You will be quite surprised as you start writing out your checklist how it will grow with things to be done over the weeks and months prior your marriage. As you receive additional input from your partner and advice from other people it will continue to grow.
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.
You Could start your list of the basic headings of: dress, flowers, reception venue, menu and guests.
Then under each of these headings you would go into more detail. For example, under the heading of dress you would list your wedding dress, your bridesmaid's dresses and possibly even your mother and mother-in-law's dress as they will be in the wedding photos and will need to coordinate their clothes with yours for the best photo results.
Then you would start listing the various different places you need to investigate to get your dress sorted and that might include getting wedding magazines, contacting dressmakers, going to wedding dress shops and trying on the various gowns and so on.
Then you drill down even further in these lists and write down prices of the various solutions that you have found.
Then continue on with all of the other header topics until you have all of the details covered. As you can see the list will grow bigger and bigger until you find every solution that suits your nuptial needs.
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.

The pages are lined with little boxes so you may check off the item when it's completed.
