well lets start with the ceremony

you will need:
Officiant or priest, etc ( someone to marry you)
a place for the ceremony ( park, church, etc.)
decorations ( chairs, pew/chair bows, arch, flowers)
wedding gown
bridesmaids gifts ( could give them all matching jewelry)
invitations to the wedding
programs for what songs are playing, who is who, etc
the rings for the bride and groom

i think that is everything for the ceremony so moving onto the reception
you will need:

a place to have your reception( you could do the ceremony and the reception all at a hotel so then people didnt have to drive anywhere)
dj/ or band
food and drinks ( alcohol and non alcohol) champagne or something to do toasts with
plates, silverwear, napkins
table clothes
centerpieces and other decorations

I think that might be it, there is alot to list so if you want help with anything please feel free to email me @ kendi_schaeffer@yahoo.com

Depends on what kind of wedding you want. You basically need a bride, groom, location, marriage license, minister, flowers, cake, invitations, punch, photographer, decorations, pare/plastic cups, plates, and silverware. You may need table cloths and centerpieces too. Generally, once you have the location picked out, everything else kind of falls into place… Oh yeah, and whatever you want to wear…

You need $25 to get a wedding planning book from Borders. I got the complete year in wedding planning. It gave me a month by month suggusting on what to do. They said 12 months from wedding date do this…11 months do that..blah blah blah

I’ve only been to 3 weddings so I needed all the help I could get. I love my book. When I completed a task, I put a check by it.

theknot.com has a list similar. But I like the book.
