    Figure out  your guest list! That will determine a lot as far as food and catering.

    Oh and congratulations and welcome!

    Agreed on the guest list - and then you will need a venue that can seat everyone within your budget, on your date.  Once you have that you can start on some of the other important vendors like photograper, DJ, florist.  They can book up to a year in advance or more sometimes if very popular.

    Definitely budget (be liberal here... if you want to plan on spending around $10,000 make your budget for $8000 that way when things come up last minute- and they will, it won't break your budget), guest list, and venue right away! Depending on your date, you'll also need to start dress shopping for yourself and your bridesmaids because some places take up to 6 months to get your dress in. Good luck and congrats!!

    Congrats! I just got engaged this month as well! Eventhough my fiance and I are planning a wedding 1 year away, we've already determined our budget, prospective dates, a rough guest list, and we are viewing a few venues this weekend.  I was concerned about making a wedding planner my first priority, but as we started looking at venues we realized that several sites and churches have event planners or coordinators that work with you through your event.

    Happy Planning!
