In reality you can make a wedding checklist with a hundred items and you probably should. But hey, this is the beach, and whether you are having a small gathering of your closest friends or inviting your closest five-hundred friends, there are a few critical items you have to do to make sure the day ends in an "I do" and not a disappointment. We've all been to weddings and no matter how well you plan your event things can get overlooked. Here are ten essential items that a noted wedding planner suggested. With this list you're sure to avoid the biggest pitfalls of the day. Don't worry, no matter what, at the end of the day a Topsail Island beach wedding is a great wedding.
The Official- Whether you are having a justice of the peace or a religious wedding make sure to give them a friendly reminder a few days ahead of time. One nightmare story shared with us was the minister forgot to arrive. It was an honest mistake, he just forgot.
The Dress-On the big day make sure to have someone in charge of the dress. Making sure it is clean and pressed, and above all, that it actually gets to the wedding destination.
Reserve Your Location Early-Nothing is worse than having the perfect mate and being unable to have your wedding at your dream location because you didn't book early.
Invitations-A wedding planner mentioned a wedding nightmare. The new couple forgot to send out the invitations. It just slipped through the cracks. Hey, it happens.
Rings-We've all seen it happen in the movies, but it does happen in reality as well. Make sure to have one person in charge of keeping the rings.
Photographer-Make sure to interview your photographer to discuss the pictures you want well before the big day.
Marriage license-Let's face it, without this nothing happens. Sadly some couples forget this critical step.
Restrooms-Beach vacations can present a challenge, but not having restrooms for guests isn't one you want. Make sure to take this into account when planning a beach wedding.
Parking-Make sure you've addressed parking issues. Is there enough? Will you need valets? Is handicap parking available? All these things are important to address before the big day.
