Hi all! I’m completely new to the WeddingBee…I’m getting so anxious about getting things started for my wedding but we have a year left and all our down payments are made. I want to start doing my DIY projects but don’t want to start too early. How do you all pass your time???

Welcome Janana! I think you’ll find that most people here will tell you that it is never too early to start on projects, though it is good to have a fairly cohesive idea of color, mood and style before you jump in.
Have you made an inspiration board yet?
I’m looking forward to getting to know you better 🙂

By reading Weddingbee, of course.
There are lots of great sites out there if you need inspiration so I spend some (OK, alot) of time looking at different sites – weddingbee the most though.
I say – enjoy being engaged. Focus on the soon-to-be-marriage and not just the wedding. Enjoy looking at things you might not otherwise pay attention to – flowers, fancy dresses, photographers etc.
Most of all, just have fun and enjoy the process!
Welcome and congratulations!!

I thought I had all the time in the world when I got engaged back in April of 08, and now with a little over 2 months away I’m freaking. I say if you can DIY – and you really know what you want – there is no time like the present!

I know what I want in the wedding and know what I want to do, its allocating money to do so.

Welcome! When I first got engaged, the first thing I focused on was finding as many wedding related pictures as I could online that represented what I wanted our wedding to feel like. I’ve only been engaged since February so I’ve been working on projects since day once because we knew we wanted to be married by the end of 2009.
If you are sure of what you want-go for it. It’s never too soon to get started.

I would start by making some great inspiration boards and gathering your wedding vision into one place. You can get an example of inspiration boards at snippetandink.com and a good place where you can make one of your own is polyvore.com

Welcome! I’d echo the recommendations to start things early! We nailed down the vendors, but didn’t do a lot of the details ’til much later in the engagement. I also spent a LOT of time gathering ideas and inspiration…so have fun with that, as well!

Welcome Janana! I think it’s always a good time to get started on DIY projects. From my experience, the earlier you can get things done, the better! I only wish I had found Weddingbee sooner in my planning process.
