@gingerspice:  I found it really helpful to put a little bag together of things that my bridal party might need in an emergency– that may be the same as your “hospitality bags.”  The little items that they/we ended up using: safety pins, bobby pins, double-sided tape, little can of hair spray, mints/gum, advil, midol, white chalk (if you can find it–great for if you spill a little something on your dress)… I can’t think of anything else right now, but just enjoy your day and congratulations!

It really depends on how DIY your wedding is. My mom bought long-stemmed lighters for our 50-100 tealights that we’ll have to light ourselves. I would have forgotten, for sure! I am still looking for a cake knife because I forgot about it. I haven’t seen one under $40!

I suggest a last-minute vendor check to assure they’re all still on the same page.

We made house keys for family so we wouldn’t have to give out ours if we needed them to go pick something up.

Our last last-minute thing is going to be ICE. And lots of it. I still don’t know who’s going to be in charge of getting it to our various venues, but we MUST have ice for our self-serve bar and welcome dinner drinks.

@jmarvellous:  Try looking at Michael’s and using a 40% off coupon for the cake server. They sometimes even have 50% off coupons so it won’t be too bad.

The Michael’s I went to didn’t have them! I looked all over, then asked an employee. She looked too, then said, “Oh, that’s weird! Guess we don’t carry them any more.”

Oh, well. I think we’ll be fine!

@Soon2BeMrs7913:  Heh, I remembered last-minute that I have a white-and-purple-handled Wilton pie server. Since most of our decor is cream and lavender, it’s good enough for me!
