Marriage is one of the biggest steps in any person’s life, and your ‘big day’ is supposed to be a magical one, filled with some amazing memories of your better half as well as your friends and loved ones. However things can turn a bit sour if you don’t properly plan some of the things that need to be done that day. Here are an essential few that you need to remember.
Making a Schedule
Making an itinerary is essential for your wedding to go smoothly. Make sure that you plan out the day well in advance and list it down clearly. You will need to add in the times, as well as the people who will be in charge of specific things, into your schedule and print multiple copies to be handed around. If you have a wedding planner, you need to talk this out with them. However if you are doing things on your own, get your bridesmaids and the groomsmen involved, as well as a few relatives. By doing so you can assure that both you and your spouse, along with your parents, will have a stress free day.
Do Things Early
Get small things like choosing the simplest stationery and writing thank you speeches done early on, and out of the way. These may seem minor, but if over looked could be catastrophic a few weeks before the wedding.
Especially in the case of laser cut wedding stationery, remember that you need to send invitations to your guests as soon as possible, to make sure that all your loved ones will be there one your big day.
Try Everything Out
Don’t leave anything to chance, and try out, test and sample everything before the big day. This is especially the case when it comes to clothes and shoes, for the bride and groom as well as the bridal party. Make sure your dress fits and that your shoes are comfortable. If you do find that your shoes are uncomfortable, but you do not want to compromise, then you can always arrange to have a pair of flats on standby to wear after all the photographs have been taken. You will also need to try out the food as well as the cake that will be served on the day to make sure that everything is to your liking.
Talk to External Parties
While you and your family may be aware of all the minor details of the day, external parties such as your band, caterers and photographer, may not know the bigger picture. Make sure you talk them through the entire days schedule so that they may be able to incorporate any changes they need with regard to it.
