Wedding Planning 101: Keep It Simple With A Wedding Timeline For Brides And Grooms

You’re Engaged!

You certainly want to enjoy this wonderful and magical time in your life but you know that planning your own wedding is going to be a big job! The following checklists might make it a little easier for you to keep it simple, keep it organized and keep you sane!

The 12-Month Countdown

6-12 Months Before Your Wedding…

The wedding date has been set and now like any large project, it’s a good idea to step back and take a look at the big picture first, then break it down to the finer details later.

The Big Picture: Who, What, Where and How:

    Decide who will pay for what, where you’ll get married and how expenses will be shared

    Talk to friends, family, bridal consultants or wedding coordinators to get the direction you need for starting an organization system.

    For most couples, the wedding day can be a blur, so decide early on the best way to capture your special day’s cherished memories – like with an Adesso Photo Guest Book.
