    We started with the venue Rebecca because that's what books up quickest and sets the tone to your whole wedding. Then you know how long you have to plan: what transport you'll need what numbers you need etc etc. we even managed to choose our colour scheme from our reception. If you're having a church wedding I'd also take a mental note of the aisle width so you know what size of dress is practical.. Especially so at the venue; some pack the tables so close there's no way a princess dress would be able to squeeze through

    I would write a list of people who you think you want to invite so you know rough numbers for a venue, then decide on venue and church.there is a good check list on here but I was bought this book as an engagement present which I find useful as a tick list :-)

    I would start with the venue and secure yourselves a date, from there everything else will fall into place as you go along. Sit down and have a think about your budget if you haven't already, and the numbers of people you will need to accommodate, both of which will help you with your venue search.

    After booking our venue we booked suppliers such as DJ, harpist and photographer. Would have also booked transport at this time if we were having it. A little later on we booked the cake lady, hair stylist and MUA and a magician.

    We've been slowly chipping away at things as we go so now with just over 8 months to go we've not got too much left to do, which is a big weight off our shoulders! Just saving up, paying off suppliers and buying little bits and bobs for us now.

    Spend time searching the internet for inspiration and ideas to help you decide what kind of day/theme you want xx
