How to Create Your Wedding Day Timelines Like a Genius

Wedding Day Timelines Matter 

Whether you’ve planned one wedding or a hundred, you surely know how important it is to create detailed timelines for your events. Weddings are complex – they have a lot of moving pieces and a whole host of different players involved. With a thorough wedding day timeline, you and your vendors have a shared game plan, so you can work together in harmony to pull off a beautiful event. On the other hand, if you don’t have a thorough timeline, you run the risk of delays, miscommunications, and unanticipated issues happening on the wedding day.
