You should start looking at dresses, figuring out your wedding party, decide if you want a wedding planner to work with or a DOC.

I never really liked any of the planners/books out there.  You can definitely start looking at dresses, DJ’s, florists, photographer, bakery for the cake, asking your wedding party, plus details etc.  Check out the knot’s checklists or Real Simple.  Lots of places that tell you where to begin 🙂 GL planning!

Have you written your guest list? Started looking at the types of dresses you like?

As a person who has had 4 or 5 wedding binders/folders/boxes, I’m probably not the person to answer this. LOL Currently I’m using a binder from Office Max filled with page protectors for my pictures. I just started my planning though, so I didn’t have any need for a place to store contracts. I’m actually signing my first one today! 🙂 Now that I need more organization and places to store things, I’ve ordered a Russel and Hazel wedding organizer. One of the Bees just wrote about their binders and she loves hers. Mine comes today, so I’ll let you know! 🙂

if you’re looking for a guide as to what to do / when, i’m using the knot’s timeline and that’s helped me get things done on a timely basis (or skip ahead if something strikes my fancy!)

Also, Russel and Hazel has free worksheets you can download and use in your own notebook.

The Mindy Weis wedding planner book is really pretty and has gotten a lot of great reviews. I coveted it myself but was already too deep into my planning to make it worthwhile.
