futuremrstx:  The first and foremost decision to make is “What is your budget”?

futuremrstx:  I agree with PP! First you need to decide a budget and then work from there. I found downloading an app (or in my case a few lol) helped a ton. Wedding bee actually has one ๐Ÿ™‚ they help u create a guest list and have checklists on them (usually with “deadlines” on when to get stuff done ๐Ÿ™‚ 

First thing I did was find a dress and pick a few venues I liked. Since the dress can take a while (like 4 months to come in and then alterations) and venues usually book up pretty quick, these were the two things I wanted to get locked down right away ๐Ÿ™‚ 

After that, I worked on all the other “majors” like finding a bakery, officiant, hair and makeup artist, dj, florist, etc 

That’s just what worked for me but I hope that helps!! Congrats!

futuremrstx:  Budget and time of year you see your wedding is a great start. Once you have that, you can begin figuring out the type of venue that works best for both. I would recommend talking with your fiance and deciding the type of wedding you want (large, small, indoor, outdoor, season, etc.) and get the big picture ideas completed. Details can come after you have these things figured out.

I found several helpful checklists online that gave a very good guideline for what to do when. It’s helpful because some of the lists have suggestions I didn’t even think of. Plus it’s helpful to have a suggested timeline for when to do what. It’s not all set in stone, of course you can make your own timeline of what works for you, but its a great start and it may help point you in the right direction. Plus these lists make you feel a little less stress as you get to cross things off the list. ๐Ÿ™‚
