We have a tentative date (my parents 30th anniversary! With their blessing and encouragement), selected a venue (need to work with them to finalize dates), filled out most our guest list, know what we are doing for save the dates. Also, my parents decided to pay for the entire wedding, minus the photographer (maybe?)
I also made healthy choices for food! I’m going to replace sodas with black coffee and am tracking everything I eat.
How far out do we need to order dresses?
How close to the wedding is our final fitting?
When do the guys get measured for tuxes? Or is it better to get a suit?
We are going to order my ring tomorrow and look for him.

@blueEyes90: if your date is in 2018, I would wait at least till 2016 to even be thinking of all
of this. You cam order a dress anywhere from 5 month before to now before, as long as you have a place to store it. But honestly you have so much time, ordering a dress this early is not practical. Your size and taste will change in 4 years.
tuxes and stuff dont worry about until 3-5 months before. Again anything earlier is not pratical. Congrats on your engagement.

@blueEyes90: lol! Much better! start looking as soon as possible for your dress . Usually the final fitting is 1-2 weeks before the wedding. Tuxes you can start looking at in the summer and order no later than October.
