Congrats! I’m in Chicago as well so if you have questions on wedding vendors in the area, send me a private message and I’d be glad to help!

We got engaged July last year and are getting married July of this year, so a year-long engagement. With you having more time, you can definitely do things at a slower pace. This is our order of planning:

1. Venue and Church

2. Dress

3. Bridal Party

4. DJ

5. Photographer

6. Bridesmaid Dresses

7. Wedding Rings


Those are all of the big ones we have so far. With about 6.5 months until the wedding, we are planning our honeymoon right now. I still have to do my food/cake tasting at my venue and figure out my invites and decor.


Good luck and please post ring pictures! 🙂

We got our venue

Photographer (because they book out quickly)

Caterer (same reason as above)

We didn’t need to look for a DJ or Florist or that would’ve been next (same reason as above)


Bridal Party

If you are DIY anything I would start that list as soon as you have your venue, florist, & caterer (pretty much when you know what “look” you’re going for)

Your wedding coordinator should be able to help you with all this too. Congrats =)
