Simple Wedding Day Details to Never Forget….


No matter if you’re one month into planning or a week from saying ‘I do!’ You quickly realize that there are a million details and decisions...


..It’s easy to miss even simple things when planning your wedding day. So we’ve compiled a list of Details to Never Forget…




FINAL GOWN FITTING.

Now, this may seem obvious enough that you’d think, ‘how could I forget?’ Most bridal boutiques have an in-house seamstress that will take care of your fittings and scheduling. However, if you’ve bought your dress online or maybe from a boutique that wasn’t local to you, that responsibility of scheduling fittings falls to you! Make sure to schedule them in advance, so it’s one less thing on your list…




EAT!


We spend so much time planning the meal for the guests that it’s easy to forget about the rest of the day. Maybe your Maid of Honor is the queen of planning morning breakfast and mimosas. However, plan a light lunch or have plenty of easy snacks handy. And Drink lots of WATER! You wouldn’t want to risk being lightheaded when saying ‘I do!’ or want those dinner toasts to affect your Thank You speech…



"Umm..Thanks Everyone! Cheers!" (Hopefully Not Your Wedding Speech)


PICKING YOUR CREW.


You may think picking your crew is only your bridal party, but it will include more. Choosing your bridal party is important, especially if you plan to delegate tasks before and on the Big Day! You will realize you can’t be in every place all the time, especially on the day of your wedding. So picking a Maid/Matron of Honor or Personal Attendant that you trust to make decisions or handle situations; will ultimately help your day go smoother!

Besides your wedding party, plan a crew to set up and tear down. This may be close friends, aunts/uncles, or other family members. Or possibly hire someone you know and trust to be in charge of setting up, tearing down, or both…




GETTING READY OUTFIT OR APPAREL.


We’ve all seen the adorable bridal party morning pictures, right? Sometimes they have matching robes, shirts, PJs, slippers, etc. Now maybe this isn’t something on your list of musts.

However, if having a pre-wedding photo op is something you want, there are lots of options for you! Check out your local screen printers to see if they have some ideas. Etsy is a great option for many different ideas with various price points too! Keep it simple by wearing the same color or add their name with Bride’s Crew below. The options are endless…




CHANGE OF SHOES.

Here is another easy thing that gets forgotten. Make sure to pack a pair of shoes for the reception or the ride home. It’s a long day, and your feet will deserve a break from those beautiful wedding shoes…






TRANSPORTATION.

Transportation is something you will discuss at some point in the planning process. Whether you have your ceremony and reception at the same venue or two separate places. You and your fiance may need to discuss transportation options for your bridal party, family, or possibly guests.

When looking at Venues and/or Hotel options, this may be a topic you’ll want to ask about. They may provide transportation or have a preferred transportation company they recommend…



GRATUITIES.

Gratuities for your vendors are always appreciated. Whether it be your caterers who staffed your meal with waitstaff, your band who made sure to keep the party going even when they took a singing break or your bartenders who listen to your Uncle’s jokes but don’t overserve him. Pay what you see fit and can afford, but any amount is appreciated…



DO NOT PLAYLIST.

Is there a song, genre, or wedding dance you can not stand? Be sure to add it to your Do Not Play list that you give your DJ or band. Also, give them ideas or music genres that you think your wedding guests will most likely get up and dance to!..




…Hopefully, this list will give you a great start to details you haven’t thought about yet; Or possibly some you may need to address before the Big Day coming up!
