Wedding Checklist

1:03:00 PM

Let's make a list!

Woohoo! Ej and I we're getting married in less than 4 months, I'm hoping to finish all the "must haves" items by November so we could have weeks to finalize, relax and rest. I've been wanting to create a list from the start but I always forgot.

EJ and I prepared a list of wedding suppliers for payments and balance only. We keep it updated and also our growing guest list. We don't have wedding checklist for the ceremony, reception essentials, stuffs for us to double check.

It's overwhelming when you're not sure what's next on the to-do list. Thanks God, almost everything has been taken care of at this point.

Here's an online wedding checklist for us and future brides out there who need reminders as well. I recommend get yourself a copy of W@W Wedding Primer, it has the complete list, guides and tips for all the wedding preps.
