Wedding Planning 101: How Early Is Too Early?

Wedding Planning

When Is The Right Time?   

Planning the wedding is one of the most exciting (and stressful) tasks of your life, and a lot of brides and grooms are eager to get to it as soon as possible. However, is it possible to start early? Yes! Is it possible to start too late? Also yes! To help you out, we have prepared a list of the perfect times to do certain steps in your wedding planning process. 

The Guest List

The guest list is one of the first things you should come up with. This is definitely one part of the planning you can think about as soon as you get engaged, since having an idea of how many guests you want to have will help you with working out your budget as well.


Your budget is a part that will dictate most of the important elements of your wedding, which is why you should focus on this aspect before thinking about any venues or suppliers.  

Before you get too excited looking at your dream photographers or venues, you should sit down with your partner and have the conversation. 

Style and Theme

The style and theme of the wedding is something that you really want to have nailed down before you start planning the rest, given that it will set the tone for everything else. Make sure to speak with your partner and come up with a solution you both like.


Booking the venue is an important aspect of planning and organizing your wedding, and it should be your first priority. Twelve to fourteen months before the date is a good timeframe for choosing a venue, and anything over two years might be a little too far in the future for some venues to consider you.


You should start thinking about wedding planners, florists, caterers, photographers, videographers, and bands rather early, as they need to be booked a year in advance. 

The Dress

We can assure you that you will regret looking at your dress too late and not allowing enough time for alterations. You should order your dress and schedule any fittings a couple of months from the big day.
