1. REMEMBER TO GET YOUR MARRIAGE LICENSE
Without the license, you can’t get married. And your officiant can’t provide it for you, so you and your spouse are going to have to hop on over to city hall to apply to get married. This should take place approximately a week before your wedding.
Your wedding day will be busy but don’t forget to take some time to eat something! When you’re getting ready with your bridesmaids or groomsmen, make sure that there are finger foods and refreshments to snack on. No sense in making a huge mess while getting ready, but there’s no sense in allowing your stomach to go empty, especially since bridal parties start getting ready in the late morning or early afternoon.
3. HAVE PAYMENT AND TIP SORTED OUT BEFORE THE BIG DAY
This means having paid the necessary deposits still need to fulfill or completing final payments if that’s within your power. Additionally, calculate tip and put the payment in separate envelopes that are labeled with the vendor’s name. That way, when your wedding is wrapping up, you can thank your vendor in person and give them tip without having to stress out about dealing with them after the fact.
4. PREPARE GIFTS FOR THE WEDDING PARTY
Your party of friends have been with you through the wedding-planning process thick and thin. Express your thanks by preparing gifts for them! A small token of your appreciation will go a long way and your bridesmaids and groomsmen will love the thought you put into the gifts. Popular gifts for the ladies usually consist of beauty products or jewelry, and for the guys? Fancy cigars and razors.
5. PREPARE YOUR EMERGENCY DAY KIT
The bridal survival/emergency kit will have essentially all the little things that you need to fix things up, including Band-aids, wine-spot remover, chapstick, breath mints, and sewing needles and thread. While you might think to yourself that it’s really not necessary to prepare all of these things, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Otherwise, you might be mourning the loss of your beautiful vintage veil because you’ve accidentally torn it.
Taking pictures is hard work for both the photographer AND the bridal party. If the photographer has to spend extra time coming up with ideas and guiding you and your fiancee into poses that you could have figured out and practiced beforehand, it takes away time from taking more photos. Not a good deal.
Brainstorm a couple of ideas for what sort of poses and shots you want your photographer to get and relay that information to your photographer. That way, the photographer will be able to approach the venue with an idea of where and how to get the best shots while still getting what you want out of the bargain.
