𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐎𝐫𝐝𝐞𝐫 𝐌𝐚𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐬 𝘞𝘩𝘦𝘯 𝘛𝘰 𝘉𝘰𝘰𝘬 𝘞𝘩𝘢𝘵 Always book the vendors who cannot take on more than one wedding first. Other vendors can accommodate multiple events on a single day and won’t need as much advanced notice. THE FIRSTS 𝗪𝐞𝐝𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐏𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐫 - Book your Wedding Planner first! That way you get the most out of their service and they can be with you throughout the entire process! 𝐕𝐞𝐧𝐮𝐞 - Popular venues book 1-3 years out, depending. So if you have your heart set on a venue, the sooner you book the better. That way you have the best chance at securing your chosen date! 𝐏𝐡𝐨𝐭𝐨𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐩𝐡𝐞𝐫 - Not only is this important to book early, so you can get started on engagement pictures, but like venues, photographer's schedules can fill up fast! So take your time and research which photographer’s style best fits you. But as soon as you find one you like, book them! 𝐃𝐉/𝐑𝐞𝐜𝐞𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐄𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐭𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 - Book at least 9 months in advance. Good, quality DJs book up fast so if you want your first pick don’t hesitate! A good DJ can make or break your reception. THE NEXTS 𝐅𝐥𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐭 - Ideally you can wait until 5-6 months before your wedding to book your florist. By then you should have a decent idea of colors, a theme, and the overall vision of what you want your big day to be like! 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐂𝐚𝐤𝐞 - You should look to hire your cake designer around the same time you find your florist! And like the flowers you should have had plenty of time to get a clearer vision of the details so your cake seamlessly fits into your day! 𝐈𝐧𝐯𝐢𝐭𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 - Nowadays it takes 2–3 weeks to get invitations printed. And typically invitations are sent out 6-8 weeks prior to the wedding. So 3-4 months before your big day is when you should be focusing on invitations. 𝐓𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐬𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 - Most couples book their wedding buses or limos 3 months in advance. However if you are getting married in May or June you may want to look at booking sooner as you are competing with proms and graduations!
