Who to invite? Many wedding planners recommend concentrating on the people who really matter. Send out save-the-dates if you feel your wedding requires them. Create a guest list to help determine the size of venue required. 80% of guests invited will attend.

Start finding and negotiating with all the vendors from now on. Choose what you really want from extensive list of categories, including florists, photographers, bands, caterers, etc.
From streamlining your planning process to tracking your RSVP’s, a wedding website is definitely a smart move. And remember, update it often to keep guests in the know.
