Wedding season is always a highly hectic time, not only for the couple tying the knot, but for everyone involved. Amidst all the chaos, we usually tend to forget the little things we need to look into, and most of the time it’s the little things that end up playing the largest role at the wedding ceremony. In order for you not do forget, the best and most obvious option is to create a checklist that will come in handy during the planning and prepping period.
The invitations ought to have been sent out to the guests and RSVP-d to as well, so that you know the exact number of guests you’re to expect and can continue planning accordingly. Invitations are the first thing you need to check off your list, so make sure this is written right on top!
The next on the list is the venue; you should have already booked the solemnization venue in Singapore and the reception venue. Make bookings as early as possible in order to avoid all disappointments, select a place convenient for you and your guests and make all prior arrangements weeks before so that you’re all set on the day of the wedding.
The rings are probably the smallest item but the one thing that matters the most! Make sure once purchased, they are kept in a safe place and taken to the venue without forgetting. Once you’re at the venue, don’t leave them lying around as the rings play the biggest role.
Food and catering
Don’t forget to add the food and catering into your list. Making the booking with the wedding catering as early as possible and discussing the menu and the type of food you’re expecting is also important. Give a thought or two to the drinks and dessert as well, and add these into the list as well!
Bride and groom outfits
Don’t forget the outfits such as the bride’s and bridesmaids’ dresses, the groom’s suit, the flower bouquet, the flower brooch for the groomsmen, the shoes and the extras that add on to the outfit. Make sure these are all prepared and ready, the outfits cleaned and ironed, and ready to take. Assign close family and friends on outfit duty, so that the responsibilities are shared.
Music and entertainment
Make a list of the music, the playlists, hire a DJ if you’re hoping to have some entertainment. Along with this, assign time off the day for speeches and toasts to be given by close friends and family.
These are the most essential things you’ll have to add to your checklist!
