A wedding plan is the one-stop list that controls your big day; it’s where you’ll write out all your hopes and dreams for a wedding you’ll never forget, and it makes the entire process a lot more actionable! However, there might be a few things missing from your wedding plan. Maybe in all the excitement you’ve forgotten to jot them down and factor them in, but don’t worry, it’s not too late to make some changes.
Ordering Plenty of Meals
Catering for your wedding is one of the biggest parts of planning the day itself. You need to have tasty food on hand for the guests to dig into, and you need to make sure you’re aware of any allergies or intolerances. Check, you’ve done all that!
However, have you thought about the volume of meals you’ve ordered? Do a double-check right now; you’re going to need a meal for each person, of course, but it’s also good practice to order a couple of extra. Who knows if someone will drop their plate, or turn their nose up at their original option?
Having Some Budget Wiggle Room
The budget will never quite cover everything you’ll end up needing for the big day, which is why it’s important to have some wiggle room in your buffer. You need a bit more money on the side to tide you over, just in case, so do some checks now to see how to make that happen.
Indeed, this simple miscalculation is why so many people like to work with a wedding planner – if someone has their eye on the budget at all times, and has the experience to make wiggle room, very little can go wrong on your wedding day!
Someone to Take the Pictures!
Before we go any further, it’s important to double check your plan and see if you’ve got a photographer on the list somewhere. Sure, you may have a friend ready or your brother in law on hand to snap some shots of your big day, but it’s a good idea to also consider a professional Wedding Photographer. This way you can be sure that your wedding album will look absolutely amazing, and you won’t regret forking out just a bit more money for that glossy touch.
A Proper Seating Plan
Finally, make sure you’ve got enough seats for everyone, and that people are sat where they need to be. Double check that you’ve got no feuding family members next to each other, and that people are sat with a good mix of those they know and those they don’t. You want them all to get friendly with each other, after all, and a carefully allocated seating plan is the best way to get the ball rolling.
Your wedding plan is nearly good to go – just make sure you’ve double checked it, and haven’t forgotten anything on the list. Now’s your chance to make the big day truly perfect for you and your partner.
