There are a million and one things to consider when it comes to your wedding! Although it’s difficult to imagine that there’s a detail you haven’t thought of, trust us when we say that there are certain to-dos that never make it to the top of the list.
Fortunately, Hacienda Sarria event planner Claudia Francescutti has compiled a list of the five most forgotten items, to ensure that your wedding day runs smoothly.
Avoid last minute printing! The last thing you should be concerned about on your wedding day is printing your vows or speech. Avoid this stressor by delegating the task to a member of your bridal party. Also, it’s a good idea to send a copy to your planner to keep on hand.
Wardrobe malfunctions happen to the best of us, prepare yourself by having double-sided tape handy. Go a step further by leaving a roll of double-sided tape in the Bridal Suite so the wedding party can keep garments secure.
Band-Aids are also essential to have on your wedding day. You never know when a blister may appear and you definitely don’t want to be kept from the dance floor.
Ah, wouldn’t it be nice if we could walk around in four-inch heels all night and never have sore feet? Unfortunately that’s not a reality, which is why Claudia recommends bringing a pair of flats. Swap your shoes and hit the dance floor harder than ever to continue celebrating with your partner and guests!
A lot of brides and grooms have said that they were so nervous that they forgot to brush their teeth on their wedding day. Yikes! That’s why Claudia recommends keeping mints handy.
Skip the minty gum! Do you really want to get caught chewing gum in your wedding video? Consider buying in bulk so you can hand them out to your wedding party.
Even if you did get a chance to brush your teeth, it’s good to keep mints handy because you’re going to be hugging and talking to a lot of guests.
Money for Tips
Gratuities are always appreciated for a job well done, not to mention that they are a kind and thoughtful gesture! To avoid showing up to your wedding without cash, we advise visiting the bank a day or two in advance.
Something to consider: Check your contracts! Many gratuities are built into the price for major items. Read carefully to dodge double tipping.
