My best friend got engaged for her today and as her maid of honor I will also be mainly planning her wedding, so where do I start? What should we do first? The wedding will be in about a year, where did you start when you first got engaged?

I hear finding a venue is a good place to start. also making a guest list is an important thing to do 🙂

I’d start by going to lunch or dinner with her and open a dialogue about what she specifically wants you to do, whether she wants you to do the actual planning or whether she’d just like you along with her when she is planning. Get her ideas on the types of things she wants or doesn’t want, what sort of theme is she going for, etc. Basically just a big talk-fest about what she’s wants for her big day.
As for actual planning, picking a date and getting the ceremony and reception venue(s) are the very first things that need to be done. After that, the rest sort of follows in line, caterer, photographer, DJ, then dresses, etc. Looking at checklists really help to know where she should be in her planning depending on how many months away it is.
