The day you have always dreamed of is right around the corner.  If you are like most newly engaged couples, you have dreamed of this day since you were little.  But where to begin...There is so much to plan and so many preparations to make.  We want your day to be as stress free as possible.  Below you will find a wedding planning timetable...We hope this will help you with some of your preparations.  Remember it's never to early to plan.  Get a binder, buy a planner, go to Walmart and pick up a composition book, start a Pinterest board and begin jotting down/pinning ideas.  Contact your vendors early.  Most book months, if not a year or two in advance, so get your date reserved.  Some months are prime months for weddings/events and there are only so many Saturday evenings in one month.  Some offer various financing options and the further in advance you plan the more time you have to budget for exactly what you want.  And remember, enjoy this journey together.  Plan together.  And remember, this is your special day.  Live every minute of this adventure to the fullest.  We are here to help with your planning and glad to answer any questions that you may have.
