The Ultimate Wedding Planning Timeline!

This week Jason and I celebrated our one year anniversary, which means we're now less than a year away from our wedding!  While this makes me incredibly excited (I might have squealed for a second...) it also makes me more than a bit nervous.  Only a year until our wedding??  How could we possibly get everything done?  What needs to be tackled first?  What do I do??  But luckily, being the organized bride-to-be that I am, I'd already compiled a list of tasks to get done before the wedding a couple of weeks after our engagement.  Once I'd listed everything that came to mind I headed to Pinterest and searched for "wedding planning timeline".  I then proceeded to repin every search result and add anything I'd missed to my list.  By the end of a couple of hours I had a pretty comprehensive list, and I realized that other engaged couples may benefit from it!  So here it is, the ultimate wedding planning timeline to keep you organized right up until your big day!

7 Ways Pinterest is the Best Wedding Planning Tool on the Internet!

Wedding planning is much harder than I thought.  MUCH.  Let me clarify:  I never expected it to be easy.  But MAN is there a lot to do!  I was never someone who spent much time thinking about my wedding, and by extension, wedding planning.  I hadn't dreamt of my dress, picked out a location, or imagined the reception.  Until I joined Pinterest, that is.  After a few months resisting the urge to create a wedding board and letting all of the beautiful pictures float away, un-pinned, into the abyss, never to be retrieved... I gave in.  How could I not?  For the first time in my life I was thinking about what my possible-eventual-hypothetical wedding might be like, and it was REALLY fun.  But I didn't have a fiancé, or even a serious boyfriend, so I tried to keep the crazy pinning lust to a minimum.  Because who wants to date a girl with 3,000 pins on her wedding board?
