Our Wedding Checklist

Use the checklist below to help you focus on the high priority tasks that will drive future wedding planning decisions. The services to hire are listed in order of priority with the top ones to be completed within the first 3-4 months of the wedding planning process. 

To save you time (and for vendors to take you more seriously), we recommend only meeting with wedding professionals once you have;

        1. your ceremony and reception venue, and
        2. your wedding date locked in.
