Staying on Track With Your Wedding Planning Timeline

Wedding planning can be a pretty daunting task. There’s so much to do and so much conflicting information out there about the best way to get everything done. How do you stay on track with your wedding planning timeline? We’ve got a few tips to share.

 

Enjoy the Moment

 

If you’re newly engaged, take some time to just enjoy the new level in your relationship. It’s a special time, so don’t jump into the planning too fast. The most important take-away from the wedding planning process isn’t the wedding, it’s your marriage! Take some time to invest in that and enjoy some time with each other.

 

Make A List

 

Figure out what is most important to the two of you. Do you want to have space for conversations with your guests or do you prefer to host the dance party of the century? Make a list of the things that are most important to you before booking a date or any vendors. This can be an incredibly helpful tool in keeping you focused on what’s truly important throughout the process.

 

Breakdown the Tasks

 

Now that you know what your goals are, it’s helpful to breakdown the tasks by month. Having small projects to work on helps to keep the process fun rather than stressful. Once you have the tasks broken down, share it with your bridesmaid or someone else who is supporting you. Having others assist can take the pressure off and can help give you a little push if you do start to fall behind. Our friends over at Weddingwire have a great infographic to help you break down the best timing to book your vendors. After you’ve accomplished your tasks for the month, take some time to celebrate! You’re likely working a full time job and planning an amazing wedding at the same time. That is no joke. Treat yo’ self!

Kylene and Justin | Puerto Rico Destination Wedding

We cannot believe how fast this year is going by, it’s already February! Winter is with us for another couple of months, so we’re bring back the warmth of summer with a Puerto Rico destination wedding! Part of our team had the opportunity to work with Kylene and Justin for their wedding in beautiful Puerto Rico! Matt and Emily took care of photography. Dan joined them for cinematography, and Britt was the wedding coordinator.

Now that everyone was dressed and ready for the big day, it was time to head to the beach to catch up with our groom and groomsmen! When Justin saw his glowing bride for the first time in her fabulous wedding dress, nothing could stop the huge smile that spread across his face. We were able to stick our toes in the sand and use the beautiful surroundings of Puerto Rico for a fun few shots of our bride and groom and their wedding party!

 

Now, there was nothing left to do except head to the ceremony and get married! The Hacienda Siesta Alegre was the perfect location with the most hospitable staff. Kylene and Justin said lovely personal vows in front of their closest friends and family with the sounds of the rainforest in the background. It was the perfect soundtrack to the start of their happy life together. A rainbow even made an appearance over the ceremony location! Absolute magic. Once the two lovebirds sealed their vows with a kiss, they led their guests over to the reception where the feast was unending and the dance floor was always full! Bliss Catering provided a bountiful feast, while Edgardo Ojeda and his band brought the party to life.
