Checklist Items That Can Wait

After celebrating your engagement and the wedding planning begins, suddenly you realize how many details there are to cover. It can be overwhelming. While some items need to be checked off right away, others can be put on hold. Here are a few things that can wait for a later date.

Dress Shopping

Every bride is eager to get out and try on wedding dresses. After all, who doesn’t want to feel like a princess? But hold off, there are more pressing matters that need your attention in the beginning. Dress shopping can wait six to eight months prior to your wedding date. This allows plenty of time for fittings, alterations, shipping, and final touches…don’t worry. If you are eager to daydream, find a collection of bridal magazines and start considering your must-haves for the perfect ensemble anytime!

Music Selections

While it is a good idea to select a band or a DJ in order for them to hold your date, there is no need to panic over music selections right away. Write down any songs your have in mind for your first dance or the perfect father-daughter moment. There is no need to spend hours making music selections in the beginning. Music professionals have plenty of suggestions with the ability to put a playlist together close to your wedding date. Allow time to get inspired by looking online, attending weddings, or asking friends for now.

Seating Charts

You may already have an idea of who clicks well together and who needs to be seated on the opposite side of the room. These considerations are a great start.  But hold off on a seating chart until you begin receiving your RSVP cards in the mail. It can be a tedious process to dive into, especially if you are unsure about the final guest list. For now, consider putting together your invitations instead. When the time is right to finalize the seating chart, here is a guide to get you started: https://edmundswasteremoval.com/tips-creating-seating-chart/

The Honeymoon

OK, we know. It is nearly impossible to think about other things when you have a vacation with your sweetheart on the horizon. Typically honeymoon plans need to be organized six months in advance. For now, talk about your dream honeymoon together and just start brainstorming ideas to get you on the same page. Leave the travel planning to flight purchases until a later date.
