You want your wedding to be an event that will make your family and friends proud while still entertaining your wedding guests. To do so, you should incorporate some creative, out-of-the-box details that will make your wedding fun.
But sometimes in your effort to plan for every thing for your wedding, there are things you may overlook. Here are 11 wedding day details that every bride overlooks, from SHE Finds:
When planning your wedding, you will tackle the big items first, like band, photographer, and venue. But what about all those little details, the ones that get lost among the planning process? Such as planning the perfect entrance (and exit), picking out your chairs, or occupying your guests between the ceremony and reception. They are easily overlooked but incredibly important to your smooth-sailing, perfect-weather wedding day (here’s hoping!).
Here are 11 wedding day details every bride overlooks:
Chairs. We know, caring about chairs seems a little silly. But take it from a real life bride – they matter These will be in your photos and people will be sitting in them for part of the night (you don’t want squirming guests during the speeches!). Hint: Talk to your venue about what they supply and offer.
Occupy your guests. Many weddings have some lag time between the ceremony and the reception and it is very important you think about what they will do during this time. People have traveled far and wide for you, so don’t make them stand around, wondering what’s next. Hint: Set up games or a photo booth!
Designate a collector. Guests will be handing you things left and right (like wads of cash and checks in envelopes) and you do NOT want to lose the goods. So designate a ‘collector’ person. Someone like your coordinator, maid of honor, or even a parent or sibling will happily collect the items and put them in a safe place. Hint: If you set up a gift table, you will avoid all the hand offs.
The exit. How will you and the new Mr. exit? Streamers? Sparklers? Into a get away car? This is the last memory your guests will of you so plan something. Hint: If you are an all-night kind of couple, plan a great exit from the ceremony site!
