It’s all coming together now, what’s next?
If you missed it, I’ve taken you through the first steps of planning your wedding with:
Host Hen/Stag/Sten Parties
Time to let your hair down - you’ve been so busy with organising your wedding! The two to three month mark is a great time to host your pre-wedding celebrations. Most of the time, this will have been organised for you already so enjoy the ride!
Finalise speech and reading allocations
Allow plenty of time for anyone who is making a speech or participating with readings to write and practise. Once you have your wedding day timeline organised you can let these people know where they will be participating in the day. It is usually the groom, father of the bride and best man who have a speech - however, breaking the norms, myself and Andy both had a speech at our wedding! You can do your day however you like!
Pay suppliers in full
Vendors love timely payments. It saves any additional stress or admin for you and your vendors.
Create a vendor schedule
With all of your suppliers paid, it’s a good idea to create a wedding day schedule to send to your vendors. Florists and cake makers will need to know what time to arrive and drop things off, and entertainment will need to know when they can set up. Many vendors and venues will prompt you for this information to ensure everything runs smoothly on the day.
