I’m not sure how fast DJ’s book up since I never looked into it, but photographers definitely do. March isn’t really high season yet, but I’d definitely start making some calls especially if you have really specific things you want (style, packages, etc) or a tight budget.

I would look into it if I were you. I gave my Fiance similar tasks and while he attempts to help, sometimes reminding him constantly to look into it takes more effort than booking the appointments myself.

I would start booking appointments, maybe at times your Fiance is around so he still feels included.  Or meet with vendors, pick the one you like, and then sign the contract with your fiance there so he can meet the vendor at least once.  I’m not sure where you live so I don’t know how quickly things book but we’re March 2012 and our photographer said she is completely booked for March now, our officiant has one weekend left, and we’re the only ones who have booked our DJ for that month. 

Here is how I prioritized the vendors: 1. Venue (which included the caterer) 2. Photographer 3. DJ 4. Officiant 5. Florist 6. Cake 

I put them in the order of how many events they could schedule for one day and therefore get booked quicker.

As far as other things, I have my dress ordered, Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses ordered, invitations ordered, flowers picked out (still have to sign the contract though) and we picked our cake this weekend.  Next on the list will be to pick out groomsmen attire, select our menu, and our table setting.
