DIY | "Day of" Timeline

<< Back to DIY

Since posting this out on the internet, this ‘day of’ timeline has been featured on theknot.com!

Tools:

  • Microsoft Word Template (This template has been downloaded times.)
    • The template is a compressed .zip file. Click here for instructions to extract.
  • Lavender metallic cardstock paper from paperandmore.com
  • Fiskars rotary cutter with straight blade
  • Corner punch
  • Sarah VolanteDB Normal font if you want to use the same font I have shown below. If you don’t know how to install fonts onto your computer, head here.

I am sending out "Day Of" timelines with the rehearsal party invitations. Since we have a rather unique ceremony, I thought it would help everyone. Unique? Why? Well, the bridal party is changing from traditional clothing to reception clothing with us and we’re traveling 1.5 hrs between the ceremonies. It’s going to be a LONG day!

On the back of each timeline, each bridal party member will have a "Special Tasks" list of their, well, special tasks on that day. This is the layout – very clean and clear so they just focus on what’s happening. You can click to enlarge.

I designed it in Microsoft Word and positioned the tables to be able to print the individual tasks on the back. We don’t have a coordinator and since our families are flying and driving into each respective parent’s homes, our bridal party is helping us out with a lot that day. This is an example of what the Maid of Honor’s card looks like on the back.

They were printed on the same lavender metallic paper I used for the invitation enclosures.

I’ve received requests for the template, so you can help yourself by downloading the zip file here! DIY-ing to save money can be stressful at times, so hopefully this helps make your projects a little easier.
