The Fabulous and Fun Wedding Breakdown Structure

WWell, I have been made fun of by a friend (who shall remain unnamed, you know who you are) about this comment I made a couple weeks ago: “We are getting closer and closer to the fabulous and fun wedding breakdown structure.” He called it the “Nerdiest wedding sentence ever.” I can take the teasing; it means people are reading my blog – friends and family at least.

Honestly, for some reason I actually have been excited to create my wedding work breakdown structure (WBS). I guess that makes me a nerd. I just can’t wait to see everything I need to do for my wedding laid out in front of me. Maybe then I will actually feel like I am planning my wedding. Or, maybe I will have a panic attack because I will realize how much I actually have to do. I am hoping the former will be the case and not the latter.

Hold onto your hats because the day has finally arrived. Tonight I am going to go home and start work on my WBS. For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about, here is a little explanation from Systemation:

A deliverable-oriented hierarchical decomposition of the work to be executed by the project team to accomplish the project objectives and create the required deliverables. It organizes and defines the total scope of the project.

Basically, you start with a main task like choosing vendors. And then break it down into what vendors you need to choose. And then for each of those vendors you create tasks and so on and so forth. You end up with a big tree-like creature.

Don’t worry, I’ll walk you through it over the next few weeks. So stay tuned for lots more WBS fun.
