Scarlets’ Top 10 Wedding Details Not to Forget!
You’ve made your list and checked it twice, but somehow you forgot something! We’ve compiled a list of the top 10 details NOT to forget on your wedding day based on our experiences at the estate.
1. Groomsmen socks
Shouldn’t the guys have their own socks? Well they probably do, but white socks might not exactly match the look you were going for. Buying a pack of matching socks for all the groomsmen can be a great gift and helpful for those who forget their dress socks. If you want your guys to wear fun socks, then that can also be a great gift so everyone is included in the look.
2. Comfortable shoes
It’s a must to have backup shoes for the dance floor if you plan on wearing heels for your ceremony. It is also a cute idea to have flip flops provided for the bridesmaids or even guests.
You probably have your whole day planned from start to finish, but did you leave time for yourself to eat lunch? Most brides completely forget about this and don’t bring any food. Make sure to bring a light snack and eat it before you get your makeup done!
4. An “Emergency” Kit for the girls
This is a great thing to place in the bathroom of your venue, or wherever you get ready, for all the girls in the bridal party to use. Your emergency kit should consist of the essentials – Things like tampons, deodorant, hairspray, Tide To Go, and maybe even a sewing kit.
This can be a lifesaver if something goes wrong or if your bridesmaids are forgetful too. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
Of all things to forget, brides often forget their itinerary. Make sure you have this with you before leaving for your venue. Give a copy to your maid of honor so she can tell you and your wedding party where they should be and when. You will need your itinerary until your photographer takes over or the ceremony starts. This will cut down on questions and confusion so you can focus on getting married!
6. Vendor Payments and Tips
Put all payments and tips to your vendors in envelopes – Get cash or checks and have them marked so you know who they go to and can quickly grab them before they leave. Or you can have a designated person to handle the envelopes.
On your wedding day you will be overwhelmed with a flood of emotions, but the one thing you don’t want to be overwhelmed with is questions. And believe us, there will be questions. Who else would people want to ask other than the bride? Assign someone who can be there to answer and save you from the stress. This might be the wedding planner, your maid of honor, or anyone really. Just make sure it isn’t you!
If you are leaving for your honeymoon the day after your wedding, make sure you have your luggage packed and ready to go. While this might be common, we don’t necessarily recommend it.
You’ll most likely be out late celebrating your marriage and nothing is worse than traveling while tired or hungover. Take the next day to relax, open gifts, and reminisce on your awesome wedding. Then take off on your adventure on Monday.
9. Write a note to your spouse
This is a sweet gesture that your spouse will totally love. No matter how long you’ve been together and how sure you are, everyone is nervous on the day of their wedding. Writing a simple note can be just the thing they need to calm their nerves.
10. It’s about love!
At the end of the day it’s about being married. It’s not about if everything went perfectly because you have to know it’s not going to be perfect. The point is to be married and to be happy. Don’t forget to take it all in with your spouse because it goes so fast!
