Time Line Tuesday Part 2

Happy Tuesday!  Welcome to our second installment of "Time line Tuesday".  Please check out the first post, a time line for 10-12 months prior to the wedding, here.

By this time, you probably have the big things booked (venue, photographer, planner, etc.).  It's a great time to brainstorm decor and think about any projects you want to complete before its time to book rentals and decor in the next couple of months.

6-8 months before the wedding:
       Finalize your guest list.
       Begin researching honeymoon locations.
       Obtain or update passports if you’ll be travelling out of the country.  Inquire about vaccination requirements.
       Decide on wedding stationery and order invitations, announcements, thank-you cards, and place cards and favour tags if you will be using them.
       Select the bridesmaids’ dresses, shoes and accessories.
       Provide your bridesmaids and the parents of your child attendants with information to order attire and arrange for fittings.
       The groom should begin researching formalwear styles for himself and his groomsmen.
       Begin looking at cake ideas and meeting with bakers.  Set up tasting appointments.
       Work over your menu with your caterer and finalize the menu.
       Plan beverage and alcohol needs with the caterer.  If they are not handling alcohol, arrange for an outside vendor to provide.
       Begin researching wedding day transportation.
       Finalize reservations on rentals.
       Let your attendants know which special responsibilities they will have.
       Check requirements for a marriage license.
