Tips that will Make Your Wedding Reception Run Smoothly
Hiccups are cute in little babies, but not on your wedding day. Use these wedding tips to make sure the only hiccups at your reception are from the champagne.
Select the best backdrop for your big day.
Choosing your venue is not a decision that should be made lightly. Use this checklist to choose the right wedding venue that fits your style, has all the necessary rooms for your big day, and creates a unique atmosphere that you can build on.
Choose the premiere vendors.
The best vendors are the best because they have a proven track record of providing superior service. On the other hand, many a bride and groom have been left dissatisfied by less-than-stellar vendors. During wedding planning, take steps to ensure that you select the right vendors that can turn your vision into a reality. (To help you choose the best caterer, we’ve put together tips that’ll leave you and your guests more than satisfied.)
Make one last call to your vendors.
If you don’t want to have to take care of last minute details on your big day, make one last phone call to your venue and vendors. Contact your caterer, entertainers, and any other vendors to make sure that everything is confirmed and ready for your wedding.
Delegate as needed.
Not every detail of your wedding day has to fall on your shoulders. Delegate any small tasks to trusted friends and family, or hire a wedding planner so you can concentrate on enjoying your big day.
Organization is the key to a smooth-running wedding day. Get as much done in advance as you can because the final days before your wedding day are hectic. Make payments that are due or put funds in envelopes. Break in your shoes. Send out a final schedule of events to your attendants.
Pack a kit for emergencies.
A stain on your dress. A splitting headache. A rip in someone’s formal attire. Pouring rain. Emergencies can come up at any time—even on your wedding day. Pack a kit with stain remover, medications, thread, needle, an umbrella, and any other necessities that could come in handy on your special (and smooth!) day.
We’ve been part of a lot of wedding days, and the commonality is that they always seem to go really quickly. Enjoy yourself on your smooth-running wedding day; you’ll have many happy memories when it’s done.
