I too am a 2014 bride-to-be
4th of April to be exact.
I originally only booked the venue and photographer in November last year and had planned to leave everything else till the 2nd half of this year but luckily a friend of my told me about how early things like makeup artists etc book up in advance. So one booking turned into many and it has been one full on month of wedding planning!
The most exciting thing in the last week is finding my dress!!! and I am just in LOOOVE. I go back today for a final look, put a deposit down and have my initial measurements taken so the material can start being collected. Final measurements then in August/September and the dress should arrive in February with alterations in March.
I think I have also narrowed down my bridesmaids dresses to two options, one we have tried (first place we looked) and fell in love with it but there is another one I want to try before deciding. We have lots of time so im not in a rush.

Biggest thing for me now is losing the 20kg I have out on in the last year....I will be devastated if I am this weight when I walk down the aisle.
