In the following articles we will continue this conversation where I break down tasks that need to be accomplished as you plan ahead of your most important day:

 a.     5-9 months prior

b.     1-2 months prior

c.      Final weeks and days

 Due to the many differences between weddings, you may find some of the reminders listed don’t really apply to you. Or, perhaps a few particular details that are part of your special plans are excluded from this list. Modify the checklist as you go along until you’re satisfied it’s tailored to your needs.

For direct personal assistance in all areas of planning your wedding, reach out to Rani at for more details.

 Until next week…
