You’ve probably been planning your wedding day for months (if not years), and you’re finally feeling ready to go, but here are a few key details that nearly all bride and grooms forget for their big day…

1. Breakfast!
No matter how many butterflies you have in there, it’s vital to get something in your stomach. You don’t want your vows to be interrupted by tummy rumbles, or worse, a full-on faint.

2. An outfit for the morning
You’ve been so focused on your wedding dress that you’ve forgotten all about what to wear while you’re getting ready! We recommend a pretty robe (it will look lovely in photos) or a shirt so you can remove it without pulling it over your head and ruining your hair and make-up.

3. The right underwear
There’s no point in spending hundreds of pounds on a beautiful gown, if it’s going to be ruined with a big chunky bra strap poking out. Think about the underwear you need to create clean lines and try it on with your gown and practise moving around in the whole outfit.

4. A big day plan
Think you only need a schedule for the ceremony? Think again. Write down timings for all the key, big day events, (mingling, wedding breakfast, speeches, cake-cutting, first dance etc.) print it out and give it to your bridal party and your suppliers.

5. The person in charge
You may also want to assign someone the role of 'point of contact' on your wedding day (you’ll be a bit busy!), so if there are any supplier emergencies or questions they can help out. Maids of honour, best men and parents are all good candidates.

6. An emergency kit
It sucks, but accidents do happen. Pack an wedding day emergency kit of things like: safety pins, bobby pins, deodorant, mints and paracetamol to help you out.

7. Your speech/vows
You may have rehearsed it a thousand times, but with pressure and nerves you will need a printed copy on the big day. Make sure someone responsible has copies and there’s a spare electronic version just in case!

8. Rainy day plan
British weather is guaranteed to be one thing – unpredictable. Have a few pretty umbrellas handy in case of downpours, and make sure there’s somewhere under-cover for your guests.

9. Transport and photo wranglers
If you’re travelling from your ceremony to your reception, you’ll need a few helpers to make sure guests know where they’re going. The same is true for your group photos, you’ll need some helpers to round up groups and get them photo ready. Assign this role to bridesmaids or ushers before the big day, and make it clear that they’ll need to help.

10. Flat shoes
You might love your bridal heels now, but seven hours down the line, your toes may well disagree. Have some flats handy so you can enjoy the dancefloor.

11. Somewhere for gifts
You’ll be given lots of gifts and maybe even envelopes stuffed with cash (wahoo!) so you’ll need somewhere safe to keep them. Ask your venue if there’s somewhere to store it or ask someone trustworthy to pack everything up and transport it at the end of the evening.
