The wedding planning phase is usually brutal. From finding the right venue to choosing the menu, organising the seating chart, and coordinating with the caterer, it’s a non-stop circus until the day you finally get the chance to stand at the altar and say, “I do”. All of this work is essential if you’d like to make your wedding day as amazing as it can be.
However, this does not mean that once it’s done, you can relax and take a break. There are many more details that will need to be finalized, even after you’ve found your venue and concluded on all the other big things. In this blog, we are going to focus on the last part of the wedding preparation phase and talk about some of the key details that you’ll need to finalise with your venue before everything is said and done.
So let’s get started…
1. Complete a Detailed Itinerary
One of the most important details that you’ll need to finalize and submit to your venue is your itinerary. This will help your venue’s staff make sure that your wedding day goes seamlessly by timing things such as the serving of meals and the cutting of the cake to fit your itinerary.
2. Access Details
You’ll also want to make sure that you’ve spoken to your venue representatives and discussed the logistics associated with your suppliers. Find out where suppliers, such as your caterer and florist, will be able to enter on the morning of the wedding, and what time those access paths will be open. This will help you better coordinate with your suppliers, which is essential if you’d like to make sure your wedding goes off without a hitch.
3. Final Headcount
And finally, you’ll need to provide your venue with the final headcount. This detail is probably the most important one because it will impact everything, from the number of place settings that are set at your reception, to the number of seats that will be arranged for your ceremony. So once you’ve received the final RSVPs, it’s imperative that you make sure your venue gets access to these figures as well.
