Hi all! :) We have chosen our date, it is 2 years 10 months away. We've paid a deposit to our dream photographer and have booked our venue, as well as setting up a joint wedding account to save money. Could people give me a guideline on when I need to do things by? E.g. When to buy save the dates/invites, when to send them out etc. Any info (or a hi from those getting married in 2021 and what you've done so far!) would be greatly appreciated :)
Hi you can find a time line on line :)
I bought a wedding planning book. It tells you monthly month when’d to do things. It has check lists and notes to make etc. X
Make a list of all the things you want/need to do and tick them off a little at a time. Including centre pieces flowers invitations and booking cake transport caterers and your registrar. We sent out save the dates just over a year before and invites 6 months before.
Download bridebook I've just got it & it looks like it's going to make things so much easier (just started planning no bookings yet)
We booked our venue 2 years in advance I have put a deposit down on my dress as it the one, we have done the same with the bridesmaid dresses, we have been able to book the honeymoon, we are saving so when we see it, we will get it we have looked at invites but not sorted them, i have booked the florist though, it's exciting doing bits at a time x x
I can not stress the app Bridebook anymore. It is amazing for everything
Bridebook is great. I've had just over 5 months to organise the whole thing, and the checklist section has been invaluable.
I'm getting married in 2021 & we've also booked the venue as well as deposit on dress and caterers, currently looking at photographers. We've done other bits and bobs too but I just want to get stuff done!
Look at least a year before for your dress!
Download bridebook app, they give you month by month guide as when to buy things. It brilliant xx
We’re getting married in 2020! I’ve booked and paid deposit for venue, photographer, bridal dress, bought invites, bought bridesmaids gifts, paid & sorted registrar, deposit on flowers! Most things really?
You've got ages.. there are loads of sites that give you a guidance. I downloaded an app called bridebook which helped me. We decided in the July 2017 we was going to get married and got married April 2018
🤞 getting married in 2021! Need to convince the other half first, engaged 2017 but 2021 will be our 10 year anniversary
Hi I got engaged Feb18 and I'm getting married 01/08/2020. We have paid deposit on flowers, venue & registrar. Meetings next month with caterers and entertainment.
I also recommend Bridebook as I didn't have a clue where to start and it lays it all out quite nicely xx
I used the hitched app and website! I’m
A June 2021 bride. So far we have booked our reception venue, cars, photographer, videographer, dj, photo booth, bought our table plan and order of the day boards (having someone make them for us). I’ve got most of our table decorations. The sooner we booked the better price we got! You can only take wedding insurance out about 2 years before, so we are saving in an isa for now and when we have the insurance we are going to start paying balances. Enjoy planning.
We’ve booked the venue for 13/4/2020, not booked anything else yet but going to send the save the dates out in the next couple of months then the invites 9-12 months before. If you book suppliers now you might get 2018/2019 prices as most places haven’t figured out their 2020 prices yet!
Got engaged Xmas 2017. Was thinking 2020 wedding. Had engagement party in march. Booked wedding 21st April and we get married on 9th June (7weeks to pan the whole thing! I have 13 days before I become Mrs and I can relax as everything is organised..
You'll smash it
Have u booked registrar if u leave too late they can get booked up then u can't get married. U reserve it if that makes sense then pay full amount a year before
We have booked venue and paid first deposit 23 week's to and I'm allready stressing about how many people to invite as we have a budget to stick to don't want to upset anyone xx
