The Wedding Planning Timeline
2 - 3 Months

2 - 3 Month Wedding Countdown

Here's the wedding planning timeline for 2 to 3 months prior to your wedding day. It is important to keep yourself fit and active at least 3 months before the wedding day.

Don't stess out about your weight, eat healthy meals and keep your meal sizes to moderate proportions. A smaller meal proportion is the key to drop those extra kilo's and stay in good shape.

Be sure to read the 6 to 12 month checklist first to ensure you have a realistic overview of what's to come and how much work is ahead of you, regardless of how manys months you have to plan your wedding.

As a bride to be, communicate affectively to your bridal party and family so things run smoothly in the lead up to the wedding. The wedding timeline was specifically created to help the bride and her bridal party plan their own wedding.

The list provided here is only a sample wedding checklist and can be changed according to your own unique wedding plans. This is merely a guide to help you with the wedding planning.

Find time to pamper and treat yourself with regular beauty treatments, do lunch, go frivolous shopping for girly things. Do what ever it takes to relax and keep happy.
