If you’re still a ways out from your big day, there are some things you will need to take care of, even now. Here is a small checklist of the things you’ll want to take care of 6-9 months in advance.
Begin Trying on Dresses – visit bridal salons and start trying on dresses and veils. You might need to have several rounds of alterations so it’s important to start looking around now.
Start Thinking of Honeymoons – now is the time to start thinking about your honeymoon location and particulars. If you have children, you’ll need to arrange for a sitter, and if you still need to save the money, you’ll want to create a savings plan that will ensure that you have the money by the time you’re ready to go.
Start Interviewing Caterers – you’re going to want to start interviewing caterers now, and choosing your menu. You’ll want to decide whether you’re having a sit-down menu, a buffet-style menu, or a constant flow or hors d’oeuvres.
Think about Your Music – decide now whether you’ll have a DJ or if you’ll simply create a playlist for your ceremony and reception. Think about the music for the ceremony as well; will it be a live piano player, or your favorite songs playing from your MP3 player.
Start Visiting Venues – finally, you’ll want to start visiting venues to determine which would be the best for your wedding. Ask about prices and packages to determine whether they would fit in your budget or not.
By starting this far in advance you can ensure that everything’s booked and ready to go for your big day!
