Wedding Day Timeline Schedule Example

Updated: Jan 3, 2022

Didn't hire a planner? That's OK!

Every dollar counts! and maybe we want to be extra part of your wedding planning because you just feel more comfortable taking the lead and making sure everything gets done exactly how you want it. There are various ways to save money on your wedding planning journey, and yes, one way is to plan it all yourself! But you definitely should make sure to enjoy your wedding day and either hire a Day of Coordinator or ask a friend or colleague to help manage your timeline!

Below is an example of a traditional yet non- religious Latino wedding timeline but can fit all weddings. Feel free to use it and make it your own! Remember, there are traditional ways of doing a wedding. But ultimately, it's you and your fiancé's big day! and you CAN do WHATEVER you want!

You can also access the Google Doc Template HERE. Be sure to MAKE A COPY and edit as needed.
