Couple Heading for Their HoneymoonPutting together a wedding requires a lot of effort. There are many moving pieces you need to stay mindful of throughout the process, and it isn’t always easy to remember the smaller details of your big day. The last thing you want is to realize you forgot a vital component as you’re walking down the aisle. Luckily, you have time to take action and reassure yourself before you tie the knot. Consider these last-minute wedding details and give yourself the peace of mind you need.

Vendors and Tips

In a perfect world, you would be able to contact your vendors once and feel confident that everything else will work itself out. Unfortunately, this is often far from the case. Many couples feel as if they need to check in with their vendors many times throughout the planning process to ensure all parties are on the same page. While you definitely shouldn't aim to become the type of person who pesters vendors consistently without a clear purpose, you at least have to touch base with them once between initially contracting with them and your wedding.

It is also wise to plan ahead in regard to how you go about tipping your vendors. It can be annoying to start digging through your purse for cash while trying to enjoy the end of your reception. Before your wedding date arrives, put cash in envelopes and clearly label each one so you know who to hand the slips off to as the night comes to a close. Bring a little extra cash with you in the event you forgot a vendor or some of the serving staff went above and beyond for your guests.

Honeymoon Headaches

The way couples go about their honeymoons has changed significantly over the years. Still, you may have opted for the traditional route of leaving for your first excursion as a married unit soon after your reception has ended. If this is the case, you definitely have to get all of the tasks associated with your honeymoon completed before your actual wedding begins. A failure to do this will find you rushing home to pack and get to the airport when you should be basking in the glow of this important life milestone.

Pack and store all of your luggage in a place where it can be easily accessed. In some cases, this might require that you bring your suitcases to the reception venue in advance and speak with management about storing it someplace safe. Since you will be busy with a million little tasks during the event, give any tickets and passports to a trustworthy member of your family. Finally, have your ride to the airport or place of departure scheduled far in advance. Waiting around for an Uber or Lyft you contacted at the last possible second only adds to your stress.

Photo Ideas

Before the big day arrives, speak with your photographer and videographer about the shots you absolutely would like taken. This may require a little prep work on your end. To make it easy on yourself, tell your photographer you would like to have a portion of time during the event dedicated to greeting each table and getting a group photo. Also, mention which family members and friends your photo team should be focusing on. While your friends from work might be lively during the event, you’d probably prefer photos of your siblings in the long run.

To limit the amount of stress you experience leading up to your wedding, think about last-minute wedding details you may have overlooked. This extra step might be all it takes to keep your event running the way you’d like.
