12 Wedding Day Details Not To Miss

The key to a standout celebration? It's the little things that count.

Directions & Signage

Why: You don't want your guests getting lost on the way to the chapel. If you spell it out for them, they're more likely to be on time, and your entire wedding day has a better chance of running smoothly.
How to do it: First, include a map or add a link to Google Maps on your wedding website so that guests have an idea of where they're going. As a safeguard, consider including a map from the ceremony site to the reception venue in your programs or your invites. For the day-of, create signage for each wedding spot (the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception) directing guests where to go. If it's an outdoor wedding, make or buy a wooden sign and paint it with an arrow. For a more sophisticated soiree, consider using printed black-and-white-framed signage in a scripted font.
