So I recently got engaged- yay! (: We live in CA and both of our family/friends live in NY (where we are from). We'll be going home in June for about a week for our engagement party and to start looking at places. I am just worried that a week won't be enough time to even make a dent in the planning.
We are hoping to have a spring (late April-June) 2012 wedding but aren't super committed to that if we were to get a really great price on somewhere we loved another month.
My ultimate question is what would everyone recommend we take care of right away and what can wait/can be left to our families to look into? We have a few venues that we plan on visiting so that is our main goal. Other than that - if anyone has recommendations for things like photographers, hair/makeup, djs, limos, etc that would be super helpful! We are on a budget for sure so I'd like to keep things inexpensive without sacrificing quality.
Thanks in advance!
