Q: My wedding day is May 2011, when is the right time to start planning my wedding?
A: On average, couples start planning their wedding 18 months in advance. There is a plus side to early planning. You will have a lot more time to save for your wedding and you may be able to get 2009 rates for your 2011 wedding. The down side is wedding trends change every year. You may fall in love with something this year and by next year you will change your mind. To avoid that problem, I would suggest that you don't make any final decisions on decor, themes, colors or more importantly your dress before you reach the one year mark. Save your ideas and if you still love them one year before your wedding, then go for it!! As for vendors and venues, feel free to shop around and see what's out there. Chances are if you like a particular venue/vendor, you will still like them a year later. Just be sure to know their payment and refund policy if you decide to change your mind.
