when should i start to prepare for my wedding?

Recommended Posts

Start planning now... like the girls said it is never too early.  I got engaged January of this year and I am not getting married until January 2014.  Start looking into the different areas and resorts and narrow it down for a start and than you can keep your eye out for good finds.  Plus if you are a DIY'er than you will have lots of time to do all the DIY projects you wish :) Happy Planning!

I think it's a good idea to start now. I'm also getting married in November 2013 and I've already booked my photographer, venue, spoke with a travel agent for group booking, ordered my dress, and working on invitations. I feel like with a destination wedding, the more you do over time, the less stressful things will be this time next year.

I started planning right away we had a 2 year engagement.  I picked resort 20 months and sent out save the dates at that time to only close friends and family.  At 11 months out I sent out save the dates to Everyone.  I purchased a dress one year in advance.  Starting looking for deals on OOT bags right away.  The more time to you have the more likely you are to save money.  Good Luck!!

Definitely start as early as possible. You'll be amazed how quickly time flies. Especially if you plan to do any DIY projects. I'm a week away from my departure and I rushing to finish them all!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
