a tee time

Published on February 28th, 2020

Getting engaged is one of the most exciting parts of many people’s lives. However, after the excitement and the fun surrounding the engagement is over, a major project ensues. Planning a wedding ceremony and one of the best wedding receptions near Bolingbrook can be very stressful at times. Here are some of the things you can check off your wedding planning checklist well in advance.

12 Months Out


At this time, it’s a good idea to determine your budget, as you cannot really begin planning your wedding until you know how much money you have to spend. Once you have your budget, it’s a good idea to determine your priorities. Where do you want to allocate more money? What is important to you?


Another thing you can get on top of early in the game is your guest list. If you’re going to throw one of the best wedding receptions near Bolingbrook, chances are, you’re going to have to pick and choose who you can invite. While we wish we could invite anyone and everyone, it’s a good idea to get a grasp on how many people you can invite within your budget.

Say “Yes” to the Dress

If you want to avoid any rush fees for your dress, it’s a good idea to purchase your wedding dress at least 9 months before your wedding. Many brides choose to begin shopping for their dress more than 9 months out, but the decision should be made before you have to incur any rush fees!

Send Save the Dates

Many of your family and friends may already know, but Save the Dates are a good way to make it official. Get your photo and a reminder on their fridge, and remember, anyone who receives a Save the Date must get an invite!
