Your FREE Wedding Day Run sheet

All of the planning over the past 12-18 months has led to your Wedding Day. 

Creating a Wedding Day run sheet will ensure your Bridal party (maid of honour, bridesmaid, fiancée, best man, groomsmen), your ceremony, reception venue, florist, photographer and the car hire know when and where they need to be.   Most of all once you have completed your run sheet, print a copy of each of your suppliers and the bridal party.

At Just as Planned we have created a template for you to complete your own Wedding Day run sheet.

Below is an example of a run sheet and some hints and tips to make sure your wedding day goes… Just as Planned.
