So today we are 2 months out from our wedding and I know (and hope) things are under control, but I still feel so stressed out! I am convinced that I will forget to do something really important and not have enough time left to get it done! Does anybody have a detailed timeline that they have been using of what all you have to do to plan a wedding? What all have you done so far and what do you have left to do before the big day? I am obsessed with lists and am just so scared of forgetting something! Please help!
I reluctantly use theknot.com one, coupled with this one:
The Knot one makes me all edgy since I see that I have like 87 things to do yet, and I don’t like that huge number. But it does help me check off the little things fast. And this gives me an overview of what I need to do. I customized it to myself and my timeline (I’m two months out too!) and it all seems to be working.
I use theknot’s online checklist too, though it bugs me with those exclamation points when something isn’t done! But it seems to be pretty comprehensive, and you can add your own to-do item when something isn’t listed on there.
Here is one that is part of the Excel wedding planner I give to my brides. (It’s in PDF so it’s printable)
Obviously, you don’t have to do everything on this checklist. But, it’s a good way to know what you want to delegate.
These are all very detailed. If you need to destress a little…got get the timeline from Offbeatbride.com. You’ll feel so much better.
I just use the one on The Knot (www.theknot.com) that you get when you enter your wedding date. I also have one from my planner. She has a website set up for us and it has its own little to-do and milestones.
this is great! i’m a sucker for checklists – the very act of checking things off is so calming.
I’m keeping an eye on the the checklist from theknot, but am also keeping a master calendar of all the appointments/meetings/touching base stuff we need to take care of or have on the schedule. I’m sure I’ll have a better idea once I meet with our DOC.
There are three very detailed ones in Mindy Weiss’ new book. They are crazy!
Thank you for the links and suggestions! What a great help! I felt a little better after going through the lists because the things I haven’t done yet, I am at least aware that I need to get moving on doing them! Thanks again and if anybody else has a list of to-do’s, I’d love to see them – I feel like if I don’t have a checklist, I get off track and procrastinate!
