  • Your wedding plans are really taking shape. Most of your vendors are booked, your ceremony is coming together, and you feel like you're well on your way to creating a wedding that totally reflects who you are and what’s important to you.

  • You’re now looking for inspiration and practical guidance and ideas to tie all the loose ends together... without falling down the Pinterest rabbit hole, and without the whole process taking over your life!

Your wedding plans are really taking shape - well done you!

First thing’s first for this stage, if you haven’t already downloaded it, head to the RESOURCES section and grab our ‘8 weeks to go action plan’. Then see below for all the action steps you need to take at this stage.

As always, if you have any questions, ask me inside the Facebook group and I’ll get them answered!

Action steps:

  • If you're not using a wedding planner, have you considered a Day-Of Planner, or a team of organised and trusted friends to take charge of everything on your Big Day? If you need a recommendation for a Day-Of Planner please email emily@smashingtheglass.com

  • Think about ways to involve those near and dear to you, in your Big Day

  • Send out your invitations

  • Choose your cake if you are having one

  • Choose your veil and accessories

  • Consider who you may want or need to decorate your wedding space

  • Create your table plan

  • Think about your chuppah canopy design (see this page for inspo)

  • Order your kippot and on-the-day stationery

  • Consider the spiritual side of  your wedding and how you want your wedding to feel (it's not all about the looks! (see our resource for this in Jewish Wedding Checklists + Resources)

  • Create a wedding program for your guests

  • Decide whether or not you're making a speech (see this to help you make a decision).

  • Decide whether or not you want or need production at your wedding (see 4th video down)

  • Start thinking about a wedding hashtag (we can help you inside the Facebook group !)
