Use our guide so last minute wedding tasks don’t slip your mind
Planning your wedding can be quite hectic. Even the most detail-oriented bride-to-be can get caught up in all the excitement of the upcoming nuptials. There may still be some small (but crucial) things to cross off your checklist. Here are 4 last minute wedding tasks to remember for the final stretch.
- Inform Your Caterer of the Final Headcount
There is no room for error when it comes to the food. Giving your caterer the final numbers at least a week or two in advance will ensure they order the right amount of food and bill you correctly.
Don’t forget about them! Make sure you’ve received an RSVP from everyone (ask one of your bridesmaids to contact those who haven’t responded yet.) This is your chance to finalize their accommodation arrangements. Confirm their transport arrangements as well.
- Create and Fine-Tune a Day-of Schedule
Make sure you confirm delivery times. Most venues have very specific time frames allotted to the couples. Make sure everything will arrive and be set up in good time, with time to spare. You should also decide when the ceremony will start and by what time the reception should be wrapped up.
- Make Time for Yourself (and your fiancé) pre-weddding
In all the chaos that can come with wedding planning, many couples forget to spend time with each other. This is also a good time to pamper yourself at a spa. Make sure you get enough rest before the big day as well!
