I would say that the first thing you should do is start a wedding website. IMO this takes a while to get started, and to add content.
Then, circa the end of September - is send out save the dates - these can be really simple - just to let your guests know that you are going away to get married. We did this, and sent our engagment photo at the same time (March 2008 for a January 2009 wedding). Our guests really appreciated the heads up, and many started to save money right away. This also gave them the oppotunity to see our wed-site (which was still incomplete but many checked it out)
In the mean time, this time, find yourself a great travel agent, and negotiate out the pricing. When this is done, you can send out your real invite, and include you booking details - in your case I'd say you should do this by early January 2009.
When this is done, you could start thinking about buying stuff.... I totally agree with Abbie, buying stuff too early will result in mass amounts of storage! PLUS, you may change your mind on some stuff over the next year - it happens all the time!
Good luck, I hope this helps!

I sent the stds 6 to 8 months before and invitations a month before (but almost all me guests were mexican, the timing is a little different for americans)

Hopefully 6-8 months before I will know so I can start ordering.
And I live in an apt with not storage space so I really don't have the room now.

Should I call them and ask even though I put in the STD letter that if you are thinking about coming can you give us a heads up so we can plan (not in those exact words..a lot more formal).
sorry it's off topic but I am waiting for these people so I can get moving a little more!
