Twelve Month Wedding Planning Checklist

 

Planning a wedding can seem like climbing Mount Everest with all the to-dos and decisions that have to be made.

If you’re anything like me, I like to break my tasks into smaller more doable items. I love feeling accomplished when I get to check something off my list.

Here is a twelve month wedding planning checklist to get your preparations on the easy track!

12 Months:

  • Set a date.
  • Select your color palette and wedding style.
  • Set a budget.
  • Create your guest list
  • Hire a wedding planner.
  • Select your bridesmaids and groomsmen.
  • Book your ceremony and reception venues.
  • Hire your officiant.

9+ Months:

6+ Months:

  • Find and buy your wedding dress.
  • Pick your bridesmaids dresses.
  • Find and book a wedding cake baker.
  • Book your ceremony and reception entertainment. Orchestra, Violinist, DJ, or band.
  • Create a bridal registry.

4+ Months:

  • Hire a calligrapher.
  • Order your wedding invitations.

Whew! There you go. It’s a big comprehensive list, but when it’s tackled in bite-sized pieces, it’s so doable.
