You go on a vacation because you want to feel relaxed. If the planning stage alone starts to be stressful, there is no point in pushing for it. Yes, there are a lot of details you need to take into consideration for a successful trip. However, it should not reach a point where you feel too stressed out.
To make it easier for you, don’t shoulder the entire responsibilities. If it is a group trip, find someone to help you out. You are all going to this trip so you must not be the only one being stressed in this process. It would be fun if all of you will pull your share to make this trip successful.

For special requests, you must be informed in advance. However, you should make it clear that there is no guarantee everyone’s requests will be granted.
Update everyone about the status of the plan. Make them realize that it is not easy so they won’t keep on complaining. Those who bring up negative vibes must be removed from this trip or else the actual trip could be more stressful than the planning stage.
