Weddings are fun mixed with traditions and everything in between, but mostly, a whirlwind. With various functions over a period of three-four days, there is so much to do and so little time. The Bride and Groom may skip little things that matter in this process.
Imagine having your hairstyle, which took hours to look perfect, come undone. Not a pretty sight but having back up supplies help as they will always have your back, be it hairpins or band aids.
- RAIN CHECK?
An outdoor wedding is a dream and while Brides and Grooms may bank on the day to be sunny, the weather is volatile. It is advisable to prepare for such situations. Check the weather history of the venue and for your wedding day.
- GETTING YOUR GUESTS TO THE VENUE
Make sure to arrange proper transportation to and from the venue for your out of town guests. It is advised to have a ‘transport incharge’, a cousin or friend, who knows the roads well and can navigate the way for your guests. Afterall, you don’t want them to get lost!
- YOUR ‘PHOTO-WRANGLER’
Brides and grooms often forget to get captured with their loved ones. The one way to make sure that never happens, appoint a ‘photo-wrangler’ who will call out your loved ones during a good old photo-sesh. Believe us, your photographer will thank you.
- ADEQUATE LIGHTING
Weddings need proper lighting solutions. If you’ve hired a band that generally doesn’t do weddings, make sure you tell the decorator that you need adequate lighting. ‘cause no one wants a dull wedding!
- A CHARGED PHONE
You don’t need your phone to die on you just when you need it. To avoid it, keep your phone fully charged and preferably charge it overnight.
Because every modern bride and groom need their instagram and snapchat story game on fleek!
- GUEST BOOK
Guest books are a wondrous and an in-trend way to keep a track of those who have graced your wedding with their presence as well as for them to leave you little pieces of advice and wishes.
- FEED YOUR VENDORS
There are many unsung heroes who help you create your magical day. They offer you their services and support, and while they are miracle workers, there is no harm in making sure that they’re also fed at your wedding party.
- THANK YOU NOTES
Those who stood by you deserve a heartfelt thank you note from the couple. Make sure you send them out within two months of the wedding. Spend 10-15 mins each day and write so that you don’t feel over whelmed.
- DON’T FORGET TO EAT
Weddings can be hectic and often brides and grooms forget to eat. It is essential that the bride and groom eat and keep themselves hydrated throughout the day. You don’t want a blackout in the middle of the wedding party!
- COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR PARTNER
Your partner is going through the same thing that you are and so, it is a great idea to talk to them. Don’t let the wedding get bigger than your marriage. Communicate and appreciate your partner, it’ll only help the love grow.
Keep a checklist and your bridesmaids or groomsmen close, the rest will fall in place.
Have a lovely wedding and a wonderful marriage!
