We had prepared I-Spy and Mad Libs for the tables and completely forgot until we were sitting down to our wedding dinner. My husband and I stopped what we were doing to go and search for them LOL. I very nearly forgot my garter too hahaha. Bride brain. It happens when you’re running around all over the place 🙂

@MrsSancerre:  A crochet hook to button up my dress! My dress had tiny little loops to pull over the buttons to make sure it stayed on. My mom bought it about an hour before the ceremony!

Also OFF candles for our outdoor reception and sternos for our smores bar. Luckily my husband thought of these items and picked them up.

Oh, and I didn’t pay attention to the fact that the seamstress didn’t take the straps off my dress and when I put it on, we discovered that they don’t just tuck in and become invisible. So, at the last minute, I decided to use the straps.

Not really ” my problem”, but we had designated people from each side of the family to round up relatives for portraits in case any were missed during designated portrait time… And both of them completely forgot to do their jobs LoL.  Well maybe not completely, but we definitely didn’t get any of the missing portraits done!  Also not quite wedding, but I did forget to pack sneakers for the honeymoon (pre packed since we wouldn’t be back between the wedding and the honeymoon).

I crocheted a little bag and hand stitched in the lining in blue fabric so that I had something blue, I exit the church and realize I forgot about something borrowed… Oh well, I’m sure our marriage will not fall on that little detail! 🙂

No big forgets (that I know of!) but we did choose the signing of the register music the day before the wedding, about an hour before we left the house. And then my OH had to burn a CD with the ceremony music on.

I’m getting married this Saturday and I forgot about something stupid and unnecessary – the poles on the tent. They are bare. They look fine, but that’s not good enough. I knew there had to be something we could do to make the ceremony space look better and this is it!! I need drapes for the poles. Thankfully, it seems they are inexpensive to rent.

The groomsmen boutionairres were left at my sister’s house.  I forgot that to take pictures with a lot of people and forgot to talk to people.

Forgot my hankie my sister gave me and Mr. Redbee and I were thrown into a cab with only our clothes on our backs.  We were in the bag and not paying attention.  So, we ended up luckily stumbling into our apartment bare foot with it being left unlocked.
