Your wedding is one of the most important and awaited days of your life. While this may trigger an adrenaline rush, the responsibility of getting everything ready on time is a constant cause of concern. So, here is a wedding planning checklist, which will give you enough room for excitement as well as keep track of all the essentials according to the wedding planning timeline.
Deciding The Budget
As soon as you finalize the date, anxiety, as well as excitement, picks up. The biggest concern will be the budget in most cases. How much to spend, on what and when are some of the questions that require the utmost attention in the beginning phase of planning. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to close the budget much before you begin ticking off anything else off your wedding planning list.
Finalizing Guest List
Another mind-numbing confusion while planning a wedding is who to call during a wedding. Segment the list into categories such as friends, close relatives, office colleagues, mutual friends, neighbours or acquaintances.
Wedding Venue Selection
Extravagant weddings have become such a common phenomenon that there is hardly any possibility of getting the best possible venue since most venues stay blocked for months in advance. Therefore, make sure you start looking for your dream venue at least 10 to 11 months beforehand.
Choose The Caterer
Before finalizing a venue, check if they provide catering. In case they don’t, get in touch with the best caterers and finalize one of them for the wedding. Arguably, a good wedding day is one that can make everyone happy, and everyone will definitely be pleased if the food tastes good. You can experiment with food choices by serving multiple cuisines. If you want to be safe, though, you can go as per the traditional options.
Hiring Wedding Planner
This is not a necessary step in the wedding planning process, but it is an effective one. While most people love planning their own wedding, some just like to kick back and relax, or in some cases, they are too busy. In such a scenario, it is best to hire a wedding planner who can take care of the checklist for the wedding, as well as organize everything according to your convenience and requirement. However, make sure that you hire them well in advance to begin putting things into motion right from the beginning.
Checking Latest Trends
Everything from your outfits, invitation cards, wedding themes or photography, has an ever-changing trend. Do a lot of research about everything that is happening around. You might come across something that can potentially grab your attention at first glance and turn your wedding into the most exquisite and unique affair ever.
