@Soon2bmrslacsina: Congratulations!!! Planning will be so fun!!
I had a general idea of how many people would be on our guest list, so I started looking at venues that would be suitable for that number. We found one we loved and put down the deposit. From there, we looked at the other vendors. We booked our photographer first, then flowers and cake. We booked the DJ a couple weeks ago. All that’s left, vendor-wise, is linens (which we are purchasing then re-selling after the wedding) and possibly uplighting.

Congrats! Step 1 should be getting a good idea of your guest list. Doesn’t have to be exact, but you should at least sit down and figure out who you would like to have there. Then, you can use that information to start shopping for venues.

Guest list and venue, for sure! Are you in the Tracy area? We did a pretty extensive look through of the Pleasanton, Livermore, San Ramon areas for our sept 2011 wedding. Ping me if you need any help or advice! Congrats on setting a date!
