Most wedding planners have a wedding monthly to-do list, wedding timelines, budgets and will help keep you on top of all your wedding appointments.

– Create a timeline outlining all the major tasks that needs to get done. For each task that you outline, allocate an appropriate amount of time to get through that particular task. You might also want to delegate some tasks, eg. : 1. Groom: Create realistic wedding budget 2.Bride- Source out potential wedding venue.  Set aside one day a week to talk about your progress and what you have accomplished. If you don’t get to a task (because life happens, as we all know), don’t stress yourself.  Adjust the due date!

Decision making

 -Take your time deciding on the vendors that you want to book. Deal with one vendor at a time as this can become overwhelming. Schedule all your payment to stay on top of it.

Have an Overall Picture

– Have an overall idea of what you would like your wedding to look and feel like. Create a list of the must have items vs. it would be nice to have if the budget allows list. Stick to your plan as much as possible otherwise things can start to get stressful very fast. If you mind is set on getting a photobooth but you do not have the budget for it, let it go if it is on your “it would be nice to have list if the budget allows”. Definitely compromise as much as possible. I would greatly suggest making this list as soon as the budget is created. It will make it very easy on you.

Wedding in a box package
