Aside from the main set of checklists, it is a good idea to create your own checklists each day, with tasks to be completed that day. Checklists do not include detailed tasks such as meeting with the florist, tasting wedding cakes or confirming numbers with the caterers. A bound diary can be a useful tool in this case or purchase a blank sturdy notebook which you can fit in your handbook and which can be used for everything from checklists to contact numbers. Creating your own checklists is easy to do however, at the start of your planning it can be advisable to use a generic set of wedding planning checklists so you know everything you will need to include on your own lists. Checklists will become invaluable tools as you proceed through your wedding planning and used properly and regularly they will go a long way to ensuring nothing is forgotten for your big day.
A Smart Tip _ Here\'s a great idea even before you contact a wedding coordinator. You can create an initial wedding planning checklist during the initial planning stage with your future husband and your family. Ask them to pitch in with the ideas as well as with the canvassing of the major necessities [reservations, catering, flower arrangements, salon, etc.]. You can also do some research on the internet just to get an idea of the pricing as well as the possible needs that you may have not yet tackled. From your accomplished initial checklist, you\'ll have an idea of how much work should be done and how much money you will need. Just in case you\'re able to figure out the costing and everything you need for your wedding, you can then decide if hiring a wedding coordinator is still necessary. This tip is ideal for those who are really tight on their budgets because hiring a wedding coordinator will really cost you a lot. But hey, if you have the means, no one\'s stopping you. The idea is to be prepared and organized so you\'ll be stress_free on your wedding.
