@kansas_nurse:  October 3, 2014!! We recently started looking at possible venues, and a budget, definitely! We also started buying the mason jars, tea light candles, and random little things as trinkets. Maybe you can get an idea for centerpieces going? Or even save-the-date ideas!

@kansas_nurse:  A wedding planner book sounds like a good idea! I get really confused when I start coming up with all these ideas and I bet it would be great to write them down!

@kansas_nurse:  My advice is to pick your venue first! Your venue will influence literally everything else in your wedding, and many places book quickly so it’s never too soon to put down a deposit somewhere. 

Congratulations and good luck! 🙂

Congrats!!! definitely do the venue first! I also suggest getting the bigger tasks out of the way too – like photo, dj, etc.  Even though the timelines dont suggest getting these things done until x amount of months before hand, my experience was that people book up quickly.  We’re on a tight budget so I was nervous that the good and cheaper vendors would book quickly.  Plus I needed everyone to speak Spanish (FH is Dominican).  It might depened on where you’re located, but I think booking early was the best thing i’ve done for this wedding yet!

@felixfelicis:  This x100000000000.  She is absolutley right!  With October becoming the most popular wedding month in many areas, find your venue and let their availability determine your wedding date.

FI and I set our budget 1st, then began looking at venues, and once we had our venue chosen and the contract signed, then we had our date 😉

And if you are a design-conscious person the look and style of your venue can also influence your floral arrengements and other decor, cake, dress, invitations, etc.
