WALK THROUGH THE DAY… BEFORE THE DAY:
A minimum of one time (or twenty-seven times) in the planning process—you should walk through the actual venue in person (and in your mind).
This is the time to think about the flow of the day, everything that will happen at any given moment, and how it will all come together. This is when you’ll realize that you printed really beautiful programs… but you have no idea how guests will get them. Now, you know to ask your cousin Joe to hand them out.
By thinking about the day from your perspective, a guest’s perspective, and even the vendors’ perspectives, you’ll be able to prepare for all kinds of kinks and work them out in advance.
A wedding planner or at the very least, a wedding day coordintor will help you with all these details and what the best flow at your venue should be.
