Fairytale Wedding Planning in the UK: The Wedding Supplier Checklist

The Wedding Supplier Checklist

Congratulations you're getting married!

 This will be one of the most important, special and magical days of your life. You will be left with beautiful memories that you will never forget and that you will never want to forget.

We don't actually realise all the planning that is involved to create your perfect wedding, until we start.
  Planning a wedding can be a stressful time, it can also be exciting and fun, especially if you organise everything the right way.

Booking your wedding suppliers at the right time will ensure that you have no last minute panics and you will get the suppliers that you really want.
Yes you can plan a wedding in 12 months, 6 months and even 3 months but believe me it will be stressful.
I have had many couples ask if I would put together a wedding supplier checklist to help them during their planning. There are so many different suppliers that will help you to create your perfect wedding and it can be confusing knowing when to book each one.
 Fairytale Wedding Planning in the UK wants your wedding planning to run as smooth as possible. We believe the key to making that happen is to book your suppliers at the right time, without them, there is no wedding! The earlier you book your suppliers, the less stress, more fun and free time you will have.

 Please feel free to download the checklist  located at the bottom of this post. You can then tick each supplier off the list during your planning. You don't want to forget any important suppliers that you will need to help create your special day, believe me it can happen.

Be sure to purchase a wedding diary to keep all of your suppliers contact numbers and important dates for meetings etc. Keeping track of everything is very important. 

 All the suppliers that have been listed can and some should be booked at least 12 months prior to your wedding date, leaving you plenty of time to arrange. 

Fairytale Wedding Planning in the UK have some fantastic, extremely talented and highly recommended wedding suppliers that would love to be part of your day. You can check them out by clicking on the wedding directory link located at the top of the page.

So, below is your supplier checklist..take note!


This is the time you to book your venue. Your venue is at the top of your list. Yes you can leave it later but I would advise you to book it no later than 12 months before your wedding, especially if you have your heart set on a certain venue. I have heard couples say that they wished they had booked earlier as the date they really wanted had already been booked, or even the venue was completely fully booked for the whole year and they had to choose a different venue or book for the following year. This can be very disappointing. I have known some couples to book 3 years before.

If you would like help with planning your wedding then now is also the perfect time to hire your wedding planner.
