They say that your wedding day is the happiest day of your life. However, what they don’t tell you is just how much work, planning, and money goes into creating the big day. Planning a wedding is no small task, and while the payoff is worth it in the end, it can be one of the most stressful events you will ever arrange. 

Due to how stressful the planning and preparations can be, it is completely natural that you may forget a few things along the way. So, we have put together this cheat sheet especially for you with the top things you may forget to plan for your big day. You can thank us later!   

Wedding Cars

From finding the perfect dress to a venue that you just fall in love with straight away, many couples forget to consider transportation and how they are going to get around on their wedding day. But this isn’t something that you want to forget about for too long as wedding cars often get booked up years in advance. But don’t worry, you can find a range of perfect vehicles to transport you throughout your wedding day online at sites like Don’t forget that wedding cars also look great in your photographs! 

Overnight Bag

So much preparation goes into the wedding and ceremony itself that it can be easy to forget about the events that take place after you’ve said your vows. No matter how tired you are on your wedding night, you will still want to get changed out of your dress (sorry, you can’t wear it forever!), brush your teeth, and take your makeup off. So, you are going to need an overnight bag. Be sure to prepare this ahead of the big day and maybe ask one of your bridesmaids to make sure it is in your room for when you are ready to crash out.  

Tip Envelopes

While you may be responsible for the planning and organising of your big day, there are also going to be a lot of other people involved to make sure that the whole event goes smoothly. Of course, you want to be able to tip those who have helped, such as the caterers, band, or waiters, but what bride or groom carries change? Therefore, we recommend that ahead of the day you arrange tip envelopes and give a trusted guest the task of handing them out to those who you would like to give an extra thank you.

Emergency Kit 

No matter how organised you are, something is going to go wrong on your wedding day. Unfortunately, it is just one of those things in life that you can’t avoid. However, what you can do is be prepared for every eventuality. So, be sure to have an emergency kit on hand that includes a few wedding day essentials, such as a sewing kit, some plasters, tissues, and a safety pin just in case of a wardrobe malfunction

While planning your big day can feel overwhelming, by following these tips and advice and remembering that the day is ultimately about you and your other half, you can ensure that your wedding day is everything you’ve dreamed of and more.
