I have a month left before the wedding. What are some of the lessons learned or advice you would give about the wedding day? What things did you forget during the planning? Luckly we are having a small ceremony and reception so i expect little chaos and drama, but you never know.

My only advice is to not sweat the small stuff, and take time to enjoy your day! 🙂

I just posted this in the unwanted wedding guests…
I’d suggest having your speeches organized, something about speeches will make some people stand up who have no business standing up, have it mapped out who you want to make a speech and tell the rest there simply isn’t enough time but you are thankful they wish to. From personal experience I wish I had done this.
Also an event organizer helped more than I can explain when the day came.
Other than that, even if everything has gone wrong, you are married and starting your new life, remember that when you get stressed, it’s just a party, what truly matters is the marriage

We actually decided to do no speeches and have told others to refrain from it. Maid/Matron of Honor and bestman were stressed about it so we said, lets just skip it.

I need to keep this in mind to tell our DOC/DJ. We’re having a speech by the Maid/Matron of Honor and one by the Best Man. If
FI’s brother is still the Best Man on our wedding day, I am terrified of what he will say. Our DJ will have strict instructions to cut him off if he starts to say anything remotely unrelated/rude/etc. If his cousin has to step up for us (please please please), I’m sure he’ll be fine. No one else gets the mic.

lol GREAT idea, we had a VERY strange uncomfortable speech by an ex drug user (thankful he’s an ex-user now) of 20 years and the speech consisted of uncomfortableness, slurred unrecognizable words, lots of confusion and a wish for “long suffering” but everyone, including the musician just didn’t know what to do and were all very confused and shocked. Take precautions!

That’s a good idea if you don’t really mind. We’d only planned the Bridesmaid or Best Man and Maid/Matron of Honor but others wanted to chime in, doing away with speeches all together would help this, just hope no one takes it upon themselves to stand clinking their glass lol

A good reception timeline works wonders.
Remember to have spare copies of any readings in case someone forgets.
No matter what you forget, the day will still be fabulous and you will be married to the man, or woman, of your dreams.
