Getting Married: The Ultimate Checklist

 Getting Married: The Ultimate Checklist. Preparation.jpg


You’ve popped the question, he or she said yes, and you’re over the moon… but what happens now? One of the happiest days of your life can also be the most stressful. However, if you plan properly and sort the tasks month by month with a checklist, the task becomes more exciting and less stressful. Here’s our wedding checklist to help you out when planning your special day.


Ensure you get the perfect wedding ring

Before you tie the knot, you need to make sure you have the perfect wedding ring. You’ve already picked your engagement ring, and fortunately picking a wedding ring is much easier. Give yourself a few months before the wedding date to look for a ring, you'll need time to browse, compare prices or get a ring custom made if you’re looking for something specific.

Booking in Advance

If you’re getting married during wedding season, it’s essential to book far in advance – even a year in advance if necessary. The venue is the most important thing, so make sure you book that first. You’ll need to book a photographer/videographer if you want to capture your special day, a stylist, a florist, a musician, and a cake maker.   

Purchase your dress/suit

Shopping for a wedding dress/suit is one of the most exciting parts of wedding planning. You get to look like royalty for a day and all eyes are on you. Whether you’re buying your outfit or getting it made, try to organise it months in advance so there’s enough time for any alterations. To help you find the perfect dress/suit, you could narrow down your favourite looks on a Pinterest board. If you’re having bridesmaids and groomsmen, this would be a great time to think about their outfits too.

Identify who you should invite to the wedding

Time for the guest list. Who are you inviting to your wedding? Knowing who to invite and where to place them is an important step as you need to ensure everyone is comfortable with their seating. A good idea is to get the families together and discuss the guest list so there are no surprises. The best approach is to split the list evenly between both families if you want to avoid drama.

Start planning your honeymoon

A honeymoon is a much-needed respite after the stresses of wedding planning. If you’re planning to go on honeymoon, we recommend starting early to get the best prices. Flights are usually cheaper when booked in advance, and many resorts and hotels offer early bird discounts. Be specific about what you want – whether it’s a beach holiday, a safari, or a city break. You should also set aside a honeymoon budget, as a wedding can quickly deplete your savings.

Getting jewellery insurance

Insurance might sound unromantic, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. If you’re going on a honeymoon, you should definitely consider getting travel insurance. However, something a lot of people don’t think about is jewellery and diamond ring insurance. You just bought a very expensive piece of jewellery, so you should protect it at all costs.

Q Report’s Jewellery Insurance gives you coverage for up to 125% of your insured value. You’re also able to return to your preferred or original jeweller for replacement or repair, you get comprehensive cover wherever you are in the world, we charge a fixed excess of $100, and we revalue your jewellery every 12 months – free of charge!
