Officiant _ Choose the individual to perform ceremony and acquire all legal documents. Rehearsal _ Invitations, venue, favors, gifts, speeches, and readings will take some coordination. Rings _ Purchase, re_size and engrave. Makeover _ Hairstyle, cut, color, manicure, and pedicure. Music _ Wedding reception songs, wedding songs first dance, DJ, etc. And, much, much more. A project this big is going to have so many things going on that you\'ll quickly get blown off course if you\'re not able to stay on top of everything. The earlier phases are certainly not as demanding, but as time progresses, inertia and the clock will begin to work against you if you don\'t have everything under control. So, now is the time to set up the framework that will help you manage the insanity. The most important consideration here is to GET organized and to STAY organized and by developing a well thought out wedding checklist timeline, you\'ll be well on your way to a satisfying and highly successful outcome.
First off, you should know that Jill is a very spontaneous person; \"plan\" just isn\'t a word that has ever entered her vocabulary. She has sisters that are much more suited to planning this type of a party, but it really doesn\'t matter. No matter how unorganized you think you are, planning a successful party is as easy as creating a party planning checklist. I took all of the Post_Its, and with Jill\'s help, we organized them into a puzzle of sorts. This puzzle was the start of her checklist. I could see that she had written down names of places, dates and times, menu ideas, theme ideas, and people\'s names. Everything we need for a good checklist seemed to be on the notes.
