The run up to your wedding day can be pretty hectic to say the least. Not only is there so much to plan and organise, there’s also the added pressure of making sure you look great and the worry that everyone remembers exactly what they’re supposed to be doing and at the right time. Here’s a reminder of some pre-wedding essentials you need to get organised in time for the big day, just in case you forget:
- Setting up your wedding gift list
Spending sometime setting up your wedding gift list is really important. Traditionally a gift list is to help you get set up for married life together so involves lots of essentials like cutlery, a toaster and kettle etc. But, as so many couples live together before marriage now things have changed a bit. Use your list to get beautiful things for your house to make it feel more homely and special as you start married life. Sites like Cox and Cox for some gorgeous interior inspiration.
- Check your passport is in date
Making sure that both your passports are in date in time for the honeymoon is vital and something that often gets forgotten in the run up to a wedding. The passport renewal system can take a while in busy periods but usually about 3 weeks and an emergency run to the passport offices located in Liverpool, London, Durham or Glasgow.
- Put together the table favours
Little things like table favours can easily be forgotten. They give you chance to thank your guests for coming to your wedding and allow you to add a little personal touch to the day. By thinking about these in advance you’ll be able to put together some cute little favours which symbolise your relationship and put a smile on your guests’ faces.
- The cake
Organising the cake well in advance is super important to make sure you get exactly what you want and the cake designer you desire. With specialists being booked up well in advance it’s important to organise this early on then it’s one thing off the list that can’t get forgotten about at the last minute. Try and think about what you want for your cake rather than pleasing your guests and always plan for the amount of people you have coming.
There’s so much to organise when planning a wedding that it can all get really stressful. By considering these 4 essentials far in advance you’ll hopefully not forget anything and have a wonderful wedding day.
