Wedding Planning Tasks that you should not be overlooking but often do! Weddings are all about the details, both large and small. Pulling an entire event together is an enormous task for even the most organized person. Personal touches are often the easiest to overlook but the most impactful. Often times, thinking through the theme, colors and vibe you want to embrace for your wedding can help you plan and tackle lots of details to keep you on schedule and throw a gorgeous event.
Wedding Planning Tasks : Flowers
Flowers would definitely fall under one of the larger details in planning a wedding, but take it a step further and make sure your selections are creating the style you want. Work with your florist and brief them on the atmosphere, colors and size of your venue to put together the best package and florals that will capture the feel you’re envisioning.
Knowing what flowers and color scheme you’re aiming for will be even more thoughtful and important when incorporated into save the date and invitation details.
Wedding Planning Tasks:Invitations
You’ve spent months and months planning and carefully crafting your wedding. Now guests will get a first glimpse of your wedding with the invitation. Incorporate the colors you’ll be featuring and even the florals you’ll be using into your save the date and invitation to reflect the theme and clearly convey all your hard work in crafting the day. Double and triple check your guest list, spelling, and etiquette before ordering and planning out your schedule for when you’ll need your RSVP’s back.
Figuring out a response and organization system well beforehand is another detail you’ll want sorted prior to sending out invitations. Will you be receiving them or another member of the family? Do you prefer a formal response or is a postcard response more suited to the style of wedding you’re throwing? Take all of this into consideration before selecting your custom wedding invitations.
Wedding Planning Tasks : Registry
Along with flowers, theme and color palette, another detail you’ll want to tackle well before the day is your registry. Any showers thrown in your honor will need their own timeline, planning and invitations to be sent. Make it easier for those throwing these events and your guests by working out where and what you want to register for.
Make it as easy for guests to find the information they need. Especially since more and more couples are including items that are not necessarily the traditional homewares of the past. Creating a new life together often means it will be time for larger purchases like a firm new mattress or other furniture to fill your home. This way you can have everything squared away well before it’s time to get your shower invitations together.
One of the final steps to plan are the details for the ceremony, event space and reception. A nice touch is to tie your invitation theme over into your ceremony programs and through to your reception menus, place cards and signage. Direct Guests to know when and where you want them to be, guide them every step of the way with your beautifully presented details and information.
