Essential Wedding Planning Checklists

Wedding Planning

Wedding planning checklists can be helpful tools that will ensure nothing is forgotten or accidentally left out from your plans. Here are a few different types of checklists which are essential for wedding plans and resources on where to find comprehensive checklists for your wedding.

Types of Wedding Planning Checklists

Most wedding planners use a collection of checklists for their wedding plans instead of one big checklist which may leave out important items; it is also easier to keep track of wedding plans through separate, more detailed checklists. A few wedding planning checklists which you may find helpful for your wedding plans include:

  • A Guest Checklist – through this list you can jot down guests’ names and contact info, check if an invitation had been sent out and if an RSVP response was received, mark gifts received and check when a thank-you note has been mailed.
  • Wedding Attire Checklist – through this list you can track attire and wedding day accessories for you and your partner and the wedding party.
  • Wedding Ceremony Checklist – necessary details for the wedding ceremony including locating an officiate, taking care of legal documents, reserving a ceremony location and renting decorations can all be tracked through this checklist.
  • Wedding Reception Checklist – everything from vendor reservations to table preparations to decorations are noted on a reception checklist to help you make sure everything is prepared for the wedding reception.
  • Transportation Checklist – managing transportation needs for the wedding day is a cinch with a wedding day transportation checklist, and on this list you can jot down reservation times, costs and contact numbers.
  • Honeymoon Checklist – this checklist will help to ensure that honeymoon plans are not left to the last minute; with a honeymoon checklist you can make sure that your reservations and honeymoon plans will be ready and waiting as soon as you and your partner leave the reception.

Where to Find Wedding Planning Checklists

Wedding planning checklists are available through wedding planning books and organizers and through online wedding websites. Take the time to view different formats for checklists to find the right ones which are suitable for your wedding and then work with the lists off your computer, print out the lists for a wedding planning binder or use the checklists directly through a wedding planner organizer.
