@PurpleLonghorn:  Thank you so much for posting this. As I read through your tips, I was making mental notes to get started working on this, or remind Fiance about that. Just quickly reading over your tips helped so much! I have been trying to stay on top of everything, and am glad you reminded me to keep working on little details (table numbers, etc) now instead of waiting. I know I’m going to need them, so why not get them out of the way?! 

Thanks for posting this, and congratulations on getting married!! Looking forward to seeing your pictures!

Great advice!  I would add one more bullet though:

 

BEFORE you get into the thick of wedding planning, make a list of “must haves,” “wants,” and “if we can afford it, it would be nice” with your Fiance.  As you get deeper into wedding planning, you will be bombarded by the wedding industry and pressured into renting/buying things that you don’t really want or need.  This will just get worse as it gets closer it gets closer to your big day and your stress levels increase.  Just go back to that list you made (I kept ours in the front of my planning book) before making unecessary (and potentially expensive) decisions!

Thank you! I was just thinking today that I was very comfortable thinking I had almost two years to plan and it hit me today that I have 1.5 yr left and have NOTHING, only ideas. Very helpful.

Super helpful! Especially love the tip about not getting lazy! I totally got lazy and didn’t realize until last week. Also agree 100% on making friends with other brides at your venue! I ask disneyland brides so many questions- it’s super helpful to get a brides perspective- it can be wildly different than what your planner will tell you.
