Your wedding day will be one of the most important days of your life. You need to make sure you plan everything properly. When it comes to planning, time is always the concern. This article will lay out a wedding planning timetable to help you plan your wedding in the right time.
Before you read the timetable it is important to understand that everything in this article is an estimate and the exact timetable for you will depend on the type and size of your wedding.
When you begin setting up your timetable it is important that you give yourself a realistic amount of time. One of the great stresses of weddings is trying to accomplish too much over too short of a period of time. Give yourself the time needed and eliminate stress.
One of the biggest issues can be the availability of venues for your wedding ceremony and reception. This is especially true if you are planning a summer wedding. If the venue you want is not available when you want it is wise to postpone the wedding instead of moving it forward to ensure that it is properly planned.
So, what should your wedding planning timetable look like? The first thing you need to do is plan the venue you wish to use. The venue may require you to book years in advance, so this must be planned before anything else. It is wise to book the venue for your ceremony and reception separately as soon as possible so that you can get the earliest date possible.
All other aspects of the wedding, such as dresses, flowers, and invitations, should be planned over an 18-month period. The main problem with planning the wedding dress so far in advance is the bride may change her shape before the wedding. A good way to get round this is to have a number of fittings for your dress leading up to your big day.
One great way to avoid stress is to plan all the biggest things yourself e.g. the venue, the dress etc and get others to help you with smaller things such as favours or table decorations. This will help save you from many restless nights and allow you to focus on the truly important parts of the wedding.
The most important thing is ensuring that your wedding planning timetable allows you plenty of time to plan everything. You don't want to be planning the biggest day of your life in a rush. The best wedding planning timetable is to book your venue as soon as possible and then do everything else over the next one to one and a half years.
