Top 10 Things DIY Brides and Grooms Forget

DIY Wedding Couple

We all forget things. Its perfectly understandable that with all that’s going on in your head while you’re packing for your wedding weekend, the DIY wedding couple will forget some things…even some really important things.  Here is a list of what I’ve found to be the most often forgotten items from 10+ years of wedding planning.  And then a little lagniappe list just for giggles…

  1. Marriage license
  2. Passports (for honeymoon travel)
  3. Birth Certificates (to get the marriage license)
  4. Tips (Don’t know who to tip? Check out my To Tip or Not To Tip post!)
  5. Sign in Book (or sign in item) and the pen or markers to go with it (I guess this could be considered two things, but that would make this a list of 11 items and my OCD side won’t allow that!)
  6. Cake knife set
  7. Box or container for cards
  8. Garter
  9. Toss Bouquet
  10. Rings

And a list of not-so-common but real-life moments when items you think you’d never forget were forgotten:

  • Bride or bridesmaid shoes
  • bride’s makeup
  • groom’s pants
  • bridesmaid’s skirt
  • drum sticks (this was the drummer in the band that the bride hired, not the bride, but still…)
