      go ahead start planning i never think it's to early....I actually started planning early... found out i was pregnant...slowed the process down a bit. But i'm happy i started early because it created less stress in the long run.

        Welcome to the forum!
        I started planning approx a year before, right after we got engaged.

          I got engaged Feb 2010 and I started May of this year and my wedding is May 2011. Listen I think 1-2 years is good because there is so much info and this site is awesome!

            I find there is no such thing as too early :)!!! When we get to crunch time we will always feel like we wish we had more time!!

                We planned our wedding in 8 months. It was small and simple.

                  we just got engaged in May, started throwing around ideas right away.. set the date for April of next year. it would have been hard to plan if we had set the date much later because we are only now starting to see the prices come in for the resort and airlines for april 2011. we still haven't done our save-the-dates or anything just yet as we are waiting until we 100% have our date and room confirmed.

                    I got engaged Feb 2010 and looking to have our wedding May/June 2011. You want enough time to research, figure out what's most important to you and your FI and also have time to change your mind, if need be.

                    All the best with the planning!

                      I started planning a year in advance. I got the big things for the AHR booked and ordered things a little at a time. I started in on the details about three months in advance. Six months to a year is enough time. Some venues and services fill up more than a year in advance so it's good to book those things ASAP.

                      As far as the photography, flowers, etc. for my actual wedding ceremony, we booked those with the wedding planner when we arrived in Jamaica. It was very easy to sit down with her (at Couples Swept Away) and let her take care of it. It took about an hour to plan the whole ceremony! I was very anxious about not having these things booked ahead of time, but I did not need to worry. They did an excellent job of taking care of everything. I did bring a sand ceremony frame, fans, and other small details.

                      The earlier you start, the more time costs are spread out over, which really really helps because all of the little things add up! Start looking for gifts and accesories whenever you have free time and cash.
