Getting Started

Congratulations—you're engaged! It's time to dip your toes into the world of wedding planning. Here's where to start.

Simplify Your Wedding Planning at Zola

11-12 Months Out

OK, getting a hang of this thing yet? We know there's a lot to do, but we got this.

8-10 Months Out

You're on a roll. Still a ways to go, but this is fun, right?

5-8 Months Out

This is the part where you have to juggle a few things at once. You're finalizing some details (invitations! attire!) and still planning others (registry! reception!). It's all coming together.

3-5 Months Out

Decision time! This is when you should make the majority of your bookings.

2 Months Out

The final stretch begins.

1 Month Out

Home stretch. It's confirm, finalize, and get ready to get married season.

Wedding Day and Beyond

Congratulations! You made it, you're married, you're done with your checklist. That was easy.
