Do you already have an officiant lined up? If not, that’s something else you’ll need to settle 🙂

Also, accessories! For you, your FH and your wedding party – this includes shoes, socks (for guys), jewellery (for you and the ladies), purse/clutch (for you to stash your phone, keys, etc.), veil/hair accessory…

Oh, and hair & makeup! Even if you’re planning to DIY, make sure you practise a couple times before your wedding day so that you can anticipate how long it’ll take you to complete. Remember to take test pictures on your own too, so you can determine if you need to tweak anything.

That’s all I could think of at the moment, HTH!

Just prioritize your to-dos into a spreadsheet and assign each dates based on priority. I put the entire to-do list from the knot into a spreadsheet (with their assigned dates included) and went through and deleted lots of it and personalized it to what I need. I then methodically went through the list, in deadline order, and knocked off each item, one by one. It just took a couple of hours, and you can add as you go along in your planning.

I keep the to-do list (and detailed guest list) on a small flash drive.

I am an excel junky so I did a spreadsheet and listed everything with a budget next to with a column for estimate prices and final prices. I also printed out the months in calendar format and added the task on the date I wanted to hav eit done by it helped me to see it in that layout instead of just a list. I broke down things by chosing my vendors 1st and then started on my DIY projects. So that you know how much money you have left to play  with. Make tons of folders on your computer being very detailed so that you can find what you need 4 months from now. I save all inspiration I cam across. I also bought a file folder with 10 dividers that had contracts, receipts and inspiration from magazines, etc.

i hate to say it… but the knot has a very easy checklist that you get when you sign up.

check it out.


your list looks fairly complete–make sure you are organized the whole way, it will make it easier to go forward.


good luck and congrats!
