Wedding Planning: 3 Commonly Overlooked Wedding Details That Could Ruin Your Day

Pulling off a beautiful wedding takes a lot of skill and great attention to detail. From the beading on the dress to the songs played during the reception, every detail requires precise planning and perfect execution. Unfortunately, there are a few things brides tend to forget about when planning their perfect day. While they're vetting makeup artists and selecting flower arrangements, brides tend to forget these details because they appear small and inconsequential. Unfortunately, they are anything but. So, if you're in the throes of planning your own wedding, don't forget to pay attention to these details. 

Time Management

Because they are busy behind the scenes, brides usually don't notice how much time guests spend waiting for them. If you've ever been a guest at a wedding, you know how frustrating the waiting can be. If a wedding isn't timed perfectly, guests have to wait several times throughout the day. They wait for the ceremony to begin, for the well wishers to slowly make their way out of the building and for the bridal party to sit for portraits. When they finally arrive at the reception, guests have to wait again for the bride and groom to arrive before they can eat. If you want a flawless, seamless day, you have to time everything perfectly. It's also a great idea to hire a coordinator to move things along. 

Bathroom Considerations

Who wants to think about bathrooms? No one really, but if you're hosting a large event, such as a wedding, you need enough bathrooms to accommodate your guests. If you don't have enough, your guests will have to wait in line. And they might find that difficult and a bit uncomfortable to do, especially if you have an open bar. If your venue doesn't have enough bathrooms, you might want to consider renting outdoor units to be kinder to your guests. For more information, contact Action Toilet Rentals or a similar company.

Seating Plans

While most brides agonize over who will sit where, depending on who gets along and who doesn't, most forget to consider guests who may have special needs. If you want everyone to enjoy your ceremony and reception, you have to make sure they can hear what's going on and move about freely. This might mean placing people who can't hear very well up front and putting those with mobility issues in a more open area. 

With so many details to see to, planning a wedding is stressful. And it's impossible for one person to see to every last detail. So, don't be afraid to ask for help. You might even wish to consider hiring an event coordinator or wedding planner to help you out.
