The Count­down

Bride & Groom - - WEDDING PLANNER -

This guide will help you keep ev­ery­thing un­der con­trol and run­ning smoothly. It al­lows an av­er­age six to 12 months’ prepa­ra­tion, and is based on a tra­di­tional-style wed­ding and con­di­tions in the larger cen­tres. If you plan to get mar­ried in a shorter time or have a dif­fer­ent style of wed­ding, don’t panic, the ba­sic plan­ning and or­der will re­main much the same. But please re­mem­ber that while some sup­pli­ers are able to un­der­take work at short no­tice, for oth­ers this is quite im­pos­si­ble. Ad­e­quate lead time can take much of the stress out of wed­ding plan­ning and helps to en­sure you can ar­range your wed­ding just as you want it, with­out dis­ap­point­ments or sec­ond choices. Where ap­pli­ca­ble, get a writ­ten quo­ta­tion and con­tract from sup­pli­ers. To start with, delete any items that don’t con­cern you and insert any ex­tra items for your par­tic­u­lar style of wed­ding in the space pro­vided, then just tick off your achieve­ments as you go.
