True enough, weddings are expected to be frilly and fussy. There’s no doubt about that! However, make do with all the frills and thrills but get rid of all the fuss and mess that leads to stress. For hassle-free progress in your wedding preparations, do count on a wedding to do list which ticks every single item off as done!
Because there are such a lot of things to do before getting married, you will definitely need a wedding to do list. This checklist covers everything from the most basic categories of things-to-do down to the smallest details under each category. Specifically, this includes everything from preparations on the venue, guest list, invitations, bridal attire, menu, physical arrangement, accommodation, and transportation. If it were only all up to you, the only thing you wouldn’t mess with would be the wedding date itself.
Speaking of the wedding date, it is crucial that the date and time of day be finalized before you can proceed with anything written on your wedding to do list. Once the date has been set, all your plans will follow in motion.
For example, a year or so before the wedding, you will help select a theme for it. It follows that this determines the size, venue, and formality of your wedding party. As early as then, you will already have to check with the clergyman concerned regarding ceremony or church requirements. When possible, you should already reserve the church and book the reception in order to fulfill your ideal location.
If you have the luxury of 6 to 9 months prior to the wedding, it would be a good time to make the most important selections. These include not only your choice of attire for the bridal entourage but also the bridesmaids, groomsmen, and flower girls to fit into them. You can also shop around for your choice of florists, caterers, photographers, bridal registries, and other wedding services.
Don’t forget that 4 to 6 months before the wedding, you should already have finalized your guest list and invitations, enough to be able to send out “save the date” notices. These will inform and remind your attendees.
The bottom line is that a wedding to do list can be a real life-saver. It saves you and your sanity from all the many possible hassles that come with the hustle and bustle of wedding preparations. The end result is that you are blessedly spared from the headaches of things that haven’t been done and the heartaches of those which should have been done.
