Those who have ever planned a wedding or who are in the midst of doing so at this moment are very aware of the fact that there is so much more that goes into the preparations for the big day than finding the right dress and music. You will need to hire a number of qualified and well-reviewed wedding vendors as well as make sure that everyone in your wedding party is set and ready to go with the plans of the day.
As long as you take your time and don’t rush the process, not only can you successfully plan your perfect day, but you might also have some fun doing so. It is important, though, that you are as organized as possible and make sure that nothing major slips through the cracks.
In your efforts to plan a day that runs as smoothly as possible, here are four aspects of planning your wedding that might not have occurred to you just yet.
1. Vendor Meals
You will spend a significant amount of time looking over potential menus and sampling meals from catering companies. You know that you want to serve food that your fiancé and you enjoy, but it also needs to be something that will appeal to a large number of people. But what about the people you have working at your wedding?
Vendor meals can very easily be overlooked. However, the people that you have hired for your day will need food too. Make a list of all the vendors you have hired and how many people they will be sending. Have you hired multiple bartenders or a band? All of these people will need a full meal to get them through the day
2. How will you serve drinks?
Have you thought about how to keep your guests hydrated throughout the event? Many people turn to venues that have a built-in bar that allows their guests to buy their own drinks, and then don’t worry about it. However, if you have chosen a venue without a built-in bar or would like to offer an open bar, then this needs to be considered. Fret not, though, as eventbartenders.com can solve that problem for you by offering a mobile bar and various packages for all budgets. You could even choose to custom build your bar if you wanted.
3. Transportation for the Newlyweds
Is your wedding reception being held inside a grand hotel ballroom? If so, then all you and your new husband will need to do is be able to find the elevator to your room at the end of the night. However, if your reception is being held at a location that doesn’t have accommodations on-site, make sure that you and your fiancé have transportation arranged to take you to wherever you are staying. Neither of you will be wanting to drive anywhere after your reception.
4. Designate a Point Person
On your wedding day, you will have far too much on your mind to be dealing with the little disasters that will inevitably arise. Designate someone that you trust who can handle such things so that you can focus on simply enjoying yourself and getting married. Your maid-of-honor will likely be able to do the job just fine. You can also consider giving this job to someone who isn’t in your wedding party. Just make sure that all of your vendors and members of the wedding party have your point person’s number, so they aren’t calling you all day.
