With so many elements that go into planning a wedding, it’s no wonder that certain things are overlooked. With so much to think about it’s easy for certain aspects to go completely out of your head! If you’re in the process of planning your wedding, don’t forget these important things.
You’ll have probably given thought to your wedding invitations, but how about all of the other pieces of wedding stationery you might need? Personalised save the date cards, wedding and reception programs, even hen party invitations. You won’t need every type of wedding stationery that’s out there, but be sure to look into this in plenty of time. It gives you a chance to finalise your design and make sure everything goes out in plenty of time.
Wedding favours are a sweet way to show your guests that you have thought about them. You can buy them ready made, or save money by purchasing little favour boxes on sites like eBay and filling them with things of your choice. Sweets and other confectionery is a good choice, it could be anything from home baked cookies to fancy French macarons. If you’re doing them yourself, be sure to leave enough time to put everything together. If you have a lot of guests it could take a good few hours- maybe get your bridesmaids over to help!
Your Skincare Routine
Planning a wedding is stressful, and unfortunately, stress can take its toll on our skin. You want to look fresh faced and amazing on your wedding day, and thankfully the right products can help. Make sure you’re thoroughly removing makeup each night, are drinking plenty of water and eating lots of fresh foods. Choose products that are tailored to your skin type, whether it’s dry, oily or combination. And never try new products close to the day itself- stick with your tried and tested skincare and makeup. The last thing you need is an allergic reaction or clogged skin due to something that disagrees with you right before your wedding day!
Your wedding guest book, along with your wedding photos are the physical reminders you’ll have of your big day. So don’t let it be an afterthought. If you’re going for a traditional ‘book’ guestbook you can order this early on- or at the same time as your wedding stationery if you want it to match. If you’re planning on doing something a bit more creative like these, leave yourself enough time to put it all together.
Not essential, but a lovely way to thank your bridesmaids. Bridesmaids do a lot to ensure the smooth running of a wedding and are likely to be helping you to get everything set up. They accompany you to your dress fitting, they give you support and advice on the run up to the day and help you make any difficult decisions. So if it’s within your budget, a small gift as a token of your appreciation is a nice touch. It could be a piece of jewellery, a personalised hamper or you could buy them gorgeous shoes to wear with their bridesmaid’s dresses which they’re then able to keep. Whatever you go for is sure to be appreciated, but it’s something to think about when you’re planning the day.
