Congratulations, you’ve set your wedding date! Now, what? Planning a wedding is not a task for the faint of heart. After all, it is a big event. So, unless you can afford to hire a wedding planner, organizing the whole shindig will fall completely on your shoulders. Do not despair, though! We are here to support you and remind you of details you may not have thought of with a wedding planning timeline we put together just for you!

Not all couples plan their wedding within the same timeframe. Although most of them fall in the 16-month, 12-month and 6-month wedding planning timeline. Therefore, we compiled wedding planning checklist for all of these timelines. If your wedding is, say, 8.5 months away, you may need to merge a few tasks into a shorter timeframe to come up with your very own planning checklist! 😉

Breaking your wedding planning down into concrete deadlines will help you make important decisions in time to ensure everything gets done on time and with minimal pre-wedding stress! Find out what needs to be done and when depending on how much time you have before the big day!!

The 16-Month Wedding Planning Timeline: Taking it Easy

Sixteen months sounds like plenty of time to plan everything, but you won’t want to waste any time getting organized, as venues, caterers, DJs, and photographers book well in advance. The first thing you will want to do is to start a wedding binder. Then follow the yellow brick road outlined on this 16-month wedding planning timeline and hit your deliverables like the best of planners!

French Wedding Ideas, Trending and Fabulously Chic

Check out these awesome French wedding ideas and say ‘oui oui!’ to this 2017 wedding trend!

So, what's not to love about French weddings? Beautiful locations, all night partying and family and friends coming together over lots and lots of champagne.

So, what’s not to love about French weddings? Beautiful locations, all night partying and family and friends coming together over lots and lots of champagne.

Don’t you just love France? I mean really, who doesn’t… But having your wedding in France is a hassle and an outrageously expensive one to boot! That’s why we decided to help bring France to you! From Parisian style weddings to French country wedding theme all the way to the glamorous French Château wedding, French cuisine and a few French customs! Allons-y!

Some Typical French Wedding Traditions

Feel free to incorporate some of these French wedding usages and traditions for the extra French touch to your special day.

Switch your bridesmaids and best men for “temoins” or witnesses. This is a legal requirement for civil ceremonies which are the only way to be legally married in France. Religious ceremonies are optional.

This is a pretty cute French wedding tradition called “La noce”. Nowadays, the guests follow the couple’s car all about town making as much noise as possible.

If you want to stay within budget, adopt the cocktail reception o vin d’honneur tradition. Treat all your guests with mini-foods or canapés and drinks. The true reception dinner is held later just for family and for your closest friends.

Drageés or sugary coated almonds as wedding favors. Also a custom in Italy. A traditional treat of five white almonds symbolizing five wishes for the bride and groom. includes tag with traditional wedding wish: “Five sugared almonds for each guest to eat Reminds us that life is both bitter and sweet. Five wishes for the new husband and wife: Health, wealth, happiness, children, and long life!”

Onion soup or soupe a l’onion is at the core of French cuisine, no wonder that on the wedding day (wedding night is more accurate) it takes a special place. It is served in the early hours of the morning to help recover from a long night of partying, as French weddings tend to finish around 5-7am!

The Modern Romance of Parisian style weddings

To achieve a Parisian styled wedding the key is choosing romantic details. Keep it chic and simple, city-like and lovely vintage decor like distressed birdcages filled with fresh blooms for your centerpieces. To go the whole way on your Parisian-themed wedding, just any tableware won’t do. Make sure you use real silverware, as well as classic french porcelain plates! Add a touch of glam with flimsy gold fabrics and delicate chandeliers and voilá!

French Wedding Ideas: French Country Wedding Theme Decor

European elegance weaved in homespun comfort give birth to the rustic French wedding decor. The French Country wedding theme is soft and simple, elegant, sweet, warm, and loving. It has gorgeous details such as wooden reception tables, freshly cut flowers, olive branches natural burlap, large hurricane candles, tea lights, and signage calligraphed in French. Of course, you score bonus points if the venue has brick walls, red tiled roofs and old-style French furniture.

