The How-To Lounge: Wedding Timeline, Part II

Weddings are notoriously stressful, but all it takes is a little organization to make them much more manageable and a wedding timeline can make all the difference in the world! To check out part two in our wedding time line series


Nine months in advance

  • Not only do you want to start compiling your guest list, but you also want to start gathering up addresses. This can take a lot more time than it may seem. Often parents have an entirely different set of people that they want included, so compromise may be necessary at this time.
  • Choose your color spectrum, and decide which color you want your wedding party to be wearing.
  • If you're going the classic honeymoon route, then start planning now. You'll get the best deals by planning ahead.
  • Get your gift registry started. There is also the option of having money given to a honeymoon plan as well as going the donation route, so explore every possibility. There will be parties galore in the upcoming month, so plan in advance for your gift-getting bonanza.

Stay tuned in the next few weeks for part three of our Wedding Timeline, and if you missed it, be sure to check out part one.

Haha, I know just what you mean. I want to register at Pottery Barn since that is where I love to buy my home decor. However my family and friends will think that it is too expensive so I'll have to settle somewhere else.

I swear I wish I knew people with Money, because I was would like my gift registry at Pier1. The people I know consider Pier1 to be too expensive. For the guest list, I'm totally reconsidering a big to even medium wedding. I may in fact just invite close people. Nothing like a honeymoon in Paris!!!
