Wedding Checklists

There are so many things to plan! So many things to think about! It's time to plan your dream wedding, but where do you start? With a wedding planning checklist, of course! A checklist will give you an overall idea of the scope, including all the little things you may or may not want to include. Of course, every bride has her own ideas, and every wedding is different, so my checklist may not look like your checklist, but it's a good place to start. You can always fine-tune it as you go.

One of the first tasks at hand is to get some engagement photos taken. You'll need these for various things throughout the wedding planning process, from your engagement announcements or save the date cards, to possibly using them in your wedding invitations or wedding decorations. For inspiration, we like these Top 7 Engagement Photo Ideas. And when choosing your wedding photographer keep these Tips for Working With Your Wedding Photographer in mind.

Asking for help early is also a good idea! You probably have a good idea who your bridesmaids will be, but the sooner you make it official, the sooner your girls will be there to help you plan. We love this bride's way of asking, Will You Be My Bridesmaid? Since her friends were going to have to travel to her wedding, she went with a suitcase/travelling theme, and it was a big hit with her friends. Another one of our team members blogged as she planned her wedding, and you might like to read some of her ideas in the series His+Hers=Ours .
