16 Mar Plan Your Big Day In 12 Months – Part 3
Planning 3-0 Months Before Your Wedding
Go on a Final Shopping Spree
Start with purchasing the groom’s and groomsmen’s outfits. Get boutonnieres designed by your florist and think of a unique, unifying element to add fun to your wedding photos. Perhaps printed colourful ties, eccentric socks, or pocket squares! Most importantly, buy your wedding rings and ring bearer pillow. Gang up with your girls and go shopping for bridesmaid dresses that they can flaunt on your wedding day!
Finalize: Menu, Drinks, and Setup
Call all your vendors and confirm their availability for your big day. Go over the menu, drinks, cake flavour and decoration again to ensure you’re on the same page. Discuss your wedding day décor and floral arrangements with the concerned vendors and your florist.
Finalize: The Details
Write down your vows! You don’t necessarily have to sit with your partner to do this, but do agree on a tone and format. Read examples for inspiration, but stay true to your relationship by listening to your heart! Also, if you haven’t decided on the song for your entry or first dance, do it NOW. Don’t forget to think of wedding favours and special gifts for your bridal party!
Finalize: Your Look
Schedule pre-wedding beauty appointments at your salon. Get a hair and makeup trial done so you’re absolutely sure of what you want for your wedding day and other events. You should have your final dress fitting done around this time, so decide on accessories like the veil, headpiece, shoes, and jewelry. Also, make sure your bridal party and flower girl/ring bearer looks are finalized.
Finalize: The Ceremony Order
Get your friends or relatives to help with readings. They can also help you set the ceremony order straight if there’s something odd! Confirm all details with important bridal party members like Mother of Bride and Mother of Groom, Maid of Honor and Best Man, bridesmaids and groomsmen, etc.
Organize the Big Bash
Not the wedding; this is about the bachelor party and the bachelorette! Get ready to let your hair down for a time you and your BFFs are never going to forget.
Send out Invites
Hire a calligrapher or rope in a friend or relative who is good at this, and is willing to help you. Or try it yourself! Send out invites to your bridal party and guests and wait for your big day! Remember that some guests take their time to RSVP; just give them a nudge with a phone call.
