Newly Engaged Checklist

  1. Start a binder- You’re going to want one place to keep all your information regarding  budget, vendors, guest lists and more.
  2. Throw/be thrown an engagement party- This is the first of the showers and should be about celebrating the couple.
  3. Book a wedding planner – they will help you pull it all together!
  4. Pick a venue and reserve your date- Getting the date you want is typically the most challenging part so the sooner you book, the more likely you are to get it.
  5. Start a guest list- Be careful to keep it under the max allowed at your venue.
  6. Pick your wedding party- Buy gifts or make cute cards to ask your girls to stand by your side on your big day.
  7. Start looking for vendors- Flowers, linens, photographer, videographer, music, catering, etc.
  8. Start dress shopping- really you can start dress shopping as soon as your heart desires, because let’s be honest, it’s probably one of the most exciting parts!
  9. Buy your partner’s ring- you will probably want your partner to come with you, but also feel free to surprise him with it on the big day.
  10. Start registering- guests will begin looking at your registry before your first shower.
  11. Book an officiant- If you are not getting married in a church you will most likely need to reserve one.

This newly engaged checklist is just a starting point. The Knot provides a step-by-step month-by-month checklist of everything that goes into planning a wedding. Additionally, Your Personal Wedding Checklist can be found on your laptop, iPhone and Android.
