Congratulations and welcome to the bee 🙂

I started planning 2 years out, and I am glad I did. I did a bunch of DIY stuff, and now I am almost done, so I will be able to relax in the couple of months left to our wedding. In my opinion, once you have your vision, it is never too early to start planning. You will also find you can lock in prices with your vendors when you book early. Prices almost always go up with each new year.

I would start by setting a budget and by picking a couple of dates, and then look for your venue. Once you have your venue, you can start looking for your gown. Project Wedding has a ton of good planning tools. They have a budget calculator that you can plug in the amount you want to spend and then you can modify it as needed. I also suggest making a tentative guest list, a vendor list, and a DIY list. That way you can check things off and add or delete as you go.

Congratulations!! We knew we didn’t want a real long engagement.  So once we were engaged I made him sit down with me and pick a date.  Once we locked that in we began looking and scoping out venues.  The only thing I would warn you about is picking out a dress TOO soon…you might end up getting major dress regret – I wouldn’t get a dress any earlier than a year from your wedding date, but that’s just my opinion. Also, I changed my mind a ton of times regarding decor and colors…so before you do start on DIY decorations, etc., be sure the colors you pick are FOR SURE the colors you want.  Just a few helpful tips 🙂

Have fun planning!

Welcome, congrats and happy planning!

As per usual, noritake22 has excellent advice! I agree that it is not too early to make some headway.  I would work on the big items first; date, venue, ceremony location etc.  Enjoy this time!
