1. Emergency Kit Essentials: Pack a day-of emergency kit with essentials like safety pins, a sewing kit, stain remover, headache medicine, and band-aids. This small yet mighty kit can be a lifesaver for unexpected mishaps.

2. Hydration and Snacks: Amidst the excitement, it’s easy to forget to eat and stay hydrated. Arrange for light snacks and plenty of water to keep yourself and your wedding party fueled and energized throughout the day.

3. Wedding Rings Reminder: Assign someone trustworthy to be in charge of the wedding rings. With the excitement and flurry of activities, having a designated ring bearer ensures this crucial detail doesn’t slip through the cracks.

4. Vendor Communication: Establish a point person to liaise with vendors on the wedding day. This allows you to focus on the celebration while ensuring someone is handling any last-minute questions or issues that may arise.

5. Comfortable Shoes for Later: While those glamorous heels look stunning, have a pair of comfortable shoes ready for later in the day. Your feet will thank you, especially during the dance floor festivities.

6. Charger for Electronics: With all the photo-taking and social media sharing, your phone and other electronic devices may need a power boost. Have a charger on hand to keep them charged throughout the day.

7. Final Beauty Check: Assign a bridesmaid or trusted friend to help with final beauty checks. From ensuring there’s no lipstick on your teeth to fixing stray hairs, having an extra set of eyes is invaluable.

8. Timeline Printouts: While you may have the day’s timeline memorized, printouts for key members of the wedding party and vendors can help everyone stay on the same page and ensure smooth transitions.

9. Thank-You Speech Reminders: If you plan to give thank-you speeches, jot down key points on a small card. This will help you express your gratitude eloquently without the pressure of remembering every detail.

10. Extra Copies of Important Documents: Bring extra copies of important documents, like your marriage license or vendor contracts. You never know when these may come in handy, and having backups provides peace of mind.

As you embark on this incredible journey, don’t let the day-of details slip through the cracks. These 10 often-forgotten tips will ensure your wedding day is not only memorable but flawlessly executed, leaving you free to savor every magical moment. Happy celebrating!
