Wedding Planning Checklist

Updated: Jan 4, 2022

Photographer: Kayla Cindy

Wedding planning can seem stressful because for most, this is a new experience. My job as your coordinator is to ensure you have a stress-free wedding day. You spend a lot of time and money planning your wedding, enjoying it is a must! You didn't hire a full wedding planner? That's okay! I have created an 18-month check list to help guide you during the planning process. This is a general check list. Every wedding is unique so be sure to customize the check list as need for your wedding vision. Remember not to overdo it though! Overdoing will cause unnecessary stress. The rule "less is more" really does apply to your wedding day. Don't let minute details push over the edge. Your number one goal will be to marry the love of your like in the company of closest family and friend.

18 Months

- Celebrate your engagement!

- Choose a wedding date (or a few in case you love a venue that is not available on your desired date).

- Create a mood board to help create you wedding style & design.

- Create a binder or online spread sheet to help organize your contracts, invoices, receipts, etc.

- Create a wedding website.

- Decide who will be in your wedding party. Send them an invite!

- Make a list of 3-5 venues you love and schedule a tour with them. Book your venue once you find the right fit.

- Assemble your team of weddings pros. The sooner you book your vendors the better!

- Get engagement photos taken.

This list may seem extensive but if you check in weekly you will stay on top of your planning duties with little to no stress. Every wedding is unique, and every budget is different, be sure to customize this list as it fits to your wedding day vision. This should just be the foundation! Once you sign agreements with vendors, add in your payment schedule or your check-in dates if you have meetings scheduled with them. Most importantly, don't be afraid to ask for help! Your friends and family are equally as excited as you are to celebrate your big day. Congrats and best of luck!
