So you’re in the middle of planning your dream wedding. It seems like there are millions of different things to figure out, from choosing between wedding venues and flower arrangements to the colors and asking your bridal party to join you for your big day. With so many things to think about, it can feel overwhelming to get the wedding plans just right and not to forget anything.
To make sure your wedding planning goes off without a hitch, here are some important details not to forget!
Figuring out when the sun will set
If you’re planning an afternoon wedding, make sure to figure out when the sun will set or else your pictures may be compromised. Once you figure out the time the sun will set, you’ll be able to plan your ceremony and pictures more thoroughly with your photographer.
Having a rain plan
We all hope for perfect weather for our wedding days, but if you’re having your reception outside it is crucial you plan for the worst — rain. Luckily, we have many unique wedding halls that will give you the exact ambiance you crave, no matter if you are inside or out. So considering that 40% of brides and grooms-to-be look for unusual venues that better reflect their personality, know that even if you have a rain plan in place, you’ll still get the perfect wedding.
Transportation for your bridal party
Chances are your bridal party will leave the hotel or the place you’re getting ready before the bride and groom, but earlier than the rest of the guests. Having a separate bus for them to get to the venue to figure out any last minute details will make the entire day less stressful.
Getting a photo wrangler
Chances are your photographer won’t know who is in your immediate family, so it is always a good idea to designate a member of your bridal party to find the important people for your pictures. They’ll be able to grab all the necessary family members and keep you right on track with timing.
Ask your vendors about the ability for overtime
You never know how long the party will go, so leave some wiggle room in your budget for overtime. While it can be easy for your wedding plans to go down to the exact minute, you may just be having too much fun to end the night early. Always check with your vendors to see if this option is available on an hour by hour basis.
All in all, creating wedding plans doesn’t have to be stressful. Just take it day by day and enjoy this beautiful yet somewhat frantic time in your life!
