    I chose mine about 4 months out. I decided to make my own, so I needed a little bit of time to get everything together.

    I had an idea of what I wanted six months out, and picked my containers a couple months before, but since I bought from a wholesaler and DIY’d the exact flowers I was able to get were actually decided a couple days before.

    I always knew we would go all flowers for the centerpieces. I knew which arrangements I’d wanted for a while, but I confirmed it with my florist about a month out from the wedding. That’s when we picked which specific flowers she’d be using too.

    I agree with Sapphire that I had an idea of what I wanted a few months out, but really I didn’t 100% decide until a few days before actually. We had all the elements but I used them in different ways.

    I thought that I knew what I wanted but lately I have been changing my mind, seems like as soon as I hit the six month to go mark I am second guessing everything.

    About 6 months ago, so approx 10 months before the wedding.

    We’re not having any centerpieces. Since we are getting married in a lovely garden and having a pig roast afterwards, I see no need.

    I’ve been planning mine since we determined a general theme a month or so after being engaged…  so 10 or so months before.

    @Bellagiobride:  I have a general idea on how I want things to look like, but I still need to consult with florists for visual purposes.

    I have been planning (and been stuck) on our centerpieces for probably the last 5 months (We only planned our wedding in 6 months) so I have a feeling that they will keep changing up until the last few days:)

    We just recently decided and we are getting married in August. So, about 6 months. There is still a little tweaking to be done though

    I put a bit of thought into it because I went the DIY route, but I didn’t know for sure until the day before the wedding! I had all my vases and knew what flowers I had ordered about 6 weeks out, but I only saw it all come together the day before… but luckily they ended up okay! (Even though we somehow forgot to put water in a few of the vases and they started wilting… but we saved them just in time, phew!)
