A wedding takes a lot of time and effort to plan. That’s why you want to give yourself at least 12-14 months of lead-up time, so you can get everything done without being overwhelmed or stressed out.
There are some things you need to have on your wedding planning checklist, no matter how long or short your engagement is. Keep reading to find out what these wedding checklist items are.
1. Hair and Makeup Trial
Do not forget to test your hair and makeup at least once before your actual wedding day. If you realize that your hair and makeup are terrible and don’t match the idea you had in your head on your wedding day, then you have no time to fix or change it.
Give yourself the time and possibility to find another hair and makeup artist, or to try something new, if you don’t like the first iteration. This way you don’t have to hate all your wedding pictures because you aren’t happy with the final results of your hair and makeup.
Your hair and makeup should also match all the dresses for wedding reception you’ve chosen to change into.
2. Write Your Vows
This is something that a lot of couples end up leaving till the last minute because they are so busy organizing and planning everything else. That’s why you need to put this on top of your wedding checklist.
If you do that, then you will have enough time to put down on paper what your partner means to you and how much you are looking forward to being betrothed to them.
3. Seating Chart
This is another one that most brides and grooms don’t want to think about because it can be a can of worms just waiting to erupt. If you can put this ahead of the list and just get it over with (eat the frog as Brian Tracy would say), then you don’t have to worry about it any longer.
4. Choose Your Wedding Photograph Venue
You probably chose your engagement photos venue with great care and you need to put the same effort into choosing where you will take your wedding photographs. Some of them will be at the reception hall itself.
But you will want to take the bridal party somewhere beautiful and take some pictures there as well, so you can memorialize this beautiful day forever. Choose this spot based on some memory from your time together or a charming spot that’s close to the reception hall.
