sarah2245 :  Yay! Celebrate, obviously ๐Ÿ™‚

You’re already sorting the Registrar, which is fab. Get booked in to give notice ASAP if you’re a UK Bee ๐Ÿ™‚

Then start looking at:

– Dress

– Photography/Videography (this books up fast!)

– BM/Groomsmen outfits

– Cake

– Suit for OH

– Save the Dates (if you’re bothering. I wouldn’t as it’s only 6 months)

– Invitations

– Entertainment


Oh, there’s probably a million more things! Does your venue do a Wedding Fayre? Ours did and it was SO HELPFUL. We got loads booked there ๐Ÿ™‚

Congrats! I was engaged for 2 years when I set a date also so I remember how surreal it was. I would say to book the photographer next. That, combined with the venue costs, will really help you get an idea of the overall budget. Depending on the type of dress then I would say to do that soon since many take 6-8 months. If you’re sending save the dates, then that would need to happen within the next month or so.

I always think its best to start with a budget.  April is not far away so you should definitely start looking at dresses immediately.  Many dresses can take 6 months to be made and then you need time for alterations.  Also start compiling your guest list, researching vendors and consider invitations you will use.

Have you locked down your venue(s)?  It’s important that they are in sync with the wedding date you have chosen.
