Don’t Forget These Important Things When Wedding Planning!
There are so many details, big and small that go into planning a wedding. From the big things like the venue, dress and cake to the smaller things like wedding favors and a ring cushion, it’s safe to say that there are few events which require quite so much planning and organization. So with everything being sorted, calls to vendors being made and budgets to plan, make sure you don’t forget any of these crucial things.
Chances are you’ll have spent plenty of time deciding on your wedding invitations. The colors, the font, the overall look of them. But have you given much thought to the rest of your stationery? You could buy personalized save the date cards, RSVP cards, place holders and thank you cards for after the big event.
As well as the cost of buying your wedding stationery, you also need to factor in the cost of posting it all too. You could save costs by hand delivering what you can, and maybe include a lot of information on a wedding website rather than send it through the post. But either way, there are always going to be some pieces that are going to need posting so don’t forget to work the cost of this into your budget.
Directions To The Wedding
This could be included as part of your wedding stationery, or on your wedding website if you have chosen to create one. The last thing you want is people showing up late or even missing the wedding entirely because they don’t know the way. This is even more important if the venue is a little trickier to find or if you have guests coming from out of town who aren’t familiar with the area. Include clear instructions (including things like which car park or entrances to use if necessary) with both a map and written instructions if needed. This will make everything run much more smoothly for your guests, and is a step they are sure to appreciate!
Your Guests Food Preferences or Allergies
When you are deciding on your wedding food, you’ll need to find out if anyone has any special dietary requirements. Whether it’s vegetarian, vegan, food allergies or religious reasons, making sure everyone is properly catered for is essential. When your guests have taken time out and in many cases spent a lot of money (new outfits, travel, hotel stays) to celebrate your wedding you at least want to make sure they’re properly fed on the big day.
An ‘Emergency Kit’
An emergency kit is a useful addition to have on the day, including things like deodorant, talcum powder, safety pins and everything else you think you or your bridesmaids might need. There are plenty of ideas online to show you the kinds of things that may be useful, so have them packed in an easy to access bag while you’re getting ready!
