Making Sure You Have Your Wedding Check List A wedding check list is important when you begin to plan everything – especially when you do not have a wedding planner – as it helps you to stay focused, medicine it keeps you organised and it helps you to feel better about every step you take towards the wedding.
Every wedding check list should include various steps, divided according to the emergency: Immediately after you have accepted that shiny ring, you need to start making decisions, like what ceremony you want, if you want a religious ceremony as well, in which church and which venue, if you want a theme for your wedding, what is your budget, how would you like your wedding dress to look like and where you would like to get it from. Then, think about the preliminary list of guests and decide whether to book accommodation for them, talk to your bridesmaids, think about the honeymoon and start arranging all the details, from payments to transportation and hotel. With a few months before the fortunate event, you need to check on your bridesmaids’ dresses and to order your own dress, in case you have not done that so far. Moreover, now is the time to book various stuff, from wedding transport to florist, a photographer, caterers, DJ or band, hairdresser and all the other important people or services which might get so busy that you could end up losing them in case you decide too late. The wedding check list then takes things month by month, from making a wedding gift list, to confirming your honeymoon trip, finalizing the guest list and looking for wedding accessories, getting the bridal lingerie and choosing table names and decorations.
The wedding rings are very important, and so is sending the invitations and agreeing on details like flowers and decorations, starting to compile a list of music for your DJ, thinking about the first dance and drafting your vows. Of course, before you decide on the vows, you need to confirm the ceremony and test your make-up and hair style for that day. With one month or two weeks before the magic day, you have to confirm the presence of the guests, the details with the wedding suppliers and honeymoon related issues, as well as to have the final fitting for both you and your bridesmaids’ dresses. Finally, on the day prior to your wedding, you need to drop off everything that needs to be dropped off, to make sure that the rings are with the best man, that your luggage is packed and to relax, sleep well, but not before setting your alarm for the next day.
Do not forget to eat well in the morning of your wedding day and to enjoy yourself. The whole purpose of a wedding check list is to ease things up for you, so that you can properly enjoy the special day of your marriage.
