Organizing the wedding yourself can turn to an overwhelming task in a matter of days, that is why you need to keep a constant track of your actions and the best way to do that is to have a wedding checklist by month.
If you think that you can put together a wedding in a matter of days you cannot be more wrong. This type of events need a thorough planning as sometimes ticking the tasks written on the checklist takes up to a couple of months.
That is why it is best that you set realistic goals that you spread on the duration of several months. Make a wedding checklist for each of the month and make sure that none of them refers to more than three tasks.
When the number is small you will feel more determined to have them achieved and you will also have more time to dedicate to each of the necessary missions. They are all equally important and they deserve the same amount of attention. Nothing is to be treated superficially when it comes to your big day as the results will reflect your hard work.
The more time you have to analyze each detail, each small piece of the puzzle that will compose your wedding, the more chances you will have to end up with a stunning, flawless event. However, it is entirely up to you to establish the order of your priorities.
Our recommendation, though, is that you do not leave essential elements for the last months. The month before the wedding should be dedicated only to finishing touches and last minute emergencies, if any should occur.
It would be ideal to have all the tasks ticked on your wedding checklist by month two weeks prior to the wedding so that you can have some time for yourself to relax so that you will not feel any nervousness, tension or stress on your wedding day.
In conclusion, have a monthly checklist that does not include more than three main tasks. Dedicate an important amount of time to each of them so that your wedding will look as close to perfection as possible. Do not overcrowd the checklist of the last month; you will feel as if you have worked in vain the whole time. And last, but not least, consult your checklist at every step; an organized activity has a lot more chances of success.
