7 Important Wedding Details People Forget To Plan

12 Feb 2022
7 Important Wedding Details People Forget To Plan

Planning a wedding is a big task, and it can be easy to forget important details. Well, we've got you covered! With so many weddings we've helped plan, we know exactly which details get missed. Read about wedding details people forget to plan, and why you shouldn't leave them off your wedding to-do list.

1. Extra Invitations

When buying your invitations, don't forget to get a few extra. Couples often forget to save one for themselves as a keepsake. It's always fun to look back at your wedding invitation years after you got married. Not only this, but it's important to keep one for the photographer to capture along with other details.

2. Change of Shoes

Most brides remember to buy shoes for the ceremony, but it's important to also get a pair for your reception. If your shoes aren't already comfortable, bring a change of shoes to rest your feet as you dance the night away at the reception.

3. Getaway Car

As your guests watch you depart, make sure you leave in style. If you don't already know someone with a nice car, check out Monterey Touring Vehicles. They have many beautiful cars available for your wedding day needs.

4. Pre-Wedding Meal

There can be a lot to do on the day of your wedding. Couples sometimes get so busy greeting their guests that they don't even get a chance to eat their meal at the reception. Because of this, it's important to plan a meal before the wedding. Make sure you and your wedding party stay hydrated and eat before the wedding so everyone stays energized for the day.

5. Welcome Bags

Welcome bags are always a sweet gesture for those who are traveling to your wedding from out of town. Don't forget to plan out what items go in these bags to make your guests feel appreciated for traveling far.

6. Feed your Vendors

Your vendors work hard to make your wedding day happen so don't forget to include them in your catering head count. Typically, your photographer, videographer, DJ or band, wedding planner, and officiant will need a meal. Don't forget to include specialty vendors like a photo booth operator.

7. Hotel Room Block

Lastly, booking a hotel room block is important for any out of town guests. It's also convenient for family and friends to stay in one hotel as they get ready for your big day, and spend quality time with each other. To book a hotel room block at the Portola Hotel & Spa, give us a call at 831-649-4511.
