We came across this blog and had to share it! This handy tool will help keep your wedding planning organised within a chronological order with how soon you should book your wedding suppliers and in which order. Of course, there really is no right or wrong to this, however there are some big decisions such as your venue, caterers, photographer, entertainment and florist that really should be organised as your top priorities. After all, everything you do in terms of the style of the day you want is set by your venue. For example, if you choose an oversea wedding in Ibiza, you won’t want a winter style wedding dress suit for a London winter wedding in a Georgian Townhouse!
