okay so I have our venue booked but nothing else is paid for . were using our tax money to pay for 90 % of everything since we usually get a good amount back this will leave us will just little things to finish to pay for. but I’m really nervous because I WANT to get stuff done but we wont have our money till end of march . do you think I have planty of time to do stuff? is it okay to pick my bridemaids and start looking at dresses?I’m having them do mismatched dresses so we have to look around so I REALLY think we should be looking now

You already have the venue taken care of, that’s half the battle right there. Start picking your bridesmaids and researching dresses – these are things you can get out of the way now. If you’re into DIY, this may be a good time to start a project too. I have a long engagement and I killed time by working on paper flowers. We actually didn’t start booking things until about 7 months into our engagement and it all worked out fine 🙂

That is plenty of time!
Though you might want to start looking for a photog and a dress, so you can book them as soon as you do have the money!

I think you’ll be fine! Do your research and get your ducks in a row so you can spring into action in March 🙂

@jennmc85: I agree with PP, the venue is the biggest thing. I think you have plenty of time. I have essentially planned our March wedding in 5 months. I don’t think you have anything to worry about!
I would start looking for dresses though because if you order them from a bridal shop, it could take a couple months. But you’re on the right track.
You can’t buy things with money you don’t have yet, so don’t panic. Good luck!

@jennmc85: Definitely start looking at dresses, speaking with vendors, etc. You can pick it all out now and start deposits once you get your money in hand. Keep in mind that most places do not require payment in full, including many bridal salons for wedding dresses and Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.
I’m getting married in September and frankly, I’m starting to feel the clock tick quicker myself.
