"Planning a wedding is essentially a full-time job. There are so many details and so many people, vendors, and logistics that have to be managed, so it's not hard to believe that sometimes a detail here and there gets overlooked." The 50 Mistakes Brides Always Make Here, expert wedding planners break down the top things you forget when planning a wedding. With any luck, this list will save you from forgetting these details, too.
6. Arranging Event Lighting
Lighting really helps to set the mood and vibe at a wedding. "After all the decisions are made and hard work put into every little detail, lighting is the most important component to really ensure those elements look their very best," says Sullivan.
7. Provide Extra Seats at the Ceremony
"Take into consideration the fact that people do not naturally sit next to each other," Easton advises, "so you will always need roughly 20 more chairs than there are people."
8. Designate a Photo Wrangler
Along with a shot list, "designate a sister, brother, cousin, or aunt who can be the 'photo wrangler,'" suggests Easton. "The photographer is not going to know who your important family members are, so when he gets to the 'photo of the bride with aunts and uncles,' your photo wrangler can easily go grab these family members for you and you can stay on track with timing."
9. Establish a Wedding Website Before You Mail Save the Dates
"The site does not need to be fully finished, but you should have a URL that you can put on the cards, as well as a few basic pieces of information on the site, such as the the location and nearby hotels," says Wilson. "People are often so excited to get the save the dates out that they don't think about the fact that six to eight weeks before the wedding is pretty late for out-of-town guests to make travel plans."
10. Arrange for Transportation for the Newlyweds After the Reception
"Transportation is a must-have for the wedding day, but often times, brides forget that they need to arrange a ride from the reception to their next destination, be it their home, a hotel, or even the airport. It's rare that the couple is driving themselves on the wedding day so don't be left calling an Uber in your formalwear because you haven't arranged a car to get you where you need to go," says Sullivan.
