The Sample Wedding Checklist

Wedding day is the most important day for the bride and the groom. Having everything arranged without any problems would make the day so much better. To make sure you won’t miss anything or keep it to the last minute, here is a sample check list for the big day.

The budget

The very first thing to do once you decide to get married and set a date is to set a budget. Decide how much you are going to each contribute and how much from the savings you are going to pool in. Keep a dedicated amount for each of the main things of the wedding.

The maids and the groom’s me

Select the maid of honor and the best man and the rest of the bridal party. Don’t pick too more than you can handle.

Hire a wedding planner

If you are working full time, you may not have enough time to do the whole planning yourself. Hire a planner to help with the arrangements such as decoration ideas, personalised wedding invitations, keeping track of the payments, hiring bands etc.

Guest list

Guest list is the part of the wedding that decides the cost distribution. Decide how many seats are allowed for both parties. Bride can take half and the groom can take half. Decide who you are going to invite for the wedding and make a list. If you do not know their full names, make sure to find them out prior to writing the invitations.

The dress

Every girl dreams of the wedding dress since the childhood. It is very important to get the dress of your dreams within the budget. Check the magazines to keep up with the new styles. If you cannot find the dress you like, you can always get it custom made.

Wedding theme

It has been a trend to have a theme on your big occasion. The venue, decorations, personalised wedding invitations in Sydney, the cake, the bridesmaid dresses etc are all according to the theme you pick. There are plenty of themes such as beach wedding theme, fairy tale, sky, galaxy, winter wonderland etc. For example if your big day is in summer, a beach ceremony would be a nice idea. Make sure you don’t pick a tacky theme that you would regret later. Book the venue and make sure you tell the decorators exactly what you want, to avoid the disappointment.
Apart from these main components, hiring a band, caterers and any other entertainment for the guests also need to be considered. However some venues such as hotels may give you a good deal for catering and music. But if it’s a house or a garden wedding, these also need to be sorted beforehand.
