    Hi Emilie!! Unfortunately, I haven't been able to send my invitations in time. Cause I'm still looking for my ceremoy venue. And I think that i am this close to choose the same place I am doing the reception for the ceremony.

    And for the invitations, I am sending them by email cause everybody is so far away so me and my fiancé decided it will be best.

    Thank you for all your help Emilie and everyone!Smiley heart

    I needed a list so I could keep track of everything. I made a rough list on my own and then I came on wedding wire and they have a list you can follow and you are able to add things in. You can keep track of what vendors you have booked and what still needs to be booked and there are checklists to check out with a timeline - for example "12 months before the wedding, 9 months before the wedding"... This can help you so you know when it might be a good time to start planning certain aspects of your wedding. You can also keep track of your budget on here.You can write in the estimate of the how much the vendor will be, then write in the total cost, how much you have paid off and keep track of any payments you have made and then it will tell you how much you owe. You can add things in here as well if you don't see it on the list. You are also able to keep track of guests on here... You can write in all the guests who are invited, if they are attending the wedding (after invites have been sent out of course), what meal they will be eating (kids, adults, vegetarian, gluten free, vegan ect), and you can arrange the tables and actually place the guests at the tables to see what works and what doesn't! I have found it to be super helpful! Anyways I hope all of this helps you out in some way!

    This wedding wire has a great checklist for you that you can delete or add things that you want or don't want, as I think some others have already pointed out. I also googled and printed off a list that I like that I then copied into my own book because I like to write things down but you don't need to. I am using the 2 things to double check where I am. The budget tool is good on the site as well. Smiley smile

    Thank you Emilie. I've already got my venues. Now I am looking for the big details, like photographer, decors, DJ and stuff. But the most important part is that I am doing the best I can on the invitations cause I want to send them at least next week.

    I feel your pain! Getting organized is tough- I LOVE the pre made to-do list on wedding wire. (go to"my wedding, and it will drop down).

    It has a premade list, that you can customize to suit your wedding! it helped me get on the right track.

    I also found it easier to find my starting point by deciding what big important things I HAD to have (nice venue, certain date etc). Once you decide what parts matter most, book those, and arrange details around that.

    A guest list is a good start too, as budget and venue options are heavily impacted by how many people are coming!

    I hope this helps- but if it doesn't, please let me know what you are struggling with and I'll keep trying!
