Does the summer heat have you dreaming of cooler temperatures? In fact, have you decided that a fall wedding is right for you? If so, autumn will be here before you know it. And whether you’re planning to wed later this year, or next, now is actually a great time to get some serious fall wedding planning completed. From hiring your wedding venue and other important vendors to choosing colors and planning your menu, there is a lot you can do to get ready for your upcoming wedding. There are plenty of great ideas for autumnal celebrations, and sorting through them can certainly be a fun way to help beat the heat this summer!
It’s Never Too Soon to Get Started!
Many couples are surprised by just how early it is often necessary to begin serious wedding planning. Most wedding timelines are based on at least a 12-month planning period. That’s not to say it is impossible to work with a tighter timeframe. But if you do have the luxury of time, put it to good use by making big decisions early on.
Choosing a wedding venue and a date can go a long way in helping the other decisions come together. So don’t hesitate to lock in these big decisions a year or more from your prospective wedding date.
And do your guests a huge favor, by sending out save-the-dates at least six months before you plan to wed, that way they can mark their calendars and begin making travel arrangements to attend your big day!
