Creating Your Own Wedding Planning Checklist

With all of the things that have to be taken care of to ensure a special and memorable wedding day, the planning process can quickly become stressful and overwhelming. A good way to make it less so is to create a wedding checklist, which is a detailed list of everything that needs to be done before the big day. As well as listing what needs to be taken care of, it is also helpful to prioritize the list and state the dates when you expect to deal with each thing on it. So, what should be the first item on your wedding checklist? It absolutely has to be your wedding budget, as the size of that will have a bearing on everything else on your list. You need to come up with an accurate figure because if you optimistically overestimate then you will only be setting yourself up for major disappointment later on. After the budget, the next two items on your list should be deciding how big or small (in terms of guest numbers) you want your wedding to be and choosing the best man and the maid of honor. Next up should be the bridal gown and the groom’s attire, followed by the attire for the members of the bridal party. The attire portion of your checklist is important as you are going to have to arrange things like rentals and fittings. Other important items on your wedding checklist are the venues for the wedding and the wedding reception. Then there is the food, decorations and entertainment for the wedding reception. That is the main items covered, but there are lots of other ones too, and these are the ones that, whilst seemingly less important, add the gloss and shine to the day. Examples are the invitations, photography, flowers, rings and honeymoon plans. Leaving it late to get around to any of these ’small’ details can cause real problems, so deal with them sooner rather than later. What you can do too, which is something which would not have been an option not so long ago, is create your wedding checklist from a sample one from a wedding website. These samples are great starting points from which to build your own customized list. Creating such a customized wedding checklist will take you just a few hours and will save you a lot of hassle and headaches in the long run.
