of forgetting something. Like I will decorate and set everything up and guess what…I forgot plates.
Did anyone use a certain checklist? Did you make your own? I try and think table by table but I’m just unsure. I dont have a lot of time.
How did you make sure you had every thing you needed?

I’m a big fan of lists, so I plan on making several throughout the planning process and I most certainly will have one for the day of for getting everything ready.

Grab a small notebook and keep it with you for about a week. Every time you think of something you have to do or remember to bring, write it in the notebook. Even when you think you have EVERYTHING on the list, keep the notebook with you because you might remember something else. Then type up your list and organize it into categories and time lines.
And if you forget something just remember it will not ruin your day unless you let it. Most weddings have at least one thing that goes wrong. Laugh it off and turn it into a good memory instead of a tragedy!

Do you have a couple of people that can help you? I made lists and then had other people read them to make sure we had everything. I also delegated things to my bridesmaids, but tried to give them related things, so that they weren’t trying to bring shoes and plates. My Maid/Matron of Honor was in charge of helping me get together everything for getting ready the day of (dresses, shoes, jewelry, etc.) and my bridesmaid was in charge of getting the flowers to the ceremony.

I would try to make your own list based on what your specific event. If you have one started that you want looked over let me know- I used to work for a catering company, and just did my own wedding so I’d be happy to take a look and see if there is anything missing.

That would be great. I’m actually planning my daughters wedding so I’m kind of more on the spot.
Nikki…that would be a HUGE help!
