When you are planning your wedding things need to be done well in advance, especially booking the location because popular locations are getting booked well in advance. Most people usually plan to have their wedding approximately a year after they get engaged. If this is the case then you should start picking a date as soon as possible and then decide the location of your wedding. This should be completed within the first six to twelve months.
