    You’re right on track, but I would make sure you start looking into photographers right away if that’s important to you, as well as any vendors that you would deem high on the importance list-I was told a lot of photographers get booked 1 year in advance, and they weren’t joking-we were lucky to get the photographers we have, but at the same time they did such an amazing job with our engagement pictures, I can’t wait to see what they’ll do for the wedding!

    I think you’re doing just fine. You should look into booking your “must haves” (photographer, DJ/Band, Caterer, ect) probably no later than January. As PP mentioned, alot of these vendors are booked a year in advance, sometimes a year and a half!

    I think you are fine, you definitely have time. It doesn’t hurt to start looking especially on the vendors that are most important to you. It also depends on your area, I live in Vermont and there isn’t a ton of options for vendors so I feel the best book up quickly. Our cake lady already has about 15 wedding for the spring and summer of 2013. But if I was planning where I grew up in NJ there would be plenty of vendors and plenty of time.

    I’m the same month and i have my photographer, ceremony/reception booked, dress ordered. Within the next month i want to have the officiant, florist and DJ booked.

    I know my colours/centerpieces/decoration ideas as well. I think the most important is booking the big important stuff!! 

    But you still have time!

    I think the next big thing you need to get is photographer, as the great ones and the great ones who are lower priced go fast!  Other than that, I think you can take your time planning.  There are weddings planned in 4 months, they must do it somehow!

    You have plenty of time but I think its good to get stuff done in advance if you can.  I got most of the stuff done in the first 2-3 months and I’m SO glad now because I don’t feel like doing much.  Seriously- I’m about to send something to the printers and it was so nice just being to open the file I created months ago, double check everything, and send it off.  Its even better knowing I won’t have to schedule any more meetings with vendors until the week-of.

    I’m right where you are. We booked our ceremony, but nothing else concrete yet. (We’re destination eloping though, so it’s going to be pretty low key. We might do a “surprise, we’re married!” cake reception when we get home, but not fully decided yet. 🙂

    • Wedding: March 2013

    Our wedding is in March and I just booked the photographer the day before yesterday. Granted, I know her and have worked with her before so she knew that I wanted to use her for my wedding but I didn’t even get engaged until May. If you’re getting married in August (or October for stacylou), you have plenty of time!
