Honestly, I think that once the wedding starts, you won’t think about things that you forgot.  I ended up forgetting my second veil in the car and didn’t remember to wear my something old either.  They were both in the car and didn’t want to walk across the parking lot for them at that point.

I totally plan on forgetting things. I’m trying to do all my DIY projects ahead of time so that there is less and less to worry about the closer I get. I’m a scatterbrained mess.

One of my BMs almost forgot about programs for her wedding, and a few of us stayed up late the night before printing them off and tying ribbon around them. And her menus had a typo of her new last name, so even though they were placed on the tables, her mom and aunts spent the beginning of the reception taking them all OFF the tables before anyone noticed! My MOH didn’t even remember what her cake looked like she was so busy with everything else. I know we spend months on end looking at all these details, but when the day comes, you just have to go with it. It’ll all come out in the wash and the most important part is celebrating your love with your new husband and all your friends and family… not whether or not you remembered your lipstick.

I was pretty diligent about preparing and ‘thinking of everything’ …or so I thought!  I forgot to make a specific list of photos that I wanted to have my photog take.  I missed some shots that I assumed he would get.    The pics I did get were fabulous – but it erks me that I forgot something so simple!!!!

I am going to forget so much, I just know it. Even reading the replies above, I realized that I haven’t thought about programs or a shot list for my photographer at all! I think it’s ok, though – if you have all the big elements planned well, the small ones don’t matter as much.

I’ve been in many awedding, and as a professional bridesmaid, lemme tell you what most brides w/out planners forget: an emergency sewing/first aid/pins (hair and clothes) kit. If something on someone’s dress/hairdo is wrong, you can fix it right away without tears. It may seem small, and maybe you girls already have it covered, but its worth reminding.

We didn’t have a list of specific shots either.  The only one that was missing was just a plain one of my and my husband standing next to eachother portrait style.  I didn’t really care if I had one, but my MIL was trying to find one to frame after the wedding and we came up with nothing.

My best friend forgot to bring breakfast for her 30+ family members (hotel breakfast was too expensive). I bought bagels, OJ, and other yummy treats in bulk, and got to the hotel at 4AM the night before the wedding.  Don’t forget to pack snacks for everyone!

I forgot to get a ring-bearer pillow. Didn’t realize it until we were lined up to go into the church. So my adorable ring bearer bore no rings, but walked down the aisle looking very cute. The best man just held them for us.
