101 CHEAT SHEET
Start here! Why? Because this is the guide I first use with couples to ensure we have the general overview of the wedding day. Thus, creating a roadmap for the next steps in planning!
⬤ The Important Details: The wedding & rehearsal date, venue, estimated guest & wedding party attendees and couple’s information.
⬤ The Overview: The ceremony & reception times, colors & season, important questions to ask each other and an engagement fun fact of your story as a couple.
⬤ The Wedding Vendors: Check off the vendors you have already booked and quickly figure out which ones you need to start searching for creating your dream day.
STOP using a checklist by month and START planning by wedding vendor priority. Why? Because not every couple starts at the same time and it’s easier to take it one vendor at a time!
⬤ Discover your big picture tasks to check off your list
⬤ Find out all the little gritty details you need to know by wedding vendor
⬤ Keep on track whether you are planning 2 years out or 6 months out, this will be your personal organizer
⬤ A 13-page checklist that easily allows you to manage on all your devices, so you can plan anywhere!
START using a budget that is regional to where you live. Why? Because not every couple plans at the same place and the average wedding costs per wedding vendor varies!
