When going to the hairdresser, always wear a buttoned shirt to avoid messing up your hair otherwise you will have to take it off over your head.
Take all price tags/stickers off the underside of your shoes, especially if you are kneeling in the church & remember to wear them in a little.
Check with your Minister if he minds photographs being taken during the service.
Try to leave your seating plan until last as it will always change!
Don’t seat the older folks near the speakers, they don’t enjoy the loud music as much, so spare a thought to them.
When arranging seating for the Photographer, DJ & Videographer, it is a good idea to seat them at a smaller table together as they are getting up & down all the time & this can be disruptive to the other guests.
It is important to use name cards at the main table as there is always confusion about who sits where and it can be quite embarrassing with a room full of eyes on you.
It is a good idea to think about whom to include for your family photographs, as you don’t want to leave anyone out and this generally takes up a lot of time if unprepared!
The venue for your photographs needs to be carefully chosen. Remember you don’t want to travel too far as this takes up time & you want somewhere where the lighting conditions are good at the time you are going to be taking photographs.
Take something to drink i.e. a bottle of champagne & some glasses with you on your photo shoot. You will be thirsty after the church and this will relax you a little more! Besides, it looks good in the photographs!
Put somebody in charge of your wedding gifts, i.e. taking them to a safe place without being damaged!
Ensure that your MC meets the DJ, Videographer & Photographer so that if there are any problems they know who to go to.
Be sure that when you throw the bouquet & garter that you are on a stable chair & beware of low ceilings & ceiling fans
