A wedding planning checklist is essentially a list of tasks and elements that need to be carried out for your wedding day. The internet is full of such checklists with most being freely available to download and print out. Whilst these wedding planning checklists provide you with a valuable aid to successful wedding, it is also a good idea to produce your own lists. Essentially the checklists you will download will be generic to most types of wedding. However, no two weddings are the same and you will need to edit them to make them fit with your wedding requirements. Aside from being a list of tasks, they will usually be broken down into shorter lists, which are dated to be carried out at various times during your wedding planning phase. For instance, they will be broken down into 12 months, 9 months, 6 months etc all with different tasks which need to be completed at this time. The average period for planning a wedding is 18 months, but weddings can be planned in longer or shorter time frames so you will need to adjust the planning checklists to suit the time frame you have in mind. Good checklists should also include a wedding budget planner so you can assign your budget to each element of your wedding day.
