Hi Nelibee,

Well, for starters, I work in a hotel that has beautiful weddings and have worked with brides…I’ve seen brides that have actually quit their jobs to plan their wedding!  I’ve seen brides that need to feel in control of every detail because they either have no support or they just need to feel that control. I’d say ones need for perfection is another aspect. My wedding isn’t until September 2010 but I feel the need to have things now! 

It’s normal for you to want things to be “just right”, it’s your day! There is a lot of pressure to have your wedding day be perfect…most of that pressure comes from us.

I started planning a big wedding and then we decided it wasnt really what we wanted or who we were…(this is my second marriage, his first) I was totalling flipping out daily! It wasn’t very much fun and not what I had thought it would be like…

I know this might be easier said than done but try to enjoy all this planning…it’s your day and it will go by so fast…I always tell our brides just before they walk through those doors to the reception, “relax, enjoy each other and eat your food!”

Good Luck and keep us posted!

It seems that you really only have 2 months to plan: December and March.  Since January and February are going to be busy you need to get stuff done now.  My advice, find something you like, stick with it, don’t mull over it for too long, and move on.  Don’t look back and try to change things. Start getting stuff that you can get done now before January hits.  Ex: looking at the programs.  Pick one you like and start working on them.  Checking things off your list will help you feel less stressed.  good luck.
