So my wedding is two weeks today!! I'm now just making sure everything has been covered and thought of as last minute things keep cropping up. Does anyone have last minute suggestions that are sometimes forgotten to help me? Thanks x
Clothes to wear while getting ready and getting photos taken? Maybe separate cases for getting ready and for going into bridal suite? Xxx
I'm getting married 2 weeks yesterday. So this thread will help me too 😊😁x
If you have to pay anyone on the day, then take their money into separate envelopes and place in your bridal handbag.
Clothes for the day after.
If you're getting ready at the venue in the bridal suit, take rubbish bags with you, it's surprising how much rubbish you end up with.
Go through timings with hair and makeup ladies... it's surprising how long it all takes.
Take food with you, we were there over lunch time and so we room picnic food.
If you've got children getting ready there, make sure there's things to keep them busy.
Write lists... lots of lists!
I had them for everything and it stopped me getting flustered!
And leave a good 30 mins for getting your dress on.
It takes everyone so much longer than it does the ladies in the shop!
Repair kit..safety pins.needle,thread,painkillers,plasters,spot cream,bite cream,..not sure wot else but safety pins needed st my wedding due to someone's dress gettin ripped.x
If you're having a bag put some nail glue in. One of mine pinged off and I had to get my mate to get some super glue on the way to venue and give it to registrar so I could put it back on before ceremony haha . Also put some mascara in incase you have false lashes that come off.
If your h2b hasn't been involved much in the planning give him a to do list for the day.
Not so much a planning tip but more of a tip on the day. Try and get 5 mins with your husband after ceremony even if it's a short drive after as this will be the only time you get to see him other than meal and dance and there's so many people around at those points you don't actually get chance to talk.
Following- my wedding is in 18 days so this is helpful!!
You have the day wedding date as me! I'm following eeek not long now
I didn't think about researching how to pose for photos, walk down the aisle, hold my bouquet etc. My photographer asked me on the day if I'd researched it, oops!
Honestly the biggest thing brides forget is to relax, the last thing you want is your day is a permanent face of worry, or just being on edge.
The day before should really be pampering only and make sure to have some kalms or sleeping aids ready for a peaceful night x
I'm following 2 months from mine x
I gave one of my bridesmaids envelopes with cash in for taxi driver to take bridesmaids 2 venue, bar man , DJ , cleaner a whole month ahead as I was worried I would forget ! Def wrote job lists pages galore that I ticked off before leaving the house !! ..... Also remember putting together bag for going away several days beforehand as the clock seems to run away rather fast in last 3 days ......
Taxied... that's what I forgot
Definitely clothes for the next day! I took an overnight bag and thought I'd just wear the jeans I'd worn to get ready in, the morning after. I was getting ready at the venue and in the chaos afterwards, everything was just shoved into a bin bag and left at the venue to collect the next morning... All I'll say is that it's a good job I took some decent pyjamas ha. I'd recommend two separate bags if you're staying away; one for the day of, one for the next day!!
Following I get married in just under a month!
I'm 2 weeks yesterday! Scary/exciting
Genuinely I forgot to buy new underwear!
Very helpful as I'm getting married after 41 days and being honest I didn't thought about things mentioned there!
Relax and enjoy your day ....as it will be over before you know it .....and congratulations for your day x
Just double check everything make sure that everything is going smoothly then relax and enjoy ur wedding x
I'd forgotten to take my new underwear down my parents in the morning. I ended up wearing the bra and pants I'd put on that morning. Not ideal but no one knew!
Following! Mines next week
Mines also next week
Congratulations!! Try and enjoy the next few weeks as much as possible even though it can be overwhelming.
What helped me was writing a plan of the day (and the night before) literally minute and minute as it will help you remember what needs to happen or what you need to take to the venue. Then from that write yourself a tick list.
I also found labelling boxes and organising boxes into "decor" "gifts" "accessories" "table plan" etc helped. Good luck and enjoy it xx
Take a deep breath and enjoy every minute.
The one thing I didn't think about until my husband mentioned it, was having the contact numbers of everyone, to hand! From the hair and makeup lady, down to the cake maker. Just in case anything happens, I can contact them!
Also, if you're getting ready at a different place to your venue like I did, we hadn't preplanned how we were getting all of our over night stuff to the venue, without having to take it all in the wedding car! Fortunately my dad arrived in a taxi, so my bridesmaid's fiancee took the stuff in the taxi to the venue for us. I'd also recommend separate bags for last minute items that you want to keep with you. Eg. jewellery, makeup. And then a separate bag for everything that can go separately before you. These things that I hadn't thought of doing, did cause a little bit of extra stress for me.
