I’d say you are in pretty darn good shape for the wedding being over a year away. I recommend just enjoying the process, not obsessing over the little details.

Things that are not on your list, but are important:


Save the Dates – if you have people coming from far away, I recommend this.

Invitations – after Save the Dates, obviously

Bridesmaid dresses – it might help to have an idea of what you like.


That’s all I can think of for now! Good luck, and remember, ENJOY the process, don’t let it get to you. I planned my upcoming wedding in less than a year, and tried not to stress out over it.

@AndysCraftsNmore:  I didn’t have to do Save the Date’s but did anyways. I sent to everyone on our guest list, and sent them in March for our September wedding.

Engagement shoot, my Fiance and I did ours in a local park, I wore a dress and wedges, he wore jeans and a button up shirt.

Sounds like you’re in good shape!!!

The 2 big things I don’t see on there is a preliminary guest list and budget!!! Until you have an estimate of how many guests you are inviting it’s hard to pick reception sites, etc. And setting a budget at the begining can help keeps costs manageable.

Other things to work on eventually:

I’d start working on a preliminary schedule for the day of the wedding.

If you’re not going for a traditional religious ceremony – I’d start thinking about the ceremony – depending on the officiant they may have some options to start from.

Bridal party and family gifts. You certainly don’t need to get these now, but I found it helpful to keep it in mind so that over time I could make little mental notes when I thought of something someone might like. For example – I was talking to one of my bridesmaids about baby names and the book Freakenomics came up – she hadn’t read it and I knew she would like it so I made a note to remind myself and that was part of her present!

Decor other than flowers, if you want any. Espeically if you’re planning to DIY – start early!!!

Honeymoon planning!
