How did you stay sane during the planning process? For me, the best way to stay sane was setting deadlines throughout the planning process. I worked from one major checklist and every item had a monthly deadline, so I always knew exactly what needed to be done by the end of each month. To steer clear of wedding overload, I dedicated one day of the week for all things wedding. My fiancé got involved and we'd plan while having a picnic or over drinks so that it was something we'd look forward to. And at the end of the day, my best bet was always to just call Mom. Some things never change, right?
