Tips and Tricks: We’re Sharing Our Wedding Checklist!

During the wedding planning process, one question we will inevitably get from brides is “Am I forgetting anything??” Odds are, if you’re reading this, you’ve thought that or are currently thinking it too. 🙂

To be honest, the two of us were struggling with what to post on our blog today, until we both had a revelation: We have an artillery of information when it comes to helping brides stay on top of their tasks and lists, so why would we hoard that information and keep it a secret?! This information is valuable,  and our whole goal is to HELP and PROVIDE that value to our clients! 

We want all of our brides to be at ease, calm, and enjoy the planning process. Also, we find no greater satisfaction than writing out lists upon lists, then crossing items off those lists once they’re accomplished. Right?! So rewarding. 

With that in mind, we thought we’d share with all of you a very special list near and dear to our hearts… our very own Elevate Events Wedding Checklist

This checklist has been around in various forms for nearly four years, and whether our clients know it or not, has been printed out each and every time we have booked a wedding! This list is our version of a security blanket; we don’t always need it during the planning process, but it’s a great resource to keep around for those moments when all of us think “…okay, that’s done, what next?” 

So, without further ado, please enjoy/use/share/print/frame/love our very own Wedding Checklist! This list is by no means the “be all, end all” when planning your wedding; and it’s definitely not in the perfect order or contains exact information for all kinds of weddings.  Rather, we consider it as more of a guideline – one of those resources you can bookmark or keep in your planning folder for reference, just to stay assured that you’re on top of all the major items you’ll need to think about while planning the most exciting day of your life! 

Please enjoy, and let us know if you have questions!
