Wedding Planning | Small Details Not To Forget

During wedding planning, some obvious factors tend to take centre stage. Our venues, for example, are painstakingly selected, as are our wedding dress. These, and other priorities like them, were probably the first things to cross your mind at the planning stages. And, there’s no denying the essential part they play in your day.

Hiding behind these spotlights are the jobs which we often consider less important. These are small details which you convince yourself don’t matter all that much. But, those sideline issues may need a little more light shining on them if you want your big day to come together. Too often, neglecting areas becomes a significant wedding day regret. Don’t let that happen to you. Instead, keep on reading to find out about the jobs you didn’t think mattered, but which actually do.
The rings
Many would assume that wedding rings were a priority during planning stages, but that isn’t always the case. In truth, you’ll have so much on your plate that these may fall by the wayside. When the time does come to pick a design, you may settle on something in half an hour or less. Your guests won’t even see these, right? Remember, though, that you’ll need to look at these rings for the rest of your lives. As such, you should take more time over these then you do your venue itself. Read up on your options on sites like Diamond Expert. Take the time to measure your ring sizes, and send your final products back if you aren’t happy. It may seem like an extra task at this busy time, but it ensures those rings are for life, not just for your wedding day.

The meal

In the majority of cases, wedding breakfasts take up more time than the ceremony itself. Regardless, we often settle for any old caterer we can find. Some of us even consider that the cheaper we can go here, the better. Cheap meals free us up with more money for location, after all. That’s part of the reason wedding food always tends to be so awful. Don’t let the meal leave a terrible taste on your big day by taking more time here. Consider whether you want a sit-down dinner or a buffet. Seek caterers who offer quality food rather than standard fare. You may have to pay a little extra, but a fantastic meal can more than cover cutbacks in other areas.

The after party
Unsurprisingly, the after party is often an afterthought. That makes no sense when you consider that this is the part of your day the most people will see. It’s the only impression of your big day that your evening guests are going to get. So, make it a good one. Think hard about evening decorations such as sweet tables and dancefloor drapes. We had a donut wall which was definitely a talking point. Pick a DJ or band who’s sure to get the party pumping. Whatever you do, don’t leave this last on your list and end your day on a dud note.
