Because of this, you tend to forget some of the small things you planned to include in your wedding ceremony.
Here’s what you can simply not afford to forget.
Wedding bands without which your wedding cannot take place
People often forget to remove their engagement ring from their ring finger. Most of the time, people get married after months of remaining engaged to each other and that’s the reasons they get used to wearing their engagement ring. Even if you like your engagement ring more than your wedding band, you have to remove it for some time or relocate it. Exchanging wedding rings/bands is by far the most significant part of a wedding and a wedding ring always lands on the fourth finger. This is why you should make sure that the fourth finger of your right-hand remains unoccupied at least for the day.
Do not forget to get a stock of tissues

Do not forget to keep wafers with you

Do not leave for the venue without your vows

Some of us spend days to come up with a series of vows — it starts looking like a small diary by the time you realize you’re done. Nonetheless, one of the most common regrets among couples is, they often forget their vows they took hours to write either at their bedside or on the dresser or somewhere else. That’s why it’s crucial that you double-check everything before leaving for the ceremony.
Do not forget to arrange an emergency kit
Although it’s a happy day and you expect everything to go hunky-dory, there’s still a fair chance of bad luck befalling you. There can be a small injury or a minor accident. The best way to deal with such kind of a situation is to stay calm and not panic. Plus, if you have an emergency kit by your side, a teeny-tiny wound can be fixed then and there without calling a doctor to see to the emergency.

Do not forget to tip the vendors
