@cre2013:  I have Wedding Happy for the iPhone. It’s a pretty simple app – has all the major tasks in it with dates associated with the tasks. Then you can also input all your vendors and link them to existing contacts. I think it was free when I downloaded it.

The only downside is you can’t create extra tasks unless you buy the $2.99 upgrade. (I did this since I wanted to add all the dates I owe payments to vendors and some of DIY tasks.)

I love this thread because I keep forgetting about what needs to get done.  My groom needs something to wear? what? lol.  I’m making good progress but it sounds like I still have plenty of fun work ahead of me.

i actually thought theknot.com’s to do list was MUCH much better than the apps I’ve seen. Literally everything you can think of is on there.

Nearly everything. I just started planning in Dec. So far, I’ve ordered my dress, figured out the bridal party, and booked the venue, officiant, photographer, and DJ. So… I’ve got the major stuff figured out. But I still have to work on everything else.

Here’s my list.. not too overwhelming, luckily! From my calendar in order of when they’re due. Having no bridal party, an inclusive private ceremony location, and a restaurant as a reception venue takes out so much of the stress.

-Book harpist for reception and jazz quintet for after dinner
-Meet officiant
-Mail bridal tea invites
-Apply for marriage license
-Book honeymoon hotels in London and Paris (wing it the rest of the time)
-Mail wedding invites
-Meet florist to finalize quote
-Bridal tea 
-Finalize menu selections
-Dress alterations
-Follow up on any late RSVPs
-Order placecards
-Order wedding favours
-Print seating map and finalize number with restaurant

I’ll have to review all of your lists to see if there’s anything I’m missing!
