Hi all! First post here

We booked those two less than 2 months after getting engaged in February of this year. We're looking into finding a DJ and wedding decorator now.
I'm 99% sure we've decided on the color theme
I'm starting my dress search now but it's been quite overwhelming.
We've selected our wedding party, although FH has yet to ask his guys
I'm a little unsure when a good time is to do our engagement shoots, as we're currently living in Edmonton (we're originally from Vancouver and all our family and friends are here). I don't really want to do the shoot in the dead of winter, and would probably prefer spring/early summer. Is that enough time if we wanted to release Save the Dates? I have no idea when StDs should be sent out either
Also, what is everyone's budget for DJ's if you are choosing to have one? There was one I liked (I went to a wedding last year where he played) and his price was $1000 including the lighting and sound system (speakers, etc). Overall I really liked him, but have no idea if it's reasonable or too much. He also isn't exactly diligent in replying to emails, so that's also detering me.
I'm glad we still have a year left to plan the wedding, but it's definitely harder planning this long distance than if we were still living in Vancouver.
