The wedding day is supposed to be the most memorable one for a couple, but it can easily turn into a harrowing and stressful experience. Bombarded with a long list of things to attend to, together with the hawk-like attention paid to the couple and the wedding ceremony by the guests, it is easy for both the bride and the groom, and their wedding organizer, to succumb to the pressure.
It is thus very important to attend to the simple things that could mean a whole lot of difference to a successful and meaningful wedding.
Do not underestimate the power of a sewing kit.
Wedding traditions dictate that it is bad luck for a bride to try on her dress for her wedding. While a few non-believers shrug this off as just “one of those things”, there are a good number of women who are loyal to tradition. This being the case, the problem of an ill-fitted wedding gown can easily come into the picture. Often, the bride will force herself into her dream gown. This leads to rips that could easily reap tears. The solution comes in a tiny box called a sewing kit. Make sure that it is complete, and that everything is easy to find. More importantly, get ready with threads that come in colors similar to that of the dresses of the bride and her entourage.
Invite talented people both to the ceremony and the wedding reception.
You may have hired the best wedding singer and the best band that could provide the most fantastic entertainment. But if they do not come, you are doomed. They might come in late, too, especially if your wedding is to be held early in the morning, and they just had a gig the night before. The solution comes in the form of talented guests. Make a run through of your list, and identify guests who are good in certain skills such as hosting and singing. Inform them beforehand, that they might be called to render a number. That way, they could come prepared, and you would have your back-up performers at your beck and call.
Write everything down, or have someone write things down for you.
You could be the most organized person in the world, but come the day of your wedding, where all the bustling activity and the flurry of people are sure to distract you, it is easy to forget the little things that matter. For instance, you might forget half of the giveaways that were quietly tucked in the hotel closet. Or, you might forget the matches for the candle-lighting ceremony. These are the things that seem very minute, but when forgotten, are the most noticeable. The solution is to write things down in a single notebook. Avoid writing in scraps of paper, because you can easily lose those as well. Better yet, ask someone to assist you by taking notes for you. This saves you your precious time.
Have a stand by driver and a vehicle all the time.
You might have forgotten things that could not be remedied nor replaced. For instance, if you forget your wedding veil, there is no other solution than to get it back. Rather than fretting over who to send back, have a driver and a vehicle on stand by. That way, it is easy for you to solve these little things that bug you on your wedding day.
