So, you ask me whether it is possible to be cool, calm and collected on your wedding day. And I say YES! IT. IS. POSSIBLE. And how that is possible is by being incredibly organised and it’s not as hard as you think. Follow by tips below to be the coolest cucumber bride ever.
# 1 Have a point of contact person
This is a person that if anything happens or if there’s a question needed to be asked by a vendor or guest they would go ask this person instead of yourself or your partner. Couples would generally have a parent or close friend as their point of contact. There’s no need for you or your partner to be stressing out for very minor details whilst getting ready for the big day.
By having a point of contact reduces the risk of a meltdown immensely!
# 2 Wedding day binder
Now this doesn’t have to be fancy or anything. All you need is a basic folder that contains every aspect of your wedding such as an itinerary, event schedule, vendors service and contact details, bridal party contact details, and any other information you think would be relevant. I suggest making a couple of these folders, keep one with your bridal party, another with your partners bridal party, another for your point of contact and anyone else that you think would benefit from this information. Your wedding planner or coordinator will generally have all these handouts done up for you all you have to do is print them out.
# 3 Hire a wedding planner or an on the day coordinator
If organisation isn’t your forte or you and your partner are very busy people and don’t have a lot of time perhaps look into hiring a wedding planner or an on the day coordinator.
Hiring a wedding planner is a fantastic way to ensure you don’t have to lift a finger and can concentrate on the important things rather than stressing about organising an entire wedding by yourself.
If you love planning or really want to give it your all and do it yourself that’s amazing, go you!!! But unfortunately, on the day you can’t be in 2 places at once … annoying I know. By hiring an on the day coordinator, they will be able to oversee all the details and seamlessly bring all your hard work together whilst you and your partner get ready for the big day. This can save you so much hassle.
# 4 Have a last minute wedding day checklist
