Chan­fash­ion is in a hur­ry to relieve you of per­son­al respon­si­bil­i­ty: here is a list of duties that you def­i­nite­ly need to del­e­gate on your wed­ding day.

Keep track of personal things

Phones, charg­ers, a cos­met­ic bag and a mil­lion nec­es­sary lit­tle things like a band-aid, invis­i­ble and hair­spray — it is bet­ter to trans­fer respon­si­bil­i­ty for these things on your wed­ding day to your most respon­si­ble friends. Don’t turn the bride’s hand­bag into a suit­case 🙂

Sep­a­rate­ly, you need to think about who will help you fol­low the wed­ding rings, box and mar­riage cer­tifi­cate before and after the cer­e­mo­ny. Decide where these things should be stored and who of the trust­ed peo­ple will take care of this, since you and the groom should enjoy the cer­e­mo­ny, and not think about this respon­si­bil­i­ty.

Solve small problems

Did your brides­maid­’s dress wrin­kle before a joint pho­to shoot? Is the flower arrange­ment on the table two cen­time­ters to the left of it? The groom’s moth­er’s phone is dead and she can’t find an out­let? Such ques­tions should def­i­nite­ly not fall on your shoul­ders!

The best solu­tion would be hire a wed­ding coor­di­na­tor: for a small fee, he will take away a lot of wor­ries from you and will be able to fix prob­lems even before you know about them. If it is not pos­si­ble to hire a spe­cial­ist, then arrange in advance with the brides­maids and grooms­men so that they can, in which case, take respon­si­bil­i­ty for resolv­ing minor issues. You also need to warn guests and con­trac­tors so that they know who to turn to for help and do not pull you over tri­fles.

Coordinate guests

No mat­ter how clear­ly you con­vey all the impor­tant infor­ma­tion to the guests, a mil­lion ques­tions will sure­ly arise on the wed­ding day. Some­one will not be able to find the cor­rect arrival at the wed­ding loca­tion and will call for clar­i­fi­ca­tion; oth­ers will be delayed due to traf­fic jams; some­one may need help dur­ing the ban­quet. Tak­ing care of guests is very impor­tant, but you and your fiancé will def­i­nite­ly not have enough time to solve all the prob­lems.

On the eve of the wed­ding, warn the invi­tees that they can con­tact the per­son in charge with all ques­tions — this may be the main brides­maid or wed­ding coor­di­na­tor — and pass on the phone num­ber. So the guests will know who to ask for help, and will not dis­tract you and the groom at the most incon­ve­nient moments.

Update social networks

There are so many moments at the wed­ding that you want to keep not only in your mem­o­ry, but also in your Insta­gram pro­file. When else to spam a mil­lion sto­ries, if not on a day like this 🙂 How­ev­er, don’t dive into this busi­ness too much — it’s bet­ter to ask your girl­friends for help, and leave view­ing pho­tos from guests for the next day.

In order not to lose the pub­li­ca­tions of guests, before the wed­ding, come up with a spe­cial hash­tag for social net­works. This way you can quick­ly find sto­ries and posts from each invi­tee and see many of the moments you missed.

babysit children

Lit­tle guests at a wed­ding give a lot of emo­tion and pos­i­tive emo­tions, but they also require a lot of atten­tion. If you want to invite guests with chil­dren to a wed­ding, then you need to cor­rect­ly plan the nuances: a sep­a­rate menu, a chil­dren’s table and, of course, enter­tain­ment so that the kids do not get bored.

But most impor­tant­ly, there should be peo­ple who will fol­low the chil­dren at the wed­ding. And in no case should it be you and your fiancé, even if they are your chil­dren! It is unlike­ly that you will be able to dis­tract your­self from pro­nounc­ing the vows at the wed­ding cer­e­mo­ny in order to change the baby’s dia­per or calm the whims. It is bet­ter to ask close friends or rel­a­tives for help, or even hire a nan­ny and an ani­ma­tor.

Control payments and tips

Mon­ey mat­ters are a del­i­cate mat­ter, but this does not mean that you and your fiancé should wor­ry about pay­ments at the end of the evening. The best solu­tion would be to pre­pare every­thing in advance, and del­e­gate the process of trans­fer­ring envelopes to one of your par­ents or your most respon­si­ble friends.

On the eve of the wed­ding, go to the tab Bud­get and see which parts of the pay­ments you have to trans­fer to the wed­ding spe­cial­ists and the restau­rant man­ag­er exact­ly on the wed­ding day. Also sep­a­rate­ly take into account the tip to the wait­ers serv­ing the ban­quet. Then dis­trib­ute the mon­ey into envelopes and sign them, so that they can then be trans­ferred to the per­son in charge. For con­ve­nience, you can also write a list so that the “trea­sur­er” can mark the trans­ferred pay­ments and not for­get any­one in the con­fu­sion 🙂
