In partnership with Paperless Post, we’re sharing a bit of advice on wedding planning timelines. A wedding can be one of the most joyful and exciting times in a person’s life, but just thinking about the tasks at hand can be overwhelming. How do we avoid stress in our clients’ lives, and ours? Let’s start with the big picture…

In the beginning stages of planning, it’s important for us to reeeeally get to know our clients. What do they envision? What do they value? Moving forward, we create a customized planning calendar with monthly reminders, and a corresponding to-do list personalized just for our bride and groom.

In the short time after engagement, some couples choose to send save-the-date cards, often with engagement photos. This can be done as soon as the date (of course) has been chosen, or as early as 10 to 11 months prior to the wedding. Not ready to send those out so early? Four to six months prior should still give guests ample time to consider attending.

In this day and age, many are opting to send digital save-the-dates, for which our go-to is Paperless Post! This is a great choice not only because is it economic, it’s easily accessible and the options are both beautiful and plentiful. To view those options and get inspired, click here.

When booking all the players on your team (a.k.a. your vendors), remember to start with the big picture. What are the essentials to hosting an event? Ceremony and reception site, catering, rentals… secure those first. Then, start to hone in on the details. Keeping budget in mind, now look into photographers, videographers, entertainment and musicians. Prioritize booking vendors whose availability is limited, or those that can take on only one event per day. For example, a florist can be booked later in the timeline because he or she can serve multiple clients in one day.

To stay organized during this process, continually refer back to that planning calendar and to-do list. And as always, enjoy the process. 🙂 Thanks for joining us today, and see you again soon!
