Wedding Planning – 2 Months to go

Wedding planning checklist - what to do 2 months before your wedding

Wedding planning checklist | What to do 2 Months before your wedding 

Pretty much finalise everything. Try to do this asap so you can relax and concentrate on the finer fun little details and spend time with family and friends coming over for the wedding. 

 

MEET WITH YOUR CELEBRANT &

SIGN YOUR INTENT TO MARRY!!!

This is very important and needs to be done before 1 month prior to your wedding date. Don’t do what I did and realise that one month out and you still don’t have a celebrant…oops. There will be another form you need to sign before the ceremony can begin too so work out when you will do this.

SEND OUT INVITATIONS

Apparently, the general rule is 6-8 weeks prior – I guess this way people hopefully already know your date from Save The Date cards but they don’t lose the invite or forget to rsvp – make sure rsvp is at least 3 weeks prior – and a week before you need to know final numbers because there is always someone that’s lazy and forgets.

BOOK TRANSPORT

Unless you just need an Uber to and from the venue

FINALISE THE FOOD

Yuuum, send this to the stationery company or start designing the menus yourself for sit down weddings. For cocktail style weddings we just had a couple of pretty food menus on the bar in case anyone with dietary requirements wanted to have a squizz.

FINALISE FLOWERS

Check bouquet and boutonniere numbers.  Try not to make the boutonnieres too big like giant roses and ask for two pins to help them stay upright. I can help the boys put these on if they need. 

THE JOY OF GIVING

Decide on wedding gift Favours (or not) – you don’t need to do these and most people will leave them behind! You also don’t have to but you could make little gift packs for your bridesmaids. 

CHECK TIMES

Start to finalise timing for the day inc. speeches, MC – make sure to update your photography timeline in your online portal

BANDS

There is more to wedding bands than the standard ring. Check out Grew & Co, Natalie Marie Jewellery, Steven Anderson or Rohan Jewellers can design something custom to stand out from the crowd and make something more you

TIMING

Send the run sheet with bump in/out times to all vendors – confirm ALL bookings.

CLOSE ACCOUNTS

Pay balances on invoices – Start chipping away so they don’t all come at once.

BEAUTY

Book Beauty salon and hair appointments – eyebrows, eyelashes, tans, nails etc. Check with your bridesmaids about their tans. Aussie Bombshell in Claremont is a great natural tan.

CHILL

Book a date night with your lover and promise to go the whole night without talking wedding!
