Rebecca and Bryan's rock opera wedding is now legend around these parts, but this little tidbit of advice may just go overlooked with all the razzle dazzle of the wedding itself. And boy, did it dazzle. Rebecca had lots of little details that were important to her and wished that she had listed them out and delegated them to someone to make sure they happened.
Much like an “oh shit kit,” which pulls together all your most necessary items, this “oh shit list” is a list of the most important things you want to make sure go down as planned. This could be specific decor, something special in the ceremony, or a specific playlist happening at the right time. Whatever the case, here's Rebecca's sage advice for safeguarding all those priority details:
My final advice is to have an “oh shit” list. What will make you say “Oh shit!” if it doesn't happen on your big day? I wish I took a half hour to sit down the day before my wedding and write a list of the most important little details to me. Then I wish I'd handed it over to someone else!
Our takeaway here is this: use your wedding planner, day-of coordinator, efficient wedding party member, trusted family member, or a combination to keep an eye on the details that matter most to you. We don't mean everything, just those special details on which you'd like an extra set of eyes. Keep the list as small as possible to keep things realistic.
Have details you want someone to watch over? Maybe like seriously epic confetti canons for your kiss, perhaps?
