Our post for the day will help you avoid making common mistakes on your wedding day. One of you most important wedding day responsibilities will be to set up for the wedding reception. This includes decorations, flowers, tables, chairs, etc.
Who should be helping?
Although you won’t be doing all the work yourself, this is your wedding and you need to make sure to be organized. Your family, bridesmaids, groomsmen and wedding vendors should be prepared to help. You need to make sure you have the time to get ready for the day!
It’s important that you are fully prepared for setup. If you are renting a reception center, you’ll only have a few hours designated for set up. Make sure you have a list of things that need to be done. Also clarify who will be doing what.
Keep in mind that EVERYTHING takes longer than expected when it comes to wedding planning. Be sure to be ready to work quickly. We strongly recommend asking your vendors to show up early to set up.
Prepare Your Vendors
Your wedding vendors will be a huge help on your wedding day but you need to make sure they are aware of your plans. It’s your responsibility to make it possible for each of your vendors have the time and space they need to set up.
Our most important advice is this… do your best setting up then kick back and enjoy your wedding day!
