Easily Forgotten Details on Your Wedding Day
I’m not gonna lie, planning a wedding is A LOT. I’ve even had three years of wedding planning experience and I still have to review a checklist to make sure I have covered every little detail! There are, however, some popular details I notice tend to slip some brides’ minds. Here are some forgotten items to keep in mind while planning your big day!
Marriage license: The number one thing I see couples forget on their wedding day is their marriage license. This is something you MUST remember so your officiant can sign it and take care of it immediately after the ceremony. You don't want to be in the middle of pictures and have to send a bridesmaid back to your house to pick it up because that is just not fun for anyone!
Transportation: Something so many people don't even think about is your transportation on the wedding day. Luckily with things like Uber and Lyft, this is an easy last-minute fix. However, it's still best to have planned beforehand how you will be getting to and from the venue. You don't want to do your grand exit and realize… there is no vehicle for you to drive off in!
Eyelash glue: I know, this one sounds silly. But did you know eyelash glue is water-soluble!? Which means you have one emotional moment and that little sucker is falling right off. I recommend having a bridesmaid in charge of a “touch-up bag” that includes things like lipstick, hair spray, and EYELASH GLUE!
EAT!: On your wedding day, there is so much happening. It's not hard to let something very important slip your mind, but you still need to eat! You'll want to make sure you eat breakfast in the morning, have someone designated to bring food to your getting-ready location, and carve out time during the reception to eat dinner. With the hype and excitement of your wedding day, it will be so easy to forget to feed yourself but believe me, you do not want to pass out on the altar. It's just not a cute look for anyone.
A pack-up crew: It’s nice to think that after the wedding some family and friends will so graciously stay to help pack up your belongings, but that doesn't always happen. If you do not specifically ask people to stay and help after the wedding, then chances are they won’t. There will probably be a handful of items that need to be packed after the wedding such as pictures, decor, leftover alcohol, your dress, cake, gifts, etc., and you want to know who is in charge of collecting all of those items so you know where to find them after the wedding!
We hope this helps you be more prepared for your wedding day! What are some other easily-forgotten details that you've noticed?
