i did have a hotel coordinator who was ok but wasn’t great.

since i was going to stay at the hotel the night before i needed to make sure i had everything.

i walked through friday, saturday, and sunday, step by step and make sure i had everything by writing a list of everything i would need i each segment of the weekend.

it worked for me.

Commenting to follow this – I have a coordinator at the reception venue, but I am doing everything else myself. I think the idea about walking through the whole week an listing out everything I’ll need is probably the bes thing to do. I’m afraid I’ll forget something stupid like… an outfit for the next day or… an accessory I really wanted to remember.

I’m still three months away from my wedding, but I’m already in the same boat as you! Of course, I wanted a court house wedding long before we even got engaged, but my fiance wanted the big traditional wedding (go figure). I’m using these checklists to help me stay organized and hopefully not lose my head: http://apracticalwedding.com/spreadsheets/ 

 

I don’t know if it will help, but I’m sure you can do it! And then, come back and tell me how you did it 😉

I’m not going to have a coordinator (that I know of) and my plan is just to make lists ahead of time.

skyeblu87:  I was just about to post those! I am pre-wedding, too, but I plan on using those to make sure all the things are where they need to be when they need to be. I have a coordinator at the ceremony site and at the reception site. So, I am hoping that they will take care of most everything other than getting things to and from the locations.

jwdesiree:  Miraculously I did not forget anything!  I had so many nightmares of doing so that I made extensive, crazy-person lists and nothing was forgotten!
