There are a million things to think about, your phone is blowing up with people congratulating you, and you are feeling the pressure to start checking things off the wedding to do list. Don’t panic! You have plenty of time to get everything done and we are here to help.

Pinterest boards, bridal blogs, wedding dress shopping, finding a photographer, venue hunting…the list could go on forever. It’s typical for an engagement to last around a year or so, but there are certain things you’ll want to get done as soon as possible. So where do you even begin? Don’t stress, we’ve got you covered! First things first, make sure you take a minute to just celebrate and enjoy the fact that you are engaged! After that, it’s time to get down to business and these are our recommendations on where to start the wedding planning process!

1. Figure out guest count and nail down a budget.
First, you’ve got to figure out who you want at your wedding and how much you’re willing to spend before you can start everything else.
2. Find a venue.
Venues book up quick, especially on Saturdays, so make sure you start looking at venues as soon as possible!
3. Caterer.
Food is one of the biggest components of a wedding and you will want plenty of time to find the perfect caterer for your party.
4. Create a vision board to narrow down all your Pinterest inspo!
Getting all of your ideas and wedding day dreams in one place will help everyone involved and will make it easier to bring your vision to life.
5. Dress.
Dresses can take 6+ months just to make, so be sure to give yourself plenty of time to find the perfect look for your big day!
