Although you might be inclined to doing everything yourself on your wedding day- realistically, you won’t have time!

There are so many things that need to come together at the same time, that it’s best to delegate responsibilities beforehand so that you can tend to the important stuff.

If you have multiple vendors coming, assign one person to take care of one vendor- this way they can deal with the minor issues that may arise with them, such as last minute touch ups on the cake.

If the parents of the bride or groom are taking on the food served at the reception, make sure they have enough help so they can enjoy themselves at the wedding too.

Here are some other things that I’ve found that may also be applicable to your wedding:

  1. After–wedding cleanup
  2. Airport pickup and drop off of guests
  3. Babysitting and entertainment of children at the ceremony and reception venues
  4. Baking the cake
  5. Chairs and tables setup
  6. Checking on restroom baskets, religious items, seat reservation cards, etc.
  7. Delivery of gifts to the couple’s home
  8. Delivery of guest baskets to the hotels
  9. Deposit of gift checks in the bank
  10. Special transportation (vintage cars, etc.)
  11. Confirmation and on schedule calls
  12. Collection of disposable cameras
  13. Distribution of party favors
  14. Guest pickup at the house of worship or ceremony and drop off at the reception venue
  15. Guest pick up from and drop off at hotels
  16. Party decoration
  17. Preparation of party favors
  18. Invitation hand or computer calligraphy
  19. Food preparation
  20. Returning rentals (tuxedos, chairs, tables, etc.)
  21. Serving of food
  22. Preparation of desserts
