You will be quite surprised as you start writing out your checklist how it will grow and grow over the weeks and months as you move towards your wedding date. It will become important to receive input from your partner and other people will help you realize everything that is required.
Rather than trying to go into too much detail right from the start it is best to begin your checklist with the most important items and then go into more depth on your list as you think more and more about those items.
Start your list of the basic headings of: dress, flowers, reception and guests.
Then under each of these headings add more detail. For example, under the heading dress you would list your wedding dress, your bridesmaids' dresses and possibly even your mother and mother-in-law's dresses. This way it is easy to coordinate all of the dresses together.
Then you would start listing the various locations find your dresses. These may include wedding magazines, dressmakers, wedding shops.
Then you drill down even further in these lists and write down prices of the various solutions that you have found.
As you can see the list will grow bigger and bigger until you find every solution that suits your needs.
You can then create another list of items that have been solved and these can be checked off as they are implemented; for instance the second list might have the date where you will get your dress fitting, the name address and phone number of the dressmaker and other such details that you will need at hand at all times.
By staying well-organized at all times and keeping all these details in one place you will find that the time leading up to your wedding will be a lot less stressful and quite possibly less expensive.
