Almost everyone has a dream wedding plan in their head: white dress, smart tuxedo, that first dance, leaving for your honeymoon in a beautiful vintage car.
While it’s easy to get caught up in the romance of it all, there are a lot of things big and small that you may not think to consider when preparing for a wedding. With a wedding, the details—whether it’s gifts for your groomsmen or having a repair kit handy—can make or break the day.
Below, you can find a checklist to help you make sure that you’ve thought about and planned for every part of your wedding: from the earrings worn by the flower girls to the ribbons on your car.

Wedding Venue and Reception Checklist
When choosing the location for your wedding and reception, you need to take quite a few things into consideration. Here are some things you should ask about when choosing a venue:
♥ Disabled Access. Particularly important if you have elderly relatives or friends with walkers or wheelchairs.
♥ Maximum Capacity. You’ll probably book the wedding & reception venue before deciding on final numbers. Check that they can accommodate the number of people you wish to invite. The last thing you want is a venue that’s too small for your guests to fit comfortably.
♥ Safety Measures. Many venues require the wedding party to take out liability insurance in the event of injury or property damage. Make sure you ask about any insurance requirements, or any other safety-related information .
