Tips to Enjoy Your Wedding Day

September 05, 2015

Every bride and groom wants their wedding day to be perfect. However, we know that "Murphy" is often an uninvited guest at a wedding. 

Murphy's Law is an adage in Western culture which states "anything that can go wrong, will go wrong."

We believe strongly that checking and double checking all of your wedding plans will help prevent Murphy’s appearance at your wedding.

  • If you’re not hiring a wedding coordinator, we suggest that 4 to 6 weeks before your wedding, you call every vendor (caterer, bartender, florist, baker, musician, dj, photographer, limo driver, hair and make-up specialist, etc.) as well as both ceremony and reception sites to make sure that everyone has the correct wedding date, time of arrival, and address.
  • Contact your officiant to confirm plans for the rehearsal as well as the wedding.
  • Make sure that all members of the bridal party, including the parents of young attendants, have the same information.
  • Make sure that you have all appropriate cell phone numbers for all wedding party members, vendors, venues, and other participants.
  • Review your guest list and contact anyone who has not responded.  Bridesmaids and/or family members can help with this if the list is long.  Politely state that you have not heard from them and wanted to make sure that they received the invitation.  
  • Confirm the final count with your caterer.
  • Scuff the soles of your wedding day shoes, charge your cell phone battery, double check your "emergency" kit, pick up your gown, make sure all the groomsmen have tried on their tuxes and then relax.  

Enjoy your day! Sorry you couldn't make it Murphy!!!
