Getting married is exciting, but for those without someone of their own to love, weddings can be downright unpleasant. If you don't want to be dateless at the next wedding you attend, try dating services or even ask a friend to join you. Your next wedding date could be the one you end up marrying yourself, so check out those Ohio singles!


This checklist provides some ideas about most of the things you will do in preparation for your wedding. Remember, these are only ideas of things to consider, and many items may not be applicable to you. Some duties apply strictly to the bride and others to the groom. However, the majority of the tasks can be accomplished by BOTH the bride and groom!

Some of the items presented here are obvious and others are little details. Regardless, it helps to manage your time by writing done all the things that need to be done. It feels good to cross things of the list as you go, and hopefully it will help cut down on your stress by realizing how organized you are (as opposed to only looking at how big your list is!). The basic order of events is more important than the exact time-line here, so change the time-line to fit your situation. Just keep in mind that the items listed in the "10 to 12 months prior" category should be done first and as soon as possible if you want to get your first choice in reception location, etc.
