I can’t imagine anyone taking on that job themselves as the bride when they have so many other things going on. But if they did, they would need to be very organized and keep detailed notebooks with information for the vendors. But the vendors themselves need to be professional and organized with that info so the bride doesn;t have to worry about those things.

Ask a close friend or family member to be in charge of certain things-the photos, the candy buffet, the sparklers etc (these are only examples)

The wedding party can pitch in on certain things too.

We sent the photographer a list of must have shots, and the family photo combos we needed, and a must play list to the DJ.

I had a timeline that I gave to our MC.

And, a basic list of things to bring, take home with us and set up that I kept with myself and my aunt who was helping with whatever I couldn’t attend to.

If what you are doing is complicated, keep lists.  You could have one copy of your “must take” photos for you, and one for your photographer, etc.

The other thing to remember is that if it is something you forget, then it is unlikely to matter.  Brides get really hung up on following every tradition, but your guests will not notice and your wedding will still be legal if you don’t.

I made little pocket schedules (with times for all “events”) and gave them to everyone in the wedding party + our parents. I think one of my bridesmaids spent most of the night running around keeping people on schedule. I, meanwhile, was oblivous and exhausted, hahahaha…..
