A wedding planning timeline that is printable will keep you on schedule. Bridal couples who plan their weddings from beginning to end may find a printable timeline their most valuable nuptial tool.
Using a Planning Timeline
Using a wedding planning timeline is relatively simple. LoveToKnow's printable timeline has blank lines that allow you to customize your timeline for your own wedding.
A timeline is not as thorough as a complete wedding planning guide, but it is a good general place to start. In fact, you can even cut up a timeline and tape it to your calendar month-by-month, so you don't forget anything.

Benefits of Wedding Timelines
A wedding timeline is a big help when couples are planning their own wedding. The large planning guide books in a store may overwhelm couples, but not having anything organized can create chaos on the wedding day.
A timeline also helps brides and grooms prioritize the steps in planning a wedding properly. While many excited brides want to start looking for their wedding gown the minute after the question is popped, a better idea is to start scouting ceremony and reception locations first. Gowns are always available, but your dream location may be booked up to a year in advance.
Planning checklists and timelines can also help those who have volunteered to assist couples with their planning. For example, if your mom or mother-in-law offers to take care of something, you can easily scan your timeline and see what they can help with in the immediate future.
