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.
Working out your budget should be the first item on your wedding checklist, as it will have an effect on everything else on it. Be clear on how much can you spend in total and how much you want to spend on each aspect of your wedding. Then, you need to decide on who will be fulfilling the major roles for your wedding. Who will be the best man? Who will be the maid of honor? Who will carry out the other, still important, roles? The earlier this is decided on the more help you can for the rest of the planning process.
Finding venues for the wedding itself and the wedding reception should be your next considerations. You need to not only find suitable venues, but also book them up as if you leave it too long to make a booking then they might not be available on the dates that you want them for. Having got venues, you need to think about decorations for them. For the wedding reception, there is also food and entertainment to arrange.
Items that can be easily forgotten until late on if left off of the wedding checklist are things such as the rings, the invitations, the flowers, the guest book, the thank you cards, a photographer, the honeymoon reservations and the attire for the honeymoon. Overlooking even one of these items can be real pain and will take the gloss off of your big day.
To ensure that you do not miss anything off of your wedding checklist, it is advisable to start off with a sample wedding checklist from a wedding website and then to customize it. You can download sample wedding checklists for free, so it makes sense to at least browse one or two before creating your own.
