I think the beginning was the hardest part, picturing what it would look like.  Booking the venue helped a lot and then picking the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress really solidified everything for me because I had a really strong color totally set in stone. 

My biggest advice; prioritize what you care about and try not to stress about the other things even if you have to spend a little bit more money to keep stress-free.  Case in point.  I did not care about invitations so I didn’t feel like I should spend much on them.  I ended up spending more hours on this than any other single detail and they ended up costing more than they would have if I would have bought the ones I liked online.

Congrats and the proposal and good luck!!

I agree that it’s all overwhelming when you first start.  You can do it, just focus on the important stuff.

As for the honeymoon, maybe you want to wait until after the semester is over?  My husband and I didn’t go right after the wedding and I think I liked it better because the wedding is so stressful that I didn’t really want to do much right afterward.
