Next on your checklist should will be details about where the party will be held. If you are undecided about where to host the party, you can always check out local halls, restaurants or even local parks, depending on the theme and type of party you are hosting. With a little research, you may find all sorts of unusual and interesting places which allow social events. Include on your checklist the venues which might be a good fit and contact them to see if they are available the date and time you like to have your party and to also get price information. You will also need to find out if the venue supplies the food, the menu selections offered and the price. When you have pricing information, you can decide if you would rather have the celebration at your home. If you do decide to have the party at home, you can hire a catering company to prepare and serve the food or you can make the food yourself..
On your check list you will start off with a pre wedding checklist. On that list you will put together all your ideas. Such as what you want for centerpieces, favors, invitations, theme, colors. The list will be added and added to over and over again. As you purchase the items on your check list you will cross them out or check next to them saying that you completed that task. For the ceremony checklist you will want to share this with your church or wherever you are getting married at. Some of your ideas may not be acceptable at some locations due to religion or safety procedures. For example you could want to have rice thrown in the air and your ceremony site my not allow that. Another example is some garden themed wedding only allow a certain number of chairs due to trying to preserve the ground. Once you know what you can and can't do at your ceremony you will want a check list of qualities of a justice of the peace or whoever else marries you. You will also need to find out what you need to supply yourself at your ceremony sites such as speakers for music, and chairs for your guest. Once you know what you need add it to your wedding checklist and once you finish that task take it off the list. You will always want to add a section of your wedding checklist for the reception. In this section you will have an area for reception site. Make sure you have a list of all the things you want in a reception site and don't settle for anything else. It's your special day. You will also need to think about music at your reception. You will also need to make a list of all the food choices you would like. When having a food tasting bring your list to check off the foods you like and foods you didn't like.
