Timing Is Everything

How long will your engagement be?
What is your ideal wedding date?
How much time do you need to plan your dream day?

Do any of your closest family members have a conflicting milestone (graduation, baby due, another wedding)?

Are there any annual celebrations or conventions scheduled in your city around that time?

A typical engagement lasts 9-18 months. This is partly due to the fact that the best venues and wedding professionals book a year in advance (at least). If you just got engaged over the holidays, a summer wedding in 2009 may not be an easy task to accomplish without making yourself crazy. If you must have a summer wedding, try for 2010.
