WHAT NOT TO FORGET WHEN PLANNING A WEDDING

October 9, 2021

We know just how much planning goes into every single wedding day. No matter how organised you are as a person, there are often minor details that get overlooked when planning a wedding. That is why we have created this list of little details that should not be overlooked on your wedding day.

SIGNS & DIRECTIONS

After the ceremony, your guests are often left wondering where the bathroom is or ever where to go for the reception. Make sure your venue is well signposted and that someone is happy to direct the guests to the next location. If that is for canapé hour or family photos.

KEEP YOUR WEDDING VENDORS UP-TO-DATE

Open communication with all vendors is the key to success, a week prior to the wedding, make sure each vendor has a copy of your run sheet for the day and knows exactly where to go and when to arrive. Your photographer, caterer, MC, and wedding coordinator (if you have one) are the ones who need to be well informed of any changes to the schedule.

MAKE YOUR WET WEATHER PLAN

While the weather is not something you can control, it’s something that you can prepare for. Most weather apps can give a fairly accurate prediction within 10 days of your wedding day. Although the weather may predict clear weather, there is always the chance of an afternoon storm. Make sure you have a clear wet weather plan with your venue, so a quick decision can be made.

KEEP LIGHTING IN MIND

If you want beautiful, glowy sunset wedding images, the sun has to be out. Make sure that you know what time the sun sets and talk to your photographer about scheduling a quick session at this time. If a sunset session is what you want (which we always recommend for the best images) make sure it’s got a designated spot on the run sheet.

NO-PLAY LIST FOR YOUR DJ

There are some songs you just don’t want the DJ to play at your wedding. This may be due to the content or personal preference. Either way, make sure that you give your DJ or band a list of songs that you do NOT want them to play.
