5 Things People Always Forget For Their Wedding

5 Things People Always Forget For Their Wedding


It’s no wonder people can get forgetful on the lead up to their big day. Weddings are one of the most stressful events in a person’s life! Flowers, cakes, dress, kilts and guests and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. There’s so much to think about and organise for your wedding day. The average UK wedding can cost upwards of £25000, which is stressful enough! So we have compiled a list of the top 5 things people always forget for their wedding.


In between all the obvious things you need to remember or pay for, it’s no surprise there are little things that may slip through the cracks.


While we’re sure there are more than just the five we have, we thought we’d give a little list of things that you should make a note of for your wedding day…


1. Something for the kids to do
If you’re having children attending on your wedding day, you may forget that your wedding isn’t that exciting for them. Kids get bored and when they get bored, they get mischievous. The last thing you want on your big day is an unhappy child screaming and crying. Make sure, at the reception at least, the children have something fun to do. Bring some games and toys or set up an area that allows them to play with each other. This will keep them entertained!



2. Schedule for the speeches
We’ve all been to a wedding where the speeches just feel never-ending! Yes, they are heartfelt and touching. However, sometimes they just go on for too long. Find out who will be making speeches and allow them an amount of time to do it in. Nobody wants endless rambling and restless guests. This will mean everything goes smoothly, don’t be too rigid though! Wiggle room is key!


3. Someone to help take gifts home after the reception
Whether you’re staying in a hotel, leaving the reception to go on your honeymoon or going home after, someone will need to give you a hand with your presents. It’s still common for guests to bring their gifts to the wedding. How are you going to get them all home yourself after all is said and done? You’ll need to arrange for a kind soul (or two!) to be ready to help you take it all home after your wedding day.


4. Legal documents
You may surprise to hear that a lot of people forget their legal documents on the big day! If you don’t have your legal documents you cannot legally marry. So, forgetting them could mean opting for a commitment ceremony instead and then making it official at a later date. Which is absolutely not ideal. Make sure everything is in order and present ahead of your wedding day!



5. Dental treatment
It’s become incredibly common for couples, as well at the bride’s and the groom’s parties to opt for some treatment. Nobody wants to look bad for those photos! However, people make the mistake of going for last minute teeth whitening just before the big day. Not knowing that it could result in them needing a lot more work done before they are even able to get the whitening treatment. For example, if you suffer from dental problems like gum disease, you won’t be able to be treated until the problem is resolved.


Straightening treatments take a while to achieve the finished results too! So it’s best, that if you’re thinking about dental treatment to get started well in advance! If you don’t have a clinic in mind for your treatment you can use DefactoDentists.com to locate your perfect dentist! Type in your location and they’ll do the rest, you can even narrow the list to include clinics that provide your treatment. Whether it’s teeth whitening or implants, Defacto will have the perfect practice for you!


We hope that getting hitched will go off without at a hitch, but make sure you’ve got an extensive list at hand! The last thing you need is to be forgetting things…
