Congratulations on your engagement! Now that all the champagne has been popped and glasses clinked, it is time to start planning for your big day. Follow below as Alexandra Madison Weddings helps to walk you through the ideal planning timeline overview for leading up to your wedding day…
12 Months Out
When booking with Alexandra Madison Weddings, the 12-month mark is when the full-planning package will begin! This planning will be fun and exciting! One important task to include in your planning for this month is creating your guest list. You will also want to gather addresses for those guests to streamline that process. Budget personalization is another big to-do. Designating how much you and your significant other are willing to spend on each of your desired vendors. And it isn’t too early to start touring venues and selecting your date! Initial venue walk throughs can help a lot in this stage to help solidify your vision. Lastly, dress shopping with your “I do” crew can be a fun way to kick off all the planning festivities!
8 Months Out
Our partial planning package begins at this stage! The 8-month mark is when you want to lock in all of your vendors. At this time, discussions about layout and timeline for your big day will begin. Florals will also be a part of the conversation at 8-months. We recommend sending your “Save the Dates” now too! Finally, we recommend going to a rental walk through and a venue walk through. The rental walk through will allow you to walk through the showroom in order to select chairs and linens that best align with your vision.
6 Months Out
Half way through the planning process...Wooohooo! At this point you will want to review and order your invitations. Discussions about design concepts will also begin. This is the time to wrap up any last minute vendor bookings!
4 Months Out
This is when you will want to mail your invitations and attend a special details meeting with the AMW team to decide on custom order pieces such as koozies, acrylic bar signs, custom cups, napkins, etc! These specialty pieces can really help to tie a beautiful bow on your wedding day!
1 Month Mark
With only one month separating you and your big day, you will want to do a final review of your vendor guide and timeline made specially by the AMW team. A final walk through can be a great way to ease those one-month jitters and solidify your vision!
