The earlier the better!!! I started some DIYs over a year in advance and still found ourselves scrambling in the final week! Just store everything properly and you'll be fine! Box things to avoid dust and throw a dryer sheet in to keep smelling fresh!
My wedding isn’t till April 2021 & we’ve started collecting stuff, we’re going for a whimsical vintage look so it’s a lot of acquired items from thrift stores and that takes time. As long as you are very clear on your vision for the look & feel of the decor and very sure you won’t drastically change your mind, go for it. Make lists & Pinterest boards to help keep you on track.
Go for it! Just be careful not to do too too much (in case your vision changes).. but I started making a lot of little things early on.. The bigger dent you put in everything early, the less stressed you will be near the end.
Oh do not feel bad for starting this earlier. I am in the same boat girl! I am not getting married until July 2020 but I already have my Limo's booked, Officiant Booked, Photographer/Videographer Booked, Venue booked, Dj booked, center pieces purchased, take home gifts for guests purchased, all we are looking to do now is hiring draping company, and floral's !
I like the idea of doing it earlier in order to not stress about it later! Do whatever you'd like girl!

My wedding is in August 2019, I started July of 2018 because we were doing all DIY decor. My wedding is two months away and there is still lots more to do! So start as early as you can cause you need to relax and enjoy your 2 months before the wedding.. haha goodluck!!
Our wedding isn't until October 2020, and we have already started our DIY Favours and Centrepieces. We are making wood coasters that are burned with our wedding logo and date. We want to make sure that they turn out perfect for our guests so we are testing out different types of wood and varnishes. It's never too early to start if you know what you want. It gives you time to perfect it and slowly get more and more done. From experience through a cousin I know that waiting to complete the favours until months before the wedding causes an immense amount of stress!
