It’s that time of year when love is in the air. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and annually around 8%-10% of marriage proposals occur on February 14 each year with as many as 6 million couples becoming engaged. Whether it’s a spur of the moment ask or a thoroughly orchestrated wedding proposal, getting married seems to be on our minds this time of year. And from the proposal to wedding transportation, it’s never too early to start planning ahead.

Wedding Planning Checklist

Planning your wedding starts, at least, a year ahead of schedule. A typical checklist should include:

  • 1 year or more away – Determining a budget
  • 12 months – Finding a venue
  • 11 months – Hiring vendors and wedding transportation
  • 9 months – Buying your wedding dress
  • 5 months – Booking a honeymoon
  • 2 months – Sending invites
  • 1 month – Create the seating chart
  • 1 week away – Final dress fitting

It’s important to remember to book wedding vendors and wedding transportation in Charleston, at least, eleven months before the wedding date. The best vendors tend to book up quickly, so if you’re looking for a night to remember, it’s best to make these decisions early. Besides transportation services, vendors include your photographer, band or DJ, and videographer.

It’s amazing that it all starts with the perfect proposal!
