365 Days to Go: Wedding Checklist

Planning a wedding has got to be one of the most stressful things to have to do - and to think I wanted to do this as my job. All throughout college I was wanting to go into Event Planning and focusing on Weddings. I did an internship my Senior Year with Adams & Events and fell in love, but after college trying to find a job in that particular industry was a lot harder than I ever imagined. So that is how I ended up where I am now. But since planning my own wedding, I have seen how much these wedding coordinators need to be praised and thanked a million times over.

Today marks exactly 1 year until Timothy and I get married and I think I have done a good amount of planning but still have a ways to go!

  1. I was just married back in October - and I am oober organized, and I can plan anything as long as I have a binder with checklist - but wedding planning, was it's OWN animal!

    One year is going to fly by - and like everyone tells you. Try not to stress all of the little things - Whatever happens will result in a PERFECT and MEMORABLE day.

  2. Wow that is a lot to do, I've never really thought through all of the details of wedding planning! It looks like you're organized and have a handle on everything though, I hope you have so much fun and don't stress too much :)
