If you are not sending out paper invitations for the rehearsal dinner (we didn’t), at least do e-vites or an email…something written down! We relied on word-of-mouth, which ended up with one aunt and uncle not sure if they were invited (they were invited, but my husband, the one who was supposed to invite them, didn’t do it clearly enough…he just told them when the rehearsal dinner WAS. So they weren’t sure if that was an invitation or not. Blurgh), my MOM AND DAD being an HOUR late to the rehearsal dinner (they went to the wrong location of the restaurant, and then got stuck in traffic!), the best man also being an hour late (he also went to the wrong location of the restaurant, same deal as my parents) and one set of grandparents getting lost because they forgot the address of the restaurant. Do some kind of written-down invitation for the rehearsal dinner! Even if it’s just email!

I’m remembering more!

 

Have someone check your back (back of your dress, back of your hair) before the ceremony! At some point, my veil came askew in the pre-ceremony craziness, and since it was attached to the back of my head (as opposed to the top of my head), I couldn’t see it when I looked in the mirror. So my veil is totally crooked in all the ceremony photos.
