Time to plan ahead

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Wedding -

So you’ve said yes to the love of your life and now it’s time to start get­ting pre­pared.

And we cre­ated a monthly check­list to make sure that there are no last minute pan­ics.

We start from one year from your big day. This is when the happy cou­ple have to get their think­ing hats on and de­cide on their bud­get, their venue and the size of wed­ding they de­sire.

Mov­ing on to nine months be­fore the happy day and it’s time to fi­nalise that guest list and con­sider where your dream hon­ey­moon des­ti­na­tion would be.

And be­lieve it or not this is the time to or­der the flow­ers and ar­range the en­ter­tain­ment.

Fast for­ward to six months be­fore the day of your dreams and the bride must say yes to the dress.

At this point in the plan­ning it’s also a good idea to book your hair­dresser and beau­ti­cian to make sure you look your best on the most im­por­tant day of a girl’s life.

Three months un­til you say, “I do,” and it’s time to send out those in­vites, buy the wed­ding rings and start fi­nal­is­ing your re­cep­tion theme and ta­ble plan too.

As the happy day draws closer and there is only one month to go this is the time when you have to com­plete check lists ga­lore as you fi­nalise the dress fit­ting, the venues, the florist, the pho­tog­ra­pher.

This is also the per­fect time to ar­range your hen party and stag do.

As if by magic there is only one week to go and it’s time to host a wed­ding re­hearsal.

Make sure you have your hon­ey­moon case packed and your overnight bag if your re­cep­tion is at a ho­tel.

And within just a year you have gone from say­ing “yes” to a pro­posal to “yes” to a new life with your part­ner.

Soul­mate Time to get or­gan­ised ahead of your big day
