 WEDDING PLANNING TIMELINE AND CHECKLIST

~ WHAT TO DO 12 MONTHS OR MORE BEFORE YOUR WEDDING ~

Our Wedding Planning Timeline and Checklists cover many of the main items you will need to address during the wedding planning process. Since each wedding is unique and the specific requirements will vary from wedding to wedding you will likely find that some listed items are not needed while other items that are not listed will become part of your personal wedding planning timeline.  Although our wedding timeline and checklist is based on a 12 month wedding planning period, depending upon when you start planning your wedding, the timeline can easily be adjusted to fit your needs. 

- Tell your parents of your engagement and introduce them if they haven't met

- Announce your engagement in the local newspaper

   (The ceremony and reception location availability and officiant schedule may affect the exact wedding date.)
