A wedding is a very important event and it is obvious that you can’t plan it in a day. It takes a lot of time, patience, ideas and strategies for a wedding to be perfect.

After deciding to get married starts the real adventure of your life. You will face a carousel of decisions, shopping and budgets. If you want your wedding day to go smoothly, you need a wedding checklist timeline, so that you can plan each detail in advance and make sure you have everything done for your big day.
