8-10 Months Out
Now that you have had time to enjoy your engagement (hopefully) and have selected your venue, it is time to start booking vendors. Around the 8-10 month mark is when you want to secure your reception entertainment, florist, and photographer.
Weddings Unfiltered will provide you with a list of questions to ask each vendor so that you can stay on track and find the best one for you!
You’ll also want to start dress shopping, which can be a super fun and emotional activity you do with your closest and soon to be (in-laws) closest family members and bridal party. Grab some champagne, maybe some tissue and say yes to that dress!
Remember to try on all different styles even the ones you never would think. You’d be surprised what you actually choose.
