    Well we found our church and venue before setting a date.  We knew we wanted those two places and were going to then choose a date based on when they were both available.

    But after selecting a mutaully available date, we immeadiatly booked the church and the reception hall (which also meant we’d booked the officiant and the caterer).  Yay for killing 4 birds with one stone!

    Venue for us. We had a time of year in mind (Fall 2011) but not a set date. When we met with our venue, we chose a date based on their availability. We’re getting married at my dream venue so as long as our wedding fell in Fall 2011, the specific date didn’t really matter.

    We only decided “summer 2011” as far as date goes.  Then we searched for venues and once we settled on one, decided on an exact date based on availability and a few other factors. After that, photography and entertainment followed.

    Colors. I’ve known my colors for years now, as pink is my favorite color.

    I’m a little confused. The title of the post is “What did you plan first for your wedding?”, but the poll is for “What did you plan second?”.

    OP is not taking poll of the “first”, but taking poll of the “second”?

    I also picked the venue first. We wanted to get married in the warm months either in 2011 or 2012. We let what was available dictate our date.

    After that I focused on a photographer.

    Actually, I planned the venue first, the date second- around when I could get the venue I wanted.

    The absolute first things we did after we got engaged was start our guest list and figure out our budget. Those two variables dictated absolutely everything else.

    I am slightly ashamed to admit that I put the deposit down on my dress before we picked our venue and officiant Embarassed

    @In the media: oooh. We picked the venue first and then the date base on the availability of the venue. Hence, the confusion.
