Officiant _ Choose the individual to perform ceremony and acquire all legal documents. Rehearsal _ Invitations, venue, favors, gifts, speeches, and readings will take some coordination. Rings _ Purchase, re_size and engrave. Makeover _ Hairstyle, cut, color, manicure, and pedicure. Music _ Wedding reception songs, wedding songs first dance, DJ, etc. And, much, much more. A project this big is going to have so many things going on that you\'ll quickly get blown off course if you\'re not able to stay on top of everything. The earlier phases are certainly not as demanding, but as time progresses, inertia and the clock will begin to work against you if you don\'t have everything under control. So, now is the time to set up the framework that will help you manage the insanity. The most important consideration here is to GET organized and to STAY organized and by developing a well thought out wedding checklist timeline, you\'ll be well on your way to a satisfying and highly successful outcome.
Making a budget for the party is the first \"to_do\" item on your checklist. By making a budget first you can figure out how many people you can invite which leads into the next section of your checklist. Next are a group of tasks which focus on your guests. For example, you will need to make a list of who you would like to invite, obtain invitations and then prepare, address and mail the invitations. Make sure you create a deadline for when you need to have the invitations in the mail. Give your guest two weeks to RSVP to let you know if they will or will not be attending the party. Prepare a second checklist to keep track of the people who will be attending the party. Next on the party planning checklist is about the location where you\'ll be holding the party. If you have not decided where to hold the party and you are thinking of having the party somewhere other than your home, it\'s best to do a little research before moving forward. You\'ll want to add a note to your checklist to call different venues and get price quotes.
