I have some great recommendations for wedding vendors in the Phoenix, Arizona area if you would like some direction! After the previous things are complete, the next big step would be to start sampling caterers and cake. Some caterers have specific times for open houses and taste testing and some you will make a private appointment with you. Another great place to sample a lot all at once are the Bridal shows that take place in both January and August. Check out both the Metropolitan Bridal Show and All About Weddings Bridal Show!
When you find one you love, they will help you pick out the perfect menu and design the perfect cake!
Next, one of the most exciting parts of the planning process—DRESS SHOPPING. Often, this is the first thing that Bride’s want to do, but if you are planning your wedding over a year out, I would wait until at least 8 months away since size can change! Another thing that I often hear Bride’s doing is buying a dress too small and having a goal to get into it. Do not do this! Buy a dress that fits and is reasonable comfortable. There are all kinds of styles that will look amazing in any shape and size!! If you do happen to lose weight, you can get in altered before the wedding. You will probably go in for one last fitting about a month before you wedding.
