Organised Bride Calendar Timeline Checklist

Planning a wedding is a pretty big job and I remember that when I got married, the thought of having to plan a whole wedding seemed like a lot of work! If you want to stay organised and on top of things, then you will love today’s post as I have made an Organised Bride Calendar Timeline Checklist for you, and it is going to make the process of planning your wedding super easy!

I have broken the process down into a simple  step by step guide, mapped out onto a suggested timeline which you can tick off as you go. It may seem like there are a lot of jobs to begin with, but this will avoid having a build up of jobs toward the end of your planning, and trust me – you need to save that precious time for any last minute jobs that might pop up. Sticking to a schedule will save you time and stress in the long run, especially the closer you get to your big day.

So I hope you enjoy!
