The wedding is approaching, by now almost everything should be ready, yet things still to be done seem to never end. Even on the day of the wedding, one has the impression of having forgotten something important. Hoping that it is just a feeling, due to stress and anxiety, and that you have not really forgotten something important and fundamental (like inviting someone who could really take it badly!).
There are actually some things that you will necessarily need to remember. the same day of the wedding. We have compiled a list for you with 10 things not to forget for the wedding. It would be useful to create in advance a sort of agenda of things to do and not to forget, a “to-do list” of the wedding, so as to arrive prepared.
But do not panic, many will surely be familiar to you and some of the things you will have to remember to bring with you, you can also prepare them a little in advance, perhaps putting them all together in a comfortable bag to be entrusted to bridesmaids or parents.
1. BOUQUET AND FAITHS
It doesn’t just happen in movies, it actually happens sometimes! Thing? To forget about the faiths! To bring them, of course, because if you have forgotten even to buy them … well, the situation gets a little more complicated. Remember, therefore, to bring them with you, better if you have already placed them in their place on the ring holder, or leave the task to your wedding witnesses (often also called “ring buddies”, precisely because they will be responsible for your wedding rings. ), as long as they give you reliability. A phone call or a text message to remind him will not hurt.
For brides: before leaving the house, don’t forget your bouquet on the table! You will surely have taken and placed the bouquet a million times to take photos with your close family members before going to the church or to the town hall. Keep it close to the door so it will be harder for you to forget it.
2. THOUGHTS FOR BRIDESMAIDS AND GROOMSMEN
You have chosen the special gift to give to your witnesses to emphasize the importance of their role and how much you care for them. But you haven’t really thought about the bridesmaids and their companions! A cuddle for your best friends who have supported and endured you all the time of the preparations and who are by your side on the most beautiful day. Even a cute personalized coursage is enough to fill the bridesmaid’s eyes with happiness. And let’s not forget the groomsmen, the friends of the groom.
They too have an important role: they help the groom during the preparations and it is they who will animate the party more than all the other guests, inviting them to the toast in honor of the bride and groom. A tie that is the same for everyone will give a special touch to the ceremony!
3. EMERGENCY KIT
Preparing an emergency kit a few days before the wedding can be really useful. A relaxing herbal tea, some candies for a drop in sugar, handkerchiefs for tears of emotion, scissors to free the wedding rings from the ribbon, needle, and thread, much more so as not to be caught unprepared for the unexpected.
4. THE OFFICIAL PHOTOS
Don’t forget to make a precise list of photos to give to the photographer in charge of capturing the best moments of the reception. The reportage fashion is fine, but finding yourself without the usual photo with mom and dad could arouse some regret.
5. INDICATIONS FOR CATERING
Did you recall all your guests? Remember to indicate to the catering that will take care of the menu if there are vegetarians or if any guests have allergies to any food. The menu always attracts the attention of the guests and is one of the things they will remember the most, so you don’t want to ruin the party for one of them by forgetting about their food needs.
6. UMBRELLAS AND HEELS
Are you getting married in the middle of summer? Have you thought about the possibility that there could be a summer downpour? You must have thought of a plan B. Especially if you have decided NOT to rely on a wedding planner you will have to keep this in mind and do not forget to equip yourself with umbrellas and heel protectors for the ladies. The wonderful garden of the location you have chosen, after the rain, may not be very comfortable and the sinking heels usually put the ladies in a bad mood.
7. MONEY AND DOCUMENTS
One of the 10 things not to forget about the wedding is money! They will be used for emergencies, but also for tips or to pay any suppliers immediately after the wedding (band, restaurant, hotel, and so on). Limit the amount of cash and take your ATM and maybe even your checkbook with you.
Not even on the day of your wedding should you forget to bring your documents with you. Identity card, driving license, and passport, you will need to enter the hotel for your first night, to drive the car the same day (if you have not provided a driver) or the day after, and even to leave for the trip wedding. Carrying everything with you will avoid unnecessary runs home the next day, especially if you have an early flight.
8. UNWANTED GUESTS
Everything would be perfect except for mosquitoes & CO who rushed to ruin your party by the pool or in the park of the splendid location rented for the occasion. Make sure the bodybuilder has arranged citronella candles and that guests have post-puncture sticks and wipes available.
9. AFTER THE PARTY
Tableau, menu, mass booklet, table sign, it would be nice after some time to have these small objects back in your hands to relive the emotion of that day. If you have decided NOT to entrust the direction of your most beautiful day to a wedding coordinator, make sure that someone does it for you!
10. TO BE KIND
Taken by anxiety and stress, we often forget that all the people around us are probably making a big sacrifice, both because it is not always so pleasant to attend a wedding, and because they have had to apply for work permits or hire a babysitter just to be there with you. Remember, therefore, to always be kind to everyone, to smile and thank you, because, although you are the protagonists, all your guests will make the day even more special, with their affection and their presence.
