Help - no instruction Columbia DX comfort bike

Just purchased the Columbia Journey DX women's comfort bike and it arrived with no directions. I was wondering if anyone out there has any experience putting this together. The front wheel needs to be attached with the brakes and speeds also.

What should i do first??? also seat and pedals are in need to assembly - probably my limited skills can figure this out but any words of wisdom would be appreciated as i have never put a bike together before.

Thanks in advance

Bring it to the bike shop. If you dont know what you are doing, its not that good to start with gears and brakes. Besides you probialy will need the special cutters for the cables and the casings they go in.
I am not saying you shouldn't work on your bike, just start with the easy stuff and work your way up.
