Wedding mornings can be pretty hectic sometimes. There is so much to do! You and your bridesmaids have to get your hair and makeup done, steam the bridesmaid dresses, make sure everyone is fed and hydrated, and of course, have a good time and keep calm! And in the middle of all the morning frenzy, your photographer arrives and starts asking for invites, rings, and jewelry, just to name a few! It can certainly add a little stress if you don’t remember where you put everything. Or worse – if the room is so messy that you think you may have lost something. Today’s post will help you avoid that altogether by just delegating one small task to your maid of honor.
On the morning of your wedding day, there is one small task that you can ask your maid of honor to do and it will help to avoid having you run around looking for things at the last minute! This one little detail may seem pretty simple but it will have wonderful results, I promise! What is this small task, you ask?
Ask your maid of honor to gather your details all in one spot.
Yup, it’s as simple as that. If you can have your maid of honor gather all the special items that you’d like photographed, then it will save you the stress of having to find everything when I arrive on the morning of your wedding day and it’ll allow me to spend more time taking pictures, too! Having all your bridal details gathered in one spot will allow me to get started as soon as I arrive while avoiding you unnecessary stress. This will also ensure that you don’t forget to include anything.
Not sure what to have your maid of honor gather for you? Here is a list with just a few must-haves.
- your full invitation suite
- all three rings (engagement ring and wedding bands)
- heirloom items
- ring dish or ring box
- bridesmaid dresses
- your dress (stuffing removed and hanging on a nice hanger)
- welcome bag or box
- extra styling items (such as ribbon or single stem flowers)
I hope this tip is helpful to you! Feel free to share this post with your MOH =)
