20 Forgotten Wedding Details

20 Forgotten Wedding Details


Do you feel like you forget something before the BIG DAY? Planning a wedding can be overwhelming and stressful at times, so with that, it’s easy to forget the little things outside of what’s being worn, where the ceremony & reception are, and where the honeymoon is! Check out our list of 20 Forgotten Wedding Details so you can plan your big day and not forget anything!

  1. Timeline of Events – Give copies to all vendors, coordinators, bridal party, & parents.
  2. Vendor Contact Information – Give copies to the coordinator, trustworthy family members, & the bridal party.
  3. Pre-Wedding Meals – With all the hustle and bustle, eating is likely one of the last things on your mind. Arrange for a friend or family member to bring food for the entire bridal party. Do NOT skip meals!
  4. Overnight Bag – Be sure to pack the essentials: toothbrush, hairbrush, fun outfit 😉, PJs, next-day outfit, make-up remover, chargers, & medicine.
  5. Cash & IDs – You never know where the wedding night might take you! Better safe than sorry.
  6. Emergency Kit – Items such as a stain stick, double-sided tape, a sewing kit, band-aids, tissues, floss, bobby pins, & perfume can come in handy.
  7. Marriage License – This is a must before you get married of course!
  8. Gift Plan – Have a plan for who will be transporting the gifts to a safe location.
  9. Family Heirlooms
  10. ‘Getting Ready’ Clothes – Pictures are often taken of the bridal party, along with the bride & groom, while they are getting ready. Some prefer to wear coordinated outfits, such as robes, or some prefer to wear whatever is comfortable.
  11. Extra Shoes – Shoes break. Feet hurt. It happens!
  12. Extra Wedding Stationary – The photographer may want to take some special photos of the stationary for keepsakes.
  13. Speeches – Give copies to the coordinator, DJ, and a trusted friend. A digital copy would be beneficial also.
  14. Rain Gear – Just in case. The weather can sometimes be unpredictable!
  15. A Thank You Speech – Many couples forget to do this, but it shows your appreciation for all your guests and vendors! A written or printed-out card works perfectly fine!
  16. Bridal Party Transportation – Make sure the bridal party has a plan for transportation from where they are getting ready to the ceremony. Then, from the ceremony to the reception.
  17. Extra Seats at Ceremony – Strangers don’t naturally sit next to others. It is best to plan for about 20 extra seats.
  18. Order Vendor Meals – Be sure to include the bride and groom in the number of guests.
  19. Tip Envelopes – Tips are often forgotten by vendors. Having the tip envelopes in hand will help, as well as save time on the day of the event.
  20. ‘Block Out’ hotel rooms for out-of-town guests. They will appreciate it!

In the end, don’t sweat the small stuff. Our list of 20 easily forgotten wedding details will help out with that!
