Wedding Checklists – A Go-To Tool for Planning the Perfect Day

Once the excitement of the engagement slowly wears off, couples now are tasked in organising their wedding. Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, leading the couple to go onto the internet, search for ideas, and a generic ‘to-do’-list. This general list is most likely unrelated to their type of wedding and leaves the couple more confused.

Why a Wedding Checklist?

A wedding checklist is a planning tool that assists couples in being able to track the planning process and not miss any vital steps.

The use of a checklist provides a systematic approach to complete the required tasks. Referred to as a ‘to-do list’ or ‘schedule’; checklists give a timeline of the wedding events. For example, when booking a vendor, various points of communication have to occur, such as date, location, style, payment schedule. Having a record through a checklist means you do not miss anything.

How to Utilise a Wedding Checklist?

A thorough wedding checklist saves couples time and money as it allows them to focus on the task at hand, not missing a thing. The average wedding takes 18-12 months to plan. The checklist makes the planning process manageable, giving it structure while removing the stress. Couples should enjoy planning their day. It is part of getting married.

As tempting as it might be, using a generic wedding checklist that comes off the internet, will not save time and costs. Firstly, all weddings are different. Each couple brings their uniqueness and requires a detailed wedding checklist. The checklist should be broken into these months:

18-12 months before the wedding day

9 months before the wedding day

6-4 months before the wedding day

3 months before the wedding day

2 months before the wedding day

1 month before the wedding day

2 weeks before the wedding day

1 week before the wedding day

The day before the wedding day

Having different monthly sections of the wedding checklist allows you to complete each task for that month ensuring your wedding is on track and to budget.

The e-Wedding Planner

Planning a wedding without a clear direction can be stressful. Couples either hire a wedding planner which can be pricy (the average fee to hire a wedding planner is approximately 20% of the total budget of the wedding) or wing it. And those who ‘wing’ end up with a mess and blow their budget out.

There has a big shift within the wedding industry with many couples choosing to plan their own weddings and opting not to hire wedding planners. Depending on the size of the wedding and budget, couples planning their own weddings look for inspiration through socials such as Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook wedding groups.

I recently received an email from an accredited online course offering a course on wedding planning. Curiosity took the best of me, and I enquired. Having been in the wedding industry since 1997 (showing my age), primarily designing and decorating wedding cakes, the content I received indicated that not much has changed. However, I did notice that couples were being less traditional and adopting for ‘something different’. I will not shock you with the price asked!!! Wedztyle.com

When designing my wedding cakes, there were so many questions I would ask the couples to understand their vision and ensure that the wedding cake tied into the theme perfectly. Wedding Planning is no different. It is bringing that vision to life and offering the best experience on that special day. And of course, it needs to cost-effective.

Not to take away the value that a wedding planner brings, we have created an e-wedding planner so that couples have a clear and focused guide without the hefty price tag. The wedding planner ebook can be used together with your wedding planner or on its own.

The e-wedding planner provides a methodology on how to plan a wedding. It gives useful tips across all aspects such as vendor selection, destination weddings, wedding dress selection. The list goes on. And of course, it contains budget tables under each section; keeping couples on track. wedztyle.com

WedZtyle came about by a family of sisters who feel passionate about assisting couples in planning their wedding day. Our first introduction to weddings was back in 1997, where we started on the journey of designing and decorating wedding cakes. Over time, we developed an intimate exposure within the wedding industry. Here is where we realised that a lot of couples feel overwhelmed and stressed when it comes to planning their big day. Because of this, WedZtyle was created to give couples a valuable tool to guide them in planning their special day. 

We recognise that couples have different needs. What we offer is an individualised approach that allows couples to choose what is most important to them.
