Wedding Planning - 4/2/2023

Congratulations on your engagement! Planning a wedding is an exciting experience, but it can also be overwhelming. With so many details to consider, it's important to have a timeline that will keep you on track. At the Oklahoma Bridal Show, we specialize in helping brides plan their dream wedding by providing them with options and information. In this article, we will guide you through the timeline of planning a wedding.

12 Months Before the Wedding: Budget and Venue

The first thing you should do is set a budget for your wedding. This will help you determine how much you can spend on each aspect of your wedding. After setting a budget, you should start looking for a venue. Venues can book up quickly, so it's important to start looking early. Once you have booked your venue, you can start thinking about other details such as catering and decorations.

6-9 Months Before the Wedding: Vendors and Wedding Party

With the venue and budget set, it's time to start booking vendors. This includes your photographer, florist, and DJ or band. You should also start thinking about your wedding party. Who will be your maid of honor and bridesmaids? Who will be your best man and groomsmen? It's important to choose people who will support you throughout the wedding planning process and on your big day.

3-6 Months Before the Wedding: Invitations and Dress

As the wedding gets closer, it's time to start thinking about invitations. You should send out your invitations at least 2-3 months before the wedding. This will give your guests plenty of time to RSVP. You should also start thinking about your wedding dress. It's important to leave enough time for alterations, so make sure you order your dress well in advance.
Planning a wedding can be stressful, but with a timeline in place, it can be a lot easier. At the Oklahoma Bridal Show, we are here to help you every step of the way!
