@DiemCtoure:  Lol well since FedEx doesn’t deliver patience, the best advice I have is to keep at least 1 day a week WEDDING FREE! Honestly, that helps alot.

There’s only so much you can do a year out, but it sounds like you’re ahead on planning which is great! Take a look at some wedding timeline lists and figure out which tasks need to be done when & make yourself a schedule by month/tasks. Stay organized, and don’t get too caught up in the stress.

Things are going to go wrong, some things will be disappointing, but there will also be surprises when things work out serendipitously! I don’t know if anyone can really plan for the “perfect” wedding day. I think it’s perfect when you’ve planned as best you can, but are also able to roll with the punches, and have a great time with your FI no matter what happens. Planning gets crazier as you go, so make sure you and FI take enough time for yourselves away from it all. “Wedding free date nights” will be much needed, and are nice little reminders to focus on the marriage not the wedding! : )

@VioletSky:  Hang in there! They 1 year mark is a big deal, but at the same time you have SOO much time still! Stay on top of things though, and my best wedding-planning advice is to try to get as much done as soon as you can. I’ve gotten so much done early on, that it seems like the next couple months will be much much easier than they would be had I left things for later. There’s nothing wrong with thinking ahead (why not start envisioning your invitations or favors or whatever else) but also try not to overwhelm yourself, either. 

Hang in there! It will be a rough yet fun road to travel down. Enjoy it! 

 

Also, try not to aim for a “perfect” wedding day. There are just way too many factors that are out of your hands. Instead, try to aim for a “fabulous” wedding day!
