You need to figure out where the bridge is going before you worry about the pickups.

Also, use the outer saddles and a string line from the outer nut slots to find the correct pickup location. I've been caught with this. - If you use the line of the neck edges to locate the pickups, they may end up off-centre to the line of the strings. So, as you say, get the neck properly seated and the bridge (temporarily) installed before worrying about the pickup location.

Addendum. - I would do the neck pocket before the bridge, and then use the line from the edges of the neck to locate the bridge.
