Are you planning your wedding? Are you nervous you are going to forget to do something? Take these wedding planning tips and read on. Write these suggestions down so they don't get lost with all the other things your trying to remember.
Make a picture list for the Photographer
Nothing is worse than realizing you didn't get any pictures of you and your favorite family member or family friend. Making a list of everyone you want a picture with will help this not happen. And also doing this a soon as you can is probably best, so you still look your best. Trust me by the end of your wedding reception your hair and make up will no longer look like it did ten hours ago (which probably totally means you enjoyed yourself out on the dance floor)... and thats okay.
I know this from experience. My wedding day I forgot to get many pictures with aunts and uncles. And the only picture I have with my grandma and me, my hair was already falling and had lost any curl because of the humidity.
So take it from someone who knows. Those keepsake pictures you don't want to forget.
Don't forget to put your garder on before the dress
With all the excitement of finally getting to put on your dress, don't forget to slip that garder on before you put the dress on. First of all depending on your dress, it will probably be hard to put on after the fact. And secondly, you don't want it to be time for the bouquet and garder toss and you realize you forgot to even put it on.
when getting your dress altered, don't forget the shoes.
Wedding planning can cause lots of stress and make you forget the small details. Don't forget the shoes you will wear on your wedding day for dress alterations. Your seamstress will want to know the height of your heels, so they can know what length to make the bussle.
Forgetting your shoes may cause your dress to be the wrong length, and I can't imagine tripping over your dress all day because it's too long.
Don't forget the gifts
I'm not talking about the gifts guest bring you...though you want to make sure someone is in charge of getting those in a safe place after your wedding. I'm talking about the traditional gifts you get for people who have helped you. Usually, it is tradition for brides to get a gift for their mom and dad on their wedding day. Just a way of saying thank you for all your help with the wedding or even just thank you for always being there for me.
Another gift you don't want to forget is the officiant's gift. Usually it is a tradition to get the officiant a little something as they are doing you a big honor in marrying you.
Then again maybe it isn't a traditional wedding at all...in that case you do you!
If you want to make sure you don't forget wedding traditions ask your wedding planner for guidance on this subject.
If you don't like how something is going, tell your wedding planner or DOC
Okay this one may not be something you forget to do, but it is very important. On your day if things are being done in a way you don't like you need to tell your wedding planner or your day of coordinator. Or even better, let it be known to your wedding planner weeks beforehand how you want your wedding day to go. If you have a pet peeve or certain things trigger your emotions then let them know.
Certain parts of my wedding day felt so rushed and I started to get flustered. It didn't have to be that way. Stand up for yourself especially if you are paying for your wedding planner or DOC. Their job is to be there for you and make things the way you want it.
I hope these tips keep you from looking back and saying I wish I would have done this or that.
