12 Months or More Before Your Wedding Day
If you’ve planned ahead and selected a wedding date that is 12 or more months away, then your fall wedding checklist will include deciding a budget, the style of your wedding and who will be in your wedding party. It is also the time to consider buying wedding insurance. This is an especially good idea for fall weddings since the season’s weather can be unpredictable. At 12 months or more out, start searching for ceremony and wedding reception venues.

10 to 11 Months Before the Big Day
When you’re 10 to 11 months before the big day, book your venues and pick out your bridal party attire. If you’re planning to have the wedding or your reception in a cooler area, plan the attire accordingly. For instance, select a heavier fabric for the bridesmaid dresses or include pashminas or boleros so that everyone stays warm. Fall weddings also give you the option of choosing dresses in deep jewel tones or shimmery metallics.

The 4 to 5 Month Point
The 4 to 5-month point is the time to make reservations for your honeymoon and order your wedding cake. Ask the baker to create a fall cake decorated with leaves, flowers in autumn shades or with something like gold foil. At 4 to 5 months before your wedding day, start thinking about the playlist that you want the DJ or band to play. This is also when you want to finalize your wedding day guest list.

2 to 3 Months Before the Wedding
Once you’re just 2 to 3 months away from one of the most important days of your life, order toasting flutes for that Martinelli's and gather the decorations. Since your big day is happening in the fall, your decoration choices can be fun and seasonal. Go with pumpkins, fall leaves or tree branches.

The Week Before
The week before your wedding day, make sure that all of the vendors and service providers have been paid. Check with your photographer and videographer to arrange the type of images that you want. Confirm that you have spa reservations for you and the members of your bridal party. Call the baker about the cake and do a thorough once over of your wedding attire.
