The Ultimate Wedding Planning Checklist

Updated: Sep 26, 2020

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, they say. So here begins the journey of a wedding plan through these nine steps, in descending level of importance. At the end of this amazing journey you will have graduated to wedding ninjas!

1. Plan your budget

Now that he has proposed to you, and you find him to be the man of your dreams, sit down with him to share your plan of that perfect wedding. First things first – the finances, how much can you afford to spend on that dream wedding of yours. You will have to weigh in on how much you can dip into your own savings, how much you can depend on your parents for funds, so on and so forth.

2. Wedding Folder/Binder

The most important part of a wedding plan is to get your priorities right so that the most meaningful parts of a wedding are not left out. You wouldn’t want the epic engagement party you threw for your friends and family to put a dent in your wedding budget would you? It is good practice to keep a Journal to plan all your wedding activities as a couple.

3. Guest List

There is always that friend of your fiancé’s that is so annoying, yet is an essential part of her entourage. Or the mutual friend who makes both of you uncomfortable but still has earned an obligatory invite due to a last minute favour he granted you. Distant family you never knew you had, but will cast their wrath on you lest you forget to invite them. A guest list is a cornerstone of any wedding. Make some time together hash out who is in and who is out on your Wedding guest list.

4. Plan the date and Venue
