Checklists are vital for every important event in our lives. Writing tasks down is a learned habit that helps us to compartmentalize and organize so that we’re the most efficient we can be. Of course, the system isn’t always foolproof: we can unintentionally leave things off of our lists, and more often than not, there’s always something we forget.
For your big day, the key is to cut down the amount of items and to-dos we fail to remember – and the best way to achieve this is to have an expert wedding planner by your side. Celebrity event planner and Editors Circle member Mindy Weiss knows all too well that brides and grooms will likely make a few mistakes when it comes to planning. To help pairs in the midst of planning, she’s put together a list of seven details many couples seem to forget. Ladies and gentlemen, grab your pens and some paper and take note!
I highly recommend more natural or amber-toned lighting… you don’t want to look blue in all of your Instagram shots!
In the case of your wedding, surround sound works far better than traditional speakers do.
Especially if you want that custom Snapchat filter to work or have guests use your wedding hashtag in their Instagram stories.
Have a few phone chargers available for you and the wedding party, just in case!
You’ll be on your feet for hours taking photos, dancing, and interacting with your nearest and dearest, so have a pair of more comfortable flats to swap out for your high heels.
Don’t forget to arrange for vehicle placement, especially in nontraditional or off-site venues.
Assign someone to bring along a few copies of the invite suite for the photographer – you’ll be glad you have some great shots of these sentimental pieces, along with the other items for your wedding detail shots!
