When it comes to wedding planning we all follow different wedding planning checklists. Some of them overlap and some do not, but the most important thing is having all the checklists you need in front of you when you are getting ready for that big day. A good way to keep them all in one place is to keep a “planning timeline” that you can glance at to remind yourself of what needs to be done next. This planning timeline can serve as a personal guide to all the tasks that need to be done and accomplished before, during, and after the wedding ceremony.
The One Fabulous Day
It’s the one day that you want to be the most nervous about… It’s the only day you want to plan around. It’s the day you want to feel like you accomplished something big. And now you need to sit down and brainstorm for months before that day to make sure that you have everything you need and completely prepared for your big day. Draw up a wedding planning timeline. Research possible wedding venues and ceremony locations whether separate (if you have no idea where to begin) or together (whether you have a wedding planner to handle the wedding planning). An do not forget about the music, as this will make the tone of the atmosphere at your wedding, and there are so many options to choose from. Depending on your budget you could choose a brass wedding band
, an organ, or maybe the violin, which is one of the favorites when it comes to outdoor ceremonies.
Make Sure You Stick To The Budget
A few months before your wedding day to make a trip to the bank to pay for everything. If you know it will cost more than you can afford to spend at this point in the wedding planning process then you need to get everything in order so that you won’t bankrupt yourself by paying for things you don’t have to. I also recommend having a very strong wedding planning checklist to remind yourself of what needs to be done and the tasks you need to complete. There are lots of great wedding planning checklists out there that you can find for free on the Internet.
The Guest List
As for whom among your wedding guest list is the most important? This is a tricky question, particularly if you are planning to have a themed wedding. Some couples struggle with this; some want to be formal and stick to their list while others want to make it more interesting by inviting some unexpected guests This is fine for many people who are very familiar with these types of nuptials, but if you are having a really unusual theme that may appeal only to a certain group of people, it may be time to re-think your guest list.
When you are creating your wedding guest list, make sure you choose people who want to be there in the least amount of time. In some cases, you may want to give a few slots to plus ones because they cost less than the other people who RSVP, but you need to make sure they fit in with your overall plans. And finally, if you are having a lot of unexpected events, then you may want to consider those who you don’t know so well, like cousins or aunts or siblings. Because you never know when they might want to join in your celebration.
