A wedding is the biggest day for a lot of us, or at least, till that point in life, it is the biggest and most significant milestone we have conquered. However, as Asian and weddings in the East have it, they must be a giant affair inviting all relatives known and unknown, parent’s childhood friends, your sisters friend’s boyfriend and so on snowballing it to become a massive celebration with over 500 people. Organizing this ordeal is as stressful as it may be fun in the aftermath. Here are a few things you might want to keep your eye on as these are easily overlooked during the hustle and bustle of the wedding day.
Thank You Presents
While the guests bring the happy couple presents, it has now become a practice to give the guests a more sophisticated version of a ‘goodie’ bag when parting ways after the wedding. Some gift ideas for this include cheap/ expensive silverware, nail polish and other toiletries, cookies or even a thank you pot plant. It is certainly not essential to give such a parting gift, but most people opt to do so. However, I have been to many a weddings where they have forgotten to distribute these gifts during the celebrations and being left with three hundred little favor bags filled with tiny presents. Make sure to have a responsible person in charge to distribute these after dinner or when they are leaving, or simply lay it on the table as a part of the decorations.
While we make sure to send the table numbers along with the wedding invitation, there is bound to be a few dozen people who not only forget the invite completely but do not remember the table number they were given. Thus, it is almost mandatory to have in place a printed copy of the seating plan at the venue for reference. However, this is not enough, while it may take custom brochure printing services to create giant block letters, some still require assistance in finding their name and allocating someone to do this is, minimizes later confusions.

Hymn Sheets, Cake Boxes
Both the above, the hymn sheets and the cake boxes need to arrive at the location prior to the family and couple. Thus, it is essential to delegate it to someone to bring and arrange without the bride having to worry about it. These though essential to the wedding ceremony are small objects easily overlooked, and thus need someone to check and recheck on the day of the wedding, and this should not be the bride or her mother.
