Brainstorm _ get your ideas formulated and organized on paper. Consider things like small wedding ideas, unusual wedding venues, outdoor wedding ideas. Budget _ establish your financial limits and guidelines. Consider a cheap wedding reception as a means to save money. Guest List _ Who do you want to participate in this special event. Reservations _ Book the Venues. Vendors _ Interview and get contracts on flowers, food, photographer, musicians, baker, etc. Wedding Dress _ Provide time for up to four fittings for your bridal gown, just in case. Bridesmaids _ Sizes, colors, styles, fabrics and multiple fittings will all take time. Invitations _ Lots of choices. Consider the wedding reception invitation wording if you\'re making your own. Or, customized wedding invitation text if you\'re going to buy them.
Lastly, the checklist should be customized for your property. Just like in aviation, if you don\'t have a checklist for your specific property, you don\'t have a real checklist. Generic won\'t cut it. Do you have a second freezer? It should be documented. Multiple air conditioning units? Absolutely. Specialized lights, landscaping systems, plumbing systems or high_end vehicles need special checks and memory isn\'t what you want to rely on. If the service starts with a comprehensive checklist that is then tailored for your property, you are getting an expert. Make sure they record your special needs and add them to their list during the initial sign up interview. Checklists have saved many lives and airplanes in aviation. Applied to your snowbird home, they can do the same. But keep in mind these three key elements when you are interviewing home watch companies.
