    i started planning right away and we had a little over a year before the wedding. you can start working on stuff but it doesn't mean you'll have do things everyday. I say the more time you have planning, the better. Have fun!!

      FI and I got engaged in January 2009 and we are getting married in April 2010 giving us about 15 months to plan. I feel like this has been a good amount of time for us to pull everything together. There really wasn't a whole lot of planning that could be done prior to about a year from the wedding because resorts do not post their pricing that far in advance and airlines don't price out flights that far in advance. For us, we wanted to make sure that the costs would be in line for our guests before committing to a resort. However, I would say that it is a totally "to each their own" situation - get started whenever you would like and enjoy the process!!

        We got engaged on Christmas 2009 and we are planning a November 2010 wedding. It already feels like it is too short but I really don't want to wait any longer than that.

            My wedding is in July 2010. I started planning in August 2009 and decided on a resort in September 2009, so my timeframe was about 10 or 11 months. I think the only negative thing about it being too far in advance is that prices aren't available that far in advance and you may get your heart set on a resort and then find out the prices have risen drastically or that the airfare is unreasonable. I think a year is a good time to start the actual planning process but two years is fine to start getting your ideas and thoughts together.
