You just got engaged and you can’t wait any longer to be married! However, you are still yearning for the wedding of your dreams. As a Boise wedding photographer, I want you to have your dream day without having to wait for it. That is why I am sharing my timeline to plan your Boise wedding in 6 months.
6 Months Before
This will be a tight timeline, so that you can be married as soon as possible without compromising your wedding style. A lot of your “to-dos” will be 6 months before. But, remember that a lot of these items are as simple as booking a reservation through a call.
Book Your Venue & Set Your Date
The first step when you plan your Boise wedding in 6 months is to set your date! However, a lot of the time your wedding date revolves around when your venue has openings. When first contacting your venue have in mind an estimate of when you want to get married, then ask for their available dates.
Book Your Boise Wedding Photographer
Once your date is set and reserved with your venue, contact all of your vendors. I suggest contacting your wedding photographer first, as other vendors like florists can book multiple clients for a day. Whereas photographers can only shoot one wedding a day. Making out schedules fill up a lot faster.
Book Your Wedding Officiant
Another wedding vendor that seems to get booked rather quickly are officiants. You can either choose an officiant that you have seen at your friends weddings, or choose someone you know who is ordained. Either way, make sure you connect with your officiant and book them early!
Wedding Dress Shopping
Finding the right dress for you may take some time. Start the search as early as you can! It is very rare that brides find exactly what they want at the first bridal boutique they visit. In addition, you will more than likely need to order your size and have alterations made.
4 Months Before
As you plan your Boise wedding in 6 months, be sure to prioritize your vendors. With that said, if any of the following vendors provide services that are super important to you, then book them sooner than 4 months prior.
- wedding planner
- hair & makeup
2 Months Before
At this point, the time will fly! Get with your wedding planner to solidify your wedding day timeline. Then reach out to each of your vendors with this time line and any last minute changes or ideas you have. As a Boise wedding photographer I love getting a look at your timeline so that I can come prepared to capture every moment!
Around this time you will also want to look into the details of getting your marriage license in the state of Idaho. Make plans to get this before your wedding day!
The last step is to tie the knot! When you decide to plan your Boise wedding in 6 months you will be standing at the alter before you know it. Looking for vendor recommendations? Reach out and ask who I love to work with!
