TOO Soon or TOO late? How long in advance to START organizING your wedding
This is the first question brides ask themselves in order to plan their day flawlessly.
In order to be able to organize your wedding day in every detail without getting too anxious, it is recommended to start at least 12 months before the wedding date.
But the question is… where to start?
Surely the choice of a location is one of the first fundamental steps where to start.
Depending on the season in which you want to celebrate your wedding it is essential to do things on time, the risk is not to find availability in the month or on the desired date.
Together with the location you will also have to choose the church or town where the ceremony will be celebrated. Combining the two choices it is essential to avoid setting the date in the location of your dreams and then discovering that the church or the municipality are not available on that day.
Once date and location have been chosen, now is the time to look for suppliers.
If the location does not have a restaurant or personal catering included, it is time to choose one. The choice of catering is essential for the success of the event.
To begin with ask the location for advice, they will surely suggest you a list of possible catering companies, or think about the weddings you have attended, what was your experience and what you ate and you will see that the choice will be easier than expected.
The Bride’s dress
At this point it is undoubtedly time to choose the dress.
The advice is to browse magazines, websites and go to at least 3 different ateliers and try on no more than 3 dresses in each, otherwise you will get confused!
Allow the ateliers to advise you, but don’t let them overdo it! The last word is always that of the bride.
As for the grooms dress, you can wait up to 6 months before the event. Usually the men’s collection begins with the beginning of the new year, around January / February.
So there’s a bit more time for the groom!
The next step is the choice of the florist and the photographer
The main wedding actors, after of course the spouses, are flowers.
It is the florist’s task to take care of every detail of the wedding and to plan in time all the floral arrangements to be made. Also because the florist usually can’t take more than 2 weddings a day! So hurry up in booking FioriFiori.
Make sure you contact the photographer and the musicians, to ensure the best, but above all because both cannot do more than 1 wedding a day.
Of course, we still don’t have the gift of obiguity and they can’t be in 2 different places at the same time. In fact, many couples of future spouses often underestimate this problem so that they find themselves grabbing some photographers or novice DJs while the best ones have already been booked.
We then continue with the rest of the suppliers to contact for the other elements that will be added on the big day: wedding invitations, menus, children’s entertainers, honeymoon, wedding rings, fireworks, balloons and so on.
