A Complete Guide to Planning Your Dream Wedding

As a wedding photographer serving couples in Arkansas with stunning and elegant photographs, we at Thino Photography understand the importance of capturing every moment of your special day. But before we can help you create beautiful memories, there are many details to consider to ensure your wedding day goes off without a hitch.

12-18 Months Before the Big Day

Start by establishing a budget, making a rough guest list, and scouting potential venues. Research wedding photographers, videographers, and other vendors for the big day, and begin your search for the perfect dress or tuxedo.

9-12 Months Before the Big Day

Book your venue, set a date, and hire your wedding photographer – like us at Thino Photography. Start thinking about the smaller details of your wedding, such as flowers, cake, and transportation. Finalize your guest list and order your save-the-dates.

6-9 Months Before the Big Day

Start planning your honeymoon and book your officiant. Arrange rentals such as chairs, tables, and decor, and begin shopping for bridesmaid dresses and groomsmen attire. Create a wedding website and registry, and begin planning your rehearsal dinner.

3-6 Months Before the Big Day

Send out invitations, and have fittings for your wedding attire. Plan your bachelor/bachelorette parties and finalize your menu. Consider your music and entertainment options for the wedding day, and begin any necessary pre-marriage counseling.

1-3 Months Before the Big Day

Apply for your marriage license, finalize your seating chart, and purchase wedding bands. Confirm all details with your vendors, and create a day-of timeline for your wedding party. Have your final dress fittings, and consider writing your vows.
