The Stationary

Now come the actual wedding invitations! Yay! This doesn’t mean that you have to mail them to guests just yet, but if you plan on stuffing, addressing and stamping them all by yourself, it takes time.

The Makeup Artist and Hairstylist

This is a must! Even if you are great at applying your own makeup and styling your own hair, hire the professionals, you won’t be sorry. Technically the trials don’t need to be until a month or two before your wedding day, you will want to book these at least 6 months before your wedding day, if not even closer to your engagement if they are highly desirable companies.

The Rentals

If you are looking to rent chairs, place settings, furniture, etc. for your big day, you will want to have plenty of time to coordinate the details of what you are renting.

The Wedding Rings

Finding your wedding band and your fiancé’s wedding band can take a little time, especially if you choose the custom route. Make sure to give this at least 3-5 months before your big day.
