Whether you are getting married in a year or in a few months, here is a simple checklist of things that will help to assist getting you down the aisle.  If they helped my friend wrap everything, and I mean “everything” up, then they can help you.  The first step when you find out is to tell everyone and decide what items you will be taking care of yourself.  For instance, will you be catering the food yourself.  What party favors will you be taking care of or will you ask the caterer to do it?  Will you have a family member take pictures or hire a photographer?  These are all questions that need to be considered.  Do not wait until the last minute to think about them.
