Create a checklist right now. Write down all of the things you think you need to do between now and the day of the big event. Of course, not all parties need a comprehensive list with timing deadlines. For example, if you were throwing an impromptu get_together with your friends, and you were doing a Mexican_themed party, with Mexican food and margaritas, you would want to make a list of everything you needed from the store. Granted, this is an oversimplification of what goes into planning a party, but you get the idea. The list will help you to remember everything you need for your party to be a success. When creating a party planning checklist for a really important event, like someone\'s 50th wedding anniversary or a retirement party, there are two extremely important items you need to have on that checklist before anything else: the budget and the guest list.
Once you have a list of all the things you need and want once you find them or buy them you can cross them off the list. List will probably be short at first but every time you think of something that you need add it to the list because you may forget. Be sure to mark off all the things that you have completed or bought so that your list doesn\'t look so long and frighten you. Having a wedding checklist will help you wedding planning run smooth. Don\'t be afraid to have too many list there\'s never too much planning you can do for a wedding. You want to be prepared to enjoy your special day.
