We have discussed the idea of planning a wedding in lesser time in our previous blogs. Though it’s not convenient it helps to make decisions as quickly as possible without giving any second thoughts about your decision. We also believe that if you have plenty of time in your hands then you should take at least 12 months to plan your wedding. But if you ask us how much time is enough then we would say 9 months would be enough to plan your wedding.  It is the adequate time that will help you get all the arrangements done in a perfect way without any glitches.


Here are some tips and timeline that will help you plan your perfect wedding day…



First things first


Start with setting the budget and then book your key vendors first such as venue, caterer, photographers etc while sticking to your budget. You should reach out to all the “key players” and asks about their pricing as well as availability. After booking them you can slow down and focus on the smaller details. You really need to be decisive and organised as you are working on a timeline.
