After 32 years in the wedding industry, you could say we’ve experienced our fair share of weddings (seriously though – we’ve seen some things).
With age comes wisdom, with wisdom comes knowledge, and while, as a catering company, our primary focus on our bride’s big day is ensuring all goes well with the food and drinks, our knowledge extends far beyond the boundaries of the kitchen.
After each weekend, we gather our team and share stories from the events, what went well and what we didn’t expect. We are constantly taking mental notes and looking for ways to improve the day for both our brides, her guests, and us! A result of all of this continuous evaluation has been the organic formulation of a list that could be titled, ‘things you don’t think you’ll need on your wedding day but will be surprised that you do’.
There’s nothing worse than realizing you forgot something you didn’t think to bring that ends up being vitally important! So here is our composite list of the things we often notice end up left behind or things the bridal party often come running to us asking for.
This may be a surprising one, not something you think to keep on hand, but is probably one of the top most requested items we’re asked for. Think of all the tags you’ll be cutting, spare threads/strings you’ll want to trim, any packages you have to open. These really do come in handy. We even had someone borrow scissors from us to cut his pants into shorts one hot July night… but that’s a story for another day.
