I want to ask you about your wedding planning timeline - I'm curious to know how long before the wedding you crossed various planning tasks off your to-do list, or when you're planning to have the tasks finished. So play along to have some fun comparing timelines, while sharing your advice with those who are still building their own!

How long before your wedding did you have your bachelor or bachelorette party? I hope you left yourself plenty of time to recover before the big day - hehe!

    Mine was, typically destination ones are a week. Some are a weekend, some are one night. It depends on what the bridal party chooses Smiley smile

    No bachelor party for us. Buck & Buck if that counts was 2 months prior to the wedding.

    My FH had his bachelor party about 5 months out, the same weekend as my bridal shower. They wanted to do camping, so they had to go in September, before the weather turned. My wedding is less than 4 weeks away and my sisters (MOH & bridesmaid) have not planned anything as far as I'm concerned yet... Super disappointing really.

    Mine is planned for 1 month before the wedding. Then we might do something the weekend before or just combine with the bridal shower that same weekend for something that all of my friends/family can come to because the bachelorette is in Vancouver.

    We are having a destination bachelorette so we are having it 10 months before the wedding because it's going to be a week long event and I can't take that much time off closer to the wedding because I will be so busy

    My MOH planned mine the weekend before the wedding. At first I wasn't sure about that weekend (if I had anything last minute to take care of), but it worked out great!


    I did also have from the Wednesday onwards off before the wedding.

    I’m not sure when this is planned for. But, it’ll be less than four months since we’re almost at the four month mark!

    We will likely have them around a month before the wedding - no definite date set yet but ballpark is mid-July

    I'm doing mine about 7 weeks in advance of the wedding. Its mainly an excuse to spend time with my friends all together away from the boys. We're not doing anything TOO fancy but I'm really excited.

    Mine will be in mid-August since we thought it would be fun to do it in the summer. So, two months before the wedding.

    I don't have a wedding party and most of my close girlfriends don't live in the same province, so we'll mostly likely skip that all together. Though nothing is set in stone, we'll see what actually unfolds.

    We aren't having them either as we just don't have the time and our wedding party all lives out of town, except for one.

    With us living so far away from all our friends and family we probably will not have them.
