I hope part one was helpful start to getting your last minute wedding details organized or accomplished. Now, are you ready for the second part of the Last Minute Wedding Details post?
Last Minute Wedding Details Part 2
Programs – If you are handing out programs at your ceremony make sure to have them proofed, printed and ready to go. If you are not using printed programs and are opting for a chalkboard, wood, etc. program, make sure to have the layout of how you want it to look done.
Payments & Tips – Double check all your contracts of when final payments need to be made and get those scheduled in or paid. For tips I would suggest separating all tips in labelled envelopes and have someone who is responsible to hand those out through the reception.
Reception Entrance – If you are doing a reception entrance, who will be responsible for rounding up and organizing the parents and bridal party members?
Photos – Make sure everyone who you want included ( any extra family members or friends) in your formal wedding photos is told where and what time photos will be. And if someone is MIA from photos have someone is charge of tracking the down.
Welcome Bags – If you are going to be giving your guests a welcome bag in their hotel rooms, make sure to have them prepped and ready for transport to the hotels.
Getting Ready Food – Who is in charge of food while you and your groom are getting ready? You will need to eat, it’s going to be a long day! Have a breakfast bar or finger sandwiches available so your bridal party doesn’t starve
Toasts – Give your wedding party, MC and anyone else who may be speaking at your wedding a reminder to finish all speeches and toasts. People seem to procrastinate on writing speeches and toasts, haha!
Your Own Toasts – Now that you have reminded everyone else to work on theirs, it’s time for you to do the same.
Seating Chart – By now you should have all your RSVP’s in so, now is the time to create your seating chart or finalize it.
Emergency Kit – Create a wedding day emergency kit. Add band-aids, bobby pins, hairspray, safety pins, deodorant, tweezers, nail file, nail clippers, a small sewing kit, ect.
