When do I take my engagement pictures for my wedding?

(1 - 2 months following engagement)

Enough time for save the dates of course! It is a general rule of thumb that engagement photos should be taken about 1- 2 months following the engagement. Before you can get too carried away with the wedding planning details, get those engagement pictures taken! From there, save the dates and the rest of the exciting wedding planning can commence. Engagement pictures are usually the first step following an engagement and are often the pictures that are used throughout the wedding journey.

When to book your wedding photographer?

(At least 9  - 10 months before the wedding date)

Of course a wedding photographer is an essential part to a wedding, but when is the best time to get one booked for your special day? The common suggestion for that time frame is about 9 - 10 months prior to the wedding date. Make sure to spend a good chunk of time researching when looking for your photographer. It is a special day so make sure the photographer you hire’s vision and style is similar to your own.

When do I send my wedding invitations?

6 - 8 weeks prior to the wedding)


You have the venue, date, time, guest list all set and now it is time to send out the invites. This is getting exciting! It is commonly recommended to send out the wedding invites around 6 - 8 weeks prior to the wedding date as this will allow your guests a significant time to clear their schedule, find accommodations, etc. Along with save the dates, wedding invites are a memorable part of the wedding process. Make sure you are creating your wedding invite exactly how you want it with the help of Mixbook.
