DJ can wait. I’d get your photographer booked now, lest the one you liked be booked up, but otherwise, you don’t have to be doing anything right now. Heck, if you want to elope, elope! But if you don’t want to elope, check out J.Crew’s and Nicole Miller’s wedding dresses — not a pouf in sight.

Also, are there any other Greek traditions you want to fit into the wedding? Maybe talk to his family about their weddings, talk to your family about theirs and figure out which traditions you want to include in your wedding?

Or just take a break for a while. You’re engaged and your fiance isn’t going anywhere. Make a vow that you won’t mention the word "wedding" for a month, and go do other fun things. Set a deadline for getting back into the wedding planning swing of things again, but in the meantime, perhaps you could sign up for something you’d like to do but won’t have time for once wedding planning starts in earnest? Rock climbing lessons? Skydiving? Cooking lessons? Walking in a forest? Improving your exercise routine? Changing your hairstyle? Is there anything your fiance wants to do before he gets married? The wedding process is not always fun, but the pre-planning process can be.

You should be picking out your photographer right now, IMO. Some of the really good ones book up to a year or more in advance.

Keep an eye out for photographers, since you’re getting married in peak wedding season, but definitely take a break on everything else. 

For dresses, check out some online galleries for more sheath dresses, or modified A-line.  I felt silly in all the pouffy ballgowns and big A-lines, but felt gorgeous in narrower skirts, with more flowing fabric.  I fell in love with soft, unstructured lace dresses and flowy skirts made out of embroidered tulle– the structured satin dress look is just not "me."

And you know what?  You *could* just elope, if you’re not feeling like you want the big wedding– sounds like you’d lose some deposits, but if a big wedding is not what you want, then why go through with it?  Do things your way!  🙂
