Since I’m pretty Type A, I love to be prepared for everything, with a timeline and all the details mapped out. I can’t help it – I just really hate to be unprepared.
And, with bridal parties, most of your bridesmaids will care about the details as much as you, so they appreciate your schedule and timeline. Your groomsmen, however, will not. You’ll hand them a lovely little schedule of the activities and where they need to be and when, and they think, ‘Great.’ And, the second you turn around, in the trash goes that lovely little schedule you worked so diligently on.
Heartbreaking right? Well, I found this great idea: a pocket schedule. You can give it to the guys to keep in their pockets. Heck, you can even give it to your bridesmaids and close family members who need to know what is going on during your wedding day. The guys can put them in their pants pockets or suit coats, and the ladies can drop them in their clutches.
Genius, right? Yes, yes, I think so. And, if you are wondering what these lovely little pocket schedules look like, Miss Apple Cider posted about the pocket schedules she created for her wedding. They are adorable and match her invitation suite and wedding theme perfectly.
The best part? She created these little beauties on her computer and printed them out home. It’s such an easy DIY project!!
With my DOC package came a timeline development. So, while I won’t be creating the timeline, I fully plan on creating similar pocket schedules for the guests like she’s done. It is so practical and convenient.
Did you have a wedding day schedule or did you just wing it?
