Whether your wedding is set for early next year, or isn’t until December 2018, there are certain things you’ll need to do at various stages during the planning process.
This holds true whether you’re getting married at a local church, or are jetting off for a paradise wedding in Paphos on the beach.
Marie Claire recently shared the ultimate wedding planning checklist, covering all the big milestones you need to hit.
If you’re still a year away then you may well still be looking for venues, and trying to find suppliers for other elements of your wedding. For overseas weddings, it’s best to arrange a package that covers everything from your marriage licence and the service to a meal for you and your guests.
When you’re six months away from the big day, you should be finalising any other suppliers who aren’t included as part of the package – that might be a photographer, entertainment or decorations.
With three months to go, you should make your running order for the day, if you haven’t already, and sort out your seating plan.
In the final week before your wedding, confirming final details with your venue and wedding planner is the priority – then it’s just a case of packing your bags and making sure you don’t forget anything important before you board the plane and head to Cyprus.
If you aren’t already engaged, you never know what could happen in the coming weeks. Last month a survey by Goldsmiths jewellers found that winter is the most romantic season of the year and when proposals are most likely to happen.
