As you look forward to your special day with keen excitement, an apprehension for not being able to arrange things could haunt your mind, unless a wedding day checklist is with you. The mixed feelings do not let you enjoy the event to the fullest. There are certain issues that remain unanswered and you need to resolve them. Right from choosing the best ring to be presented to your beloved to the type of music you would be tapping your feet on, everything has to be taken care of. All you need to do is just note down all the things that need your attention.
A friend of mine, Jill, came to me a couple of weeks ago to ask me for help. She was in the midst of planning her parents' 50th wedding anniversary. This is an event that should have been a joy to plan; her parents have been together for 50 years, and from what I can tell, they are still very much in love. It doesn't get much better than that. Anyway, Jill was in a harried state because the party was less than two weeks away and she felt like she didn't have a good enough handle on the party. I sat her down and asked her explain to me what she had accomplished so far. She proceeded to pull out a handful of Post_It Notes from her purse, and she dumped the wad on the table we were sitting at. "What is this," I asked her. "These notes have the stuff I've been working on for the party," she replied. I remember looking at Jill, then looking at the pile of scrap paper that was her parents' 50th anniversary party plan, and then shaking my head. This is an extreme case, but you'd be surprised how unorganized people can be when it comes to preparing for important events.
