THE FIVE MOST COMMONLY OVERLOOKED WEDDING DETAILS

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT YOU HAD IT ALL FIGURED OUT...

SORRY!

Yes, there are a zillion things to plan and organize when it comes to your wedding. So the odds are at least a few things will fall through the cracks. Even for the Type As of the world, making sure nothing is overlooked is near impossible.

Here are five things that brides and grooms OFTEN forget. Write them down, take a screenshot, whatever. Just make sure you add these to your To-Do List!


1 ) A CAKE SERVING SET
Ahhhh…the sweet and charming tradition of cutting the cake. The perfect photo op. It represents the first activity done as a couple, although, get this – back in the day, the bride cut the cake alone to symbolize the loss of her virginity. Weird, huh Anywho - you don’t want to be slicing your cake with a butter knife, so don’t forget to bring a cute set! 

Like these...

2 ) YOUR TECH CHARGERS
You can bet your bottom dollar that your phone will be a hotline for well-wishers. And believe it or not, many couples forget to ring a charger when they’re leaving home. If you’re planning to snap some getting-ready selfies or play a few of your favourite songs during cocktail hour, you better put this one on your packing list!


3 ) YOUR COME-FROM-AWAY GUESTS
Some of your nearest and dearest may be travelling a long way to get to your biggest celebration. Say welcome, glad you’re here and give a glimpse into the festivities to come with a bag full of local goodies. Throw in a list of your favourite hotspots or watering holes and an itinerary for your planned events, and Voila! Your guest are tickled pink!


4 ) FEEDING YOUR VENDORS {AND ASSISTANTS}
The last thing you want on your wedding day is a low-energy DJ or an exhausted photographer. Your vendors are going to be working an eight- to 12-hour day, so plan on feeding any wedding professionals who will be there with you at the reception such as your planner, photographer, DJ plus their assistants. Also you may want to talk to your caterers and the venue manager to designate a quiet spot for the vendors to eat during a break.


5 ) ALONE TIME
Your wedding day will fly by right before your eyes. Though it may last 12 or 15 hours and be absolutely incredible, you don’t want to look back and think: “I wish I had taken a time-out to be alone with my new bride.” (Or groom.) Make sure to work it into your itinerary for the day to appreciate just what it is all about – your commitment to each other.


Now that you're armed with these details not to be forgotten, go ahead and add them to that ever-growing list of To-Dos.

Hope it helps!


Best,
Nikki
