You’ve gotten engaged, and while most of us have envisioned our dream day since we were born, there are many things that need to be figured out which can sometimes take away from enjoying your engagement. You may have booked all the important things – the venue, maybe even the band or you just don’t have a clue about where to begin. What now?
Most couples know what they need to do when it comes to their wedding, but I often get asked “when should I send the Save the Dates” or “when should we finalize seating arrangements.” In the midst of helping my own cousin plan his wedding, I decided to transform the wedding timeline I give all my clients getting married, into a pretty print that you can download as a PDF here, because a boring checklist just doesn’t make wedding planning any fun. Plus with wedding season a few months away, it seems like the perfect time to share this helpful resource. Whether you have 14 months or 3 months to plan a wedding, this timeline should serve as a helpful guide in letting you know the basic order of events. Most brides don’t usually have the luxury of having all the time in the world to plan their wedding, but you can still have a stress-free and enjoyable planning process, and this will help you stay on track.
I’ve also put together a full detailed wedding checklist that you can download here. It has every possible task pertaining to planning your wedding that you can imagine, as well as things you need at your venues or accessories you should have as part of your attire. Although, every task might not pertain specifically, these timeline and checklists can help you plan bridal showers, or any other milestone party in your life.
The most important thing to check off your schedule is to remember that you’re getting married & going to live happily ever after! No wedding is perfect and things might not go as planned, just remember to enjoy the moment, because it goes by faster than you think, and have fun!
I hope you find this helpful!
