I think this is my biggest concern, we haven't started anything and new people don't even start until the end of September/October. I'm really concerned with WHEN we're going to get to plan and how experienced the new planners will be. I am trying really hard not to freak out and be positive, but it's hard... maybe I just need the shock of this to wear off. The whole planning process has not been very easy for us, our TA has been pretty useless, FI still doesn't know what he's wearing and now this too. I just really wanted a stress free, fun wedding and the whole process to be "easy" and it hasn't been!!!! Sorry for the rant ladies!!!

It's best if you start developing a list of questions you have for her now, types of flowers you like or sample bouquets/arrangements, etc, that will be really easy to get everything started. We have a bunch of special requests so she is working to accommodate us on them.
If you need help or want me to send you the questionnaire she sent or the questions I had for her, PM me your email and we can chat!

So I was going to comment on Kya's first post that i quoted but then Ann and Ali said exactly what I was going to say!
Great advice Ali. I think it is best to just start planning details that you want on your own. collect pic examples of flowers, tables, aisle runners, etc. so that when the coordinator does contact you, you are ready to go because you have it all ready.
Kya- 4.5 months out is a LONG LONG time. As Ann said I dont think it was until about a month or so before the wedding until i really started communicating with the coordinators. Planning a LC wedding is super easy and stress free. I knew how busy the coordinators were so i really tried to not "bug" them months and months before. I would just come here instead and ask all of my minor detail questions i would get answers much more quickly here too. Oh and in regards to your FI not having his attire yet..try not to let that bother you either. My DH didn't have his suit until 1 week before we left! yep i stressed and was sort of PO'ed at him because it really was the 1 thing he HAD to do. but well he did get it done and it was fine!
I am sure Kelly will get those new coordinators trained and up to speed in no time!
