There’s no right way to do it – I just started with the biggest stuff first (date, venue, church, photographer, videographer, wedding party). Then I spent some time on the dress. Then I took a break :). Then I started with the medium stuff (decor, flowers, ceremony music, bridesmaid dresses, men’s attire). Next on my list will be the smaller stuff (registry, invitations, transportation, hair, make up, etc).


Once you get the biggest stuff out of the way things just kind of follow from there, I found.

I totally agree with SanJessica that there is no right way or wrong way to do it.  We’re getting married on 12/12/14 and got engaged in Feburary.  I’m a planner or maybe a Type A personality so I wanted to get the big things booked early ๐Ÿ™‚

We booked the church, venue, and officiant within 6 weeks of getting engaged.  Since then we’ve booked the DJ, photographer, transportation, and hair and makeup people-only because we have a big wedding party and I will be getting ready in a hotel, so needed travleing people.


In the meanwhile I’ve been looking at dresses, ordering wedding invitations samples-just to get an idea of what I like, brainstorming favors, how I want the cake to look, flowers, and bridesmaids dresses.  I know there are tons of little things that I haven’t even started on yet but I think if you get the big things out of the way its much less stressful and fun!

I’m from PA also but getting married in NJ-where my fiance is from.  Where is your wedding? ๐Ÿ™‚

We had been engaged 5 months now almost 6 and we just booked our venue for our 9/27/14 wedding! It was my biggest concerne and it was such a relief to get it booked. I was going crazy trying to choose a venue! ๐Ÿ™‚ Next on my list is most likely photogrpaher and caterer. We have cake plans, colors, and decor in the works as well.
