Creating a Wedding Planning List

April 17, 2023

Planning a wedding is a complex process that requires a lot of time, effort, and attention to detail. One of the most important aspects of wedding planning is creating a comprehensive list of everything you need to do to make your big day successful. In this blog, we want all of our MRP couples to learn the step-by-step guide on how to create a list for your wedding planning process.

Step 1: Brainstorming

The first step in creating a wedding planning list is to brainstorm everything you need to do. Sit down with your partner and make a list of all the tasks and activities you can think of. Include everything from selecting a venue and hiring vendors to design invitations and planning your honeymoon. Don’t worry about organizing your list just yet – the goal at this stage is to simply get everything down on paper.

Step 2: Prioritization

Once you have a complete list of tasks, it’s time to prioritize them. Start by identifying the most important tasks that need to be completed first. This may include booking a venue, hiring a wedding planner and your wedding photographer, and selecting your wedding party. Rank these tasks in order of importance, and make sure to focus on them first.

Step 3: Categorization

Next, categorize your tasks into different sections. For example, you may want to separate your list into categories such as “venue,” “vendors,” “attire,” “decor,” and “food and beverages.” This will help you stay organized and ensure you don’t overlook any important details.

Step 4: Timeline

After categorizing your tasks, it’s time to create a timeline for each one. Determine when each task must be completed and add it to your list. Be sure to factor in any deadlines, such as booking a venue or ordering invitations, to ensure that you stay on track.

Step 5: Delegation

Finally, decide who will be responsible for each task. If you have a wedding planner, they will likely handle many of the tasks on your list. However, there may be some tasks that you want to handle personally or delegate to friends and family members. Make sure to clearly communicate who is responsible for each task to avoid any confusion.

Creating a wedding planning list may seem overwhelming, but by following these steps, you can stay organized and ensure that nothing falls through the cracks. Remember to prioritize your tasks, categorize them into sections, create a timeline, and delegate responsibilities. With a well-planned list, you can relax and enjoy the wedding planning process, knowing that everything is under control.

WHY we're the perfect match


Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way. 


"Not only she is a talented photographer,
she is an amazing person."

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Marcela. Not only is she a talented photographer, she is an amazing person. She coached us through the whole process. She even took time to talk me through different outfits and what would look best in photos. Most of my friends wait months and months for their photos, Marcela had a very quick turn around. She is very passionate about her art and I can’t wait to work with her again in the future.


"Marcela is there for you. Everything is about you, your husband, your family and what makes YOU feel beautiful, handsome and happy.."

"When I started looking for a photographer for our wedding, my goal was to find someone who had light and airy aesthetics. I wanted to find someone who could capture what looked like a dream. I searched and searched until I finally stubbled upon Marcela through “the knot”. I cannot put into words how grateful I am to have found her. Not only did she capture photo after photo, leaving me with tears in my eyes and a full heart, but she became a friend to us..."
