There’s a lot of things to consider when you are planning your wedding. With so many things to schedule, a checklist is always a great idea. Do you know what you should put on your list? Whether you don’t have a list or want additional tasks, our bridal checklist will help make sure you’re ready for your special day!
☑ Create Your Guest List
Your guest list plays a major part in planning your wedding. Many elements of your wedding plans will revolve around this list. You will need to provide catering an estimate of attendees to ensure there is an adequate amount of food. The venue you will select should be equipped to host how many people you will invite. If your venue doesn’t provide chairs or tables or have enough, renting those items will require a good estimate of the attendance. With that being said, send your RVSPs as early as possible! The earlier you know who is, and who is not, coming, the better your prep will be for your wedding.
☑ Reach Out to Vendors ASAP
Now that you have a rough estimate of your guest list, it’s time to reach out to vendors. For the typical bride and groom, there are many elements of their wedding that will require the services of a vendor. The following are just a few services that wedding planners will need to explore for their wedding:
Depending on the theme of the wedding, additional vendors may be necessary. Therefore, reach out to them as soon as possible to ensure you secure your date before someone else does.
☑ Be Thorough
Weddings are notorious for having the unexpected happen. As a result, it is crucial that your planning is thorough from the proposal to the day you two say “I do.” For example, make sure that you have your agreements with vendors in writing. Additionally, think of the unexpected and provide backup plans. If there are no roses available, would you be okay with tulips? What would happen if your venue had to do some last minute changes to your ballroom reservation? What is the expectation for communication if you have to consider an alternative? By having these ideas expressed clearly and in writing will ensure that your special day is never derailed by the unexpected.