Glamorous French Château Weddings

If you are a bride that dreams of a fairytale wedding, nothing beats French Château weddings! If you want to incorporate this look into your wedding but are missing the Château, you can still add some details to make your fairytale come true. Decorate the backs of your chairs with bows, sashes, flowers, or faux jewels. Rich reds, gold and browns will enhance the warm and rustic look of a château-themed wedding. Think candlesticks, floral tapestries on walls or as table runners to finish the look.

French wedding delicacies: Madeleines, Macarons, and More!

I’m biased on this one, I must admit… I love madeleines, and if I could eat them every day you’d never see me out of the nearest bakery again! These delicious baked goods are absolutely essential to any French-themed wedding and they scream sophistication! And while you’re at it, make sure you serve macarons as well – this increasingly popular and delicious little treats are a staple for anything French-inspired!

A French Wedding Tradition: Champagne Fountains

Ohhh yes! No French wedding can officially hold that title without a champagne fountain. The champagne is poured into the top glass and from there fills all the glasses below. Avoid the flutes… Aside from being a logistical nightmare, they’re a relatively recent addition to the table. Opt instead for the classic, elegant and always reliable coupe glasses!

French Wedding Ideas That Will Get You Hooked: Profiteroles o Croquembouche

Yes, yes, this could fit in the French baked goods recommendation above, but we felt this merited it’s very own honorable mention. If you’ve ever had a profiterole you’d know why! Those delicious little pastries are comparable to eclairs: drizzled in chocolate, these sweet dough balls are filled with either cheese or cream and are totally edible in one bite or less! You can even make a cake by piling them up on top of one another in a circular pyramid and then drizzling melted chocolate onto the entire thing. It’s the traditional French wedding cake and it’s guaranteed to get your guests hooked – so use with care!

Cheese and Charcuterie

Last but not least, this wouldn’t be a French event without an abundant variety of cheeses and meats. Instead of finger-foods and hors-d’oeuvres, go for a large platter of charcuterie. For some extra brownie points, try to pair the platter with corresponding wines – something even the snobbiest of Parisians will applaud you for!

Wedding macarons and French macarons: their origin

The Macaron is a simple cookie born in Italy in 1533, at the time of the wedding between Catherine de Medicis and the Duc d’Orleans who later became king of France in 1547 as Henry II. This round cookie was made of almond powder, egg whites and sugar.

Come the 20th century and a French pastry maker called Pierre Desfontaines (grandson of Louis Ernest Laduree from the famous pastry salon at Rue de Royale in Paris) decides to add a chocolate ganache between two of the macaron cookies. This new sandwich looking delicacy is called the “French macaron”

The macaron and French macaron cookie evolved when many more delicious flavors, colors, fillings and shapes were added by expert pastry chefs. Now that we covered a bit of the macaron history and clarified its meaning, let’s get ready to munch on these 30 ideas for wedding macarons.

Blush makes it easy to incorporate coral and silver into the wedding decor to pick it up a notch. Meanwhile, a pale pink helps add love and sweetness to a blush colored wedding. Like many other shades of pink, blush can create a romantic atmosphere and bring happiness to the new couple through the exacerbation of their feelings of love.

To achieve a very upscale look within budget constraints and touch of creativity, add black and gold to your blush wedding decor: centerpieces, chair wraps, table runners and photo booth backgrounds, and the list can go on and on. Remember to add blush food – cakes, champagne, candies and sweets! They will account for an unforgettable dessert bar at your upscale and impossibly romantic blush wedding!

For a sparklingly romantic pink blush themed wedding, combine pink blush with sequined gold touches – very 2016! Bring in the pink blush roses and decorate your tables, chairs, cake, centerpieces and even the floor while you’re at it.

Blush Wedding Attire: Ethereal and Romantic

If you are an avant-garde bride that wants to break with the tradition of the white wedding dress, consider a beautiful blush gown with lots of feminine details. You may even keep the white dress and accessorize it with a pink blush sash, or wear a blush wedding dress to your civil ceremony.

A touch of blush on the groom’s boutonniere or tie, on the bridesmaids’ dresses or on your very own bridal bouquet can help you turn your reception into “the” blush wedding of the year!
