We have a lot of great ideas and guidance after being in the wedding industry for many years. Buffalo Entertainment Pros had a lot of experience serving the new couples’ family to entertain their visitors. With that experience, we want to share with you things that you need to avoid so that you will not make mistakes during your most memorable moments. There are also some things we would advise you not to do. We’re not knocking anyone who chooses to do the ten things listed below, but in general, they don’t produce the best results. Whatever your thoughts or situation, we’re here to work WITH you to reduce stress and celebrate more life-changing moments.
- Recruiting Friends and Family. Be cautious unless they are professionals. It could have a negative impact on your wedding/event as well as your relationships. That is why you should hire professionals, we can help you how to find the best ones just by reading this link.
- Pre-wedding vendor meetings are being skipped. From hair trials to how you’re introduced, there’s only one chance to get it right, so meet with professionals ahead of time to prepare the final presentation and ensure you like everything.
- There is no Plan B. Most commonly, this is a rain plan for outdoor events, but in any case, don’t skip having a backup plan for relevant areas.
- There is no shot list for photographers. Take the time to jot down the images you truly desire. Not only will they not be overlooked, but your photographer will be able to plan when it is best to capture them. If you don’t know what that is or how to create a new one. We can help you with this article about creating the perfect shot list.
- There will be no microphones for the ceremony. If you have more than 100 people (5 rows), you will need microphones.
- There is a significant time difference between the ceremony and the reception. If it’s unavoidable, find ways to keep your guests entertained.
- You’re cramming your schedule. You’ve worked hard to get to this point, and you want to enjoy it. With so many moving parts and people, things may take longer than expected, so be patient.
- It’s been a long day. You don’t want to cram your day, but you also don’t want it to be too long and boring. The average timeframe for the ceremony and reception is 5-6 hours.
- Making the toasts “open-mic.” This can lead to both unwanted stories and less time for socializing and dancing.
- Not scheduling time for yourself. It’s a long (fun) day with a lot going on, so make sure to eat, find some quiet time with your partner, connect with those who matter most, and take a step back to take it all in at some point.
