- Finalising your ceremony
- What to wear in memory
- Gifts for attendants
Follow Up Guests
Follow up guests who have not replied to your invitations and confirm if they are coming to your wedding or not.
Prepare emails to thank guests for attending your wedding – and possibly giving you gifts.
If you’re having a sit-down party after the ceremony, write down a seating plan, if that’s your thing. Alternatively, just let people sit where they wish; or consider having a stand up party where people move around, eat, drink and get to know each other.

After Wedding Celebrations
If you’re going to carry on the celebrations the day after your wedding with perhaps a brunch or BBQ or picnic, let people know where it will be, and when, as well as whether you want them to bring anything.
Check your ceremony – are there any final bits you wish to change? Let me, your celebrant, know.
Create memories. There may be people who have died who, you’d like to remember in a special way on your wedding day. For example, you could wear (or have somewhere on your body) your mum’s wedding ring or engagement ring; or your dad’s watch; or a particular piece of jewellery that has some meaning to you and brings back special memories of them.
Are you having attendants? If so, is there some small gift you wish to give them for then to remember your day? Perhaps you want to wait until you see a perfect photo that captures you and them on your wedding day? Gift it up in a nice frame.
