A checklist for you to keep track of all the milestones in your wedding planning.

6-12 Months Before the Wedding

Look and feel. What style wedding do you want? Outdoors, rustic, formal, beach...? Begin entering inspiration images into MyCollection.
The list. Decide how many guests you will invite and begin developing the guest list.
Budget basics. Decide who pays for what and determine the budget.
Where? Research locations and book the space.
When? Set a tentative date and time for the wedding, pending confirmation that the location you want is available.
Select and book the clergy or individual officiating the ceremony.
Assemble your team. Research wedding vendors such as florists, caterers, photographers, cake bakers and bands.  Decide if you want to hire a wedding planner and research options.
✓  Pick your wedding party: maid or matron of honor, bridesmaids, best man, groomsmen and other attendants, and inform them of all relevant dates.
Photographers and videographers. Interview and get references on the memory squad.
Registry decisions. Decide where you'll register and work with your fiancée to select your registry items.
The Gown: start shopping. When the date, time of day, location, style and level of formality of your wedding have been determined, shop for your wedding dress, shoes and accessories.
