6 Wedding Details That You Might Have Forgotten

6 Wedding Details That You Might Have Forgotten

You have been spending several months planning your wedding, doing everything you can to ensure it is the perfect day for you and the love of your life. In the midst of all the organizing, you may have left out some small, yet important details. Here are six of the most commonly forgotten wedding details that shouldn’t be overlooked.

1. Garment Hangers

Many couples do not think about garment hangers for their big day. While you can use normal clothing hangers, a pretty and customized garment hanger can add the sweetest touch as you get ready to walk down the aisle.

Photographers usually take photos of the wedding dress before the bride gets ready and a beautiful hanger will complement the dress beautifully. At Tayne and Ashley we create custom hangers with beautiful designs, personalized names, and dates. You can keep track of which garments belong to who and they make a great keepsake for your groomsmen or bridesmaids.

2. Directions & Signage

In the spirit of making your day run smoothly and providing your guests with all of the information they need to get to the venue, directions and signage are a critical but often overlooked element of your wedding day! Use custom signs to indicate important directional and event related information. In addition to informative signs, you can use signage to enhance and personalize your décor.

3. The Guest Book

A guest book is the perfect way to capture and remember who you shared your special day with. Don’t forget to find the perfect guest book for your friends and family to sign. If you are looking for a more creative way to document who was there, consider getting a polaroid camera where guests can take a photo for you or ask them to include some marriage advice or a memory with the bride and groom.

4. Snacks and Refreshments

It is likely that you have planned all the food and refreshments you need during your wedding, but have you thought about snacks for before? The last thing you want is for you and the wedding party to get hangry while preparing to walk down the aisle! Make sure you have a basket of quality snacks and drinks located wherever you are getting ready.

5. Payments & Tips

Throughout your wedding day, you will need to pay several of the services you hired such as the caterer or the DJ. Prior to the wedding, determine how much you need to pay everyone, including the tip, and divide the payments into labelled envelopes. Keep these envelopes in a safe place or assign someone reliable the task of settling outstanding payments throughout the night. Put some extra cash in an envelope in case you would like to tip someone you didn’t expect.

6. Thank You Notes

A customized thank you note drawn in beautiful calligraphy is a wonderful way to thank friends, siblings, parents and grandparents for their support today, and the moments in your life that have built up to this day. Your parents and grandparents will keep this note for years to come, so it’s a good idea to work with a professional calligrapher to ensure the note is as beautiful as the sentiment contained within.

While handling these six wedding details will put a little bit more on your plate before the big day, we guarantee it will be worth it. With all the details taken care of you can focus on enjoying your wedding day with the people you love most.
