Start by running the Upgrade Advisor against your current databases and resolve any recommendations it makes regarding compatibility. Since you are moving from Enterprise Edition to Standard Edition you'll also want to make sure you are not using any Enterprise-only features that may cease to function when you migrate.

My preference is to install a new instance so that in the event the migration goes poorly and we do not proceed on the new instance, we simply bring operations back online on the pre-existing instance.

+1 to all of that.

Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
