Wedding Day Planner

     Being one of the most important and significant days of your life, you will naturally wish your wedding day to be wonderful. Weddings can be one of the most stressful days to arrange, so ensure that you plan well and that you allow plenty of time for all the arrangements to be made and carried out. Taking time to work out a wedding day planner will help you get organize and keep things manageable. Read on for a helpful wedding day planner guide, that you can add or subtract to.

12 months

12 months may seem like too far ahead to be planning a wedding, but planning this far in advance will really take the pressure off in the months leading up to your wedding day. Start as early as possible to begin planning and everything will fall much easier into place. At 12 months (or as much in advance as you can) you should start to gather ideas for the wedding, such as what kind of dress you are thinking of wearing and what bridesmaid dresses would compliment your dress. You should start to consider what style of wedding you would like, whether traditional or something a bit more unusual or quirky, and if you would like a large wedding party or a smaller affair. Begin building a wedding portfolio folder or binder which contains all your ideas and which you can amend over the months. Begin working out a realistic budget and find out if any family members will be contributing. Consider how many guests are likely to be inviting, as well as how many your fiancé intends to invite so that you can start to compile your wedding guest list. To simplify the process further, consider hiring a wedding planner to help you.

8 months

At approximately 8 months prior to your planned wedding date you should have gathered all your ideas together for the wedding. By now you should have a clear idea of what kind of wedding you would like to have and details such as wedding venues and ceremony. Now is time to source and book your venue, caterers, photographer, and florist. Book all of these now, in order to guarantee that they will be available on the day, especially if you are booking wedding venue that is in demand. Now is also the time to pick out your wedding dress. Make sure that when you have chosen your dress that you schedule at least three dress fittings in order to have your dress fitting you perfectly by the big day. Next you should register a wedding list with at least three retailers in order for your guests to pick out gifts for you.

6 months

At six months you should have your wedding invitations designed and sent to the printers. If you intend on having a honeymoon, then now is the time to check your passports to make sure they are valid and up-to-date. Begin to shop for the bridesmaids dresses and make sure that your bridesmaids are consulted on the choice.

4 months

At four months you should have your first wedding dress fitting. Make sure that the dress feels comfortable for you will be wearing it for quite some time. Make sure too that you wear the shoes you intend to wear for the wedding day, in order to check the length of the dress. Check that it is easy to walk in and sit down in. Choose your wedding cake and order it in advance for the day.

3 months

Double check all of the details and bookings, such as photographer and reception venues. Make sure that everything is running according to plan. Now is the time to purchase your wedding rings if not already done so.

2 months

At two months you should send out the invitations. This gives guests ample time to arrange their own plans such as time off work and travel plans. It also gives them time to purchase a wedding outfit and your wedding gift. You should also have another dress fitting at this time to make sure that the dress is still fitting you well.

1 month

At one month you should have received replies from your guests, so generate an RSVP guest list to list which guests are coming. Next you should have another dress fitting, which may be your last fitting. Make sure that you are completely happy with the fitting and the dress as this will likely be your last chance to make any drastic changes. Check once again that everything is running to plan and make any final payments that are outstanding.

1 week

At one week prior to your wedding, if you have scheduled well, you should not be stressed! Pick up your dress, and indulge in some pampering!
