Yes, I’m a Power Point nerd

Posted on May 4, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

With less than 30 days to go, I could no longer ignore the “what time?” questions: “What time should I be there?” “What time will they be there?”  “What time will it end?”  “How long will it take?”  Nothing makes me feel less in control than not knowing where the pieces fit into the big picture, so during an interminable conference call, I half-*ssed a wedding day overview slide in Power Point.  Yes, Power Point.  Yes, a Wedding Day Slide.  Shut up, it made me feel better.


I started with Mrs. Daffodil’s wedding workplan file, then customized away.  Now I can see who will be where and for how long all day long… and then maybe I won’t have to answer questions on our wedding day.

But what about people who can’t read charts (I hear they exist)? Voila!


Each role gets their own timeline column (which I obviously haven’t finished… I had to participate in the conference call at that point).  I’ll do one more slide with a weekend event list and contact info next.  Whew.  Relief.

Anyone else nerd’ing out on their wedding day prep?

how do i do this?! please share!!!!!

I can email the file to you if you have Power Point… will that work?

This is one of the reasons you’re my fav wedding blogger!

Jesse – I just sent you the file. If anyone else wants it, post a comment and use your email address when you login and I’ll send it to you. No need to display your email addy if you don’t want to!

Katherine – thanks! Smoochies!

It’s like we are one in the same…….although my wedding isn’t until 2010 so I haven’t started any major planning so no Power Point shows (yet). I would love the file for this so when it does come time for me to be anal about EVERY detail imaginable I can already be prepared. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Amy Jo – I just emailed it to you.

Love your powerpoint timeline – can you please email it to me?

I think I deleted the template on my PC, but you can download it from Weddingbee:

Where's The Comment Form?


    I’ve been there, done that, got the t-shirt (and divorce papers) to prove it. Here I am again, pledging my life to my (new) love with eyes wide open (and heart racing) knowing full well how emotionally traumatic this can end… and doing it anyway.
