There is no denying that getting married is one of the happiest points in your life. You’ve found someone you want to spend the rest of your life with, and you get to celebrate that fact on your wedding day! Unfortunately for some people, there are certain things they forget when they plan a wedding.
As you might expect, there is plenty to think about, organize, and act upon in the months and weeks leading up to that most romantic and memorable of days. So, to give you a helping hand with planning your wedding, here are a few things many people forget – but you won’t, because you’ve read about them in this article!
1. A contingency plan for bad weather
Everyone expects the sun to be shining for their big day. They also believe that their day will be perfect, and nobody will be complaining about the weather. The trouble is, weather forecasters often get things wrong! After all; they are only forecasting what might happen on a particular day!
With the above in mind, it’s vital you have a “Plan B” in case the heavens open on your big day. Do some research on what the weather is usually like at the time of year when you’re getting married. And make arrangements for alternative plans if it rains a lot!
2. Clothing for your bridesmaids
Are you planning to have people wearing formal attire on your big day? If so, you need to make sure that your guests know about the dress code. It’s also important for your bridesmaids to have the right clothes for the big day as well! Be sure to consider everything from bridesmaid robes through to dresses and even footwear!
3. Wedding day coordinator
Let’s face it; you’ve got plenty on your mind on the big day. The last thing you want to do is worry about what vendors are doing or even where they are, and how seating arrangements will be made at the reception. It makes sense to appoint someone close to you as your wedding day coordinator. They will ensure your big day goes off without a hitch, and are the point of contact for your suppliers.
Your guests will be making their own separate ways to the wedding venue. But who is going to transport you and your significant other? Sure, you could just drive yourselves to the church or whatever venue you’re getting married at, but why not arrive there in style? Be sure to organize transportation, and check how your close family and any offspring will be getting there too.
5. Food allergies
Here is a big can of worms just waiting to explode on your big day! It’s likely that some of your guests will have food allergies or intolerances. When you invite people to your wedding, you should have those guests inform you if they cannot eat certain foods or consume specific ingredients. After all; the last thing you want to do is make your guests ill. Your wedding day could end up being memorable for the wrong reasons!
