5 things not to forget on the day of your daughters wedding

Congratulations on your daughter’s wedding.

The day of the wedding is going to be a hectic one. You’re going to have so much on your plate that you may forget some things.

As a live wedding artist, I have a good few weddings under my belt and I get to see wha happens behind the scenes . I’ve also learned to carry an emergency bag…just for those little nuances.

Well, it’s time to start making a list for you of what not to forget on this very special day! Here are 5 examples.

Your camera

You don’t want to forget your camera on the day of your daughter’s wedding. There are so many things that could go wrong, and it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Here are some tips for remembering everything you need:

  • Bring a charger and memory card (or two). You might not be able to take pictures mid-ceremony but you will for sure be snap happy during the reception. And don’t forget extra batteries in case one dies while taking pictures at the reception later in the evening.
  • Make sure all lenses are attached securely before leaving home–you don’t want them falling off while traveling! If there are any filters or other accessories that need attaching onto lenses, now is probably as good a time as any since we’ve covered most major pieces of equipment already anyway…

Your phone charger

You’re going to be on your phone a lot. You’re going to take pictures, send texts and emails, maybe even FaceTime calls to relatives who couldn’t attend. You need to make sure that your phone battery doesn’t run out while all of this is happening!

  • Bring your charger with you on the day of
  • Don’t forget to bring it with you in case of emergencies like forgetting where your car keys are or getting locked out of your hotel room (or both).
  • Make sure that there’s enough room for all three pieces – phone charger + cable + wall socket adapter – so that nothing gets lost or separated from each other during transport

Something to wear if it gets cold

As a wedding artist in Scotland, I know how the temperament can drop after hours. A sweater or cardigan is a must-have item. If it’s cold, you might need to wear a jacket as well. You don’t want to be shivering in the photos or looking uncomfortable because of how cold it is outside!

The right shoes!

  • Wear comfortable shoes.
  • wear heels for the ceremony and photos, but they’ll make your feet hurt and you’ll probably fall over at the most inopportune time after a few glasses of wine.
  • Don’t wear flats that could hurt your feet either; flip flops are a no-no unless you want to look like an idiot when they’re wet or dirty (or both).
  • Make sure they match your outfit! If it’s going to be hot outside, consider wearing some fancy sandals .And if it’s cold out? Well then maybe get some long boots instead of sandals…. just saying 😉

Your list. Don’t forget anything!

The day of your daughter’s wedding is a whirlwind of emotions, and it can be easy to forget things in the excitement. Don’t! You want to make sure that on this day, you don’t forget anything–especially those things that will make her feel loved and appreciated.

To help keep track of all the details, consider writing down a list of things that need doing before the ceremony begins. This way, if something does slip through the cracks (and it probably will), at least there’s something written down as proof that it was supposed to be done by someone else who didn’t do their part!


I hope this article has helped you to avoid some common mistakes, and that your daughter’s wedding day goes as smoothly as possible. With the right preparation and a little bit of luck, everything should go off without any hitches! You can book me as a live wedding artist to add something extra to your daughter’s day.
