Our Must-Have Wedding Decor Checklist

Planning a wedding is hectic and it is easy for something to slip up. That is why at Pink Book we work with our trusty checklists! To try and make it easier for all our brides-to-be we created this super handy 12-month wedding planning checklist. And now, to help you keep track of all of elements you need for your ceremony and reception decorations we present: A Printable Wedding Decor Checklist. Download it down below.

This is a short, concise list of the basic décor elements that you are going to need for your wedding ceremony and the reception. Obviously, there will be more intricate details based on your wedding theme. But this list should cover the basics. And also note that we haven’t included the wedding flowers here. That is a whole ‘nother topic on its own! So don’t forget about your bouquets, boutonnieres and floral decorations.
