Atmosphere Productions: 3 Things That Could Go Wrong At Your Wedding That You Need To Know About NOW!
Your Guests Got Lost Because YOU Gave Them WRONG Directions:
This scenario happened to a client of ours over 20 years ago before we had GPS, Yahoo Maps and Google Maps. Our clients mistakenly, wrote the wrong directions inside the invitations and a bunch of guests got lost. Today, it hardly seems possible.... but not everyone has GPS, Yahoo Maps or Google Maps. So, drive the route of your directions to make sure it's correct and landmarks have not changed. Check with the Town or State Departments of Transportation to see if any roadworks or detours are planned. Finally, check with the facility owners. They will typically know if there are any events that are happening around the time of your wedding that may cause havoc for your guests.
Not Putting Enough Postage On Those Invitations:
Our families in Canada regularly invite us to weddings across the boarding. Sometimes they forget the extra postage. The Post Office will take no mercy and unceremonious stamp it "insufficient postage" and return it to you. The problem is, this may take 3-4 weeks before YOU realize the error and the invitations start rolling back to you. Almost ALL invitations need extra postage. Get one invitation weighed at the post office before purchasing stamps. DON'T try to figure this out by yourself.
Something WILL Get Screwed Up With The Marriage License:
You CANNOT go the day before to get your Marriage License. So plan well in advance and physically GO to the Town Hall IN the Town that you plan to marry to find out what you need to do. There are so many rules surrounding Marriage Licenses. Get these instructions in writing, so that you can refer to them later.
