Well i have done all my planning. I have picked everything from flowers to my dress. Now its deposit time. And getting the groom and his party on track. I also have to get my party on track so yeah "crunch time"
I'm getting married this August and all I have is the venue. I'm talking to an officiant and plan to meet with her this month. I still need to make our reservation for the reception and check if the photographer we always use is free on our day. You have all that big stuff done?
You shouldn't have a party yet it's too soon you have plenty of time and friendships Change , and prices will go up so if you budget 5000 for the flowers add about 10 percent more unless you have signed contracts already expect to pay 5 to 10 maybe 20 percent more
I don't really follow your question but if you haven't booked your venue yet - paid the deposit and signed the contract - start there and do so ASAP. The wedding party can and should wait, however; there's nothing to get "on track" with them a year and a half before your wedding. Work on booking things like reception venue, caterer, ceremony space, officiant, flowers (if desired), DJ (if desired), cake, dress. It's too early to order WP attire and there's nothing else they're required to do.
I'm also a tad confused by the post but if i'm reading it right, you have chosen everything just have not booked or actually purchased anything and are wondering what to do next? The wedding planner/checklist on here has been a life saver for me. I am 8 months out and only have the grooms suit and our rings to go. All the venues and vendors are booked and paid for in full, I did all the decor myself. If you have not officially booked your venue, photographer, caterer etc, those should be a priority as dates fill up fast. Get those deposits paid asap to hold your date. Who is doing your decor? You, friend, hiring someone....get that discussion started as well. Do you have your guest list and bridal party complete? You are still pretty far out so you actually have months before you really need to do anything right away.
