Before that very special day  comes, there are certainly many wedding planning tasks to get over with. These tasks are so important they need to be done a couple of months before.


You know what we're thinking? Checklists. Every marrying couple needs one, and this blog post right here is your version of a wedding checklist. This will help you make everything easy, making you remember the important things that you should take note in order to have a successful, memorable wedding. Let's start!


1.       Make sure to make everything legal

This is the main thing you need to discuss with your partner before tying the knot. Being the first of the many final countdowns in your wedding checklist, you should be able to call ahead and determine how much it would cost and what  the requirements are for complying with marriage legalities.

2.      Meet with people whom you have a transaction with for fine-tuning of all details

Meet your photographer, videographer, caterer, florist, makeup artist, organizer, singer, violinist and the rest of the professionals that you hired to make sure that all of you are on the same page.


It is truly helpful to run a “request list” from family and friends. You can request for a complete list of wedding group shots that you need to have on your big day or you may ask your florist the final details they can add for your wedding .


3.      Conduct a run-through for your outfit with the people in your VIP list

The gown fitting and the slipping on of your wedding accessories should all be done in one day. This will allow you to think about whether you want to some improvements or alterations.


Also, we think it's best if you test out your shape wear ahead of time so you can see if it is comfortable. This will also give you ample time to change into something better. 


Here's a fancy tip. After picking up your dress, take it out from the garment bag, place it in a well-ventilated room where smoke odors will not seep into it.

4.      Prepare and arrange accessories, decor and honeymoon items you will need

Put all of your fashion accessories, reception items, and everything else in separate baskets. This will make it easy for you to simply grab your items when you need it instead of having to rummage through your room looking for your stuff.

5.     Schedule your appointments for hair, makeup and beauty treatments

Who do you want to do your hair and makeup? It can be your bridesmaids,  mom,  best friend, maid-of-honor, or other relatives. If there will be several people to assist you in your beauty regimen, it would be fantastic to have some photo-ready outfits just in case the photographer decides to take candid shots and capture the  moment on your special day! 


6.       Assign seats for everyone

Your partner, your groom squad or your bride tribe could actually help you with this one. Just make sure that you have a complete list of all the guests.

7.      Be ready to accommodate all out-of-town guests and prepare your home or have an early hotel reservation

Yes, you will be in-charge of where your relatives from the farther part of the town will stay. It's either you welcome them into your own home or you personally reserve a hotel stay for all of them. 


8.     Have a moment for exchanging a special token of love with your bride/groom

This is something that has to be only between you and your partner. It is a wonderful opportunity for you to tell your fiance your deepest feelings which you can do in so many ways. You can give “open when” letters, a one-shot long letter, or you can come up with your own creative way to express yourself, anything that makes you  feel comfortable.


9.     Plan out a quality time for yourself and another time for a fun date with your best friends

Months before your wedding,  your calendar will certainly be packed with appointments, making you busy big time. With that, you need to schedule in advance a time to be spent with your best friends - no planning, no anything about weddings, just a special bonding time with your best friends. You can either have a picnic, a massage together, or you can just do whatever you used to do together before you decided to tie the knot.


10.  Keep in mind that everything will turn out great

Aside from all those things you need to discuss with your partner before tying the knot, you should also remind yourself that everything will turn out great. Wedding planning is certainly a busy time for the couple, but it's nothing short of fun, and everything turns out great in the end.

 Remember to just repeat all the positive things in your mind, pray that everything will be worth it, and believe that it will all turn out great.
