As I write this post, I am somewhat panicking, so I am sorry if this becomes one big rant session. Here's the truth: I am terrified and overwhelmed. I am sure people are thinking right now, how can you be overwhelmed? You haven't done anything yet! Well, I find this to be the most overwhelming part. My plan is to take it one step at a time and try not to be stressed, but the hardest part for me isn't the projects and the planning, it's figuring out where to start.
I have no clue where to start. I don't know how to start finding vendors. I don't know everything that I am going to need. I don't know how to budget because I don't know what I will need. I am talking about little things, but the little things matter in my opinion. I don't know how I am supposed to find vendors in my budget. Google tends to yield zero results, I don't know anyone who has gotten married recently, and I don't really know what is available in Connecticut anymore. I have no problem calling tons of places, but I don't know how to find the names of those vendors. I am terrified I won't be able to find people that do a good job while still working within my budget. I know they are out there! How can I find them?
One of the biggest problems is that Connecticut is not a cheap place. It is expensive!! If I get someone not located in CT then it will be the same price because of travel costs. Ugh. If anyone has any advice, I NEED it. Badly. Really bady. Where do you find budget friendly vendors? Any Google technique tips?
