Have you found a sign-in book, pen/back-up pen and photo for the table? Send-off items (bubbles, sparklers, etc)? Are you changing clothes before you have your send off?  hmmm…that’s all I can think of!

I can’t think of anything…but Honestly If I were as close as you I wouldn’t be worried about an enterance. I’d just go in. lol. I hate too much attention! = ) You’ll be fine. You’re DOC will have it covered.

Are you doing parents’ dances or bouquet/garter tossing? What about timing of cutting of the cake (if you’re having one)? I know many people are cutting certain things out,but that’s all I can think of too.

The first dance with the couple is usually alone,early on,signalling the start of open dancing. Parent dances can be after your first dance or a little later on. The F/D dance was announced about an hour and a half after the reception began,with the music switching for M/S dance. I think you can do whatever you want,but discuss it with whoever’s doing your music so you all know what’s happening and when.

We had only short dances for each…a whole song is way too long. A few minutes is fine.

Don’t forget any jewelry and accessories! What about tips for vendors?

I think there are typically three main songs to be played:

  1. First dance for you and your husband
  2. Father Daughter
  3. Mother Son

I have always seen these three seperate short songs.  I think switching part way through a song would be tough. 


I am getting ready for my wedding next week, here are a few of the things on my last minute to do list.

  1. List of shots for the photographers
  2. Rehearsal dinner dress
  3. Thank you presents and cards for everyone (just need to package them)
  4. Arrange transportation
  5. Seating chart
  6. Place to put the cards at the reception
  7. Something to wear the morning of the wedding while getting hair and makeup done
