Wedding Checklist

I’m getting married!  Hurray!  Now where do I start? How long should I wait before sending out invitations? When should we start shopping for tuxes? How much notice does the reception hall need? We have to get centerpieces and gifts and liquor. We understand…your list of things to do is spiraling out of control. You can’t seem to wrangle together all the mini-lists you’ve made on post-it’s, receipts, and notebooks. It’s frustrating and difficult to keep track of the many things you need to so before the Big Day. For your convenience, we offer a simple, easy-to-follow checklist. We suggest printing out a copy or two and crossing off items as they are completed. We’ve broken it down into timeline format so that you’re not overwhelmed with doing everything right now. Some things need to be done today, and some things can wait a month or two. Give yourself a break and handle your to-do list in bite-sized pieces. Don’t stress…relax & enjoy the ride.
