Wedding Checklist Planning Guide


Below is a sample of the wedding checklist and planning guide that is a part of your free wedding account.

Your wedding checklist is subdivided into nine categories of tasks that you may need to complete while planning or managing your wedding. You can also very easily sort or filter the the checklist in a number of ways to easily create sub-lists.

For each task on your wedding planning checklist, you will be able to update the status of the task, set a priority or importance of the task at any given point, assign any task to a person to help you plan, write notes for each individual task and of course assign a due date for each task. We've placed lots of very useful wedding planning tips in the notes section of our sample checklist below.

Your wedding checklist is very comprehensive. Though we started you off with the top 160 items on your checklist, you can easily add or subtract task at your own will.
