wedding timelines, wedding planning

Planning a wedding is really like project-managing an event. It requires high levels of organisation and many, many to-do lists!

As a general rule, a wedding is organised comfortably in 9-12 months. Many brides invest in a wedding planning book/file to keep everything - lists, supplier quotes, deposit receipts etc - in one place.

The various elements of the timelines are interchangeable: the schedule will provide a useful planning checklist.

This guide offers an online wedding planning schedule based on a 9-12 month timeline, as well as timetable for the wedding day.
