Also, a budget. How much do you want guests to spend? How much do you want to spend? Also where do you picture yourself getting married....on a beach? in a gazebo? a garden area? then going through pics and seeing which locations are better than others. Those were allll my starting out thoughts and thats what helped! good luck!

It will save your life. Add to it, or get rid of things-- but as you check things off the stress will just float away.
First-- Destination choice
Second-- Resort picks (2 back-up choices, JUST IN CASE)
Third-- Start plugging through these threads and look for:
- invite inspiration
- STD etiquette
- start looking for OOT bag stuff (cheaper at end of summer)
Most importantly-- Remember to enjoy every moment. While planning is by-far the most stressful part, it can also be some of the most fun. Get creative, and have fun!

BUT, FI just moved down to Dallas (he lives in Chicago) for 6-8 weeks to stay with me and to plan the wedding. I've narrowed it down to 3 resorts; one in Hawaii, 2 in Mexico. Now, I'm searching for a location in the Caribbean. (FI is very inclined to the Caribbean.) We now have a budget - so it helps. At this point, I find myself more and more thinking - Civil service and let's call it a day!
