The 12 Month Wedding Checklist Every Indian Bride Needs
BY The WMG Bride | 07 Sep, 2016
Unless you have been living under a rock, you would know that the WedMeGood app has one of the best wedding checklists around- and when you're a bride-to-be, they can really come in really handy. Not only can you tick off items and mark them as completed, but it reminds you of all the pending items you need to do, which can all get a little overwhelming when the wedding is right around the corner! Plus, with all that is happening, a checklist can ensure that you're right on track with your wedding planning and booking. We've made a 12-month checklist for brides, so you start off on the right note, and are perfectly on track as you approach your wedding. While we do have a virtual checklist available on the app, where you can strike off things, we also do realise some of you like working with a pen and paper instead, so here is the ultimate wedding checklist for Indian brides, especially for the non-tech geeks, which can be print out and used.
That seems like a lot of work to do, but don't let it bog you down- it's a 12-month checklist, so that's a whole year of planning, and it's quite spread out. Stick to this, especially if you're planning you're own wedding, and we are 90% sure that you will be right on track! Here are a few more pointers to keep in mind:
- If you don't have the luxury of a year of planning, then just speed up the process, but working in this order will help- getting the date and the venue should be priority then and everything else can follow.
- Prioritising and delegating really helps. Don't be shy to ask for help and offload a couple of things to your near and dear ones who are willing to help.
- Keep a separate notebook or journal with all your wedding related stuff in it. Helps keep all the planning sorted and organised.
- Have another person apart from both of you involved in the wedding planning as well if you don't have a planner. Could be a parent, sibling or your bestie, who knows your vision and the vendors involved. This will be very handy during the wedding.
- Keep a list of vendors as and when you keep finalising them, and mention everything in one place- the price agreed upon, the advance payment made, the mode of payment, cheque no. etc.
- On the day of the wedding, hand someone the whole list of vendors involved along with their phone numbers to someone trusted so that they can keep a track in case there's a doubt or something goes wrong without disturbing you unless very urgent.
- Keep enough cash with you on the wedding day to pay up vendors after the wedding is over, or tie up some other mode with them beforehand. You don't want to be heading to the ATM last minute to withdraw.
So this would be the perfect Indian wedding checklist for any couple in the planning process. A bridal list of things to buy, things to do and of course, stay on course with this Indian wedding checklist.
