Wedding Planning Checklist

Even the most organised among us need checklists! Here is a great guide to help you get started - 12 months and counting!

  • Have a discussion to see what you both would/would not like.
  • Start a guest list and revisit it often.
  • Do a budget.
  • Decide who is paying for what – and will you accept help from family.
  • It may not be a bad idea to take out wedding insurance - just in case!
  • Decide what season you would like and set the date.
  • Book ceremony venue.
  • Visit and book your reception venue.
  • Decide who you would like to be your bridesmaids and groomsmen and ask them if they are happy to do it.
  • Decide what kind of entertainment you want, for the ceremony and the venue.

  • Research and consider options for your venue and ceremony decor.
  • Research and book photographer, videographer, band, and wedding planner if desired. Check with your Wedding Venue, they will often recommend suppliers.
  • Have a look online to see what wedding gowns are popular and create a Pinterest Board for the ones you like.
  • Book an appointment with a few different bridal shops.
  • Why not send a 'Save the Date' card just to give friends and family advance notice.
  • Are you planning on doing anything yourself, make a list of DIY projects that need doing and ask your bridal party to help.
  • Start a wedding website or planning diary to make sure nothing is missed!

Happy Planning!

  1. Hello dear, I am also a wedding planner and the list you have shared here is perfect, because I also follow the same checklist and never fail to do my work accurately. It really makes me feel satisfied.
