June 2011 is doable if you aren’t set on any one location/date.

Congratulations!!!

 

Yes, it can definitely be done in less than a year. I have a friend who got engaged in June and is getting MARRIED at the end of November. You have plenty of time :o)

 

You’ve got the basics covered. Your third thing is definitely one of the most important: figure out a guest list before you go venue shopping. A lot of venues have limits on the number of people.

Other thoughts: register on theknot.com. They’ve got a great checklist of stuff to do and suggested timeframes for each task. :o)

pick the venue first, otherwise what if you pick a date first and then realize that he venue you love isn’t available on that date?

The order you should pick (or at least this is what we did and it worked out well)

1.Venue

2.Date

3.Planner/coordinator (if you are having one)

4.Caterer

5. Photog

6.Florist

7.Cake baker

8.DJ

then you get into all the detail renting and stuff like linens, hair, makeup, etc. .

Step one is to relax and enjoy it! Seriously! It will go by so quickly, especially when you are in the thick of planning.

Step two is find a venue, then set a date, and let if flow from there.

If you need to set a budget you can do that as well. Although Fiance and I never set a budget and we are doing great. Out budget philosophy was basically get the best price on everything and decide on a case by case basis what is worth spending a little more on.

i’m having a long engagement (we’ve pushed the date back 3 times!) mostly b/c we are planning out of state and the extra time is already paying off! relax and enjoy planning 🙂
