The day you say “I do” is supposed to be one of the happiest days of your life. After all you’ve spent hours planning what feels like every tiny detail imaginable. You’ve nailed down all of the important wedding traditions. Your vendors are all secured and your wedding cake is jaw-dropping confectionary perfection. Heck, you’ve even made sure to follow some very important wedding superstitions to ward off bad juju on your big day. What else could possibly go wrong?
Well, not to be the bearers of bad news, but quite a bit actually. As they say: “the devil is in the details.” Since weddings are such detailed affairs, it is easy to miss the little ones, the ones that barely even pop into your mind. Unfortunately missing those inconspicuous details could result in wedding day disaster.
If you are planning a destination wedding somewhere in America, did you know that the marriage license requirements vary from state to state? Or did you know that the lighting in your venue is not only something that you could control but should? So many of these small details can change the look and feel of your wedding without you even realizing that it could!
So don’t get caught off guard. Make sure that you are even more prepared for your wedding by thinking about these little things ahead of time. After all, the last thing you want to hear on your wedding day is “I told you so” about an avoidable situation!
Sure the morning of your wedding, there is no doubt that your stomach is going to be in a flurry of butterflies. But skipping a meal should be out of the question, especially breakfast. Why does this morning detail matter? Because think about it: you’re definitely not going to be eating until late dinner time, and do you really want to be starving all day? What with the you being busy getting married, taking photos, schmoozing eating between getting ready and getting to party will likely not happen. Plus after slurping down those morning mimosas, you need some sustenance.
