There’s nothing quite as thrilling as saying “Yes!” to the love of your life – and then time comes to plan the wedding of your dreams! Weddings are a journey, and it can be a lot to manage. But don’t worry. We’ve got you covered with the ultimate wedding planning checklist to make your event planning a breeze.
Decide On Your Celebrations
Before you dive into the nitty gritty of wedding planning, take a step back and decide on what kind of experience you’d like to have. Do you want an intimate gathering or a grand blow out? Will you go for something classic or something more unique and chic?
Choose Your Venue & Date
Once you’ve settled on the type of wedding you’re having, it’s time to choose a venue and date. Make sure you take a few things into account when picking a place. Will there be enough room for all your guests? Does it match the feel of your wedding? Is it easy to get to? Most importantly, the venue should match the vibe you want to create for your special day.
Send Out ‘Save the Dates’
Once the venue and date have been chosen, it’s time to send out your ‘Save the Dates’. This will give your guests plenty of time to plan ahead and make the necessary arrangements.
Book Your Vendor Dream Team
An amazing wedding team will make or break your event. You need top-notch talent to make your wedding day flawless, so choose your vendors carefully. Start with the big ones like caterers and photographers, and then narrow down to the details like florists and DJs.
Create a Seating Plan
No wedding reception is complete without a seating plan. This can be tricky, since you’ll need to keep in mind who should sit with whom. Make sure to take everyone’s feelings into account when creating a seating plan – it can be a diplomatic process.
Choose Your Outfits
Now it’s time to pick out the perfect outfits! Choosing the right outfits for your wedding is essential, and it’s one of the most fun parts of wedding planning. Make sure you’re comfortable in what you choose, as you’ll be in them for the entire day.
Plan Your Rehearsal Dinner
Yes, wedding planning doesn’t end on the day you say “I Do.” There’s one more event to plan – the rehearsal dinner. This is the perfect opportunity to gather your closest family and friends before the big day. So make sure you plan for a night that your guests won’t soon forget!
Enjoy Your Special Day!
The big day has arrived! Enjoy it as much as you can – it’ll be gone in a flash. Take plenty of pictures, soak up every moment, and – most importantly – make sure to take a minute to look around and take in all the love and beauty that has made your day so special.
With this checklist, you are well on your way to making your wedding planning a breeze! So get organized, take a deep breath, and enjoy the process. After all, this is one of the most special days of your life!
