Do you ladies have a detailed schedule of how your day should go?

I'm really big on being organized and on time, however, I don't want to come across as someone who is a control freak if I have a schedule that I want EVERYONE who is helping with the wedding to stick to.

I'm having hard time remembering every little detail, too. I have so much going on right now so I'm stressing. I keep thinking I'm forgetting something!!!! Ack!

Wow you are having a really long reception! Mine is only 4 hours long.  I don't think you're a control freak for having an itinerary, it's important that everyone knows what to be doing and when, that way nothing gets overlooked!  I need to come up with mine!

I love organization!!  Just remember... not everything may go as planning on your schedule, but there's no reason to not have a detailed schedule of the day!!

Every event planner has a production schedule. which has times, who's responsibility it is, what the task is. It includes everything including when vendors arrive, when set-up is done ect. so you are very on track.
