Looking for a wedding checklist?
I am a self confessed wedding checklist-aholic – if there is such a term!
One of the best investments you can make for your wedding is a small notebook – as small as possible to carry around with you where ever you go.
If you think of an idea, see something you might use for your wedding, a song you would like played at your wedding reception – anything that comes to mind write it down in your note book – those shoes, that tie, those shoes, that gift for the bridesmaid – wite it in your notebook. It will save you all the worry about forgetting things, and anything you do forget – where will it be………in your notebook – it will be the best 50p you spend on your wedding!
When you start out planning your wedding having a wedding checklist to act as a guide is very useful. There are loads of wedding checklists available on-line but none will be the perfect match for your wedding.
What I suggest is having a look at a few and form your own wedding checklist picking out the best and most relevant items and adding in your own.
Here are some examples from the internet I have research out for you to get you on your way:-
