    If you want to have a band, I think that should be your next priority as all the really good bands are booked well in advance. Then photographer/videographer,and the church or celebrant. After that, you can probably relax for a while and sit with your feet up, looking at wedding magazines for ideas. Good luckxl

    i would start booking things as soon as you can really, i got engaged dec 2009, booked venue in nov 2010 and everything else in 2011 - only got kilts to book now with 7 months to go!
    usually suppliers freeze the price for you as soon as you book them, so it can definitely save you quite a bit of money as prices are always on the rise

    Hi we got engaged april 2011 and that year we booked the venue, band, videographer, minister and photographer. This year we have booked cake, know what piper we want and have just found my dress and side tiara. have a meeting with a florist in the next few weeks and after christmas plan on paying deposits to these people. Next year its the cars, rings, and bridesmaid dresses, with everythin else ie kilts stationary the last year. We get married 8th november 2014 and its nice to spread out everthing and take time researching,also means we will have less to do the final year and can concentrate on all the little nice things to buy.

    We've booked our planner, venues, photographer, and soon our celebrant. I'm not sure what timelines normally look like in Scotland, but we started early because where I am in the states many venues book even two years ahead of time..which is just crazy!! We probably didn't need to start as early, but its nice to get the big decisions out of the way and be able to focus more on the small details.
