    photographer would be my recommendation.... do you need a church? Great for you for being on top of things!

    After we had the ceremony/reception/caterer taken care of, we started working on the photographer and band.  After that we moved on to the florist and ceremony musicians.

    Congrats on finding a venue.  Do you need a caterer, or is the venue taking care of that?  But now is a good time to start looking at a DJ, Photographer and Florist.

    I'm assuming you have a guest list if you have chosen a venue, right? If not, do that next. After choosing a venue, we chose our videog, photog, DJ, and florist.

    Congrats on your big check! I agree with pp's.. the photographer and dj should be next because the most sought after ones book up quick.

    The other girls have pretty much covered already, but hi and congrats! The Knot checklist is helping me stay on track.... Also, after reception venue was booked we then moved on to DJ and photographer after that. (Catering is included in our venue so I didn't need to do anything with that). The other girls are right - those 2 do book up quickly so you don't want to wait too long on music & photography. Next I bought my dress (which I see you already have) and we found our officiant...I am now about to start cake consutlations & florist consulations. Limo will be next. Do you need to look into which hotels to block off for out of town guests?

    I highly rec looking into Jane from Just for you for your florist. I personalyl haven't used her but I've seen her work numerous times with other knotties && I'm kicking myself for not booking her for my own wedding. Her arrangements are beyond beautiful.... I never really noticed the difference in the quailty of flowers until I saw hers. They're soo fresh! && hold up really well. HTH!!
