Wedding Planning Checklist

If you’re reading this, chances are you’re newly engaged. First, congratulations! You’re taking a huge step in your relationship and we understand just how exciting, exhilarating, and slightly terrifying that can be as a couple. We’re so glad that you found yourself here at Junebug Weddings because we care so deeply about providing all of our couples with the most thoughtful wedding planning advice available. Here, you’ll find expert advice to turn to when you need help deciding on things like where to buy your bridesmaids dresses or how to create your wedding website, but more importantly, our website will be the place where you find solid, yet flexible, recommendations for every kind of situation. No two weddings are alike, and because of that, we encourage you to color outside the lines, do things differently, and follow your hearts while planning your wedding. We want to be a resource that doesn’t tell you how to plan a wedding, but instead shows you all of the possibilities that exist for your big day.

As you start planning your wedding, you might find that having a checklist to follow is handy. Below, you’ll find an interactive wedding planning checklist as well as a PDF download that you can print out and add to your wedding binder or stick up on your fridge. Whatever works best for you! This timeline is meant to be flexible, so don’t feel bad if you miss a few to-dos along the way. Try and think of this checklist as a general outline for a standard 12-month wedding planning timeline, and feel free to adjust if you’re timeline is different. We also offer a 10-month timeline, if that better suits your schedule.
