Plan A Wedding
In Eight Months
According to James’ Places you can plan a wedding in just eight months. First book the venue. This is the most important thing and the deal breaker which will dictate the date of the big day. Then book the registrar or church service.
Between six to eight months, choose your photographer, florist and cake maker. Reserve suits, if you are hiring and start shopping for your wedding dress. At four to five months, send out your invitations and make appointments for your hair and makeup. If you want a DJ and/or a band for the evening reception, book it now.
With two to three months to go, you should have done your final dress fitting and double checked your arrangements.
One to two months left and time to confirm numbers, think about a seating plan and buy presents for bridesmaids and best man.
With one week to go, delegate wedding day duties, check speeches and organise a run through or rehearsal with close family and friends.
And on the day, enjoy, knowing that everything has been taken care of. Congratulations!
Once your big day is over, you can then look forward to your honeymoon. If you are choosing a holiday abroad, think about what the weather will be like when you go. If your wedding is in the winter months and you are looking for winter sun, you may need to go long haul, which will add to the cost. For some countries it may also be the rainy season.
Some companies organise honeymoon packages, where you can get added extras to make your holiday extra special.
Whatever you choose, your wedding and honeymoon will be one to remember.
