I found this awesome Wedding Planning Timeline on Pinterest given to us by Marry This. Most couples planning a wedding have never been married before, so this is super helpful information. I think it also helps bite that procrastination bug right in the behind, if you know what I mean. The only change I would make is to add doing an Engagement Session 5 months before so you can use one of those images for your Save the Date cards, and also have a guest signing book made using your engagement photographs. These are super popular with my wedding clients.
Another thing to think about when booking vendors is that they want to be able to plan their summer vacation, so if you wait until a month or two before your wedding, they may already have set your date aside to be gone. Vendors appreciate having the dates booked way in advance so they can do their own planning.
You can feel free to share this with anyone you know who is getting married.
