What all do you need to plan a wedding?

I am planning a wedding for a friend of mine and I have some of the things I know I need, but I need to make sure that I have everything that needs to be planned out. This is the first wedding I have ever planned and I am having a hard time finding the things that need worked through online. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.

  • We started planning ours last Thursday and I'm getting married in May :) Random checklist:

    Wedding dress
    Tux for the groom
    Hair products/jewelry/makeup
    Shoes for the wedding
    Comfortable shoes for after the wedding
    Honeymoon plans, if they're planning one
    Wedding decorations
    Invitations (with RSVPs if you'd like)
    Registries, if you're planning on getting wedding gifts
    Marriage license and copies of that
    Appointment with a baker for the cake
    Wedding rings
    Band or music
    Tables and chairs for reception
    Location for reception, if it's different from the ceremony
    Caterer, or food and drinks if you're on your own
    Transportation for bride and groom

    And a few stiff drinks, a nice massage, mani/pedi, etc...because you're gonna need it with all there is to be done!

  • Make sure that the bride has approved your plans. You don't want an upset bride. You'll need to get guests lists from bride and groom, invitations, location for wedding and reception, they need to get a marriage license, flowers for bridal party, outfits for bridal party, band or dj, wedding cake/ grooms cake if needed, food for reception (caterer). I think that about covers it.

    Or a book about planning weddings.
