Wedding Planning Checklist

Your Wedding

Almost everyone has a dream wedding plan or idea in their head. White dress, smart tuxedoes and glossy cars fill many wedding dreams.

However there’s a lot of little things that people may not consider when preparing for a wedding.

There are small things - ranging from a repair kit to the white car ribbon, that you need to remember. The details make the day!

The following is a checklist to help you make sure that you’ve organized every part of your wedding - from flower girl earrings to ribbons for your car.

Printed Items

Invitations

♥ Place Cards

♥ Thank You Notes.

♥ Cake Bags.

♥ Labels / Tags for wedding favors

♥ Table Numbers / seating charts

♥  Menus

♥  Wedding Programs

Reception & Wedding Venue Choices

When choosing the location for your wedding & reception you need to take quite a few things into consideration. Here are some things you should ask when choosing a wedding or reception venue:

♥ Disabled Access - If you have elderly relatives or friends with walkers or wheelchairs.

♥ Maximum Number - You’ll probably book the wedding & reception venue before deciding on final numbers. Check that they can accommodate those numbers.

♥ Safety Measures - Find out if there’s any special liability insurance or fire evacuation information you need to know.

♥ Liabilities - It’s important to know what you’ll be liable for when it comes to any mess or damage.

♥ Alcohol & Bar - Most venues allow you to pay a flat rate fee for a bartender then either put a small tab on for guests or allow them to buy alcohol themselves.

♥ Meal Choices - Make sure that if your guests have any special needs (allergies or vegetarian) they’ll be catered for.

Remember that in most cultures, the bridesmaids and groomsmen pay for their own outfits, while the bride or bride’s parents pay for the flowers.

Bride & Bridesmaids

Like any female outfit, there’s more than meets the eye when dressing up several ladies for the big day. Here are some things you should make sure not to forget.

♥ Hair & Makeup - Make sure you have a hair and makeup professional and that you’ve had some planning appointments to check what hairstyles will work best for your wedding theme.

♥ Dresses - Some people prefer that the dresses, including the bride’s, all share a similar theme while other bridesmaids are allowed to choose dresses in similar colours that match their body types and comfortability.

♥ Underwear - If your bridesmaid or bridal dresses are low cut, tight or have high splits, will you need any special underwear that won’t peek out?

♥ Shoes - If you aren’t too picky you can ask that bridesmaids bring their own shoes, just specify the type and color such as silver stilettos.

♥ Garter - For the bride.

♥ Earrings - Remember to check whether all bridesmaids have their ears pierced before purchasing the required amount.

♥ Necklaces

Groom & Groomsmen

It’s important to send along a woman when choosing the suits - otherwise most men will simply think that just any old suit will do! Here are some things to check for:

♥ Hiring or buying - sometimes it can cost nearly as much to hire as to buy a suit.

♥ Cummerbunds - If you’re hiring suits you’ll need to either have them made to match or hire them.

The Cake

The cake is the centrepiece of the reception. But like everything else it requires some work!

♥ Type - Decide if you want the whole cake the same or each tier different. A three tier cake with chocolate, fruit and carrot cake caters for all guests.

♥ Knives - For cutting the cake. You can use just any knife or you can buy specific wedding knives for the occasion and photos.

Flowers

When picking flowers there is a lot to take into consideration, including colors, size and price. Here are some things to remember:

♥ Flowers - For bride and bridesmaids.

♥ Corsages and posies - For groom, groomsmen, mother of the bride.

♥ Arrangements - For church or reception decoration.

♥ Flower Disposal - If you are using fresh flowers you may wish to have them pressed and framed.

♥ Extra Bouquet - If you plan to throw the bouquet, will you use the original or have a spare one made up especially?

The Wedding

When preparing the church, hall, garden or other location for the wedding you need to make sure everything’s organized and suitable.

♥ Chairs - If you plan to wed outdoors or in a hall you may need to hire seats.

♥ Flowers - Decorations at the front of the venue.

♥ Chair Decorations - Either on the pews or on the backs of chairs.

♥ Cushions - If the bride and groom will be kneeling at any stage.

The Reception

Once you’ve chosen and paid for the reception venue you’ll need to make sure everything’s arranged and ready:

♥ Table Decorations.

♥ Tablecloth & chair covers - Sometimes supplied by venue.

♥ Music - Either personal music from home or a juke box or band. Don’t forget to choose a special song for the first wedding dance.

♥ Cake - Some venues will charge an extra fee for storing the cake before the wedding as well as cutting and bagging it after the official “bride and groom cutting”.

♥ Favors - Will you provide bomboniere or wedding favors to guests?

