9-Month Wedding Checklist

Send out the invitations.

female wedding photographerMake sure that they are tasteful and detailed and that your guests will have all of the info that they could possibly need pertaining to pre, during, and even post wedding events, if you ever have any. It would be smart for a bride to make sure that major vendors such as the female wedding photographer that you hired out are given a copy as well. It helps to know that their expectations are pretty much aligned to that of your guests. It will make all of the difference in the world and it will make things so much easier to go through with after the fact.

Get invitation details taken care of.

Exclude the gift registry info as much as possible. This isn’t the type of thing that you would want to put on there at any point in time. It would be a bit tacky. But yes, include the rest of the pertinent info in the invites so far.

Get a coordinator.

Someone needs to be on the top of things during the wedding day. This can be hard for you to do or follow through with if you are in the center of everything. You wouldn’t really be able to do much or enjoy the wedding if you would have to coordinate your own wedding. It’s possible, by all accounts, but it wouldn’t be very convenient and your attention will be divided, at best. The first thing you need to see is if your wedding planner package includes a day of coordinator. If you can afford the extra cost, then go for it. If you cannot, at least try to see if you can find someone that you can trust and really rely on to take care of that for you. Perhaps you can get your maid of honor or some other close relative or friend to get that job done. Call in a favour but make sure that that person is more than capable to follow through on things so far.

Meet up with the caterers.

The food during the wedding reception should be perfect, or at least near perfect. That can be quite tough to pull off if you aren’t looking over the wedding menu like a hawk. This isn’t the type of thing wherein you just pinpoint the dishes or the food items off of a folder or something that is fairly similar to that. The food at your wedding reception should be sensibly priced and memorable at the same time. This can be a tall order to fill if you aren’t spending enough time nitpicking through your caterers so far so you need to really bring in the big guns when you are meeting up with them to go over their menus, price list, and so on.

Taste tests are essential.

The primary or initial ones might be for free while the rest will not be. Some high end caterers don’t offer free taste tests at all and this is something that you should prepare for as well. It will be worth it in the end because booking the right caterer who is right for your budget will also technically mean that you are getting enough money on the side for a professional female wedding photographer, for example.
