Ok, so... I know these things take forever to plan. I'm in the 'beginning' stages and I'm one of those people who needs to have events planned down to the moment and that's only to organize my thoughts... otherwise I'm quite spontaneous. Yes, I know that's a paradox. Anyway, on to my reason for posting this thread. All of you who have recently (or are in the near future) exchanged nuptials, I'd like to know how you planned and what your advice is for timelines and things. I've got a few ideas on places, but I do need help with general things like: where do I start? Do I book the reception site and ceremony first? How long do I wait to send invitations? I've been told they take a year to get into line. I have a year. Is there any advice you can offer me on what I should do to help me organize my thoughts? I'm going batty trying to make sense of it.
