My suggestion would be to take that break.. Wedding planning can get super stressful but if you take it in stride you can make it.!  I give myself at least one night a week to do other things besides planning or projects to relax and refresh.

I’m more and more pissed off about people’s drama and attitudes toward our wedding.

I feel this SO HARD.  It all seems so petty and small and stupid, like people are CHOOSING to get this upset over freaking table decorations, just to make you miserable.  Only thing that’s helped me, is to try and remember, at least in THEIR minds, they’re trying to help.  They care so much about this day for you, that they’re willing to fight tooth and nail for things to come out “right.”  Should they be able to step outside their own puny little minds, consider that what you want/can have is a little different than their expectations, but that’s okay and they should support you anyways?  Sure.  But I can count – on one hand – the adults I know who have that sort of self-awareness.  Best of luck, we’re all going to need it…

Why don’t you quit planning?  I’d quit for a month or two if I were you!  You’re so far out I don’t think you NEED to be planning much at this point (other than the venue and maybe photog) unless you’re in a really high-demand area.  What all are you doing?

Do you have all the important/time-sensitive parts of the wedding arranged?  That would be: venue set with date/deposit, photography/videography, DJ/music, your dress?  If you have all these taken care of right now, and your wedding is more than a year away, then I think you should definitely take a break from planning.  Get off WB/Pinterest/Etsy and plan a little trip with your fiance.  No wedding talk allowed.  This is really important to your sanity and to your relationship with your future hubby. 

All the drama with other people will work itself out eventually. Wedding parties change, friendships and relationships with relatives change, and you will never be able to make absolutely everyone happy while staying completely in budget, but that’s ok!
