Stress…..arrgghhh! If you are planning your wedding, that is certainly a feeling that you have cone across right?

Well, there is a solution to being able to control that and make sure that everything you want to occur on your wedding day and in what order can….you just need to make sure its in your run sheet.

Your run sheet is the bible in any wedding planners tool kit; its where all the detail is kept. But, do you know really why we invest so much time in it? Its because it’s the one tool that you use and refer to all the time to remove the stress from your day.

There are so many moving parts to a wedding, there are lots of people responsible for little things and they cannot be forgotten.

A few tips that we also include in our run sheets:

  • Contact details (including mobile of landline that will be answered on the day or time of your wedding – no point having the venue co-ordinator’s land line for a Saturday afternoon, they won’t be at their desk!

  • List everything by time, but also allocate a number – it’s an easier reference point;

  • Circulate with every supplier and your venue; and

  • If you can allocate someone on the day to be in charge of actioning all items and checking all tasks are done; if you don’t have a sibling or friend or work colleague that can take that on, or your don’t want to, then you can hire your very own Hidden Bridesmaid to do that!
