Why Create a Wedding Timeline

As much as I'm sure you would love to fast forward to your wedding day immediately after your fiancé pops the question, weddings take time and careful consideration to plan. There are many elements to making your day everything you always dreamt it would be, so it is imperative to create a time line leading up to your wedding day.

Hiring a wedding planner to facilitate every aspect of your wedding from venue to menu, from decor to floral is the first move you should make.  If you choose to be a more Do-It-Yourself kinda bride ensuring someone orchestrates the big day for you is key, otherwise what fun will you have?  You will need to keep track of important tasks, vendors, participants, and most importantly, deadlines. Having every detail accounted for and mapped out will help alleviate any unnecessary stress.

Here are a few tips from the team at Over the Top Events:

  • Decide the formality of and style of the big day (traditional, victorian, themed, elegant, modern, chic,...)

  • Create your budget. Consider everything from the dress to the wedding officiator, including everything in between

  • Start interviewing and booking wedding professionals: planners, ceremony site, receptions sites, caterers, waiters, bartenders, photographer, videographer, florists, etc.

  • Get inspired by checking out the trands for the upcoming wedding season
