First, before you start deleting stuff, make a nand backup of your current ROM (I'm assuming you're still on the stock ROM). That way you have something that you KNOW works when/if something goes wrong.
If you haven't already done this, do it right now, before you do anything else. You WILL mess something up at some point (we all have), you'll be glad to have this backup.

Second, I'd suggest using Titanium to FREEZE the apps you want to delete, then use the phone for a few days to make sure you didn't break anything. If everything is fine then you can go back and delete those apps later.

Third, *I* would simply install a different ROM that is already 'debloated'. Typically there are other tweaks to a ROM that also increase speed and/or battery life. And will include other options that the stock ROM doesn't (the WiFi toggle for instance).
The problem with a debloated ROM is that what some folks call 'bloat' another person thinks is a useful app.

JoeSP has a nice list of apps that are supposedly safe to uninstall listed here
Which Apps to Freeze???

Remember when deleting apps, as always, what you do to your phone is your fault, even if your working off a list that someone else created.
