When planning a wedding, it’s very common for things to get out of control quickly. However, not because of the bride and groom, but because of what the bride and groom think is important. While every tiny little detail may seem important, the fact is, it isn’t. Some details are just not worth the sleepless nights. Think about it, is it really necessary to fight over the invitation font when most guests aren’t even going to remember what your invitations looked like? Of course not! However, here are a few things your guests will remember at your wedding, so pay attention.

Guests Will Remember

1.) The Entertainment. I can’t tell you how many weddings I’ve gone to that were absolutely gorgeous, but I didn’t have a good time. It doesn’t matter how beautiful the room is or how delicious the food is. If there’s nothing to do but stand around and watch you cut the cake, it’s basically the same as going out to a nice dinner with everyone you know. Oh, and two people are also getting married. You don’t have to spend much on entertainment, but if you want your guests to enjoy themselves, you should at least spend some. The number one reason guests leave a wedding early is because they aren’t having fun, so if you want them to stay, show them a good time!

2.) The Wedding Dress. Yes, it’s true. Many guests are just itching for the moment when the bride starts coming down the aisle. It is a wedding dress, and people can’t wait to see it! So even if you don’t put down a small down payment for your dress, at least take the time to ensure it has no wrinkles or creases and fits like a glove. The dress is also one of the features of your wedding that will be in almost every picture. Trust me. You want to make sure it’s absolutely perfect.

3.) The Love. One of my favorite moments of the wedding is when the groom sees the bride for the first time in her wedding dress and looks on their faces when they exchange their vows. Seeing how much they love each other makes me feel more connected to the couple! However, at the last wedding, I attended, I missed out on all of this. Not because were 300 people there, but because there was just poor seating arrangement and the bride and groom had no microphone. People want to see you, and they want to hear what you’re saying. Otherwise, you’re just making them sit in the sun for 30 minutes while you and your fiancé appear to have a polite conversation and kiss at the end.
