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.
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.

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 🙂
