THE WEDDING

CHECKLIST CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR ENGAGEMENT! This is an exciting time, and deserving of celebration. However, you do not want to let your head stay in the clouds for too long. After all, you have a wedding to plan! Are you ready? Then let’s get started!

O R GA N I Z E E V E RY T H I N G

While this may seem like something you can do later on, this is a very important step. ¨ Get a big and sturdy folder to stuff everything in. You’ll be putting all your research in here, like band choices and location ideas. You’ll also want to use this folder to keep receipts and other wedding related documents in here. You may use more than one folder, of course.

DAT E S Of course it is simple, but it is imperative. Get the dates set as soon as possible. ¨ Get the wedding date set. After all, this is the big day that everything else is revolving around. Consider the seasons. Do you want your wedding framed with green grass or white snow? Perhaps you would prefer the reds and oranges of autumn? ¨ Set a date for your rehearsal dinner. This should be no more than a week before the wedding itself, but preferably not the day before either. ¨ If you are having an engagement party, that should be set for a date not too far off from the engagement. Of course, you cannot just call everyone you know and tell them to come over that day after he proposed. Give your guests at least a month’s notice before expecting their presence at these events. ¨ Bachelor and bachelorette parties are usually planned by the best man and maid-of-honor respectively. This isn’t your job to plan this party. However, you should insure that your friends don’t plan the parties on dates that are inconvenient for you.

C O N S I D E R T H E C O O R D I N AT O R If you go down this list, and ask how on earth you are going to be able to do all of this, you may want to consider getting a wedding coordinator. ¨ Interview coordinators at your discretion. If you have family and friends that would love to help out, you may not need a professional coordinator after all. It really is up to you if you choose to do so, hire a coordinator.

MONEY MAKES THE WEDDING No matter who is paying, you need to work out a budget. ¨ WORK OUT A BUDGET FOR THE FOLLOWING CATEGORIES... ¨ Location fees (for both the ceremony and the reception) ¨ Invitations ¨ Food and drink ¨ Clothing and Makeup (this includes the bride’s dress, make up, and accessories, as well as the groom’s tuxedo) ¨ Decor (decorations for both venues) ¨ Service fees (for the officiant, the caterers, the florist, the photographer, the band/DJ, etc) ¨ Wedding Rings ¨ Stationary (for invites and programs) ¨ Transportation and After-Wedding Lodging

K E E P YO U R G U E S T S U P TO DAT E Invitations and save-the-dates are pretty much crucial if you want people to come. Thankfully, there are other ways that people are keeping their guest list up to speed. ¨ Prepare the guest list. You want to decide who should come from your family and friends and his family and friends. ¨ Prepare the invitations and R.S.V.P. cards to send to each household you are inviting. ¨ A wedding website. You can make free websites and blogs from various places like Wordpress and Blogger. W E D D I N G S P OT L I G H T M AGA Z I N E by B R I D E S C L U B


BRI DAL E XPO C H E C KLIST CO NTI N U E D

DESIGNING THE DREAM All white? Something blue? Or a splash of everything? Design plays a huge role during the big day. ¨ Think colors. Do you want one or two? Maybe more? Whatever you choose, just make sure the colors do not clash. ¨ Think clothes. What style of dress do you want to wear? What kind of suit do you want him to wear? What do you want your bridesmaids to wear? What do you want the groomsmen to wear? These are very important details. ¨ You can get a lot of ideas from magazines and websites. Take clippings and printouts to put in your wedding folder.

YO U R W E D D I N G PA R T Y ¨ Start thinking about who you want in your wedding party. Start asking your girlfriends you would like as your bridesmaids if they want to be in the wedding. Have your groom start thinking about what guys he wants as his groomsmen. ¨ Decide upon and finalize all the formalwear. This includes the mens’ tuxedoes, the girls’ dresses and all accessories.

P L AC E YO U R O R D E R S After having envisioned what you want things to look like, it is time to get specific. ¨ Find specifics. Choose the stores and specific items. Then, buy them. ¨ Find and pick out your dress. ¨ Then order it. ¨ Find and pick out his tux. ¨ Then have him order it. ¨ Find and pick out your decorations. ¨ Then order them. ¨ Find and pick out your bridesmaids’ dresses. ¨ Then have them order them. ¨ Also find the services you want. ¨ Find a catering service you like. ¨ Then hire them. ¨ Find a photographer & videographer you like. ¨ Then hire them. ¨ Find a bakery you like for the cake. ¨ Then hire them. ¨ Don’t forget the stationary. ¨ Print out and mail your invitations if you haven’t done so already. ¨ Have the programs designed and printed.

T H E L E GA L S T U F F As much of a personal, emotional event this is, it is also a legal ceremony. ¨ Find an officiant. Whether you want a religious leader or just someone who had “the power vested in” them M A K E S U R E N O T T O WA I T U N T I L T H E L A S T M I N U T E D O G E T T H E WO R K D O N E .

¨ Take care of the legal documents. You will need to apply for a wedding certificate at your local city hall.

THE WEEK BEFORE All the effort is accumulating this week. ¨

Have the rehearsal dinner. Rehearse the ceremony as many times as it takes to get it right. Then treat your attendees to a small dinner. During the dinner, you may want to also practice the ceremony.

¨

Call everyone to double-check things. ¨ Call the caterer. ¨ Call the photographer. ¨ Call the officiant. ¨ Call the florist. ¨ Call the band/DJ.

T H E DAY O F The time has come... ¨ Pay everyone whom you haven’t yet paid. ¨ Relax. ¨ Enjoy the day and all the beautiful memories that are sure to follow.
