Just a basic one I guess, things I need to do like find a location, book caterer... thats the only big things I can think of, there is some much to do and I feel like Im going to loose track of it all and if I have some sort of checklist where its all in way place, Ill feel more organized, make sense? LOL

haha definitely makes sense!! )
The #1 thing is to find your date and location -- once you have that locked down, you're good to start reserving everything else.
Next I would say, find your caterer, DJ and photographer (if you're going to have one...I'm just hiring a friend to save money)
Figure out your decorations...mine is 11 months away and I'm already buying things here and there -- I found my silk flowers in the spring sale at Joann's at 75% off!!!
Secure your baker for your cake
Start making a preliminary list of who to invite, so you can add/edit whenever you think of it
Register -- people who are not coming to your destination, and maybe some who are, are going to want to get you sometime...especially if you're having a shower
I feel like thats all I can think of for now?? I hope this helps!!

I suppose it depends if you are having a full on wedding reception with a sit down meal or just an informal get together....... we are having a party which will take the form of an evening wedding reception. The list I have in my 'scribble pad' is:
- Guest list
- Invitations & RSVP
- Guest Book
- Caterers / Food
- Table decorations / Centrepiece
- Postbox for cards
- Display of some wedding pictures
When I list it like this there doesnt seem to be a lot to organise - so why is it taking me so long to organise compare to the wedding - lol :-))))))
Hope this helps x

LOL! It doesnt seem like much, but add it to what you already have to do with the DW and it is overwhelming! Thanks so much, this is helping alot!!!!

I agree - the "normal" wedding checklists usually end up being pretty helpful!
