    Maybe take a full month off from planning– no wedding talk, no browsing wedding sites (even the bee!Wink) absolutely nothing wedding related– then come back to it and see if you still feel this way. 

    If so, go elope! 

    If you miss the planning, and want to get back to it– then you’ve got your date set, and you can work on all the rest.

    First, congrats.  Second, I’m a planner so I know how you feel.  I had all the vendors booked within 3-4 months of our engagment (10 months out from the wedding).

    I think the two of you need to sit down and talk about what you want for the big day.  Not necessarily the little details, but who, where and what.  Do you both want a big wedding or small (just family and friends or people you’ve talked once to in a few years)?  Does location matter (local to where you are living, hometown, destination)? 

    We decided on our immediate family and closest friends (we’ve actually seen/spoken to within the year).  We should have between 40-45 people attend.  For us, it is about our day and having the people we wanted there with us.  To me, it isn’t about all the little details, but celebrating this happy occasion with people who care about us. 

    Just remember it is your day (both of you) and do what you both want, not what other people want you to do.
