Here are a few days of wedding tips you need to ensure your wedding day bliss! You can find a ton of advice for weddings online, from family and friends, and past brides. However, most couples don't plan in advance for potential wedding problems which mean no plans when they present themselves. It's ok to ask for help with wedding planning, which is why we always recommend hiring a day-of wedding coordinator to help with transitioning wedding hiccups into wedding success.
First, create a task list which is also going to include sub-tasks, so you want to think about every single thing that needs to be done the day of your wedding from start to finish. In those subtasks, you want to clearly define every single detail to make sure that everything is exactly how you envisioned it.
Second, you want to take that task list and your sub-tasks and delegate it. This is probably the most important way to make sure that you're not stressed out on your wedding day, delegate to your friends and family, but also your wedding party. That's the main reason why you have bridesmaids and groomsmen is to help you with anything that you might need the day of.
Third, you want to make sure that you have a timeline. Of course, you're going to want to know what's going to happen throughout the day during the actual wedding, but a lot of people forget about what happens before the wedding starts and that's the most important part of staying on time. If you run behind on hair and makeup or photography, the ceremony might not start on time. You'll be super stressed and it'll seem like everything's in disarray.
You want to make sure that you have a timeline starting at the beginning of the day and you also want to include on the agenda where everyone that's involved in your wedding is going to be. So the timeline shouldn't just include when hair and makeup start for the bride, but it should also have things like the arrival time of the flower girl and ring bearer, the arrival time of the father of the bride, and the mother of the groom. That way everybody's informed about where they need to be and you won't get 50 phone calls on the morning of the wedding. Watch our video for a quick recap and easy ways to ensure your wedding day's success!
