Does anyone have or know of a website with a GOOD wedding planner timeline, to help keep me organized?
My wedding is 16 months away and I plan on having the Church ceremony and Banquet facility booked by the end of THIS March 2010. The Banquet facility offers a complete wedding package where all I will have to worry about is the:
PHOTOGRAPHER / VIDEOGRAPHER
INVITATIONS / SAVE THE DATES / RSVP
and of course my dress, bridal party dresses and groom and groomsmen tux.
I am unsure as to when I should start looking and booking or buying all of the above & to top it off I have anxiety problems so I LOVE to have everything planned out ALWAYS. !?
any tips?! the less stressful the better!

I don’t know of a website but in my opinion I think the order of booking should go like this- reception venue, then church, if the food is provided then I’d say the DJ is very important, they totally set the tone for the wedding. Following that I’d do the photographer, videographer, florist (then that would take care of the centerpieces). Next would be the STD’s, Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, and invites. The florist and the cake are the last things you really need to focus on because they can book multiple clients on a specific date but I threw the florist in there because it helped me know how things would look in my mind, which then gave me some creative ideas for DIY projects to add to it all. And, the dress, one of the most important parts- I’d suggest getting ideas of what you want to try for a little while before you go shopping and def narrow down and go dress shopping by like 8 months. I mean you could wait a bit longer but I wouldn’t want to worry about it. Not sure if that at all helps but that’s how I did it!

I’m loosely following the checklist on theknot.com, overall I find it to be helpful (plus it gives you a nice count down & a free wedding website). Hope that helps!
