Your Wedding Timetable
Careful planning will enable you to truly enjoy every moment of your Wedding Day. Arrangements for a large, formal wedding should ideally begin at least eight to twelve months in advance. However, many beautiful weddings are put together in a considerably less amount of time. The important thing is to follow a timetable and allow contracted suppliers, such as Mannino's Tux and Tails, to help you in their selected fields of expertise. Share the planning duties with your fiancÚ, your family, and your attendants - much of the fun is doing it together!
