Congratulations!!! I would recommend taking a little bit (like 1-2 weeks) to think about wedding budgets and stuff like that with your fiancé (budget, guest count, what you're willing to splurge/save on). Once you have a good idea about that, try to see what venues exist that fit your budget and guest list size. A venue is probably the most expensive part of the wedding (which is reasonable), but you should still try to find something at a reasonable price point. Then you secure a date and put down a deposit once you have a venue picked.

Congratulations on your engagement! 🎉 Let's streamline this stellar planning journey for your October 2025 wedding:
Wedding Dress Shopping:
Start the quest for the dream dress about 12-18 months before your wedding. This allows ample time for alterations and ensures you're a vision of bridal beauty on the big day.
Begin ordering key elements like flowers, decor, and that show-stopping cake about a year ahead. Think of it as casting the enchanting spell for your wedding wonderland!
General Wedding Planning:
Dive into the planning adventure around the same time you start ordering. Develop a timeline, choose your venue, and get the major aspects in place to set the stage for a seamless celebration.
As the date draws near (around 6 months prior), focus on finalizing all the details - think invitations, final fittings, and confirming bookings. You're in the homestretch, and everything's coming together beautifully!
Stay organized, enjoy the journey, and here's to an extraordinary wedding! 🥂💍
Congratulations on your engagement!! So exciting ☺️ I got my dress about a year before my wedding date. For me, that was one of the foundational pieces of the wedding planning so I had to do it promptly. Setting a date, booking a venue and getting a dress were my priority items that I competed pretty soon.
