Wedding preparations calendar

Your wedding and reception is one of the most important endeavours you will take on in your whole life – and there is quite the number of things to take care about in the process, all necessary for your special days to be incredible. A wedding planning timeline is a very important thing to have – it will let you keep track of everything that you need to remember.

The long, exhausting list of pre-wedding duties can be a bit of a headache, even with a solid wedding planning timeline. We hope however that it will help you navigate this. Remember not to let any imperfections ruin your day! I also invite you to cooperate with WINSA wedding planners in either wedding planning, wedding day coordination or just to prepare a bespoke wedding planning timeline.

Be Inspired,
