Hi you could book your venue and photographer because they get booked very quickly. You can do the rest a bit more leisurely good luck :)

Fab thank you - Just didn't want to ask to look around for them to say its way to early, but because i'm picky on the date (16th May 2020) i want to make sure I do it with enough time x

I started Jan 15 for my wedding Oct 17. I just did one supplier a month so that I could focus on them and get what I wanted without the wedding taking over my life as it is now :)

As others have said, venues and photographers tend to get booked really quickly, so the sooner you do it the better really! Good luck :-)

I was just thinking this today. I'm getting married 13th June 2020. I'm going to go to some wedding shows. But I thought I was planning way in advance! Early is good I think.

It's never to early to start planning! Some venues may not be able to take bookings more than 2 years in advance but there are also venues that will book up years in advance!

At a wedding fayre yesterday a photographer told me he's already got bookings into 2020. Venue and photographer I'd book first. But I probably wouldn't buy my dress until the year before. I expect my body to change in three years x

We get married March 2019, booked our venue April this year and over the last 4 months have booked most things, from DJ, evening entertainment, photobooth, photographer and flowers. Wanted to get as much done as possible so we didn't have too much stress nearer the time. Also helped us keep to budget and if we need to save up a little more.
