This happens when you try to take all the visions in your head about how your special day will go and join them with the reality of wedding planning. Before you get discouraged, try this tactic to get started on the right foot.
Checklists Are Your Friends
When I begin planning an event, I think about everything that I want to happen and then dissect each part to decide on the tasks at hand. My checklist becomes my best friend because it keeps me focused on what I need to do and gives me a sense of accomplishment as I start marking things off as done. The best thing about it is that once it’s checked off the list, I can stop thinking about it and move on to the next thing. So when I get that feeling of “oh no, did I take care of this or that”, I can go to my checklist and see to my relief that I did that months ago.
Deadlines are Important
I always add timelines to my checklists. Whether it’s noting what is due in a certain time frame or a hard date that something must be done. Adding deadlines helps me to ensure that I get things done at the appropriate time. It lets me see things in chronological order to make sure I have completed everything I need.
Easy To Do and Customizable
The best thing about checklists is that they can be tailored to your needs. You can have a check list for the wedding ceremony, another checklist for the reception, another checklist for your stationery needs. By breaking up the tasks, it won’t seem so overwhelming when you look at everything to be done. You can be as detailed and as vague as you need to be as long as you include the crucial tasks.
So before you start to pull your hair out trying to figure out how everything will get done. Take a deep breath, grab a pad and pencil, iPad, or laptop and start making a list. There are many websites that offer customized checklists. You’ll be able to enjoy the wedding planning process instead of wondering when is going to be over.
