Wedding Timeline Tips: 6-8 Months Away

When you are 6-8 Months away from your wedding day, you should consider the following:

Start working on that guest list!

This may seem early but you’ll need to know roughly how many people you want to invite to the wedding when you order your wedding invitations. The sooner you know how many guests you’re inviting, the sooner you can estimate the number of invitations you’ll need.

It helps to create an A, B, and C list of who you want to invite:

A-List guests are those you absolutely must invite.

B-List guests are the next tier of family/friends.

C-List guests are those that could make the cut if you have extra spots.
