How long does planning a wedding take?

A wedding plans takes time. It is by no means exceptional to spend more than a year engaged to be for the wedding day dawns. Below, we discuss the most important things that need to be arranged before the wedding.

How soon can you get married?

If you want to get married as soon as possible today, it will take at least two weeks. This is because the betrothal takes two weeks.

We had the opportunity to experience this ourselves at a wedding. It was almost a complete wedding. Even the wedding dress had been arranged. The only thing not arranged were the wedding rings, which the bride and groom had from a toy machine.

If you want to be well ahead of time, these are the times you can stick to:

Putting on wedding dress

Wedding dress purchase

Picking a wedding dress do you minimum 10 months for your wedding day. This sounds like an ample timeframe, but it is necessary to order your dream dress made-to-measure and (possibly) altered. If you pick a dress last-minute, you have less choice, fewer sizes and no room for alterations.

Picking a wedding suit

The groom also needs a nice outfit. Take plenty of time for this too, and choose the suit at least 7 months before the wedding so that the suit can be custom ordered at your wedding plans

Arrange wedding location

You also book the wedding venue at least 12 to 7 months before the big day arrives. The longer you wait, the more likely it is that your chosen venue will already be booked on that day. For this reason, booking a wedding venue is one of the first things you arrange before the big day.

Sending invitations

Send the invitations immediately after fixing the wedding location. The earlier you send out the invitations, the more people can attend the party. It will also give you a quick idea of how many guests will be coming.

Book wedding photographer

A wedding photographer book as soon as possible. Keep at least 7 months in advance to ensure that the photographer has space in his or her calendar. If you look for shorter notice, there is a greater chance that the most experienced wedding photographers will be fully booked.

Bridal make-up

Hair and make-up

On the wedding day you want to look sparkling. Therefore, look for a good make-up artist and hairdresser in time. Plan at least 5 months schedule an appointment before the big day. You can also schedule a trial appointment to get acquainted with the services offered by the hairdresser or make-up artist. This will ensure that there is a style in between that you like. It is also best for the groom to schedule a hairdressing appointment as soon as possible.

You often book food and drinks at the wedding venue. However, if you are having a wedding on your own property or in a forest, then you do book catering. Do this about 6 months in advance so you can choose from several catering companies.

Bridal bouquet soft colours


A wedding involves flowers. Not only for the bridal bouquet, but also as accessories at the altar or on the tables. This too you arrange such 3 to 4 months in advance.

Wedding cake

A wedding cake from a pastry chef you order 8 to 9 months for the wedding day. You also plan a tasting session where you taste different cake flavours to find out which flavours you want to incorporate into the cake.
