As you start to finalize your vendors it can be a bit daunting to think through the timeline. There are a lot of moving parts, but we can assure you that it's easier than you think! On top of that, we have a great in-house Coordinator that starts working with you 3 months prior to the wedding to help with this task.
But before you talk to our coordinator, we wanted to share a sample timeline with you. Obviously, some things can be tweaked, but this is a great template to reference!
