Hello! Here is a copy of my own wedding planning checklist that I provide to my clients. A checklist is critical when planning for a wedding. It aids in keeping track of what the next item is to check off and also guides your focus to the appropriate task at the appropriate time . For example, it is never good to spend time on invitations until five to seven months before your wedding.
Here is a little planning tip: it is best to mail out your invitations six to eight weeks before your wedding (eight for destination and six for local). If you mail them out too early, your guests will forget to RSVP forcing you to make many phone calls after your RSVP deadline. This also will delay working on your seating plans, which can take weeks to finalize.
