Generally, you'll want to start planning your wedding a few weeks after your engagement. The goal is to send wedding invitations about two months before your wedding, so your guests have time to prepare and RSVP. If you give yourself a year or longer to plan your wedding, you can move at a slower, more relaxed pace, and you'll enjoy more options when it comes to choosing vendors. According to The Knot 2019 Real Weddings Study, most couples are engaged for 15 months, which leaves time to enjoy the engagement for a few months before jumping into wedding planning.
There are no set rules when it comes to planning your special day, but use the following timeline to guide your wedding planning making adjustments as you need. If you need more tips along the way on how to plan your wedding, check out our blog or contact us at Alexandra's Boutique.
