Welcome to the Hive!  And congratulations!

Since you asked… a few pointers on where to start the daunting task of planning…

  1. Create a budget.  This will help you determine where to allot money, which venues are in your price range, how many guests you can invite, etc.
  2. Create a tiered guest list.  The first tier is all the necessary invites that you absolutely have to have/really want at your wedding.  The second tier is those that could be cut if necessary (e.g. guests for people that haven’t been dating for X amount of time — I think the usual cut-off is 1-1.5 years if they don’t live together).  The third tier is those that you would invite if your budget allows, after inviting Tier 1 and Tier 2 (e.g.  A friend that you haven’t spoken to in years).
  3. Get out there and find a venue.  Once you have the venue booked you will have a set wedding date.  Then you can book other vendors and everything falls into place. 

But if I were you, I’d take at least a few weeks to just enjoy the engagement.  I mean, how often does a girl get to say she’s engaged?  Live it up!
