I posted this in the Beehive, but I thought maybe I should repost it somewheree else so that I can get more responses…
Okay…Im not a wedding planner so I have no clue what to do now. We have a date set…a deposit on the venue. I already have my dress. My bridesmaids have their dresses and shoes.
I feel like I could be doing more right now even though its a year away. Im the type of person who likes to stay busy. I would rather do little chunks at a time instead of waiting and having SO MUCH to do at once. It keeps me less stressed that way. What should (or could) I be doing now?

Things to think about (just throwing random ideas out there):
Guestbook options – classic signature only, thumbprint trees, mad libs, scrapbook style, yearbook style, video, photobooth etc
Programs – simple, fun, books, etc
Bridal party gifts
gift for your groom
picture poses you want to have
hair piece for wedding day – veil, feathers, flower, bird cage veil etc
aisle runner – having one, decorateing the edges?
monograms – for cards, for programs, guest book, dance floor sticker
wedding music – ceremony (procesional, recesional, unity ceremony), first dane, parents dances, anniversary dance, bridal party dance, garter toss, bouquet toss, dollar dance

Get your vendors lined up!
This is the order I would suggest: photog, caterer, rentals (china, linens, chairs, tables, etc), florist, musicians/DJ, officiant, cake bakery, makeup and hair, hotel room blocks.

Start searching for vendors…that is going to take up most of your time.

Another option that the Fiance and I will be starting shortly is addressing invitations. We have a guest list of roughly 275, so we figured if we started now we could address a few a day and it won’t be as tedious as waiting until shortly before they go out.
