    I’d suggest to get a photographer next, they also book up fast. Especially if photos are really important to you.

    I'd definitely start looking at vendors next! Photographer, DJ, day of coordinator, videographer, florist, etc.

    For me my next step was the photographer. Pictures are important to me. We never seem to have enough or always have ones I feel comfortable in.
    What is the next thing you feel is most important? I would say look at the timeline/checklist and see what matters most. If your hair and makeup are top of your list to find before they may get booked

    Girl, don’t stress out because you have plenty of time. We hired a DJ, photographer, and looked for decor next. Make a list and tackle it one at a time.

    You’re doing fine! It’s not a race. You still have 15 months. That is still plenty of find to find a photographer, DJ, and flowers. I would look for those now, though, because they will book fast.

    You have a lot done! This is a major event to plan and you are doing wonderful. What matters is if you are happy with what you pick and makes you happy. Look for a photographer next then maybe look into your music.
    You got this!

    Your doing great just take it one day at a time that's what i did and trust me its gonna feel like you haven't done anything but once you cross things you have done off you are gonna start noticing what you have done and your definitely going to say dang i have come along way from when i first started! just keep doing what you do and sometimes it doesn't hurt to take a break and come back into it either later on that day or the next day

    100% agree on the photographer next. Have you looked at the checklist/to do list in WW? I found it super helpful to know what I should be doing when, although some items I did do sooner than it had listed.

    Photographer and caterer are next if your venue doesn't take care of food for you.

    You are doing great!! I would recommend taking care of the bigger items - DJ/Band + Photographer & then taking some time to enjoy this! Florist might be smart to start exploring as well but you have plenty of time!!!

    Also, is your vendor providing the food? If not, then you should also now be looking into a caterer, and probably to start looking into bakeries for cakes. My venue provided both, but I know not all venues are like that.

    I’m getting married this November (just under nine months from now) and I’ve been feeling these same stresses. My dress just came in, we’ve been making payments for our venue, and it was so important for me to book our photographer. That was my priority. But I’ll be honest, the past few weeks I had to take a break from all the planning because of how stressed out and anxious I was because of all of it! It’s okay to take a break, you have time to breathe even if it feels like the wedding is coming too quickly. I would recommend making a list of your priorities and allotting a budget to each of your priorities and making the rest of your vendor bookings from there.
