Uh, we’re sending out schedules for Friday and Saturday to everyone involved, and I’m sending a schedule to my photographer, videographer, caterer and officiants…just to keep everyone in the loop.  I don’t think it’s controlling, and in my case, it’s so not organized, b/c I’m not an organized person…I just want everyone to know what’s going on and make sure I don’t forget to tell someone something important! πŸ™‚

@ChantelleyLace:  I did something similar for the bridesmaids and groomsmen.  I borrowed some templates from the internet and modified them.  If I can find them, I could send to you (if you’d like).  I e-mailed them to everyone the week of the wedding.

I don’t think it’s controlling, I sent out a mass spreadsheet to everyone in the bridal party with times and expectations from each person and everyone thanked me, because they weren’t sure what was going on.

I think this is a good idea and not controling at all – it helps keep everone informed and know what the da will look like instead of just going in blindly to your big day!  I actually just finished my schedule and it included dates, times, locations and who should be there (groomsmen, bridesmaids, etc.)

Everyone gets a schedule.

I sent an email to our GM and BM a week before of day before (when we set up) and very detailed day of timelines… from the very start of the day to the time that we expected the reception to end.

Caterer and DJ got the Reception timeline… so that they were aware of time they needed to be ready

Photog and DOC (which was just a friend that stepped in) got full day of timeline… the same that the Bridal Party got.

All vedors got who the DOC was and that she would be available if they needed anything.

It’s not bridezilla and ppl will be appreciative that they’re in the know and know whats expected of them =)

I think times of events and things are super helpful. You only come off as crazy if you schedule their bathroom breaks ;).

I think it is a great idea for everyone to know what is going on. I pland on doing the same and emailing them out to everyone a week or so before, that way they know. And then nobody can say I didn’t know what time ______ was at!

It’s not controlling. It’s important to make sure everyone involved is informed and on the same page, so to speak. πŸ™‚

I was going to email a schedule to everyone just so we’re all on the same page.  Information like “Pictures start at 2:00, Bagels and Mimosas at 10:00” is very helpful for the bridal party. A folder though? How much info are you giving them?

I totally did this. And I still got questions as to where they were supposed to be and when.

I think this is an AMAZING idea, and I fully plan to do this myself.  I was actually just in a wedding a couple weeks ago that was terribly unorganized.  We had no idea where to go or what to do, and it was extremely frustrating, to say the least.