♥ Wedding Photo Album - Do you want your wedding album available for guests to sign?

♥ Gifts - Do you want to have a wedding registry? Do you have any preference in gifts you do or do not receive? Would you prefer guests to pay for their meal in lieu of gifts? Where will the gifts be placed?

♥ Table Plans - Do you know where everyone will sit?

Place Cards - So guests can easily find their seats.

The Photographs

♥ Location - You need to decide if you’ll have photos during preparation time and during the reception and where your main photos will be taken. Somewhere close to the reception is preferable.

♥ Video - Will you have a professional wedding video? Will any friends be videoing the event?

♥ Props - Are you planning to have any special keepsakes, memorabilia or other items in the photo shoots?

♥ Money - Make sure you’ve got money with you if required for payment, or have arranged to pay either before or after.

Cars & Transport

♥ Bridal Car - For transporting bride and father of the bride, then the bride and groom.

♥ Bridesmaids Car - For transporting bridesmaids and flower girls.

♥ Groom Transport - For taking the groom & groomsmen to the wedding before the start of the ceremony.

♥ Honeymoon Car - Usually the couple or man’s car. Remember that it’s traditional in many places to decorate this in various ways including “Just Married” on the back windscreen.

♥ Guests Without Transport - Elderly relatives or those without transport may need transport and/or accommodation arranged.

♥ Car Ribbon - These can be sourced from sewing shops or bridal shops or even online.

Important People

♥ Celebrant or Priest - This is one person you better not forget! You should check with them first, some will wish to join you at the reception while others consider it more professional not to.

♥ Wedding Planner - Many people hire a wedding planner to take some of the stress out of dealing with all the details of preparation. Wedding planners have contacts in the business and often know the best and cheapest places to go to make arrangements for your ceremony.

♥ The Emcee - The Master of Ceremonies plays an important role in most weddings. His or her job is to make sure everything runs smoothly on the day (you’ll be too busy!) and introduce the couple and wedding party at the reception, as well as introducing guest speakers and telling a few anecdotes.

♥ The Photographer - You’ll have choices when you choose what photographer and what price you pay for wedding photos. You can start out with basic photos or buy a wedding package with certain items in it. Depending on how much you wish to pay, you can have the photographer take photos during wedding preparation, at the wedding, reception and when leaving for the honeymoon as well as a wedding video. If you wish to go the cheapest way possible, simply arrange for one set of wedding photos at a park or nice location. 

♥ Ushers and Organizers - You’ll need people to do any last minute setups (while you’re busy getting dressed for the wedding), organise last minute details, make sure things run smoothly and also ushers ready to help people get to their seats, both at wedding and reception.

The Bridal Bag

On the special day chances are you’ll need all sorts of little things. Pack a small bag that contains all the little extras just in case. Give the bag to someone who’ll be nearby most of the day and carry it discreetly. Here’s an idea of what to put in it:

♥ Mobile phones and purses for members of the bridal party.

♥ White chalk - Great for covering up stains on white dresses.

♥ Needle and thread - for little mishaps.

♥ Colored and white ribbon - for patching up, covering and fixing any hair problems.

♥ Tampons.

♥ Safety Pins

♥ Double Sided Tape

♥ Spare Makeup

♥ Hairspray

♥ Antihistamines and panadol/tylenol

♥ Dental floss/Breath Mints

♥ Wet Wipes

♥ Bobby Pins

♥ Perfume or Deodorant

The Honeymoon

♥ Transport - Do you have a honeymoon car ready?

♥ Clothing - Do you have a suitcase packed for both bride and groom, with everything you’ll need on the honeymoon?

♥ Tickets and Travel Arrangements - Have you booked your holiday?

Other Things To Remember

♥ Wishing Well - For guests to place money or cards.

♥ Gifts - For bridesmaids, groomsmen and people such as the parents of the bride and groom.

♥ Wedding Rings - Keep them in their original boxes so they’re harder to lose or smudge.

♥ Ring Cushion - For the page boy.

Thank You Cards - To send out after you get back from the honeymoon and sort through the gifts.

♥ Cleanup, Gift Pickup & Payment - Will any bar tabs or reception costs need to be paid following the wedding? Who will take the gifts home from the reception? Will anyone need to cleanup or packup once the bride and groom leave the wedding reception to start their honeymoon?

♥ Rentals - Do you need to rent any chairs or other items, especially if you are having an outdoor wedding?

Your Wedding Photography Checklist

Every bride has a mental list of “must take” photos. Use this wedding photography checklist to keep track of those photo opportunities most special to you! Make sure to review this list with your photographer and provide him or her with a copy of the final list.
