1.  16-15 Months Before: Set a budget

Make time to sit down with your parents, family members, or just the two of you. Figure out who is contributing, how much they can contribute, and what your total budget will be. 


2.  14-13 Months Before: Decide on your wedding’s style

Vintage, modern, classic, eclectic, handmade, rustic… there are so many styles out there! Figuring out a theme or style early on will help you throughout the entire planning process. Don't worry about designing your entire wedding at this point, just know what general look and feel that you are going for.



3.  13-9 Months Before: Select your venue

When you’re researching and find a venue that you like, contact them and ask if they have any of your possible dates available. Note that some venues book their summer weekends up to a year and a half out. If there is a certain date you want, it is never too early to book.
