The Wedding Checklist is our simple guide to planning a classy wedding on any budget. In 8 simple steps we will try to cover the essentials that any couple should consider when planning their wedding.

Before you get too into planning your wedding we want to remind you that getting engaged should be one of the happiest times of your lives. Try not to stress too hard. Planning a wedding can actually be a lot of fun. Our goal at is to provide you with a bit of advice, a couple laughs, and a few ideas to keep you both on task.

After the glow of the engagement starts to wear off it’s time to start all of the work that goes into planning a wedding. At this stage you really have two options. You can hire a wedding planner or you can decide to go it on your own. The easiest of the two is to enlist the services of a wedding planner. You can sit back and relax and let the professionals handle every detail of your wedding. You should know though that on average couples pay between $1000.00 and $5000.00 to hire a wedding planner. This could also be a lot more depending upon where you live, the type of wedding you are planning, and the services the planner is providing.
