FROM TIMELINES & WALKTHROUGHS TO VENDOR SETUPS AND GUESTS ISSUES YOU'LL LEARN HOW TO HANDLE THE FINAL STAGES OF YOUR PLANNING SO YOU CAN STAY SANE AND STOP WORRYING WHETHER YOU HAVE EVERYTHING READY FOR THE BIG DAY!
When you have the guidance of someone that's done this a few hundred times, you can put your worries aside and truly enjoy the final months of your engagement.
So, I’ve compiled everything I’ve learned after planning over 250 weddings in the last 11-years to give you the most comprehensive, effective and proven three month countdown guide out there to help you move through the final stages of your planning so you don't miss a single important detail.
You’re worried that your wedding day isn’t going to go as planned, because holy sh&t, you've never done this before!!
You’re feeling overwhelmed by keeping track of all the big details, not to mention all the tiny details that still have to fall into place and did you account for all those little details?
You’re getting anxious because you know there are a million things to do, but you're not even sure what all those million things are.
Maybe you already have a headache thinking about making sure the catering, music, wedding party, hair & makeup stylist, officiant and everyone else has what they need, knows where they need to be and when so your day runs smoothly.
It’s going to be one of the most memorable (and expensive) days of your entire life.
But the reality is, it’s hard to nail something you’ve never done before.
On top of all the excitement and emotions, your vendors are starting to ask you million questions. Big bills are coming due, you still have DIY projects to finish, your RSVPs are due but WHY THE F have so many people not responded. On top of this you're still working your full-time job and OMG you've never done this before.

I’ve provided a printable/editable course outline for you to start your Bridal Method bible, so to speak. The choice is yours, but you don’t need a printer. You could print all the sheets and create your own binder, or just edit the course along the way on your computer or tablet and keep everything digital. Whatever works best for you.
Forever, ….but let’s hope you don’t need it that long! NearlyWed is a digital download, once you purchase you will have your own copy sitting pretty on your desktop for the duration of your planning.
This is such a great question!! If your coordinator's nailing down your timeline, having a final walkthrough with you, syncing up with your vendors to ensure everything is accounted for and everyone is scheduled, and double-checking all your planning details, then you might not need NearlyWed.
But here’s the deal: Nearlywed is a lifesaver for couples flying solo in the final stretch. If you're managing the show on your own, Nearlywed is your go-to. It's like having a virtual planner in your pocket, ensuring you've got everything lined up perfectly for your big day. Think of it as your wedding day wingman – making sure no detail is overlooked and everything runs smoothly!
I DON'T LIVE IN THE U.S, IS TBM RIGHT FOR ME?
This is one of the biggest questions that I get. NearlyWed is for anyone planning in any state inside the US or Canada.

Plus, I am a professional wedding planner by trade. I do this literally every single day. Some of the templates and guides you’ll find searching Google are not written by planners. And this scares the heck out of me for all the brides out there because they can sometimes do more harm than good based upon what I’ve seen.
Large wedding sites do not provide cohesive planning. It’s a mix of a million ways you could plan your wedding and it gets so darn confusing! I’ve gotten a lot of clients because of this honestly, they get overwhelmed by what they find online and need help. So now, that help is packaged into The Bridal Method. TBM is written in a way that you can easily follow along and plan in steps outlined by one person, so you aren’t getting a mix of information and timelines are crystal clear.
