Final ‘To Dos’ before ‘I Do’

Summer brides are finally coming to the last lap of their engagement journey. After months of making all the fun choices about wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses, reception menus and wedding invitations, it’s now time to iron out some of the nitty-gritty details for their upcoming day.

Wedding super-site TheKnot has a very comprehensive online tool to track the many tasks leading up to the big day. The checklist tool lists 188 tasks as a starting point (!!!) but allows the user to remove tasks or to add others. With an option to add reminders, schedule or assign tasks to others, and to track overall progress – this site could really be a lifesaver for any busy engaged couple.

Here is a selection of some of the less obvious but certainly important tasks from the list.

  • wedding invitationsWork on a “must-play” wedding song list (and “do-not-play song list”) for your DJ or band.
  • Brides: If you are changing your name, work on all the paperwork to make it happen.
  • Compile a “must-take” photo list for your photographer. Also re-confirm location, date, and time with your photographer.
  • Leave a copy of your honeymoon itinerary with someone in case of emergency.
  • Brides: Practice walking in your wedding shoes.
  • Arrange for someone to drop off the guest book and pen at the reception site.

If you are getting married in the upcoming summer months, do you have these items under control?
