10 things it's absolutely fine to forget when planning your wedding

With your endless checklists and wedding planning stresses there are bound to be some big-day elements that fall through the cracks. It’s impossible to think about every last detail, nor does it really matter – you’ll still have a fantastic time!

You might forget to plan the following things but that’s fine, your guests will still have the time of their lives…


1. Wedding signage and directions

You were in so much of a rush to get your big day invitations out that you forgot to include directions. What’s more, you haven’t had time to pop any signs up in the local village either. Luckily, this needn’t worry you. With satnav and guests travelling together they’re sure to make your special day.

2. Kids’ activities

So you’ve forgotten to think of an itinerary for the kids. With no games and no wedding babysitter you’re probably worried the day is going to be havoc! Take a step back and relax knowing that parents will do their best to keep kids in tow. Plus, any minor mishaps involving your littlest guests will just add to the comedy moments of your special day!

3. A list of ‘must-have’ photographs

You’ve been so busy planning the final elements of your big day, you’ve forgotten to create, or share, a Pinterest board of must-have images with your photographer. Rest assured knowing that your photographer is an expert in these matters. He or she knows all the best shots to capture and you’ll also get the opportunity to improvise, or suggest ideas, during your time alone in the drinks reception.

4. Menu cards

Menu cards can be a ‘nice-to-have’ and provide a way to add to your table décor, but they’re not essential. They certainly won’t impact on your guests’ experience of your mouth-watering wedding food.

5. Nominating a toastmaster

It’s easy to forget about the little details - like who will announce the cutting of the cake and the first dance, and who will welcome you as Mr and Mrs into the wedding breakfast. If the day arrives and you realise you have nobody nominated to announce these things, don’t panic. Firstly, you’ll find the day just flows. Secondly, more often than not, your venue co-ordinator will take on this role. You can also grab a member of your family, or a trusty bridesmaid or usher to take on this responsibility.

6. The guestbook

While it’s nice to have a keepsake with messages from all your family and friends, it’s not the end of the world if you’ve forgotten to buy or bring your guestbook. The majority, if not all, of your wedding guests will be bringing your cards – which will most likely replicate any message they would write in your guestbook.

7. Favours

With so much to organise, the additional elements, like favours, can be easily forgotten. The truth is guests are:

  1. Unlikely to notice
  2. Unlikely to care
  3. Would have thrown it in the bottom of their bag anyway

8. Those extra little bits of décor

As a bride you’ll want everything about your wedding day to look good – and that includes the bar area and dessert table. Don’t worry if you forget to plan every single décor detail though. Truth is, you’ll be the only one that will notice plain white linen. While that extra bit of sparkle and décor might make a huge difference to you, your guests will admire your efforts either way.

9. Comfort baskets

It’s become increasingly popular to provide little baskets of comforts in the bathrooms, featuring items ranging from painkillers to plasters and deodorant. While nice, these certainly aren’t a necessity. Your guests are likely to be as prepared as you for your wedding day anyway!

10. The last dance

Some couples like to plan a last dance song as the finale to their night – but don’t worry if you’ve forgotten. Many of your guests will have gone home before the final dance, while others will be too tipsy to recall what on earth was playing. Embrace the moment – your DJ knows what he’s doing - and if you’re really worried, make a last minute arrangement on the spot with your DJ.
