Now is the time to book essential suppliers who often fill their calendars well in advance – your photographer, entertainment and caterers, for example. There are so many Catering options for you to choose from such as canapes from Ideal Party and of course the cake…
You’ll be looking back on your photos for years to come. You’ll relive your music choices and dancing in your wedding video, so make sure you get them right. And if there’s good food on offer, you know your guests will have a great time, so booking your caterers is another essential to get done early.

With just a few months to go, now is the time to buy those all-important wedding rings. You’ll wear these bands for the rest of your life, so ensure your choices are timeless in style so they never go out of fashion. A diamond stone ring is a beautiful option for this. You’ll also want to think about the running order of your day. You’ve probably already booked the ceremony time, but what time will the wedding breakfast, the first dance and the evening buffet begin, for example? You’ll want to include some of these details on your invitations to help guests, too.

Clear as much of your calendar as you can, because you’re about to get busy! In the final month to go, you’ll need to arrange (and then rearrange) the seating plan for your guests.

You’ll forever remember and cherish these promises, so leave plenty of time to get them just right and reflect on what you’d like to say. With four weeks to go, it’s also time to schedule your final dress fitting for you and your best girls.
