Just kidding! You will be fine! Like jerseykitten said, picking the resort is the hardest part! The rest is easy!! Just do what makes you & FI happy, don't worry about pleasing everyone! And plan within your means...nothing is more stressful than financial worries!

The rest, I think, should be the fun part, but we'll see.
I've leaned on my friends a lot. My BM and the girl doing my invites, both of whom are married, have helped a lot.
Good luck, deep breaths and a glass of wine helps

But then again, that's me...even when I make a decision, I tend to second-guess myself until enough time has passed that I don't have a choice to change it anymore
I plan on visiting this forum as much as possible to share the burden! People on here are so supportive, it's awesome.

April 2011... you have over a year (good!) I say make a timeline & try to stick to it.
I start planning our wedding about a 1.5 years in advance, and it was plenty of time. I actually ended up taking a 6 month break!
My advice is to get as much as you can done right away, that way you can take your 6 month break right before the wedding. Nothing is more stressful than "crunch time" !
The other big piece of advice I can give you is set deadlines. It is so easy to look for flowers, or jewelry, or whatever for days and days. Give yourself enough time to search and find what you really want. But don't let yourself second guess too much. Try to move onto other tasks and get this wedding cranked out.
Best of luck, and remember to have fun!!
