The Best Wedding Planning Checklist

When I decided to write the wedding planning book, "Best Wedding Ever" I wanted to make sure you had a pretty comprehensive, and what I consider the best wedding planning checklist to help you plan your wedding day.

Now when I say the best wedding planning checklist - I really mean the best I could create without knowing exactly what your wedding plans are as your wedding planner or even your day-of wedding coordinator. What I mean by that, is your wedding your way - is just that. Your wedding planning checklist may look different if you are planning a small wedding with your closest friends and family by the beach (sounds like a heavenly day), vs. someone that may be planning a 300 person wedding in downtown Austin at the historical The Driskill hotel. So with that said, as you look at the timeline checklist, or month to month timeline for your wedding, customize it to your wedding style, your wedding timing, your wedding budget and your wedding details.

Another thing to consider when looking at this wedding checklist is your personal things that may be included in your day. For instance, you may be headed out for your bachelorette night on 6th street in downtown Austin the week of your wedding, or maybe you are doing a rental boat day on lake Austin 3 months before your wedding, or maybe you and your girls are going to do spa treatments at Mokara Spa at Omni Barton Creek Resort a month before the big day to try out the wedding venue experience first hand. Whatever the case may be, your wedding checklist will adjust according to your personal activities surrounding your wedding day.

Other things to consider when looking at your wedding checklist is those that are assisting you with different parts of your checklist. You may have hired a wedding planner and your wedding planner may be handling a lot of your checklist items for you. Or maybe the Mother of the Bride is assisting in some components of your checklist or wedding day task list. Your wedding list will adjust accordingly to the parties involved.

So without giving you the whole wedding planning book and the explanations that go along with this wedding checklist - it's a good start and wedding planning guide to follow (you will have to by my wedding planning book on amazon to get all the details.)
