You are probably running around frantically by now and feel as though it will never end. There are only 60 days to the big day and there is so much to do! If you have followed the wedding planning guide this far, then things should not be as hectic (well, planning wise). With only two months left, your to-do list is small and manageable.
So what do you take care of two months before the big day?
Follow-Up with Vendors
Now is the time to follow-up with your caterer, florist, photographer, cake decorator, etc. Confirm order details, delivery times and ensure that you and your vendors are on the same page when it comes to your big day. Be sure to go over every detail that is written in your notes with what is on their orders. That way you cannot worry that something will go wrong.
Meet Up with Your Photographer
Two months before the big day you should meet with your photographer. This is the meeting where you will finalize details of the big day. You should visit the venue location and go over where photos will take place, poses, and get their professional advice on any decorations or props that will be needed in order to get the optimum photos for your wedding.
Review the Entertainment and Music
Now is the time to review the music and entertainment selections you have made. Believe it or not, most couples are surprised to find that the music they chose to walk down the aisle in they no longer like. Therefore you will want to make sure that the music you chose awhile ago still suits your tastes.
Out They Go!
Two months prior to the wedding day is the customary time to mail out your wedding invitations. Make sure your RSVP cut-off is three weeks prior to the reception. Encourage your guests to RSVP by stating food and beverages will only be supplied to those who RSVP. Nothing says “RSVP” like food.
Now is the time to host the bachelorette and bachelor parties. This is a time for the couple to let loose with their friends and celebrate the new stage they are entering in their lives.
About two months prior to the big day, most happy couples will submit their wedding announcements to the local paper. Just write up a small piece and give it over to your local paper. Just remember that most papers charge per line. Therefore the longer your abstract, the larger the bill.
